“In addition to transforming a computer screen into a high-resolution TV set, SmartTV on Screen features audio and video inputs which can be used to connect a wide variety of devices – including video game consoles or a DVD player – for brilliant full screen viewing,” states Fran├žois Garet, Hercules Audio/Video Group Manager. “The unit is pocket-sized with an attractive silver case which complements any environment, and provides 1024x768 resolution for crystal-clear image quality on all monitor types.”

SmartTV on Screen is a revolution in PC, TV and video compatibility, designed with the following points in mind:

  • Visual appeal: the unit blends in perfectly with any room in the house
  • Ease of use: SmartTV on Screen is as simple to operate as any piece of home audio/video equipment
  • Practicality: SmartTV on Screen converts a computer monitor into a second TV set.

SmartTV on Screen is the latest addition to Hercules’ popular line of products, including the SmartTV and SmartTV Stereo PCI cards, providing a comprehensive range of innovative solutions to meet the needs of all PC owners.

Smart TV on Screen will be released at the end of February 2003 in 2 different versions:
