Hauppauge Broadway 2T transmits wireless TV to Mac, iPhone, iPad anywhere

“The trend toward ubiquitous global mobile media consumption without traditional boundaries and the convergence of internet and TV accelerated today with the release of the GBP229 (US$367) Hauppauge PCTV Broadway 2T which will stream TV to any iOS device (iPad or iPhone), Mac or PC with no third party app required,” Gizmag reports.

“The Broadway 2T is standalone (no computer needed), connects to your wired or wifi network and contains dual DVB-T tuners to enable streaming of a TV signal to a host device either over a home network or the internet, and hence to anywhere in the world,” Gizmag reports. “The 2T also has USB and video inputs so you can stream video from a USB device or set top box not to mention connecting an analog camera to create a remote home surveillance solution system viewable on an iPad or iPhone.”

Gizmag reports, “The Broadway 2T utilises 802.11n wireless and its sophisticated MPEG-4 H.264 hardware compression codec ensure minimal demand on mobile device battery life.”

  1. Damn! This is some European tuner crap, right? When are they going to come out with something like that for North American digital signal standards? I think this might be something I could really use. It does have A/V inputs so I could use another source if necessary. It’s a bit expensive, but I’d pay even more if it had onboard recording and storage capabilities. Now I’d still need to hook it up to some PVR device and I’m not sure whether this box would be able to control it.

    1. There’s the Slingbox and EyeTV devices you could consider. Both stream to iPods, iPads and iPhones. I think the EyeTV app is $5 and the Sling one is $29. I have the Slingbox and it works fine. I have an EyeTV as well, which works as a PVR, but it requires transcoding before streaming, which means you need a quick Mac. Anyway, there are choices.
