Pixela PIX-MPTV/U4W.

* This is the smallest USB2.0-compatible TV capture unit in the world. Yes! In the world! With dimensions of 107 x 103 x 20 mm and weighing just 200 g, the dinky and, frankly, heartbreakingly lovely PIX-MPTV/U4W will sit quietly and cutely in your hand like a little newborn chick. At least that's what the Pixel people would like you to believe. So you can sit (or stand, if you prefer) and stroke it to your heart's content. Luckily, however, that isn't all the midget PIX-MPTV/U4W can do. A veritable smorgasbord of electronic good ness, the U4W has a TV tuner from Japan Media Electronics, an MPEG encoder from Fujitsu and a "Ghost Reducer" from NEC--which, sadly, doesn't actually eject scary phantom spirits from your house, but just aims to make the picture sharper and clearer. Capable of recording in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 formats (at a highest resolution of 720 x 480 in MPEG-2), the U4W uses MPEG-I Layer 2 audio compression at a bit rate of up to 384 Kbps. Connections include portals for S-video, composite and analog sound.
