HP announce Pavilion 781 PC - This new PC allows you to digitally record TV programs directly to the hard drive and even pause live TV.
Hewlett-Packard have announced a new PC, the HP Pavilion 781. It incorporates an integrated digital TV card and remote control.
This allows you to preset and digitally record TV programs directly to the hard drive and even pause live TV. This facility means that you could pause the news while you get a cup of tea and come back and resume where you left off.
LONDON, 20 May 2002 -- Hewlett-Packard Company today announces the new HP Pavilion 781 "Football Special" PC, just in time for the World Cup. As well as all the top quality digital entertainment features you expect from an HP Pavilion, the 781 incorporates an integrated digital TV card and a remote control, so you can catch all the football action on your PC.
The HP Pavilion PC 781 allows you to preset and digitally record matches straight onto the hard drive, and even pause live TV so that nothing will spoil your enjoyment of the game. The playback facility means that if you are interrupted you can carry on watching from the point you left off, while it finishes the recording.
"What better way to immortalise England's winning goal than by capturing the moment as a digital image? Alternatively you can record the whole match onto your hard drive and relive all the greatest moments without losing any of the original atmosphere," said Dave Brabham, HP Pavilion product manager, UK. "With the new Pavilion 781, users not only benefit from extra TV and digital recording capabilities, but they also get a complete digital-imaging system."
Even if you need
to work on your PC while the game is on, you won't miss the match. Simply 'ghost'
the television picture into the background and carry on with your spreadsheet.
The one-touch screen capture feature allows you to save the most glorious moments of the match as digital images, then either print or email them as the action unfolds. The stunning video and audio quality will almost convince you that you are at the match as every goal and roar from the crowd is recorded perfectly.
HP Pavilion PCs make a stylish addition to any room with a rounded finish and chic colours. Side-hanging speakers, an in-built microphone, and a discreet CD slot create a slick feel to the HP Pavilion PC.
