– The Viewer Access Satellite Television service, or VAST, is a satellite television platform in Australia, providing digital television and radio services to remote and black spot areas using the Optus C1 and Optus D3 satellite. It is partly funded by the Australian Government and managed through a joint-venture between Southern Cross Media and Imparja Television. It is a replacement for the Optus Aurora service and provides channels which have been absent on free-to-view satellite until now, such as a Network Ten affiliate, and the digital multichannels.
– Twin Tuner (Tri-Mode Enabled): Can’t decide on which show to record? Now there’s no need to choose between two shows. You can record both at the same time.
– Chasing & Time Shift Playback (2 hours buffering): You get to control time. Play back your show while it’s being recorded, pause it, and resume again when you’re ready. Or watch your favourite scenes again and again, and skip over parts you don’t want.
– Play media files: Access your digital media files from any drive in your home. Because our receiver can access your network, USB drive, or computer in your home, you can watch and listen to all your videos, photos, and music from one place.
– Home Networking: Play back a wide range of audio and video content from compatible devices in your home network.
– HDMI output: Just connect the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable to any HD source and enjoy the optimized pictures and sounds each and every time.
