ReplayTV announced today that it will introduce a new Digital Video Recorder (DVR) software solution in 2006. The new software application is designed for the personal computer, which globally is the fastest growing video entertainment platform.
To initiate its new strategy, ReplayTV has teamed with Hauppauge Computer Works, the leading manufacturer of TV receivers for PCs, to create an affordable and innovative PC-based DVR solution. ReplayTV plans to bundle its PC DVR software application with Hauppauge’s market-leading WinTV-PVR tuner/encoder PC cards beginning in 2006 for the North American market.
Today’s announcement follows a successful long term restructuring of ReplayTV by the company’s parent company, D&M Holdings Inc.. ReplayTV will soon complete the sale of all remaining 5500 Series DVR products, completing the first phase of the transformation of the brand from a hardware manufacturer to a leading provider of advanced DVR software and services to consumers of entertainment PCs. Today’s announcement has no impact on existing ReplayTV DVR customers who will continue to be fully supported with EPG service for their ReplayTV DVR products.
ReplayTV will announce product details and pricing in 2006.
