Download Crestron SyncThe CEN-IDOCV is the next generation Crestron® interface and control solution for the popular Apple® iPod® personal media player[1]. The compact and stylish docking station can be placed anywhere on a counter, shelf, or other convenient location, while the interface module gets mounted neatly out of site nearby. This solution affords a very clean, clutter-free appearance with just one small wire visible.

The interface module provides audio, video, USB, and high-speed Ethernet connectivity for full integration with a Crestron whole-house AV system[2]. Crestron uses the latest Apple authentication chip in the CEN-IDOCV, enabling high speed music library browsing and compatibility with the latest Apple products and features. The chip supports 6th generation (and later) iPod classic®, and any iPod nano®, iPod touch®, or iPhone®.[3]

Easy Docking
Simply placing the iPod into the docking station (CEN-IDOCV-DS[4]) instantly connects it for sharing with speakers and video monitors throughout the home or office.

Touchpanel Control
Integrating the iPod with a Crestron system enables full control and navigation using touchpanels, APADs, keypads, computers, and handheld remotes. From any touchpanel, you can search the entire iPod library by genre, artist, album and track, and even view album cover art[5].

Sync to iTunes® over Ethernet
Using USB-over-IP technology and Crestron Sync, the CEN-IDOCV allows the iPod to connect with any networked computer running Apple iTunes software right from the docking station. Syncing the iPod to iTunes works the same as if it were hooked up with a USB cable, affording full capabilities for organizing and transferring music and video files, podcasts, audio books, and playlists anytime you want.

Instructions and download

Audio and Video Distribution
The CEN-IDOCV module allows stereo audio, composite video, and component video signals to be fed from the iPod to your home theater or multiroom distribution system.[2]

Crestron Home® CAT5 Balanced AV
Crestron Home (CH) CAT5 Balanced technology allows the CEN-IDOCV to be located up to 500 feet from the central equipment, interfacing directly with other CH-compatible devices like the Crestron CNX-BIPAD8, CNX-PVID8, and Sonnex™ SWAMP-24X8 using ordinary CAT5 type wire. Connecting the CEN-IDOCV to conventional AV equipment, or to a Crestron Adagio® Home Entertainment system, is facilitated using the ABAR-1 Balanced Audio Receiver[6] and ABVR-1 Balanced Video Receiver[6].

Adagio® Plug-and-Play
The CEN-IDOCV affords easy plug-and-play setup as part of a complete Adagio system. Without any programming, Adagio delivers full access and control of the docked iPod from every room.

Power over Ethernet
For operation and charging the iPod battery, the CEN-IDOCV gets its power right through the LAN wiring using 802.3af PoE technology. PoE (Power over Ethernet), eliminates the need for a separate wall-wart power supply or dedicated power wiring. A PoE Injector (PWE-4803RU optional) simply connects inline with the LAN cable, allowing for installation at any convenient location. For applications with multiple CEN-IDOCVs or other PoE-powered devices, a Crestron PoE switch (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-24[6]) may be used for a streamlined networking solution with built-in PoE.
