InterVideo and Decisionmark Offer Web-Based Recording SchedulingWinDVR and TitanTV.com Let Users Record TV on a PC with a Single Click from Anywhere on the Web (November 27, 2001)
"This is a win-win situation for consumers," said Jack Perry, president and CEO of Decisionmark. "Providing American viewers with the power to easily schedule the recording of their favorite shows on the PC, via WinDVR and TitanTV.com, will forever change the television viewing and recording experience."
"Unfortunately, much of technology succeeds only in creating more complexity," said Steve Ro, CEO and co-founder of InterVideo. "However, InterVideo and Decisionmark have teamed up to make watching and recording your favorite TV shows easier than ever before. The combination of WinDVR and TitanTV.com transform any computer into a smarter, digital version of your living room TV and VCR combo."
WinDVR is a software-only product that allows users to watch TV programs from a TV tuner source and encode it into a MPEG-2 file, in real time. MPEG-2 is the technology that DVD movies are based on, so the recording quality is excellent and the file size is small. With WinDVR, TV programs can be watched live -- with the added capabilities of time-shift features like pause, fast-forward and personalized instant replays that regular televisions can't do -- or they can be saved to your hard drive for future viewing.
Decisionmark's TitanTV programming guide is the only household EPG with Personal Video Recorder (PVR)-enabling capabilities. It contains a robust offering of easy-to-navigate TV programming available at a consumer's household. Once a user visits TitanTV.com, the user can click to find the TV shows available at their street address and automatically schedule InterVideo's WinDVR to record any listed TV show, without manually keying in program information.
WinDVR is available for immediate purchase at InterVideo's Web site at intervideo.com.
