Silex Technology has launched wiDock, a wireless dock for the Apple iPod that allows users to transfer songs and videos.

According to Silex, the wiDock is the first solution to transfer songs and videos to an iPod wirelessly while connected to a stereo and TV, becoming an integral part of the living room entertainment system. Users can wirelessly sync with a computer, play music from the stereo, play videos on the TV and charge the iPod battery.

“As we leveraged our foundation in the device connectivity industry and evaluated the iPod accessory market, we felt it was important to provide a wireless solution for the transferring of songs and videos to an iPod,” said Keith Sugawara, general manager of the connectivity and wireless division at silex. “At the same time, we wanted to eliminate the need of moving the iPod between the computer, charger and the TV/stereo and provide a solution that will result in a must-have iPod accessory for all iPod users.”
