Miglia Technology on Tuesday announced
EvolutionTV, a new USB 2.0 digital video recorder (DVR) peripheral compatible with the Mac. It records video using MPEG 2 and 4 codecs, and also supports DivX, the popular MPEG-4 based video compression technology.
The EvolutionTV device has a coaxial cable connector, as well as composite video, S-Video in and RCA stereo audio inputs. It also supports Decisionmark’s TitanTV Electronic Program Guide in the United States, enabling users to find shows they want to watch and schedule them for recording. And support for MPEG-4 means video recorded using EvolutionTV can be used directly by iMovie 5 without requiring any conversion first.
Miglia expects to ship EvolutionTV in mid-March for US$279, €209 or £149. System requirements call for a Mac with USB 2.0, G4/800MHz or faster, 256MB RAM and Mac OS X v10.3.x and higher.
