VideOh Finally Launched

Adaptec, promise to revolutionize media access through the PC by finally launching their VideOh! DVD Media Center, a comprehensive solution that enables consumers to convert their existing home PC into a media center. With Adaptec VideOh! DVD Media Center, home-PC users can easily create, control, store and enjoy digital content, including TV shows, home movies and photos. Users can choose television programs they want to watch from a free online programming guide, record, pause, rewind and replay live TV and edit and burn shows to high-quality DVDs or video CDs - using their existing PC.

Consumers are looking for new ways to improve their home entertainment experience, including personal video recorders (PVRs) and DVD creation. Until recently, the only option was a costly new PC, said Jeff Loebbaka, vice president and general manager, Adaptec's Desktop Solutions Group. Adaptec's VideOh! DVD Media Center gives home-PC users the ability to leverage their existing computer to gain better control over their home entertainment at a fraction of the cost of a new PC. It's a smart way to manage and enjoy digital content on your existing computer.

Adaptec VideOh! DVD Media Center is a complete hardware and software solution, which includes a TV tuner, MPEG-2 hardware encoder, free access to an online programming guide, as well as software for personal video recording and full-resolution DVD or video-CD creation. The solution is available in both a PCI-card and external version, which allows home-PC users to connect the device to their computers quickly and simply.

With Adaptec VideOh! DVD Media Center, consumers can:

Gain more control over their digital content

Connecting a television video source (cable, satellite, set-top box or antenna) to the VideOh! DVD Media Center enables consumers to watch live TV on their home PC. With the included remote control, users can surf channels and control live TV with the ability to pause, rewind, fast-forward, replay and view in slow motion. Consumers can also save their shows on DVD or VCD to watch later on their TV set or laptop. The solution enables users to watch TV shows in PVR mode at full D-1 broadcast resolution (720 x 480).

Home-PC users also have free access to a Web-based electronic programming guide to schedule daily or weekly recordings of favorite TV shows.

Preserve personal videos in long-lasting digital format

VideOh! DVD Media Center allows consumers to convert home movies (from camcorder, VHS, Hi8 or existing digital media files) to full-resolution, high-quality DVDs in three easy steps. Media Center lets home-PC users burn video content to CDs (using a CD burner) and DVDs (with a DVD burner).

Customers have access to a full version of Sonic MyDVD software to edit footage, add music and create scene transitions, special effects, customized menus and more.

Easily share digital photos with friends and family

With VideOh! DVD Media Center, users can easily customize slide shows featuring their digital photos and favorite music. They can also integrate the slide shows into their home videos then burn to DVD or video CD to share with family and friends.

VideOh! DVD Media Center

VideOh! DVD Media Center is a complete solution, which includes a 125-channel, cable-ready TV tuner and MPEG-1/MPEG-2 encoding hardware. The package also contains a remote control, audio/video cable and a complete version of the award-winning Sonic MyDVD software for editing and burning DVDs and video CDs.

Price and Availability

Adaptec VideOh! DVD Media Center will be available in mid-June at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of USD 199.99 (USB version) and USD 169.99 (PCI version) at leading retail stores, including Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry's and MicroCenter, as well as www.adaptec.com .

This is just a TV tuner card that does all the same stuff that other TV tuner cards have done for years now. I don't know how they decided that it was revolutionary new technology, cause it's not. Maybe if the external version was also a DVD writer. Now that might be cool.

LOL, this is gay. Cheap as chips video cards can do this shit, and quite well too. My GeForce4 Ti4800se also does all this shit, and so do most other cards nowadays, anyone else see a big flop????

oh wow... this is amazing. Stupid f**king company, too bad they're a little behind the rest of the world, I guess they haven't heard of a... TV Tuner card. And why is programming so f**king hard?! I've been learning C and I'm trying to learn how to program Polygonal games, and it's f**king impossible. So much math shit and weird ass programming statements and loops and shit needed, and none of it makes sense. Seriously I'd have to become a geek to learn this shit, stay home all the time and read books and go to those homosexual programming summer camps with faggits who've never seen a pussy in their lives.

Too expensive to be successful. All you have to do is to buy a TV Tuner Card and ShowShifter (or equivalent software).I working with someone in producing a Visual Basic version of a Media Centre program, for free! (Although its no-where near completed).

"I've been learning C and I'm trying to learn how to program Polygonal games, and it's f**king impossible."Because you're a dumbass. Stick with your future at McDonald's you dumbass and get use to the line..."do fries go with that shake?"Yes and those so-called faggots and geeks that did learn programming and put in the hard work and effort to do so, besides jerking off like you are now making 6 and 7 figure salaries. Living in their OWN homes and driving their OWN cars not sponging off their mommies and daddies like you. And with all the money they are making at a relatively young age, they manage to snag a few hot women here and there. Being a millionarie and driving $80,000+ cars will do that. Yes. You keep to your minimum wage welfare jobs, you dumbass, and us "geeks" will be the ones who are your bosses. Yup. Hot women just lovvvvvve minimum wage earning assholes that live at home with mommy and daddy.

TO: You wish you knew C++at 23:19 9/7/2003ahahahaha, my gawd, you make me laugh. Your pathetic, computer-ridden life makes me laugh. Trust me, no women is gonna ever want you, ever. Your pathetic insult for a flame gave me a good lark today. Hey, and guess what, i don't f**king care. You're just some faggit with high hopes that hopes to gawd one day all of his staying at home will eventually lead to something bigger, better, and brighter, but unfortunately, you are mistaken. Word of advice, why are you still talking? Go out and find a bridge and put yourself out of your misery. My gawd, lol, some geek trying to flame me is just funny. I know so many f**king people, I just wish you lived around my area, so you can see what a real life is made of; before the end of school, i beat the shit out of one of my "friends" who backstabbed me at a party, he tried to impress some of his friends from another school by tripping me to be stomped by those motherf**kers, well unfortunately for him, I had about 80+ ppl backing me up at school, so after I called him back and beat the shit outta him 1 on 1, he got f**king stomped by all my backup, mother f**ker didn't look so tough without his other friends around. I've spent my life living outside, f**king doing the most I can in my youth, not wasting it sitting in front of a f**king computer like you. I've got an IQ of 156, and because I don't spend all of my time at home, I don't know how to program in C... yet. Of course I'll learn, in my spare time, after I come home from a fun and crazy day and I've got time to burn before i go to sleep. It's funny because I lead an incredibly amazing life, and in a couple hours at nite at a time, I learn exactly what you've wasted your entire life on. My gawd man, don't even try to wish for shit you'll never get, stuff doesn't just "come" to you, you have to work for it. I go out, I get girlfriends, I work out, I go driving every nite, unless of course I'm tired, then I'll
