Hauppauge has launched a sub-£100 device that transmits TV captured on your home PC to a remote device.
TV Anywhere is a USB2 digital TV receiver and PVR which plugs into your home PC and TV antenna socket allowing you to record television programmes.
The software then uses the home broadband connection to deliver live TV or recordings to any device with an internet connection. So that could include a Wi-Fi equipped laptop sitting in a hotspot or mobile phone.
The software detects the connection quality of the mobile device and compresses the video, allowing for connection through Wi-Fi and 3G, and can be viewed on any browser.
"Appointment TV is dying," said Yehia Oweiss, UK managing director of Hauppauge Digital.
"People are recording more and more TV and watching what they want, when they want.
"Timeshifting was first introduced with the VCR, and later enhanced with the PVR. Placeshifting is the new frontier – watching recorded TV where you want it, and moving live TV out of the home."
Although, as its name suggests, TV Anywhere is designed to deliver TV programmes, it can be used to send any media content – video, audio or still images – from home PC to mobile.
