iPort FS23 - v 7.0.0

Extra Vegetables' driver for the iPort FS23 iPod dock provides full integration with the desktop iPod dock and Control4.  

iPort have collaborated with us on this driver to ensure that it is both fast and reliable. This has meant that the dock is really simple to install as part of a Control4 installation. Your customers will be able to fully browse the content on the docked iPod. The driver also retrieves the cover art from the song playing. The dock is controlled over IP Ethernet. Separate cables are then connected for the audio and optional video outputs.

The FS23 produces a high resolution component video TV display for choosing music. Our driver allows your customers to make their selections using the Control4 interfaces too (including the Control4 iPad/iPhone apps) For more detail on the iPort FS 23 please click here.
