Integration of TV into the desktop

The Electric Media multimedia PC, is one of a new wave of PCs which can integrate TV onto the desktop. It is a 486sx25 with a fairly standard configuration with an important addition a WIN/TV card and aerial. This allows it to receive transmissions and present them live inside a window in Windows. The card is actually a TV receiver in miniature and a genlock at the same time (which synchronises the scan rate of the monitor with the TV image). A crucial element is the installed software which allows the TV picture to be used as the input. The moving image from the television window can then be captured and used in different multimedia applications.
