Message Text: Pioneer Electronics (USA) is presenting the set-top box that has generated widespread enthusiasm in the cable TV industry, the Voyager 4000 HD-DVR. The company's dual-tuner high definition digital video recorder set- top box will be featured in Pioneer's booth #138 at this week's National Show at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago.

Pioneer's Voyager 4000 HD-DVR builds on its long history of cable product innovations. Featuring a dual HD tuner configuration (860 MHz), the Voyager 4000 HD-DVR allows for watch-and-archive and picture-in-picture capabilities. A robust hard-disk drive is incorporated to allow for full non-linear control -- a capability that combines the immediacy of live TV with computer-like storage and accessibility, with the time shift control of DVD. Cable customers will be able to pause live programming and manage their video programming without missing a beat. Pioneer's newly released interactive navigation suite, Passport(TM) Echo, is fully optimized to run on Voyager 4000, enabling cable customers to cache, catalog and store programming for later retrieval.

* Watch and Archive: an HD dual tuner allows for both high-definition and standard television signals to be encoded onto the hard disk drive simultaneously, so viewers can watch and archive two programs at once.

* Picture-in-Picture: Video in corner screen keeps viewers continuously connected to programming, allowing them to view two programs simultaneously. DVR features can be applied to both video windows.

* Video Up and Down Conversion: Cable customer configurable controls enable the Voyager 4000 HD-DVR to output screen resolutions optimized for any display type from standard definition to high definition in a variety of formats. Incoming video resolutions are detected and up- converted or down-converted automatically based on the configured output.

* Content Security: The Voyager 4000 HD-DVR comes equipped with Macrovision, DVI (HDCP 1.0), and IEEE-1394 with 5C.

* Expanded Connectivity: In addition to DVI and IEEE-1394, the Voyager 4000 HD-DVR comes equipped with a host of useful connections including component, baseband, SPDIF, USB, and S-Video.

* Advanced dual processing power: This provides optimum display of high- resolution graphics simultaneously with HD video using a pallet of 65,000 colors.

* Supports leading audio standards: The set-top box provides CD quality, digital sound including Dolby(R) AC3(R). Analog to digital conversion provides for optimum enjoyment of home theater systems' Hi-Fi digital capabilities.
