The JVC TeleDock Series of LCD televisions has a new 2009 line and is the first to integrate an iPod dock into the design. Every member of the line includes a flip-down iPod dock located at the base of the television, creating a direct link for the iPod to playback through the set. Video, sound, and photos can all be accessed for viewing or listening through the TV's sound and visual system and the docked iPod can be controlled using the TV's particular remote. The remote is designed with a circular keypad that mimics the iPod's normal control screen, making an easy transition for the user. This second generation TeleDock line improves on the first TeleDock line by displaying an iPod like menu on the screen, supporting music search, and allowing low resolution files to be played in a smaller size.
