DLO HomeDock Pro
DLO today introduced the HomeDock Pro, an updated version of its longstanding iPod dock system. Unlike the earlier HomeDock and HomeDock Deluxe, the Pro model is built for home theater integration and has RS-232 as well as RS-485 ports to let more advanced stereo systems automatically control the iPod and trigger it alongside lighting, sound, and television systems. The Pro edition also adds the ability to navigate and play videos directly from a TV-based menu system; the previous Deluxe model only allows for music navigation on-screen, DLO says. An 18-button wireless remote is bundled with the dock. The dock works with all click wheel-based iPods. Pricing a launch date have not been announced.
