Digital Vision has launched the first USB flash drive-based digital video recorder (DVR).

The UK company says its GiGo DV-DTR1 Digital TV recorder allows users to record content and then view it on devices such as laptops.

Programmes are recorded in MPEG-2 format direct to any storage device plugged in to one of the DVR’s three front-facing USB ports.

Playback is via the GiGo or via any device that supports MPEG-2 – allowing recorded content to be played on the move.

Digital Vision said the GiGo box will be available from September for GBP £69.99 initially, although this will probably drop to £59.99.

Functionalities include:

  • Record and playback digital TV
  • Copy from one device to another
  • Schedule recordings from the EPG onto three separate devices
