Plextor's ConvertX PVR Mac to Use Elgato's EyeTV Software Enhanced With DivX Capture


Plextor announced the availability of real-time hardware-based DivX video encoding on the ConvertX PVR for the Macintosh with Elgato's EyeTV 1.8.1 software.

Previously available to ConvertX PVR PC users only, hardware-based DivX video encoding is now available to Macintosh users using EyeTV 1.7.2 software. EyeTV 1.8.1 is a free comprehensive update for current ConvertX PVR for the Mac owners, and is available for download from www.elgato.com. ConvertX PVR for the Macintosh hardware has always supported DivX capture, and now the EyeTV software upgrade makes this feature accessible to Macintosh users.

"Plextor's ConvertX PVR was the first high quality, low cost USB 2.0 solution for the Mac market when it was introduced in November of 2004," said Dirk Peters, director of marketing, Plextor. "Now we have made the product even more feature-rich by adding real-time DivX capture support through the award winning EyeTV Software package from Elgato."

"DivX video technology on the ConvertX PVR opens up new opportunities for Macintosh users by letting them record even more TV shows and movies on their Macs using DivX's high quality and low file size compression technology," said Bill Holmes, Vice President of Consumer Electronics at DivX, Inc. "Not only can users store more on their hard disk, but they can also fit more video on a CD or DVD and play back their videos on small handheld devices such as personal digital assistants, personal video players, or mobile phones."

Patent-pending DivX video technology offers DVD-quality at three times greater compression than MPEG-2 files, enabling full length films to easily fit on a CD or be delivered over broadband connections. With the Plextor ConvertX PVR and Elgato EyeTV software, users can also edit DivX files and timeshift in the DivX format. In 2004, DivXNetworks certified ConvertX PVRs. Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous quality and compatibility testing program to ensure interoperability, security, and visual quality. In addition to DivX technology, the ConvertX PVR for the Macintosh also supports hardware-based MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 video capture and compression.

Recommended System

MAC OS X Compatible Mac CPU; MAC OS X 10.1.5 or above operating system; 20 MB free space for software installation; QuickTime 6; USB connection. Roxio Toast 6 Titanium is recommended for CD or DVD creation.

Pricing and Availability

Plextor's ConvertX Personal Video Recorder for Mac is shipping immediately with Elgato EyeTV 1.8.1 software. ConvertX PVR for Mac has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $229.00 USD. EyeTV 1.8.1 is a free update for current ConvertX PVR for the Mac owners, and is available for download from www.elgato.com.
