DLO'S Homedock Deluxe Now Plays iPod Movies In DVD Quality On A TV

DLO Release

September 28, 2006, CHARLESTON, SC–Digital Lifestyle Outfitters' (DLO) HomeDock Deluxe now lets iPod owners enjoy their new iTunes movies on their home television and entertainment systems in DVD quality resolution, the company said today. The HomeDock Deluxe costs $149.99 and is available at iPod retailers nationwide.

With Apple Computer's (NASDAQ: AAPL) recent announcement of its new iTunes movie service, the DLO HomeDock Deluxe's impact on an iPod owner's ability to enjoy all that an iPod has to offer is greatly enhanced.

Notably, now that Apple's iTunes movies and TV shows feature higher resolutions (640 x 480), the HomeDock Deluxe will play a person's movies or video from an iPod on a big-screen TV at near-DVD quality. It does this while giving owners the ability to control their iPod's video from the sofa with an included full-function remote control.

"We are excited about the new iTunes movie service, just like every iPod fan is right now," said Jeff Grady, CEO of DLO. "iTunes Movies fit perfectly with what our premium dock offers an iPod owner. You really want to get your music and your video out of the tiny iPod and up on the big screen. The HomeDock Deluxe is the finest way to do that right now. With the new, higher-quality resolution it's an even better experience. It looks fantastic."

The HomeDock Deluxe also adds a new twist to the iPod by displaying music content onto a television screen and allowing users to navigate, select and play their songs using an included remote control. The HomeDock Deluxe simply connects to a person's TV and home stereo via standard A/V cables or S-video cable, and allows control of iPod's iTunes movies, television shows and videos, photo slideshows and, of course, music - all from the comfort of the couch.

Browsing through Playlists, Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres and more from the sofa with the HomeDock Deluxe is a completely new experience for iPod owners. Users can control over 14 playback functions with the remote control. The HomeDock Deluxe features an original, customizable interface. It even has screensavers to prevent plasma burn. Song information is large and easy to read from anywhere in the room.

The HomeDock Deluxe has two distinct modes: On-Screen Navigation Mode for music interface on a TV and iPod Mode to play movies, videos or photo slideshows on a TV directly from the iPod. A person can quickly switch modes on their HomeDock Deluxe with a push of a button to watch and control videos and photo slideshows from an iPod on their television, or browse and play their music with on-screen navigation.

Pricing and Availability: The DLO HomeDock Deluxe Home Entertainment Center for video iPod, iPod nano, iPod photo and iPod mini is available for $149.99 at iPod retail outlets nationwide. For more information, please visit
