Hauppauge announces Personal Logos for the HD PVR 2
Hauppauge Digital, Inc. has added a brand new feature to its latest gaming product announced recently during Gamescom, the HD PVR 2. The new Personal Logo feature allows gamers to add their own graphic to their recorded games so that everyone will see their logos whilst watching their game play on YouTube.
As seen in most professional broadcasts, the logo appears in the lower right hand corner of the TV screen, similar position to TV channel branding. This latest free upgrade to Hauppauge’s HD PVR 2 requires no additional CPUusage or any delays whilst recording and can be created in Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop or other graphics applications such as BMP, JPEG, GIF or PNG files.
Along with a pro-quality HD video encoder, Hauppauge’s latest release is considered the best yet allowing gamers to record in H.264, the video format used to make HD Blu-ray discs. To make installation easy, HD PVR 2 gaming edition has ‘no delay’ HDMI pass through. This means that gamers can connect HD PVR 2 between either a Sony Playstation®3 or Xbox® 360 and a HD TV set using HDMI and play and record their game live without any delay.
Gamers can share their best video game-play with friends on YouTube by using the included Showbiz application to record and then upload videos.
Now available at www.scan.co.uk or www.amazon.co.uk, HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is priced at £159.99 and features high definition HDMI and Component video recording up to 1080p/30, plus HDMI ‘no delay pass-through’ so gamers can record their game play while playing on a TV monitor. All cables necessary to record game-play, including HDMI in and out cables plus a special PS3 Component video cable are included.
HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition comes with Arcsoft ShowBiz, which has a record and YouTube upload button to make posting game recordings onto YouTube easy. To watch a video demonstration of the Personal Logo feature please click on the Youtube link.
