It's an industry milestone worthy of a PVR replay, as Scientific-Atlanta announces its inaugural shipment of its new Explorer® 8000 home entertainment servers, the world's first complete personal entertainment platform for cable, for customer trials. The first-of-its-kind entertainment device will debut in subscriber homes this week, where trial participants will be the first to experience the power of personal video recording delivered through Scientific-Atlanta's Explorer 8000 home entertainment server and digital interactive network.

The Explorer 8000 home entertainment server is designed with consumers in mind, offering exciting new, next generation personal TV services. Consumers will be able to pause live TV, record one channel while watching another, record two channels and play back another simultaneously, and enjoy picture-in-picture (PIP) on any consumer television set.

The PVR aboard the Explorer 8000 home entertainment server will be powered by an 80-gigabyte hard drive and will be capable of recording up to 50 hours of programming without the need for a phone line. With future added home networking capabilities, the Explorer 8000 platform will be capable of sharing a wide range of entertainment related content throughout the home such as video, music and digital images.
