ATI Theater 550: “PVR on a chip”

Posted on 15 September 2004 by

ATI is releasing a PVR on a chip dubbed the ATI Theater 550.

The Register coverage ATI syncs audio, video with Theater 550 chip

PVR blog: ATI Theater 550: PVR-on-a-chip

via HTPCnews there’s a link to a very indepth look at what all that PR gibberish means from hexus.net

The long and short of it: hopefully we’ll see more devices with TV/PVR components and more importantly FINALLY get an ATI AIW (or other regular video cards) with hardware based encoding and PVR-esque functionality built in! (hypothetically)
