Freeview on the move

Business security measures using SSL

TV tuner specialist Elgato has released an own-brand version of the Tizi Wi-Fi-linked Freeview receiver for iOS devices.

Elgato Tivizen

Elgato calls its box the Tivizen, but it seems identical to rival tuner firm Equinux's Tizi - reviewed here.

The battery powered tuner picks up digital Freeview channels and relays them to nearby iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches through a built-in hotspot. The app they need to run is free and available now from iTunes. You can also use the tuner with computers - Mac and Windows software comes in the box.

The battery gives up to three-and-a-half hours' viewing, Elgato claimed, and can be charged up by USB.

Tivizen is available immediately at a price of £150. ®
