Akai’s one stop HD box
The AD173X High Definition Set Top Box with built-in up-scaling DVD Player and Personal Video Recorder offers consumers the ability to watch full high definition TV, DVD’s and record digital TV straight to a USB storage device conveniently in the one unit.
The full high definition TV tuner converts an existing TV to digital, enabling viewing of more TV channels plus also providing a clearer, sharper picture, and improved sound quality.
Featuring a built-in 1080P up-scaling DVD player the AD173X enhances the resolution of normal DVD’s to a maximum of 1080P, thus viewers can be confident they are always watching movies at the highest quality and resolution that is possible on their existing TV.
Consumers can also record TV shows directly to a USB storage device using the PVR (Personal Video Recorder) function. The PVR allows the scheduling of a show to be recorded using the seven day Electronic Program Guide (EPG), which displays the details of current and upcoming programs for the week.
The AD173X also features time shift capabilities enabling users to pause, rewind and fast forward live TV.
The parental lock function offers peace of mind to parents that are concerned about their children viewing unsuitable content, by offering the ability to restrict access to TV programs and DVD’s based on their classifications.
