Escient FP-1 iPod Dock - December 7th, 2008
The Escient FP-1 iPod docking station provides all the functionality and management features that you should expect from a Fireball. Multiple custom install features allow for a seamless integration of an iPod into any home automation project. An iPod can now become a music server that distributes all audio content throughout the home, and makes it suitable for the most demanding multi room audio installations.
Escient’s FP-1 can stream music from any Fireball music server and even a PC, without a docked iPod. Other Escient music servers that are part of the same network can access and play music stored on the iPod, including songs purchased from the iTunes store.
An IP and RS232 port offer wired control capabilities for other third party home automation control systems like AMX and Philips. The graphic user interface provided displays the artist, album, song title, and even the album’s cover. The Escient FP-1 supports and streams multiple audio formats, ensuring the highest quality possible from any audio system.
