Hauppauge Digital, Inc., through its Hauppauge Computer Works subsidiary, has been a leader in bringing TV functionality to the PC since 1992. The Company is the worldwide leading developer and manufacturer of analog and digital video, TV and data broadcast receiver products for personal computers, with an estimated worldwide installed base of over 2.5 million. Hauppauge's products allow PC users to watch television on their PC screens, videoconference and create both still video images and digital video movies. Hauppauge's flagship product, the WinTV, is the leading branded TV card in the retail market.
The WinTV family consists of several models that include features such as FM Radio, IR remote control, digital video recording and digital TV reception. Although each model has distinct features, this family of products shares the same basic functionality: they all allow a PC user to have TV in a resizable window on their screen.
The WinTV is used by home users and business professionals. Business users use the WinTV to keep track of breaking news by watching a TV news channel in a small window of their PC screen. Home users like to be able to watch their favorite TV shows while they answer e-mail or surf the net.
One of the biggest growth markets for PC based TV receivers are in the home entertainment centers. PC's are evolving to be the center of home entertainment systems, and TV is an integral part of home entertainment. The WinTV is a natural part of any PC based home entertainment system.
Also, there is a worldwide shift from analog to digital TV. In a few years, analog TV broadcasts will be completely replaced by digital TV broadcasts, and PC based TV receivers such as the WinTV can take advantage of the benefits of digital TV broadcasts: better pictures and clearer sound.
