LAS VEGAS, NV–January 5, 2005–From the floor of the 2005 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Decisionmark Corp. unveiled its TitanTV Big Screen for Media Center PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 brings the TitanTV listings into the living room–helping consumers choose from their digital TV options as they are sitting down to watch TV. The TitanTV Big Screen is accessible to Media Center users in the Online Spotlight section where Microsoft showcases third-party services. Consumers can sign up for
TitanTV’s free program listings guide using their remote control and enjoy features such as customization and convenient TV recording.
