Humax launches HD receiver


by

Humax have unveiled a satellite receiver for both FTA and subscription HD channels.

At the moment there are only a few free ‘test’ channels, but by the summer there exists the possibility of watching the World Cup in HD broadcast by the BBC and other providers!

It has long been rumoured that many broadcasters will use the World Cup to showcase the new technology. Some subscription services have already confirmed their intentions.

According to Humax the HDCI2000, which will retail for £300 when it debuts in March can receive and decrypt the latest MPEG4 HD transmissions, as well as display both MPEG2 HD and standard definition, free-to-air satellite signals.

Specification: Optical output for Dolby Digital sound; two scarts to connect additional home cinema devices; a data port for software updates and a HDMI video output. There are also two common interface slots, allowing future expansion into Pay TV services when they become available.

The receiver will NOT be suitable for receiving the new upcoming Sky HD transmissions in the UK.
