HD England World Cup Football at Tesco.com HQ - R&D style!
Today R&D is hosting the crucial England vs Slovenia World Cup game in the atrium on a 65" (165cm diagonal) HDTV. This TV is fed by an Apple Mac connected via DVI cable and using the Mac's excellent graphics card to decompress and render a full HD 1080i high definition signal from the BBC HD channel received from satellite by an Elgato EyeTV Sat receiver. Oh yes!
Premium components end-to-end mean the picture quality is absolutely breathtaking so everyone is looking forward to.. er... working hard on their laptops in the atrium using wifi for network connections as they... er... glance at the TV from time to time...
Tesco.com is a great place to work!
