Full HD means that an HDTV is able to show the highest HD resolution, (currently) 1920 x 1080 pixels. This corresponds to a picture containing over 2 million pixels. The high quality screens used by TechniSat display this resolution perfectly, so that, with this resolution capability, an exceptionally detailed and clear picture is achieved with spatial definition.
"SiehFern INFO Plus" (SFI+)
This extended electronic programme information service (ePID) allows TechniSat to offer a free current and comprehensive overview of a large number of channels. The programme preview extends up to seven days and has been extended to include a search function, a sorting function for genres and (with satellite reception) picture material on selected programmes. The timers can be activated quickly and easily via SiehFern INFO Plus.
ISIO internet technology
Fitted with comprehensive IP functionalities, this unit permits access to interactive services, media libraries, free browsing on the Internet, calling-up "Video-on-demand" services and use of HbbTV applications. (HbbTV is a technology that allows access to channel-related Internet content while watching TV.)
watchmi thematic channels
watchmi topic channels allow you to watch internet based video data from different categories as education, technology, sports, cars, lifestyle or travelling, around the clock. Just as a usual TV channel, topic channels will automatically appear in the channel list. Thus the internet and television finally melt to a new interactive medium.
Interactive additional services and additional information about the current channel via internet
The free TechniSat channel list manager does away with tedious manual channel scanning. When channels change frequency or switch on/off, this service provides an automatic way of updating the list of channels available. This process runs if you have agreed to updating. Customised lists are retained and amended where necessary.
This free updating service from TechniSat keeps the software on your device 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 on the TV). This ensures a high level of future-security and a wider and improved range of functions.
When using the TV for the first time you must create a few important settings (specifically adaptation to local conditions). Clear instructions from the installation wizard provided by TechniSat guide you through easy-to-understand dialogues, enabling you to carry out the required configuration easily and rapidly. Your TV will therefore be ready for use in a short time.
Universal Plug And Play (UPnP)
This TV can be easily integrated into a home network via the integrated Ethernet interface (with optional additional WLAN adapter), enabling various multi-media devices such as a PC, TV, hi-fi, digital cameras and much more to be interconnected by UPnP/DLNA.
HTML5-based video-on-demand services such as YouTube can be used on ISIO devices thanks to integrated HTML5 support. As HTML5 video is the standard for integrating video on websites, there will be many additional HTML5 offerings available on ISIO receivers in the future.
Recorded programmes can be edited later via handy cutting and editing tools (e.g. to remove advertising slots).
This receiver is compatible with all TechniRouter products. It supports SCR technology with the extended DiSEqC protocol as per European standard EN 50494. SCR (Satellite Channel Routing) is a technology that is used to transmit multiple satellite channels to a specified receiver at a unique frequency in a single cable system.
