Hava HDAt CES 2008, Brian Tong takes a first look at a killer streaming-video product called the Hava HD.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Hey what's up guys, I'm Brian Tong, at the CNET stage here at CES 2008. I've got a killer streaming video product from Monsoon Multimedia. It's the Hava HD. Now, they like to call it the Slingbox on steroids and I'll tell you why. It is able to stream 1080i HD video and you can see the 3 antennas up here. It's gonna communicate over your 802.11n wireless network and they've tested out and it's able to reach over or proximately 350 feet. Now, killer feature they have in it is called the Virtual TV Tuner and for example, your laptop or maybe your desktop, they don't come with TV tuner cards. Well, the Hava HD serves as that card and allows you to access it remotely at home or away from work. So, that's some pretty sweet stuff. It also has TiVo like functionality where you can Pause, Fast Forward, Record, record to your hard drive on your computer that you're using or even to a hard drive that's directly connected to the Hava HD. So, it's got some killer features, it's gonna be $299 coming out in March of 2008. There you have it, the Hava HD from Monsoon Multimedia. ^M00:01:04 [ Music ]
