TechniSat IFA Receiver Highlights 2012


From 31st August to 5th September 2012, the TechniSat Digital GmbH presents its product innovations at the IFA in Berlin. TechniSat introduces a new software standard for the ISIO receivers and a new receiver for the French market to a wide audience consisting of media, economics, politics, professionals and end-consumers.

With the free updating service TechniMatic from TechniSat the software on your ISIO receiver is always up to date. As soon as enhancements or improvements to the operating software are available, the set carries out an automatic software update at the appropriate time (adjustable in the menu of the TV). This ensures a high level of future-security and a wider and improved range of functions.

At the IFA in Berlin TechniSat presents a new software standard with new features and services for the digital receivers DIGIT ISIO S and TechniCorder ISIO S:

The MyTechniSat App combines functions of a remote control with the access to the Electronic Program Guide (EPG), the timer organiser and a service for retrieving stored videos, music and pictures on the TechniSat device. Besides the classic remote control surface, MyTechniSat App offers also an optimized interface for smart phone that can be controlled intuitively by the typical swipe using a control pad and only three function keys. A touchpad simplifies the use of the integrated web browser through the direct control of the cursor, a scroll and zoom function. Texts - such as Internet addresses - can be entered via the integrated keypad.

Folder structure
Future recordings can be sorted into a folder structure. In addition, recordings can be stored directly in folders. Both improve manageability and the archiving of data on the hard disk.

HTML 5 makes YouTube Leanback available on all ISIO receivers
The free software update for all ISIO receivers supports the video format HTML 5. With the new software, ISIO receivers permit the access to YouTube Leanback. YouTube Leanback is the TV-optimized version of the popular video portal, which brings millions of videos directly on the TV screen.

Late descrambling via CI
This function is able to decrypt recorded Pay-TV programmes afterwards. In case of the usage of one CI-module including a respective Smartcard the function enables you to record two encrypted programmes simultaneously. One programme will be recorded encrypted and the other one can be watched and recorded unencrypted at the same time. The descrambling process of the encrypted recording will be done at a later time.

UPnP renderer
With the UPnP renderer your ISIO receiver becomes a player for music, pictures and videos in your home network.

TechniBox HD VA 2
With the TechniBox HD VA 2, TechniSat will offer a new HDTV-capable DVS-S receiver for the French market. As a powerful, convenient digital receiver the TechniBox HD VA 2 can receive the complete TNT programming via DVB-S. This feature makes the receiver particularly attractive for the regions in France where terrestrial broadcast signals are not yet transmitted. Furthermore, the TechniBox HD VA 2 is Canal-ready, i.e., the digital satellite receiver is suitable for the reception of the most encrypted French programs. Since the TechniBox HD VA 2 is DVR ready as well, the digital receiver can record digital TV as well as radio on an external USB hard drive disk – and can play the recordings back at any time.
