"The OSD ("open source device") was developed primarily as the next-generation platform to replace Neuros's petite DVR set-top box, the Recorder II. It can record MPEG-4 video from analog sources such as cable or broadcast TV receivers, DVD players, and so on, and then transfer it to various sorts of memory cards or directly to portable media players such as Neuros's own 442, Apple's video iPod, or any number of Linux-based A/V devices.

The OSD can also be used in a network music player, and Neuros may offer a special remote to support this use case, Born said.

The OSD is based on a TI DM320 SoC (system-on-chip processor). The SoC has an ARM926EJ core clocked at 200MHz, along with a C54x DSP core operating at 120MHz. It also has dedicated MPEG-4 video encoding/decoding hardware that Neuros says enables the OSD to support "DVD-like" playback quality at D1 (DVD) resolutions."
