Imagine being able to surf the web and watch TV at the same time. Or being able to send personal videos to family and friends directly from your Mac. With ProTV you can do all of this - and more! It's easy. To watch your favorite program, just connect via antenna or cable and choose from up to 125 TV channels. For your convenience, ProTV also includes Teletext. Additionally, you can easily connect to your VCR or Camcorder and play or record video in S-VHS and BNC formats. And with ProTV, you can capture stills and record full motion video as QuickTime movies that play on your Mac up to 30 frames per second. Pretty soon you'll be saying "I want my ProTV!"
