Mobile TV and DVR on iPad and iPhone
equinux presents tizi - the first mobile TV hotspot for digital TV in Europe
14th December 2010 – equinux, the developer of iPad, iPhone and Mac solutions, introduces tizi - Europe's first mobile TV Hotspot – to the UK. Whether at home or on the go, tizi delivers digital TV programmes directly to the iPad or iPhone via an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot. The accompanying tizi app also enables users to record TV programmes by using the original high DTT quality to store recordings directly on an iOS device. Lightweight and portable, the tizi is small enough to carry around in a pocket and delivers hours of DVB-T/TNT/DTT programmes wirelessly. tizi is available from Apple Stores and www.tizi.tv from December priced at £149.95.
The latest chip technology allows tizi to bring crystal clear digital television to a touchscreen device - all without cables or an adaptor and even in remote locations. An integrated hotspot enables tizi to deliver the TV signal effortlessly. Users simply turn on, choose tizi's pre-configured WiFi network and start the app.
The free tizi app provides users with a guide to what is currently on TV and what’s on next. It also allows for programmes to be recorded* and stored for playback at a later date or copied via iTunes directly to a Mac or PC. The app is also fully compatible with iOS 4’s multitasking features meaning that during adverts, users can switch to other apps but keep the audio running in the background so they know when to tune back in.
iPad and iPhone users can watch TV on the go for up to 3.5 hours with tizi. The replaceable Li-Ion high performance battery can be recharged via a USB port on a laptop or even using an iPad power adaptor. During use, an LED status light displays the current battery level. The tizi has a high quality design with a piano black finish and weighs just 2.5 ounces.
"With tizi, equinux is once again at the forefront of innovation in the Apple arena. tizi represents state-of-the-art technology in both hardware and software" says equinux CEO, Till Schadde. "For us, tizi is a strategic expansion of our product range in the iPhone/iPad accessory arena, next to our existing consumer software and enterprise-level solutions."
