Crestron CEN-iPOD

This site has moved to

Crestron is known for its home theater control systems that include touch panel interfaces and are expensive. I am surprised that the company is this late into the iPod game. Anyways, they have been showing their CEN-iPOD dock at CEDIA 2005 that can be connected to the Crestron controller via CAT-5 wired Ethernet. iPod is plug and play compatible with Crestron's Adagio control system and once connected, music can flow anywhere in the house. And that's not all: Crestron managed to mimic iPod menus on their touch panels that can control the iPod. But wait, there is more: CEN-IPOD is compatible with iPod Photo and can put those pictures on the the screen of your "Crestroned" TV.
Adagio control system can handle multiple iPods and allows you to name each of them individually. Besides that, system can "discover" a connected iPod with a press of a button without any PC or touch panel.
