Broadway - Watch Live TV on your ipad, at home or around the World. Broadway allows users to stream Live TV to the ipad, iphone4, Android, PC or Mac computers. This small stand alone device also sends the TV signal over your home wifi network. It can be placed anywhere in the home since it communicates hardwire or wirelessly with your home network. Broadway has a built in HD TV Tuner and hardware H.264 video encoder, which ensures the highest quality video being sent to your ipad, iphone or mobile device. And, Broadway will also stream to your Mac or PC. Whether you are at home or on the road, streaming Live TV is now easier than ever.
Compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac.
Broadway connects between your TV source and your home Wi-Fi network. Broadway takes your TV signal, converts it to format which can be displayed on your mobile device (the Apple iPad and iPhone use one format type, while Android, PCs and Macs use another), and then sends the converted TV signal to your home router. Your home router then transmits the live TV signal to your mobile device via Wi-Fi or the Internet.
Broadway contains a versatile TV tuner with support for cable and satellite set top boxes, ATSC over-the-air TV signals and unencrypted digital cable TV (clear QAM). If you use a cable TV or satellite set top box to watch TV at home, Broadway connects to the audio and video signals on the set top box. Then from your Apple device no matter where you are in the world, you'll have full control of the TV channel selected on the set top box via Broadway's "IR-blaster" technology.
Broadway has a built-in high quality H.264 HD video encoder, which turns your TV signal into a form which can be played on the Apple iPhone or iPad, or into a form which can be played on other devices such as Android or a PC or Mac.
Broadway is "always on" with extremely low power consumption. Connect Broadway to your TV source, put it in a corner and Broadway will always be ready to send your favorite TV programs to your mobile device, anywhere in the world!
Broadway can also stream live TV to a PC or Mac
All that's required to watch live TV on your Mac is Safari. Broadway converts the live TV signal to a form which can be watched in Safari.
