HDTV stands for High Definition Television, thus for outstanding picture quality. With HDTV, pictures can be displayed in much greater detail and with much finer gradations. Contrast and contours are more precise and colours truer to their originals. Furthermore, the wide screen format on HDTV broadcasts corresponds much better to human visual perception. So it creates a more vivid impression overall.
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.
TechniFamily can be used to set up password-protected user profiles. Customised access options and restrictions can be defined for each profile, e.g. for selected channels, daily television viewing times and a maximum duration of use. In this way parents can adjust viewing behaviour as appropriate for the child.
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.
Electronic programme information service
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.
Pay TV ready
This TV also enables you to receive encrypted channel content requiring payment (Pay TV). To receive Pay TV, you need a subscription to the relevant Pay TV provider.
"SiehFern INFO" (SFI)
This free 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, can be adapted to suit individual requirements and is available at any time. The SiehFern INFO can also be used easily to activate each timer - requiring just a push of a button on the remote control.
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.
Interactive additional services and additional information about the current channel via internet
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.)
The free TechniSat channel list manager does away with tedious manual channel scanning. On switching the TV off, a scan is automatically run and then compared with the channel lists. If there are changes to channel allocations a message saying that the channel list has been updated is displayed (next time the TV is switched on). Customised lists are retained and amended accordingly.
