A Sport Fan's device. Logitech will release a new electronic gadget that will allow PC users to watch two sport event. If that isn't enough, by adding another device and using the USB ports, the fan can watch four events simultaneously. Additionally the device allows users to record and send video to mobile devices.

Logitech introduces a new device that will allow PC users to watch four TVs simultaneously. Let's say there is a hockey game on ESPN, a basketball game on NBC, a football game on Fox and a horse race on ESPN 2.

The soon to be released Logitech LDT-1S30X4U will allow PC owners to watch two TV channels with its built-in double TV viewer. If you add a second device the sports fan can connect it to 2 USB ports featured in the LDT-1S30X4U and watch all four sports event.

The Logitech device is more than a simple TV display. It has the ability to record previoius video by implementing the Time shift play back function. It can also perform direct video recordings. It also allows users to export captured video to mobile devices with ease. The Logitech suggests that PC owners have at the minimum a Core2 Duo Processor. However a 3GHz Pentium 4 should be able to handle the job.

The triple antenna increases the reception sensitivity dramatically. Logitech provides very specific instructions on attaching the main 15.1 cm antenna via the F connector. The company recommends installation of the cable to the F connector and the TV antenna terminal to the wall be done separately. This will minimize room or environmental interference.

The Logitech LDT-1S30X4U will be available to the West in the near future. It is expected to cost in the range of $152. In the box, you will find the device, an AC adapter, 1 USB cable and a CD ROM instruction guide.
