JovePlayer, a home theater PC software, adds personal video recording functions
8 Dimensions International LLC unveils JovePlayer 2.2, a Home Theater PC software that uses TV and remote control as primary user interface. It allows your PC to blend naturally into your normal entertainment environment, while not losing PC's flexibility and power. It is capable of playing various formats of encoded video and audio clips, including MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, DIVX, WMV, DVD, VCD, SVCD, MP3, and WMA.
Unlike other software Home Theater PC solutions in the market, using a hardware REALmagic XCard decoder card from Sigma Designs, JovePlayer provides extremely high quality decoding and TV/HDTV/VGA signal encoding abilities with minimal CPU consumption. The signal quality is even better than your hardware DVD player, and miles ahead of video card TV out and other scan converter based solutions.
With the newest features in 2.2 release, a user can view pictures, surf web, and even record TV shows and perform timeshifting using a hardware MPEG2 capture/encoder card such as Hauppauge WinTV PVR 250/350. It's a complete home theater solution for users’ entertainment needs.
