Pinnacle Systems, the consumer division of Avid Technology, Inc., provides solutions to enjoy TV programs wherever. This is ideal for European fans who would like to see sporting competitions held on the other side of the globe, but who, due to difficult timetables or the time difference, can’t make it in front of their TV to watch their favourite athletes in action. With affordable solutions like award-winning Pinnacle PCTV Diversity Stick Soloand award-winning Pinnacle Video Transfer, users won’t need to choose between sleeping and missing the competition or watching the match (at 3am in the middle of a working week); with Pinnacle’s products they can easily have the best of both without sacrifice.

Thanks to Pinnacle PCTV DVB-T Diversity Stick Solo, an ultra-compact USB 2.0 TV tuner that allows users to watch digital terrestrial TV (DVB-T) on their laptop, people can stay tuned anywhere they go. This state-of-the art TV tuner stick includes two tuners that use Antenna Diversity technology for maximum reception strength. With Antenna Diversity, the signals of two antennas get combined to allow for stable reception even in weak signal areas such as outdoors or in mobile environments. Alternatively, the two integrated tuners can be used in dual tuner mode to watch two shows at a time with Picture-in-Picture, or to record one show while watching another one.

This pocket device not only lets users watch their favourite broadcasted sporting events on their laptop while at home or on the go, but also allows programming recordings while they are sleeping, and even program the PC to shut down automatically after the recording is done. Moreover, the timeshifting feature allows users to pause, rewind and restart live TV at the click of a button.

Pinnacle SystemFor users who want to watch the competitions on the go, Pinnacle Video Transfer makes it as easy as clicking one button. This innovative device lets fans easily record a game from their television directly to their PSP, video iPod® or other portable device, without the need of a PC. Users can plug Pinnacle Video Transfer to their TV, set-top box, VCR, DVD and with pressing one button, the device converts analogue video into digital while transferring it directly into an iPod video, iPod nano (3rd generation), iPod classic, Sony PSP, Sony PSP slim and others.
