Crestron has introduced a 2-way iPod interface that reproduces the iPod display and controls on any Crestron touchpanel. The iPod Connect CEN-IPOD offers high-speed Ethernet communications with the Crestron control system, buffered unbalanced and CAT5 balanced stereo outputs, and supports 3G/4G iPods, iPod mini, and iPod photo. Pricing was not available.
“Just plug the iPod into its docking station and replicate the iPod experience on a Crestron touchpanel, instantly sharing your entire personal music collection with speakers throughout the house,” says Crestron. “Select tunes by genre, artist, album and track, and even view iPod photos right on the touchpanel.” [via Engadget]
