Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — Keyspan announced it is now shipping “TuneView for iPod,” a powerful remote with color LCD screen and 2-way RF connectivity that provides a new wireless way to manage your iPod®.
“TuneView is unique. It’s unlike any iPod remote that you’ve used before,” explained Keyspan president Mike Ridenhour. “TuneView features a color LCD screen that lets you remotely view the contents of your iPod and control playback — allowing you to manage the iPod as if it were in your hands.”
TuneView for iPod consists of a 2-way RF remote with color LCD screen, a universal iPod dock, a USB power adapter, audio and USB cables, and selected dock inserts. Together these components allow you to:
Connect the iPod to a stereo or powered speakers using the audio line out jack Connect the iPod to a TV using the S-Video jack Charge the iPod from an AC outlet using the USB Power Adapter Browse and control the iPod from around the house with LCD remote
Additionally, the TuneView Dock can be used to sync an iPod with iTunes® running on a PC or Mac, and TuneView supports English, German, French, and Spanish.
“Both the TuneView dock and TuneView remote are USB devices that can be updated via a firmware download, just like an iPod,” noted Ridenhour. “Over time, Keyspan will release firmware updates that will add new capabilities to TuneView.”
Available now in North America, with an MSRP of just $179, TuneView is available from the Keyspan store, Amazon.com, PC Connection, TigerDirect, Buy.com, MicroCenter and other leading computer products resellers.
