AVerTV Bravo Hybrid PCI-Express TV Tuner
AverMedia Technologies Inc. has just announced that it will be rolling out its brand new AVerTV Bravo Hybrid PCI-E. This PCI Express TV tuner features support for HDTV, analog TV and FM Radio reception, providing you with more than enough entertainment options to keep you happy. Sounds like the perfect entertainment fodder at the office, especially when you’re knee deep in work and need to take a breather. Sounds ironic, I know, but somehow I find that taking five once you’re out of your ‘zone’ will often result in a sudden boost where productivity is concerned. Well, the AVerTV Bravo Hybrid PCI-E hopes to deliver you from the drudgery of everyday work, making it an excellent choice for watching analog cable TV contents under “My TV” of Media Center on XP and Vista. It has also received certification to function with Windows Vista Premium, so those who have upgraded to the latest (but not necessarily greatest) Windows version will be able to use the new TV tuner with the upgraded AVer MediaCenter that enables users to indulge in the Over-the-Cable unencrypted QAM channels.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release.
