Altec Lansing introduced the Octiv 650 docking speaker system for the iPhone and iPod, which delivers broad spectrum audio while displaying full screen video from an iPhone or iPod Touch on a TV screen. Utilizing Altec Lansing's free Music Mood app, users can unwind with a number of soothing pre-loaded videos and sounds.

Fusion of Sound and Design
With discreet lines and a flat front panel, the unique wedge shape provides room-filling, crystal clear sound without taking up much space. Powerful, well balanced audio is delivered through two 3″ full-range drivers and a nested 4″ subwoofer for deep bass. The attractive yet simple design blends seamlessly with almost any decor.

To enjoy streaming video with immersive audio, users can watch full screen Netflix movies and YouTube videos on a television from an iPhone or iPod Touch using the Octiv 650 component and composite video out jacks while enjoying superior sound quality. For greater song selection and to further expand home theater versatility, a second audio device can be added through the auxiliary input. A full-featured remote lets users control the audio and navigate their device from across the room. To help ensure a call is never missed, the Octiv 650 automatically pauses when a call is received on an iPhone.

Set the Mood
No matter what the desired mood, the Octiv 650 can help set the tone with Altec Lansing's free Music Mood app. Users can watch and listen to a number of serene videos and sounds such as a crackling fireplace or a calming river stream with the app's Ambient Sound and Visual Library. For additional customization, the user can pair each video to their audio counterpart and let the full package work its magic.
