About InstaMedia 2.0

InstaMedia 2.0 is digital home theatre software for the PC that is available to OEM partners. Using a remote control and InstaMedia's elegantly-designed ten-foot interface, consumers can browse photo collections, listen to music, and watch and record TV and videos to DVD. InstaMedia is designed to enable users to do a variety of activities at the same time such as listening to music while browsing photos, watching a video, or playing a DVD. The InstaMedia user interface can be customized by moving or deleting media access buttons, changing the interface background, and displaying company logos.

InstaMedia 2.0 offers new support for Digital TVs, such as the DVB-T system, which has been widely adopted throughout Europe. The DVB-T system includes a variety of popular TV viewing features including auto scan and time-shifting. Though Digital TV is pervasive throughout Europe, each region has different system requirements. To help OEM partners, such as PC/TV tuner card manufacturers, successfully market their products in Europe, InstaMedia is compatible in multiple regions regardless of these different TV system requirements. InstaMedia will support the US Digital TV system by the 2nd quarter of 2005.
