Founded in 1992, Hauppage Computer Works is a global leader in developing, manufacturing and marketing electronic video hardware for PCs. The name was derived from the hamlet of Hauppage, New York, the same city in which it is based.
Best known for its successful line of PC-based TV tuner cards, Hauppage also produces digital video editors, digital video recorders, digital media players and hybrid video recorders. The company also has a product range of digital television products that support both Windows and Macintosh computers. Though headquartered in New York, Hauppage has sales and technical support offices located in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and The Netherlands.
During the early 1990s, Hauppauge mainly developed motherboards for Intel 486 processors. While most of these motherboards were designed for standard IBM-compatible PCs, others were workstation and server-based, offering support for FISA, optional cache memory modules and the Weitek 4167 FPU. One of its most popular motherboards was the Hauppauge 4860, the only standard PC/AT motherboard with an Intel 80486 processor and the option to run an Intel i860 processor. Shortly thereafter, the company stopped producing motherboards to focus on the TV card market.
The company achieved worldwide notoriety with its Hauppauge WinTV product line. This family of PC analog and digital TV tuners gives users the ability to watch television from their computer in a window or full screen. Some of the features of WinTV models include FM radio, IR remote control and fast, high-performance recording. The Hauppauge WinTV offers benefits to both home and business users. Professionals use it to keep track of late breaking news while home users enjoy the luxury of being able to watch TV while checking their email or surfing the web.
Over the years, Hauppage has been committed to strengthening its presence by introducing more cutting edge products and establishing itself in more regions. Those goals appear to be within easy reach as the company now has sales offices in Turkey and more products that support the Linux operating system.
