Tivo, Intel work on digital home initiatives

MUMBAI: Tivo which creates television services for digital video recorders has announced that it is working with Intel to develop functionality in a TiVo application.

This will enable it to work with Intel Viiv technology to pave the way for a dramatic change in the way entertainment is consumed at home or on the go.

This new application will further extend Tivo's TivoToGo features. It will allow existing Tivo subscribers to securely transfer their favorite television programmes from their Tivo Series2 DVR to an Intel Viiv technology based PC using only the remote control.

The application will also allow any content downloaded from a Tivo DVR to an Intel Viiv technology enabled device to be securely played back on certain compliant media adapters, which will be supported in a future planned release of the application. This application will be available in the first half of next year.

Tivo CEO Tom Rogers says, "Combining Intel's breakthrough technology with Tivo's user experience will give consumers more of the control they are looking for. When it comes to digital entertainment in the living room and beyond, consumers deserve the ease of use they've come to expect from Tivo. We're thrilled to be working on this important initiative with Intel."

Intel Digital Home Group senior VP and GM content services group Kevin Corbett says, "We are excited to be working with TiVo on the application for the Intel Viiv technology platform. Together with companies like Tivo, Intel is working to bring powerful new connected entertainment experiences to the home where consumers can more easily personalise, manage and enjoy their entertainment experience with Intel Viiv technology."
