Scosche Industries Introduces Bluetooth Wireless Interface for iPod and MP3 Players
Scosche Industries has developed and is now shipping a Bluetooth wireless interface for Apple iPod and MP3 players for aftermarket brand-name head units and home audio systems.

The Scosche transmitter connects directly to the headphone output connector of the iPod or MP3 unit and transmits to a Bluetooth receiver connected to the auxiliary input of a vehicle's head unit or home audio system. Scosche's Bluetooth wireless technology transmits continuous streaming audio with digital sound CD quality to your car or home receiver

Scosche's Bluetooth wireless technology features a wireless range of 30 feet and a fifteen hour transmitter lithium-ion battery life. It is Bluetooth 1.2 compliant for continuous streaming audio and can pair with an unlimited number of receivers.

The IPBCK, designed for third and fourth generation iPods and iPod minis, or UBCK designed for universal MP3 players, will work with aftermarket head units with RCA inputs. The Bluetooth interface will allow a passenger in the front or back seat to control the iPod or MP3 unit playing through the vehicle's head unit. Included in the vehicle kit are a 12volt car charger, rechargeable transmitter, and the necessary cables for a simple installation.

Using a home audio/video system, a user can add a home receiver kit or purchase a Bluetooth wireless kit just for the home. The Scosche wireless Bluetooth interface in the home will allow anyone to listen to the Apple iPod or MP3 player with digital sound CD quality through the home audio system.

The primary interface includes the necessary cables for plug-n-play capability. The car kit for iPod players will retail at US$249.99 and will be available mid-August. The universal Bluetooth kit for MP3 players will be available in September and will retail at US$249.99. finally, the home kits will be available later in the year.
