TV and video in one

A new PCI card from Pinnacle Systems offers users a TV-tuner and a video capture card in one $229 unit.

Studio PCTV, distributed by Lako Vision, lets users tune their PC into broadcast television and also capture video from their camcorder, VCR or the TV-tuner.

The package includes Studio, Pinnacle's video editing software, which provides a drag-and-drop interface for "frame accurate editing" and high-resolution still image capture. Using Studio, video captured can be edited, adding titles, voice-overs and sound effects, and can be outputted as AVI or MPEG-1 files.

Also bundled with the package is RealNetworks' RealProducer, software that enables users to create streaming video.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
