Expanding their line of premium mobile iPod® accessories, Sonic Impact, makers of the highly-popular i-Fusion TM and T-Amp TM, introduces the first mobile iPod Video player. Called Sonic Impact Video 55, the product combines the T-Amp speaker technology for quality sound with the portability features of the i-Fusion for a truly unique iPod Video viewing system.

Sonic Impact Video 55 is engineered to maximize video portability. Featuring a seven inch widescreen LCD, it condenses all the elements needed for premium iPod Video viewing-speakers, screen, iPod Video and connectors into one case that is easy to carry and virtually impossible to damage. Additionally, it features the MaxxBass Psycho-Acoustic Technology bass response and advanced digital amplifier and matched Neodymium speaker drivers based off of Sonic Impact's celebrated T-Amp speaker system.

Granted the official "Made for iPod" designation by Apple, the Video 55 is like a mini television screen and boom box all built within a rugged storage case for the iPod Video. In addition to the video and speaker systems and docking station, the case features a pop open door for storing any size iPod and a second compartment with a lithium ion battery and room for storing earbuds. Users can fully protect their sound system and iPod as well as downsize their travel items from three to one.

The Video 55's design makes it an ideal accessory for all types of iPod Video users in all types of travel and leisure situations -- from families on camping vacations, college kids at the beach, professionals on business trips to couples sitting on their back porches.

The system also features a built-in iPod Docking Station Connector for playing, downloading and recharging.
