Tizi – Mobile TV just got more mobile


Equinux, developer of iPad, iPhone and Mac solutions, announces a new update for its mobile TV device, the tizi. The new 1.3 enables users to find local TV stations up to four times faster than before. It can now also store multiple channel lists, which can be accessed from various devices, eliminating the need for re-tuning. Additionally, a new in car mode automatically turns the tizi on as soon as it is connected to a USB source. The 1.3 update is available now for free download from the App Store. 1.3 is able to find stations four times faster through geo-matching to pin point a user’s location. By storing multiple channel lists directly on the tizi, users only need to tune the device once per location, so they can re-visit an area without having to re-tune their tizi. The stored channel lists can be accessed by various devices, whether connecting to an iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac. Tizi.1.3 has been optimised for the iPad 2 to provide users with a better image quality. Additionally iPad 2 users can take advantage of the new VGA/HDMI-Adaptor to connect their devices  to projectors, monitors or TV sets turning any screen they come across into a digital television (DTT).

Following feedback from tizi users, equinux has made several changes to the device with a new firmware 3.0 update. The tizi now has an auto-stop recording function, meaning it will stop recording as soon as a TV show is over. A new sleep function will automatically turn tizi off at the end of the current TV show or after a specified amount of time. Additionally, the user interface has been refined, the volume control is now available on-screen, Superzoom in portrait mode will automatically change and stronger password protection has been added.

The 1.3 and firmware 3.0 updates are available now from the App Store for free. tizi users can also download the Mac software, The Tube, from the website for free. tizi is available for £149.95 through Apple Resellers and at
