equinux presents tizi, the first mobile TV Hotspot for iPad and iPhone
Munich, Germany / San Francisco, USA − October 29, 2010: tizi has arrived! Europe's first and only mobile TV Hotspot for DVB-T that brings your favourite shows directly to iPad or iPhone.
On first glance, you can see tizi's quality: its black, glossy design is influenced only by the iPad and iPhone's own styling. The extendable antenna is 15cm long and receives the TV signal with a flexibility that allows you to do pretty much anything with it. The handheld device weighs only 70g and has a practical shape. The latest in chip technology gives a crystal-clear picture on the touchscreen. All that, without a cable or an adaptor.
To display the picture tizi uses an integrated Hotspot that works right out-of-the-box and also guarantees a stabile picture even in some of the poorer signal areas. It's as simple as turning tizi on, choosing tizi's WiFi network and starting the app.
Don't stop watching: the high-performance Lithium-Ion battery shows even your favorite blockbusters. After 3.5 hours the Li-Ion battery can be recharged using a USB port on your laptop or even with your iPad's power adaptor. While running, tizi lets you know the current battery status using the front LED status light. Of course, red, orange and green. tizi doesn't do anything by halves when it comes to user friendliness. You get an overview of all available channels and, using the built-in programme guide, a shot at upcoming shows. Swiping lets you comfortably change channels - without any lengthy delay.
The included tizi.tv App requires iOS 4 on the iPhone (3GS and 4), iPod touch (4. Gen., 3. Gen, 32 GB) and iOS 3.2 on the iPad. tizi supports portrait and landscape mode on the iPhone and iPad and offers full multitasking abilities under iOS 4. tizi is ready for the upcoming iOS 4 on iPad.
tizi doesn't only extend the iPad and iPhone's ability to watch TV, it also extends equinux's product range in to a new area: next to Mail, Media, Lifestyle and Enterprise, you can expect to soon see many more accessories coming from equinux.
