iLuv i182 offers video recording to iPod, media cards


iLuv has announced its i182 video recording dock, which allows users to record real-time video content to a fifth-generation iPod or various media cards for playback in other devices. The iLuv i182 ($230; March) can record from various A/V sources, including live or recorded TV, DVD players or camcorders, via composite or S-Video inputs. The unit consists of a dock for direct iPod recording, as well as an adapter for recording video to Memory Stick and Memory Stick Duo cards, MultiMedia cards (MMC), Secure Digital (SD) cards, PMPs and USB storage devices.

“A simple user interface of just two buttons on the i182 dock allows users to make simple choices,” says iLuv “One button is to adjust the timer to record in increments of 30, 60, 120, or 180 minutes with resolution up to 640 x 480 at 2.5 Mbps for your iPod and 720 x 480 at 5Mbps for other PMPs. The second button on the device is to start and stop recording. The device automatically stops recording at the end of the specified duration. The next step is to transfer the video files to your digital player, memory card or other device. When using an iPod, iLuv software included with the i182 makes it possible to¬† automatically register the recorded video file with iTunes and sync to a PC or Mac.”

Before I get to excited, I need to know what the price will be.

Other than that my only gripe is no CF card slot but guess that can be fixed with a USB card reader/writer.

This looks cool, but, I’m not sure I understand the need for the matchbook sized device.  Couldn’t that have been rolled into the dock?

What would really be sweet is an iSight to iPod video recording device.

If it can’t play back immediately on the iPod it’s just a gimmick.

for 230 i rather buy another ipod. This aint worth the price, you can easily transfer any content to your PC and transfer the files to your ipod with most new software out in stores (vault 360), this is a gimmick and i wouldnt buy it.
