JVC TeleDock LCDs Sport a Built-in iPod Dock

Posted Thu Feb 4, 2010 at 12:00 PM PST by Mike Attebery

Looking for a TV with a built in iPod docking station right in the front? Well look no further.

JVC’s TeleDock series of LCDs are a bit different. They’ve got a 120Hz refresh rate and a 1080p screen resolution. They come in sizes from 32” on up to 46”. Oh, and they’ve got an iPod dock built right in.

It’s a solution, admittedly, for those who want to hook their iPods and iPhones up to their new TVs. It’s not the most elegant solution, since it leaves the iPod sitting right in front of the television on a flipped out plastic dock, but for what it is, it works.

You can play music and movies directly from your iPod, and use JVC’s remote to control playback. If you want, you can even play music from the iPod while watching TV. Videos from the iPod can be played back at different aspect ratios, though the lower the quality, the smaller the picture.

The JVC TeleDock series also comes complete with three HDMI inputs as well as two component, two S-video, and a PC input.

Pricing has not yet been determined for the JVC TeleDock, but we’ll see the release of JVC’s new sets this spring.
