April 11, 2008 The iPhone’s quest for world domination continues with the announcement that SpeakerCraft’s new interface for its award-winning MODE multi-room A/V control system allows the Apple iPhone or iPod Touch to be used as a wireless remote with control of all sources and routing accessed on the touch screen through a GUI. The system operates through the home’s wireless data network via a wired port on the user’s wireless router. An unlimited number of iPhones can be used to operate the system and two iPhones can operate the system simultaneously in multiple zones.
iPhone users will find the interface featuring large virtual buttons shares the look and feel of other iPhone functions. It is generated through an embedded web server residing on a chip inside SpeakerCraft’s ERS 1.0 Ethernet to serial adapter and is accessed through the iPhone’s Safari browser. This means there is no time wasted downloading or installing an application on the iPhone itself. The ERS also contains a version of the interface designed to display and operate on a standard PC or Mac. This offers the user the option to control the system from the iPhone/iTouch or any PC on the network.
The ERS 1.0 with the embedded software has an MSRP of US$1,000.
