Pixelworks Powers AirTV’s Recently Launched DVR Features

Pixelworks transcoding technology is powering AirTV’s new Local Channels DVR, which allows users to watch live and recorded local channels in and out of the home, with no subscription required to access recorded local channels or other cloud DVR recordings in the Sling TV app.

Pixelworks’ proprietary transcoding technology preserves the HD picture quality of recordings and optimises the bandwidth needed for wireless streaming to connected display devices, while also reducing the memory capacity required to store DVR content. The Local Channels DVR feature is free to all AirTV users upon updating and restarting Sling TV and can be accessed via an external USB hard drive.
