Advanced Technology Office (ATO) on Monday announced they’ve improved the retail kit for their
iSee 360i Video Recorder, a video device that works with iPods. The iSee 360i costs $199, a $50 price reduction over what the package cost previously, according to ATO.
The iSee 360i is a Personal Media Player (PMP) that uses the iPod as a storage medium, and enables you to record video without using a Mac or PC first. Because the iPod is acting as the storage device for the iSee 360i, the device also works with iPods that don’t support video by themselves, such as iPod nanos or older “click wheel”-equipped iPods that can’t run video on their own.
ATO reports that the $199 retail package now includes adapters to enable first and second-generation iPod nanos to work in the device, as well as 30GB video iPods. Those adapters were previously sold as optional accessories for $19.95.
The iSee 360i sports its own 3.6-inch color LCD display, and an internal battery that extends the battery life of the iPod by up to four hours. The iSee 360i can also output to a television and provides photo viewing features such as pan and zoom and user-controlled slideshow settings.
The iSee 360i ships with the aforementioned adapters, docking station, AV in/out cables, AC power adapter and battery, software CD, documentation and protective sleeve.
