The new Crestron CEN-IDOCV is the next-generation interface and control solution for the company’s iPod personal media player. It has been designed to integrate iTunes audio and video with a Crestron whole-house AV system, using two-way communication to reproduce the iPod experience on Crestron touchpanels.
With Crestron exclusive USB over Ethernet technology, the CEN-IDOCV synchronizes the iPod with any networked computer running Apple iTunes. The IDOCV is PoE compatible, drawing power through the LAN wiring and eliminating the need for a nearby outlet. Just plug the iPod into the docking station to experience your entire personal media collection throughout the house and on any Crestron video touchpanel.
The CEN-IDOCV uses the latest Apple authentication chip, enabling high-speed browsing and compatibility with the latest Apple products and features, including sixth generation and newer iPod classic models as well as additional late model iPod devices. The supplied docking station charges and remotely syncs the iPod with iTunes as if it were directly connected to a computer with the Apple USB cable, delivering full capabilities for organizing and transferring music and video files, podcasts, audio books, and playlists.
The personal iPod docking and undocking provided by CEN-IDOCV is designed to serve as a complement to the Crestron iServer, which uses the iPod as a dedicated whole-house audio server. The CEN-IDOCV-DSW wall mount interface for iPod is coming soon.
