ATI launches TV wonder 650 Combo USB, 600 PCI and 600 PCI Express TV tuners

ATI announced three new TV tuners today that enable HDTV on the PC. The tuners are called the ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo USB, TV wonder 600 PCI Express and the TV Wonder 600 PCI.

The TV wonder 650 Combo USB carries an MSRP of $149 and has two TV tuners inside allowing for users to watch one channel of over-the-air TV/HDTV and record another. This is the USB version of the PCI Express tuner launched in July. The USB tuner is also capable of recording unencrypted digital TV (ClearQAM).

The TV Wonder 600 and TV Wonder 600 PCI Express are the same card utilizing different PCI interfaces, both of which will retail for $99 and offer ClearQAM recording. The tuners use Catalyst Media Center software that offers features like place shifting to view TV programs in different environments.

The software enables unrestricted programming to be converted with one click for use on most portable video players. The TV Wonder 650 Combo USB allows users to switch between digital and analog programs and record an analog program while watching digital programming or vice versa.

“No other company offers this exceptional choice of connectivity and configuration in TV tuner PC products,” said Matt Skynner, vice president of marketing, Graphics Products Group, AMD. “Our graphics pedigree is built on long-standing leadership in TV and video on the PC. The ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo USB and ATI TV Wonder 600 PCI/PCI Express, offered through VisionTek, take the best of our company’s digital TV experience and enable amazing HDTV on PCs today.”
