The KP-4000 offers two-way control of an iPod via URC’s PSX-2 Personal Server, and two-way control of PC- or Mac-based iTunes music collections via pre-built modules. The KP-4000 can display metadata such as lists of artists, albums and songs, as well as “Now Playing” cover art.
The KP-4000 opens up whole house control possibilities for a customer’s entire digital music library. When used with URC’s PSX-2 Personal Server, KP-4000s can deliver unprecedented control of a docked iPod from numerous locations in the home, with features such as “Play more from this Artist/Genre,” “Shuffle Genre/Artist/Album/Composer,” the ability to build jukebox playlists on the fly, rich macros, and more. Using URC’s PSX-Link Software, the iPod can stay in the dock and sync with any Mac or PC in the house that is running iTunes, which means no more “white wire” issues for the customer.
In addition, URC’s free My Music module, powered by Autonomic Controls Inc., merges iTunes content with Windows Media Player content, so it doesn’t matter where media is stored, or from whom they are purchased. My Music is perfect for customers with large digital music collections who would like to queue up playlists. My Music can even play lossless FLAC files. Further, installers can even use Apple’s Airport Express to wirelessly connect PCs, Macs and Apple TVs to the A/V system and control iTunes music and video through the KP-4000.
