Overview: The myvu
personal media viewer is specifically designed to work with video iPods. Worn
like eyeglasses, the myvu lets you watch and listen to videos from your iPod.
Additional nose pads and earbud pads are supplied for best fit.
Compatibility: The myvu is
compatible with all 5th Generation video iPods: 30GB, 60GB, and 80GB.
Optics: The myvu uses the
SolidOptex Optical system with dual color LCDs. The LCDs have a resolution of
320 x 240, with 24-bit color and a 50-60Hz frame rate. The image is equivalent
to viewing a 27-inch TV at approximately 2 meters.
Power Options: The myvu can be
powered in the following ways:
- Back-pack Battery: The
myvu can be powered by the supplied Back-pack Lithium-Ion battery. When the
iPod battery and the Back-pack battery are both fully charged, you can enjoy
up to 6 hours of viewing time (up to 5 hours for a 30GB iPod). When used for
audio only, the battery provides up to 20 hours of playback. The battery has
4 LEDs to indicate remaining battery life.
- AC Adapter: The viewer
will operate continuously when plugged into a wall outlet with the AC
adapter. You can listen/view to the iPod while charging the Back-pack
battery and the iPod battery with the AC adapter.
- Car Adapter: The myvu will
operate continuously (or charge the Back-pack and iPod batteries) when
plugged into the vehicle's cigarette lighter or 12-volt power supply via the
supplied cigarette lighter adapter.
- USB: You can
simultaneously synchronize your iPod while charging both the iPod's battery
and the Back-pack battery. You may also charge only the Back-pack battery
using an iPod standard USB cable (Dock connector-to-Type A USB).
Protective Cover: The myvu
includes a protective cover which slides over the iPod and Back-pack battery
together. The cover has two groove positions to accommodate the thinner 30GB
iPods as well as the thicker 60GB and 80GB models. The cover has an opening to
give you full access to the iPod's LCD screen and click-wheel. The cover comes
with a removable belt clip.
In-line Controls: The cable
attached to the myvu viewer includes an in-line pendant with controls. This
allows you to control the iPod and the myvu settings when the iPod is tucked
away in a pocket or backpack. The controls include: Volume Up, Volume Down,
Reverse, Fast Forward, Play/Pause, and a Mode button which controls brightness
and contrast. All buttons on the pendant can be locked by sliding the Hold
switch. The pendant has a removable 360°
