iPad and iPhone DTT hotspot
The German firm Equinux has announced the introduction of tizi, which it calls “Europe’s first mobile TV Hotspot for iPad and iPhone”. The tizi device delivers DVB-T channels directly to the iPad or iPhone over WiFi.
An integrated Hotspot allows tizi to deliver the TV signal to iPad and iPhone using tizi’s pre-configured WiFi network. Battery life is good for 3.5 hours of watching TV. The replaceable Li-Ion battery can be recharged via a free USB port on a Laptop or using an iPad power adapter. During use, an LED status light displays the current battery level.
Tizi supports the unencrpyted European free-to-air TV standard (DVB-T/DTT/TNT) and is only available in European countries. HD services such as Freeview HD (UK) and DVB-T2 are not yet supported.
