Humax HDCI2000 for free-to-air and MPEG-4

Kevin C. Tofel

Humax is joining the ranks of DISH, DIRECTV, TiVo 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.
