Humax is joining the ranks of DISH
and others in the MPEG-4 space
with the announcement of their HDCI2000 high-def free-to-air
satellite receivers in the UK. You won't get the new SkyHD programming on the HDCI2000, but it will provide access to
the UK version of our ATSC digital TV signals or OTA
. The new Humax box
will support both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 streams and is equipped with optical output, HDMI and dual SCARTs. Watch for the
HDCI2000 to hit the street around 299 pounds next month, which is in plenty of time for the World Cup coverage.
