Harman International Industries has released its new JBL OnBeat loudspeaker docking station, a JBL dock for the iPad, iPhone and iPod.
Bringing Netflix movie streaming, gaming, YouTube clip watching and more, the JBL OnBeat dock features dual Phoenix full-range transducers with computer-optimized DSP equalization. A universal connector that docks an iPad, iPod or iPhone lets you rotate iDevice screens to portrait or landscape orientation for the best video display, and an infrared remote (IR) puts you in full control of system functions and music navigation from across the room.
You can stream movies, photos and videos, and share the content on the Web in your living room with family and friends through the addition of an optional composite cable that can send video content from the device directly to your TV. The new JBL OnBeat also features a USB connection to sync and charge devices when connected to the iTunes music library (cable not included), and a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack auxiliary input that connects to most portable media devices (cable not included).
The dock features a dynamic JBL Weave design styling. Brackets to attach the iPod, iPhone and iPad to the dock are included in the package. The JBL OnBeat also serves as a charging station for your iPod or iPhone while it is docked.
The JBL OnBeat loudspeaker dock will be available in April in black for US$149.95. For additional information or to purchase, go to http://www.jbl.com/onbeat .
