Crestron Module to Control iPort iPod Dock

Found in: Audio Equipment, Media

This module provides control of an  iPort iPod Dock via RS-232.  iPort provides in-wall and free standing docking stations for integrating your Apple iPod. From this docking station, audio and/or video can be inserted into a distribution system, and control of the iPod can be provided from the Crestron touchpanel.

This module was developed against the original versions of the iPort line.  Compatible models of the original line include:

  • iPort IW-4
  • iPort IW-5
  • iPort FS-4
  • iPort FS-5

The iPort IW-2, IW-3, and FS-3 can be controlled by RS-232 if you have the optional RS-232 card installed.

There is a new generation of iPort products available that support the same communications protocol but our module has not been tested against each model.  These include:

  • iPort IW-22
  • iPort FS-23

Controls available from the module include:

  • Transport controls and feedback
  • Browsing of the library with a back menu function
  • Shuffle and repeat functions
  • Currently playing song feedback including title, artist, album, elapsed time and total time
  • Supports audiobooks and podcasts
  • UTF-8 character handling to eliminate odd ASCII characters in serial fields

Version 6 of this module updates the VTPro template and corrects music video selection issues. It also queries for iPod name and status when an iPod is placed in the dock. Existing customers may Login to their accounts to download this upgrade.

Important Note: Version 6 of the module requires mainboard firmware version 1.30 or greater for in-wall iPorts and and mainboard firmware version 1.05 or greater for free-standing iPorts. Version 6 of the module also requires the "new RS232 card with Authentication IC". Users with older versions of the iPort firmware should contact ControlWorks to obtain Version 4 of the module or contact iPort for firmware upgrade information.
