Home Dock Pro unveiled
DLO today introduced the HomeDock Pro, an updated version of its longstanding iPod dock system that is built for home theater integration -- unlike the earlier HomeDock and HomeDock Deluxe. -- The system features RS-232 as well as RS-485 ports to enable more advanced stereo systems to 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 allows for music navigation on-screen only. The dock comes bundled with an 18-button wireless remote, and works with all click wheel-based iPods, according to Electronista (pricing and availability were unavailable).
