Kworld Introduces Two New Products for the Growing Number of Television Fans that view their Favorite Shows via the Web

The computer is, for many of us, the center of our lives. I absolutely love my Exorvision monitor with its cable TV input. It allows me to use my computer monitor as a TV so that I can keep up with sporting events or a show that I really want to see live (If I want to time shift, I'll use my Tivo). The point, though, is that being able to watch TV on your computer screen is a huge convenience for lots of us.

However, it's also a huge luxury. Many monitors do not have inputs that allow for a connection from any video device other than a VGA cable. If you have one of those monitors, you really have to jump through some hoops to get TV on that monitor.

Ahem, let me rephrase that to you used to have to jump through hoops. Now Kworld has some devices coming to market that make getting TV on your computer monitor easy. Oh, did I mention that these devices let you watch TV in HD? That's right, a simple way to get an HD signal to your computer monitor or a non-HD television. Here are all the details:

IRVINE, Calif. (November 17, 2009) – KWorld Computer Co. Ltd. (, a manufacturer of digital entertainment technology for consumers, today announced two new products aimed at making TV entertainment more convenient and accessible for all consumers. The External ATSC/QAM TVBox comes in two models, the SA290-Q LE and the SA295-Q DE. Priced at $99 and $109, respectively, both models support “digital free-to-air vestigial TV” as well as unencrypted QAM cable TV. Using these devices, consumers can view their favorite programs in high quality 16:9 aspect ratio in addition to 1080i or 720p video quality. Ideal for students and the growing number of viewers who are now watching their favorite television shows via the Web, these new TVBox products will be in high demand over the Holiday season. Additionally, for those with older analog TVs, rather than disposing of them, consumers can now use the YPbPr 1080i or Composite RCA output on the External ATSC/QAM TVBox to transform their analog TV into an HDTV-ready digital TV. Both models will begin shipping immediately.

Key Features
Both models offer advanced Power Smart energy-saving technology which can automatically power-off the TVBox when it has been idle for more than a user-determined period of time, adjustable from 30-minutes to 4-hours. In addition, for added flexibility, both models support MP3 and JPEG photo and video playback, effectively turning an LCD monitor into a digital photo frame. For total convenience, the SA290-Q LE and the SA295-Q DE both come with a full function infrared remote control for channel flipping and changing box settings, including a one-click PC/TV changeover switch. The SA290-Q LE supports VGA output while deluxe SA295-Q DE model supports VGA, DVI and HDMI output – for total connectivity and compatibility (cables included).
