Hauppauge Computer Works Inc. has announced the WinTV-HVR-1975, a USB based TV receiver for Windows and Linux systems with multi-format TV support for both North American and Europe. The WinTV-HVR-1975 has built-in support for North America NTSC and European PAL TV, plus ATSC HD and clear QAM digital cable TV support in North America and DVB-T, DVB-T2 and DVB-C support in Europe.

The WinTV-HVR-1975 is part of the WinTV-HVR-19XX family of high performance TV receivers. All models in the family have hardware video encoders which convert NTSC and PAL TV programs into MPEG-2, thereby reducing the CPU requirements of the host systems.

"Our professional TV receiver customers have been looking for a universal TV tuner for Europe and North America, and the WinTV-HVR-1975 supports the most popular TV formats used in both regions. For example, the DVB-C TV format is used in many European countries for digital cable TV, and DVB-T2, the new high definition over-the-air broadcast format which started in the UK, is now spreading throughout Europe including Russia. Coupled with the support of NTSC, PAL, ATSC and DVB-T, the WinTV-HVR-1975 delivers a TV receiver which is as close to universal as possible," said Ken Plotkin, President of Hauppauge.

"We expect the WinTV-HVR-1975 to be used in Linux based systems for digital signage, sports equipment, hospital patient entertainment systems and other TV watching and high speed data delivery applications."

For Windows system users, Hauppauge has developed both Windows 32-bit and 64-bit drivers and a TV application, WinTV v7.

For Linux system builders, Hauppauge has driver support which can be provided under NDA.
