Crestron CEN-IPOD (http://rbi.ims.ca/4921-543) .This interface connects an iPOD to a touch panel display that provides remote control and navigation. Plugging the iPOD into the docking station wirelessly links to the touchpanel for selecting and sharing music through remote speakers. A 30-pin connector on the cable or in the docking station attaches to the iPOD. Besides data transfer, the connection provides power to charge the iPOD's rechargeable battery. In addition to providing high-speed Ethernet communications with the Crestron control system, the CEN-IPOD has buffered unbalanced and CAT5 balanced stereo outputs to enable interfacing to any Crestron audio distribution system.
