Will a combination of "God's machine" and Intel's worst nightmare create a portable video revolution? That's what TiVo and AMD are aiming for with todays combined launch of TiVoToGo and AMD's Alchemy chip.
While the AMD chip saves battery power by allowing for low power (0.5 Watt) processing of video images, the new TiVo service enables users to effortlessly transfer video content from the digital video recorder to a computer or portable device.
Although TiVo has been struggling to reach profitability, users generally love the product. Michale Powell, chairman of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has called the device "God's machine".
The AMD chip competes with Intel's Xscale processor.
TiVo chief executive Mike Ramsay will speak at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Veags this Friday. The company is expected to announce partnerships with companies that are developing new products designed to work with TiVoToGo.
There's no word about AMD joining its new ally on stage.
