London, England – 30 January 2007 - Hauppauge Digital, the world leader in PC TV technology, today announced its entire range of TV tuners, for desktop and laptop PCs, is compatible with Media Center in Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system. Owners of PCs running the new operating system can install a Hauppauge tuner to watch live TV full screen or in a resizable window on their PCs.
The new software drivers will be included with all Hauppauge product shipped from today, and existing owners of Hauppauge products who are upgrading to Vista can download the drivers free from www.hauppauge.co.uk. Owners of PCs running Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Ultimate will see the message "tuner not installed" if they select Live TV without first installing a compatible TV card.
"With the introduction of Media Center as a standard part of the most popular versions of Windows Vista, the demand for TV cards is going to multiply," said Yehia Oweiss, European VP of Sales, Hauppauge Digital. "We can offer Vista users the widest range of TV tuners to give them live TV on the desktop or laptop, expanding their entertainment experience."
Hauppauge is initially offering a total of 13 TV tuner models for Windows Vista Media Center, priced from £49.99 inc. VAT.
