    Default Dexim DRA022 Connects iPod, iPhone to Home Entertainment Center


    If you haven't already blown your extra spending cash on the must-have iPod beanie (insert sarcasm here), perhaps a more worthwhile investment would be a cool new gadget from Dexim.

    Although many iPhone and iPod users have a Dexim dock for charging their mobile devices, the accessory makers recently unveiled a new device that puts the iPhone/iPod front and center in your home entertainment setup. Best of all, the Dexim DRA022 is not only an entertainment dock, it also incorporates the familiar battery extender we've come to know and love from Dexim.

    From TechNewsWorld:

    Using the WiFi capabilities of the iPhone or iPod touch, an operator can surf the Net, showcase photos, and display video on a high-definition television at a resolution of 720i, as well as listen to music on a home stereo system.
    The dock. which retails for about eighty bucks, arrives with a component AV cable, mini HDMI cable, and a USB AC adapter. So no matter what your need is in the moment - connecting to a TV, charging your handset, or synchronizing with a computer - the dock has you covered. The dock also comes with a nifty little remote control with a 30-foot range for selecting content, adjusting volume and controlling selections.

    Eight inserts are packed with the unit to ensure a smooth fit with all the latest iPhone and iPod models, including the new iPhone 3GS and iPod touch.
    With an increasing number of entertainment demands being placed on the iPhone with each passing day, it's easy to see how popular a device like this could ultimately become in light of its ability to provide yet another fresh opportunity to make the iPhone and iPod an even more centralized focus of at-home entertainment.

    When designing the new entertainment dock, Dexim was sensitive to the current economic climate, according to General Manager Laconia Cheng. "Right now the economy is bad, so we consider price acceptance and try to offer a reasonable price."

    Wow this seems very interesting & worth a buy. Although, from what the description says, it kinda still lags a bit on use-ability. I'll have to look more into it!

    The addition of HDMI on a 'low cost' product is interesting. I wonder if they access the content directly from the internal flash for the HDMI source or do they re-digitize the analogue outputs?

    this is a great looking product. i currently have the griffin version of this. it basicly does the same thing minus the stand and remote.

    but i wonder, there a way to stream the video out other then using youtube or ipod video? it would be great if you could stream the output of let's say slingbox to a HDTV if your away from home.

    Either that's a typo or Dexim just defined their own video standard

    OK, the unit looks kind of cool...but
    resolution is only 720i, and when you are used to 1080P...

    Can someone confirm if bluetooth would still work while docked? Would docking an iPhone to this thing and then playing games via a bluetooth controller be plausible?

    Supposedly you can do this with Zod's NES emulator and a Wiimote, but I don't have one Wonder if you can do it (or even run apps) while docked on this thing?

    I've been doing this for quite some time with Air Video and the Apple Component cables. With a decent wifi connection, I can stream movies and TV to a flat screen thousands of miles away, even converting from divx or mvk on the fly. The one thing that's been missing is remote control. So if this works, and the HDMI is good (likely it's got a Component to HDMI converter in it), it's a great step forward.
