CES: Elgato shipping Lightning version of EyeTV Mobile soon
Tuesday, January 8, 2013 @ 11:55am

Video import device manufacturer Elgato has announced a Lightning connector version of its EyeTV Mobile product. Using the same enclosure as the original EyeTV Mobile, the new model eliminates the need and expense of a 30-pin to Lightning connector adapter and connects directly the the new lineup of compatible iOS devices.



The device duplicates the functionality of the older version of the EyeTV Mobile. It receives digital television with Dyle mobile TV broadcasts using the ASTC-mobile protocol by way of the included miniature telescopic antenna connected to the device. Other antennas are available for the device if needed. Working with the mobile app, the tuner also allows viewers to enjoy a full range of TV viewing features on their iPad, iPod Touch or iPhones, displaying live broadcast TV from participating Dyle stations. In addition to live broadcast TV from Dyle partner stations, users can access any other stations that may be broadcasting to mobile in a specific market. Dyle TV is available from more than 90 stations in 35 markets, reaching approximately 55 percent of the US population. Pricing for the Lightning version of the EyeTV Mobile is not yet available. The version for a 30-pin device is $100. An El Gato representative told us that the device would be "shipping very soon."
