Monsoon Hava Gold HD

Monsoon built out its range of networked media hubs on Tuesday by announcing the Hava Gold HD. The newer HD-capable version that can automatically convert the output of most any video source, including 1080i and 720p widescreen signals from HD sources, to a portable format for a home network or the Internet. Any connected PCs serve as PVRs for streaming video with timeshifting and scheduled recording; Windows Media Center will even recognize the Hava Gold HD as a TV tuner card, Monsoon says. Though Internet viewers must watch through MPEG-4, any computers on the network can watch content at DVD-quality MPEG-2. Pass-through jacks also ensure that the Hava doesn't obstruct the remaining outputs on a cable box, TiVo, or other source. Monsoon ships the Gold HD edition now for $130, and says it has dropped the price to $100 until the end of January.
