AAP iMac With ?TV Capability?
By Tiernan Ray
Amidst frequent speculation that Apple (AAPL) will produce a full-blown television set at some point, Wedge Partners?s Brian Blair today writes that there is ?a step in between,? namely a revamp of the company?s desktop iMac computer with a ?TV capability.?
Blair, reflecting on the lack of any real evidence Apple is gearing up for TV production, opines that a refresh of the iMac line in the first half of next year could integrate the functions Apple currently offers in its $99 set-top box called ?Apple TV,? producing ?a slimmer all-in-one PC with TV capabilities.?
?Apple could effectively start with what they already have on the manufacturing line,? writes Blair, ?and slowly push their offering from 27 inches and scale up from there to 32 inches and then move on to the 42, 50 and 55 inch market.?
I wonder if the privately held company Elgato could be in Apple’s crosshairs as a nice fit?
Elgato produces award-winning TV software together with a complete range of TV tuners and capture devices to watch, record, and edit TV and HDTV on Macs and PCs. Elgato is the home of EyeTV, the world?s leading television solution for Mac computers. Elgato also produces a variety of world-class H.264 video conversion and streaming products. Elgato is privately held with offices in Munich, Germany and San Francisco, California.
