Logitech unveils Revue with Google TV Video Transcript
-So the Logitech Revue with Google TV brings together the very best content from the web, from broadcast, from your apps, from your personal media. It brings all this content together and presents it in one unified interface on the very best screen in your house. Now, I can bring down that search on top of anything, apps, TV, home screen, it doesn't matter. It's universally available and I can just search for whatever it is that I wanna watch, so for example, I happen to like the show Top Gear, I'm gonna search for that. Now, notice, as I type that in, how we see a range of different results, right? These are just the instant results that happen immediately for us. Notice that the first one is from DVR recording so that's what I have on my dish box. The second one is from YouTube, right? So that's online, that's web content. Then I can do a deep search of all-- like an exhaustive search of all the content that's available everywhere online. I have Top Gear here, it looks like it's coming up on BBC at 6 o'clock today so I can record that if I want to. Let's start with the YouTube link. So I'm gonna click on that, Chrome browser pops up, and I'm instantly taken to YouTube, right? I'm now watching this video. I have the full power of the web at my disposal on my TV, right? I can watch it in HD, I can watch it in full screen. This time, let's choose the DVR recordings. I'm instantly taken to my DVR recordings. There they are. So I'm gonna press the dual view mode button and you can see that my DVR or my live content is now in the bottom right and what I have behind that is the browser, so if I search again for Top Gear, now look on the results, and let's go to the site so I can find out some more information, and there you have it. We're watching TV and we're finding out more information about the show. Now, of course, Revue comes preloaded with a lot of apps, a lot of great apps that can pull in all kinds of great content for us. So let's take a look at some of these so we have CNBC. We have the gallery so we can have pictures not only in our phones, in our PCs, but we can have those shared with our TV as well where they're best viewed. We have Chrome, of course, where we can go to any site online. We have the Help Assistant in case we need a little assistance. We have the media player and Vid and we're gonna show you both of these in just a second. We have Napster, Nba Game Time, Netflix, Pandora, Amazon, right, and the list goes on. -So, now, with Logitech TV cam that we're introducing today, in Logitech Revue and Logitech Vid HD on Google TV, we're able to bring a more comfortable video calling experience to your living room. Let me show you what the experience looks like. -We have a medium picture quality, you can zoom, I'll show you the home. It's clear, it's crisp, and the technology couldn't be better, so that's what I'm hoping. -And you can see, I can zoom in past this relief and you can show them how-- go through the entire room or get back to our host screen and we also could display our own. It's fantastic so you can call most of the rooms.
