HD PVR 2 model 1512: your personal high definition video recorder!
HD PVR 2 comes with Hauppauge Capture. Record video at up to 1080p from a DVR or satellite or cable TV set top box or a video game console. HD PVR 2 can record from either HDMI (without HDCP protection), Component video (red/green/blue connectors on the back of your cable/satellite box) or composite video (the yellow connector on the back of your cable/satellite box).
You can record TV programs from a DVR and free up space on the DVR for more recordings. Create a library of your favorite TV programs.
Or use the included WinTV v10 application to schedule TV recordings directly from a cable TV or satellite set top box.
Amazing HD audio and video quality
HD PVR 2 contains a studio quality video encoder, and records at resolutions up to 1080P30.
The H.264 format is used by Blu-ray discs and exceeds other video compression standards in quality and disk space consumption, providing a crisp image and amazing digital sound. H.264 uses 1/3 the disk space compared with the popular MPEG-2 format.
And with HD PVR 2 model 1512’s S/PDIF optical audio input, your audio will be as amazing as the video. If you have 5.1 channel AC3 audio from HDMI or optical S/PDIF, your recordings will have 5.1 channel AC-3 audio!
Make your own HD movie library from cable or satellite TV
Offload your cable or satellite DVR box with the HD PVR 2 model 1512 in full HD. Create a library of your favorite high definition TV programs.
The HD PVR 2 model 1512 supports both HDMI and Component video. For best results, your cable or satellite TV box should have Component video out since sometimes (but not always), the boxes put HDCP copy protection on the HDMI cable. But component video is never copy protected.
Record and stream gameplay in HD
Record your best gaming moves without slowing down your PC. The video compression is done inside HD PVR 2 so you can record your PC game play in HD without slowing down your PC. You can also record Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Wii U game play. And HD PVR 2’s HD video passthrough means you can record and watch your game play at the same time, with no delay! HD PVR 2 captures videos in a format which is perfect for uploading to YouTube.
Personal Logo application
The HD PVR 2 and Colossus 2 Logo Inserter puts a graphic in your recordings or video streams. It does this automatically, branding your videos and streams with your logo. In the TV industry, an on-screen logo is called a 'digital onscreen graphic' or 'TV bug', and you can often see this in the lower right hand corner of news programs on TV. The Hauppauge Personal Logo application uses the Logo Inserter, and is part of the Hauppauge Capture application (it can be found in the Settings tab). There is also a standalone version which is installed with the HD PVR 2 Installation package.
