9:57 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

ATI today announced the offering of the "Entertain Your Mac" Combo for Apple Macintosh computers. The "Entertain Your Mac" Combo consists of ATI's Radeon 7000 Mac Edition, a mainstream graphics solution for Apple users featuring dual display support, and ATI's Xclaim TV USB Edition, an external TV tuner offering a host of great TV features.

Here's more from the official press release:

"The 'Entertain Your Mac' Combo was designed to provide consumers with a great multimedia experience right on their desktops," said Stan Ossias, Product Manager, Mac Products, Desktop Marketing, ATI Technologies Inc. "This limited time offer will give Mac users the best of both worlds - the ability to view great TV programs and events while enjoying fun computer games and videos."

The RADEON 7000 MAC EDITION is ideally suited to users with older Power Mac systems wishing to increase their display real estate, update their graphics capability or increase their overall system performance. It also enables newer, AGP-based Power Mac owners to add one or more displays to their systems using one of the available PCI slots. The RADEON 7000 MAC EDITION is ideal for mainstream Mac users by delivering solid 3D performance, integrated TV-out and ATI's VIDEO IMMERSION technology for industry-leading DVD playback.

XCLAIM TV USB EDITION is ideal for Mac users to watch TV on Apple desktops or mobile systems through an easy, single cable installation into the computer's USB (Universal Serial Bus) port. Features include: Channel Preview for quick previews of "what's on"; Hot Words to identify key words and phrases in a desired TV program using the closed captioning stream; and parental control to allow parents to lock in or lock out selected channels and monitor or limit their children's exposure to adult programming. XCLAIM TV USB EDITION enables Mac users to easily multitask by watching TV while downloading from the Internet or keeping an eye on a favorite TV show while responding to e-mail messages. XCLAIM TV USB EDITION allows for analog video and audio recording which provides an alternate way for users without digital video cameras to create iMovies.

XCLAIM Video Player, ATI's capture application, includes support for software post-compression using standard QuickTime™ codecs (compressor/decompressor) therefore reducing the space required to store a captured movie.

XCLAIM TV USB EDITION adds TV capabilities to Apple systems that have a USB port, including the iMac™, PowerBook®, iBook™, or G3/G4 Macintosh®. No additional power supply is required. A cable TV signal or amplified antenna is also required. The OS support includes Mac OS 8.6 to 9.1 and QuickTime 4.0 or higher.

The "Entertain Your Mac" Combo begins shipping today to distributors and retailers and will be on shelves next week.
