The TViX HD 4130 can play back H.264 and high definition video (1920 x 1080p), DVD, digital images, and music files from either the internal Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or across the home of office network. The device also enables a user to schedule and read HD TV files which the user can playback anytime.

CEO of Lako Pacific, Evan Kourambas said, "Dvico have set themselves as global leaders by future-proofing its TViX range with the latest consumer technologies such as H.264 support, HD playback and HDMI output. It is difficult to categorise what the TViX 4130 really is, given its capabilities extend further than just being a PVR or hard disk multimedia player."

The TViX 4130's support for H.264 compressed digital videos allows a user to view Internet videos and movie trailers, digital TV broadcast, IPTV transmission, and even HD movies on the unit. The recorder allows users to watch and record free-to-air broadcast SD & HD digital TV with scheduled recording. Support for the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) allows a user to record scheduled programs without manually programming the times and channels. The EPG can also be used to automatically switch over to pre-selected programs at the time of airing, the company says.

The TViX also comes with a built-in LAN port, for direct networking and file streaming without any HDD on the unit, as well as a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) function that allows a user to have access to their files and folders via the Internet.

The Dvico TViX 4130 also features the following:

  • Digital Jukebox for Movie/Music/Image/DVD Backup files 
  • SATA, I, II, HDD, to output HDMI 
  • USB host port to connect digital camera/flash drive/external HDD 
  • Play MP3, WAV, AAC, and Ogg music files
