Griffin demos iPod add-ons
Griffin Technology is demonstrating three products for iPod which include the iTalkPro, iKaraoke, and TuneCenter at Apple Expo in Paris, France. Griffin's iTalk Pro is a recording device for iPod featuring a dock connector, offering two built-in microphones that sample stereo soound at 44.1KHz in 16-bit stereo or 8-bit mono, according to Macworld UK. A stereo 3.5mm input jack allows users to connect yet another microphone to the device. iKaraoke is designed to transform an iPod into a portable karaoke machine with a microphone for singers and a switch to fade a track's existing vocals into the background without adjusting instruments and backing vocals. The iKaraoke also features a built-in FM tuner to broadcast output to any radio receiver.
Griffin's TuneCenter mini-dock enables users to listen to music, look at images, or watch videos on a TV screen with speakers. The device displays navigation on the TV, hosting Wi-Fi access to support internet radio stations.
