Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) just announced that the company is now shipping its RTiDock iPod dock. Sporting a host of powerful features not found on other iPod docks -- such as the ability to sync with iTunes over the network and full navigation support through a video display device -- the RTiDock allows consumers to connect their iPod to their local or distributed audio system and conveniently control it through an RTI in-wall or handheld controller.
Simplifying installations with a slim design and the flexibility of rack-mount or desktop options, the RTiDock utilizes Virtual Sync technology to sync with iTunes over the network. The device offers an on-screen GUI (graphical user interface) and component video output for navigation through a video display device. For added reliability and a clean design, the unit's sliding tray provides storage of the iPod.
The RTiDock offers easy integration with RTI control devices, providing access to all transport functions of the iPod through full IR support. For more control options, navigation through artists, songs, albums, and playlists is enabled via bidirectional communication over RS-232 or IP with many RTI handheld and in-wall controllers.
The RTiDock is available at an MSRP of $599.
