[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Natalie Del Conte with CNET TV, here at CES with a first look at the Creative X Doc HD. Here's the device right here. What it's meant to do is just take all the media on your iPod and convert it into higher quality. So if it's video content it's gonna convert it into HD on your TV. If it's audio it's gonna convert it into X-Fi hi-fidelity content. And what it, how it does that, it takes the file and intelligently restores it from the damage that happened during the compression. Now Creative had it running here with their own iPod, and they were playing Bee Movie or Horton Hears a Who up here, and we decided to throw them for a little curveball by throwing our own iPod in. So we put it in here, and we're playing you can see, CNET Live podcasts. And the interface was a bit buggy. It's supposed to work with any iPod. It pretty much does, but this is an alpha product. When it ships in April it will be able to work with any iPod along the iPod products, including the iPod Touch and the iPhone. The cool thing about this is the interface. So when you plug it in, in order to watch it in your home you don't have to go over and scroll with the scroll wheel here. You can use the remote control to control the interface directly on your TV. This product costs three hundred and ninety nine dollars. It will come with the dock and one receiver that can receive a signal up to a hundred feet away.
