Streaming Networks And NXP Provide Easy Access To Video On-The-Go With iRecord Pro


Record to portable devices from a TV, Set-top-box, DVR and Camcorder
with the touch of a button


Las Vegas, NV and Eindhoven, The Netherlands, April 14, 2008 – Streaming Networks and NXP Semiconductors, the independent semiconductor company founded by Philips, today announced at the National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB 2008), the availability of Streaming Networks iRecord® Pro, an innovative personal media recorder that records video and music content onto portable media players (PMP) such as the Apple iPod®, Sony PSP®, Sony video walkman® and iPhone®. The iRecord Pro builds on the functionality of the first-generation iRecord by adding full D1 video resolution, direct recording to computer hard disk, and the ability to convert existing content to PMP format without a computer.


Powered by NXP’s Nexperia media processing technology, the iRecord hooks up via standard audio/video (AV) connections to any TV, set-top-box (STB), digital video recorder (DVR), camcorder, VCR, DVD player, cassette and LP players or almost any similar audio and video source. With the press of a button, iRecord Pro records AV content directly onto your PMP, USB flash drive, Windows® PC or Macintosh® through a high speed USB connection.


“By leveraging the power of NXP media hardware and Streaming Networks patented software technology, we are able to bring cutting edge professional quality video and audio encoding to mainstream consumers in a small, low cost device,” said Dr. Ayub Khan, CEO and President of Streaming Networks. “Great for technophiles and luddites alike, iRecord Pro is consumer friendliness at its best, offering a choice at how they view their media and delivering the promise of next generation consumer devices and media convergence today.”


While keeping the simplicity of iRecord intact, iRecord Pro now provides encoding of up to full D1 video resolution (720x480) in addition to supporting native resolutions of PMPs which are increasingly going beyond QVGA(320x240). Apple’s iPod classic can play up to VGA (640x480) resolution video. iRecord Pro has an added feature of recording directly to PC, Mac® and laptop hard disks at user selectable resolutions through a USB connection. Furthermore, iRecord Pro users can convert existing content in MPEG-2 video format on their computer to H.264/AVC format for the PMPs without using a PC or Mac.


“Consumers are demanding an easy way to get video out of their living room or computers and onto their portable devices to watch on-the-go” said Christine Swanson, Regional Business Development, Home Business Unit, NXP Semiconductors. “Streaming Networks partnered with NXP to deliver a flexible solution to consumers to quickly and easily encode and record their video content to their portable devices. Consumers can now load content onto their PMPs and laptops without the high cost of purchasing individual AV contents from online media sites or spending hours converting to PMP compatible formats.”


The patented technology, used in iRecord Pro, combines stunning picture quality and small file sizes in a simple-to-use device unmatched by competitors. Consumers can view their favorite AV contents on their PMPs or laptop, enhancing the usability of these devices while simplifying the experience. In addition to video, the iRecord Pro has the ability to record music and audio allowing consumers to digitize old records and capture streaming music without using a computer.


Availability / Demo
iRecord Pro is priced at $259.95 and will become available in Q2 2008 at
www.irecord.com and from leading retailers and catalog merchants. iRecord Pro will be on demonstration at Room #213 on the second floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
