PAUSE, REWIND AND FAST FORWARD BROADCASTS WITH NEW JVC SIRIUS PLUG N PLAY TUNER|
WAYNE, NJ, November 10, 2005 A new Sirius plug n play tuner from JVC allows listeners to pause, rewind and fast forward programming. The new JVC KT-PK3000, which can be used in vehicles, at home or with a dedicated JVC boom box, is JVCs latest generation PDA-sized Sirius Satellite radio. It will be available in mid-November.
What sets the KT-PK3000 apart from earlier JVC plug n play models is its ability to pause, rewind or replay more than 40 minutes of programming, providing listeners with a new level of flexibility and convenience. Its compact size makes it easy to move from one location to another, and it uses the same car kit, home kit and boom box as JVCs current plug n play model.
The KT-PK3000 boasts a vibrant LCD panel with a six-line display, intuitive controls and multiple menu options for further enhanced legibility and safety by minimizing distractions while driving. Users can set up to 30 stream presets use Memory Capture to store 20 favorite songs that are searched for in incoming channels anytime this feature is activated. All functions can be locked or unlocked to ensure that preferences remain intact until the user decides its time for a change.
The KT-PK3000s Jump Button puts traffic, weather reports or a favorite Sirius channel just one touch away. Users who want to know what theyll hear next can search ahead in a stream to see what artists/songs/program will be featured on any Sirius channel.
Additional features include a dimmer/contrast control, channel skip capability, auto shut down, sleep timer, and wireless remote control.
