iLuv i182 iPod Dock

iPod accessory creator iLuv today unveiled the i182 recording dock. Rather than play back content, the i182 records video through its RCA or S-video input and transfers the footage to a storage device, including Apple's fifth-generation iPod. The videos themselves are not immediately playable on the iPod, the company is quick to note; instead, custom software on a host Mac or PC recognizes clips stored on the iPod's drive and converts them to files that synchronize through iTunes. An adapter is also included (shown at left) that plugs into the Dock Connector on the iLuv dock and records directly to SD/MMC cards or any USB external drives.

Recording can be left unattended, the developer says: a button on the dock sets recording time in 30-minute intervals, up to 180 minutes, while the video resolution can be formatted specifically for an iPod's 640x480 resolution or the full 720x480 widescreen resolution of DVDs. The i182 is due to ship in March at a price of $230. [via iLounge]
