Harman Kardon PR points to iPhone, iPod HD output

In a press release touting its latest home theater receivers, Harman Kardon has made mention of yet-unannounced high-definition video output features for the iPod and iPhone. Both the Harman Kardon AVR 3600 and AVR 2600 are compatible with the company’s The Bridge III Universal Dock for the iPod and iPhone, which, according to the release, allows the receivers to “play back HD videos from iPod or iPhone products.” While it was previously discovered that the iPhone 3GS is capable of playing back HD content on the device itself using a third-party application, this is the first mention of HD output for the iPod and iPhone, suggesting Apple may be planning to announce such a feature at its media event later today.

It only makes sense, this is the one iPod like feature the Zune HD has been openly bragging about for months. Apple may blithely disregard the radio and gimmicky wifi stuff, but MS and Apple are still fighting their good fights on basic features.

That would be a most welcome feature. I could then go back to having HD podcasts on both my iMac and my iPhone.
