By recognizing early-on the need for integrating audio and video content from the iPod® and iPod touch® into residential A/V systems, iPort® created the industry standard for controlling and playing iPod content. iPort is the only iPod and iPod touch solution that works flawlessly and seamlessly with a large variety of leading local-zone audio systems, home automation systems, and A/V control systems, providing integrators the ultimate flexibility for including iPods and iPod touch as A/V sources in their projects.
The iPort IW-22’s RJ-45 modular connections deliver balanced audio up to 500 feet and unbalanced video up to 30 feet. iPort’s integrated RS-232 allows compatible control systems to control the iPod/iPod touch with two-way communication (including iPod metadata). An IR control connection allows control of most iPod/iPod touch audio functions by compatible IR control systems, and the illuminated LED on the faceplate allows IR control of essential iPod menu and playback functions by an optional iPort EX-1 remote. The included wall plates provide stereo RCA audio and S-video, component, and composite video connections, RS-232 and IR control connections, and connections for the included regulated DC power supply. The IW-22 accepts all Apple dock connector iPod models, and includes a back support, — a rubberized adjustment disc that compensates for the varying thicknesses of different iPod models.
