Miglia Announces SDK for AlchemyTV DVR

Application now supports an open plug-in architecture (June 24, 2004)

Miglia Technology, a global technology solution provider that manufactures, markets and supports a range of own and licensed branded products, has today announced that the AlchemyTV DVR application now supports an open plug-in architecture. This allows third party developers to extend the functionalities of the AlchemyTV DVR TV tuner/Video capture card by creating plug-ins.

Miglia has made the SDK for the post-processing plug-in available to third party developers and welcomes any person or organisation who wishes to enhance AlchemyTV DVR via a plug-in.

Thanks to the newly available SDK, independent software developer Fabio Verna has created DivTV, a plug-in enabling the export to VCD (MPEG-1) and S-VCD (MPEG-2). Thanks to this plug-in, any movie recorded with AlchemyTV DVR can be exported to VCD/S-VCD from within the application.

Eric Ferraz, Product Marketing Director, Miglia Technology, commented: "The AlchemyTV DVR product has been extremely successful for us. We are still continuing to implement the features that are being suggested through our development forums. However, many of our customers like to develop their own specific feature rich plug-ins. We have made this much easier for them by supporting a plug-in architecture and creating a platform to distribute them to other customers on the Miglia website."

Technical Support:
The software development team can be reached via e-mail ([email protected]) for questions concerning plug-in development. All other enquiries not relating to plug-in development should be sent to [email protected] (general queries) or [email protected] (technical support queries).
