InlineControl version 2
InlineControl has launched iTControl 2, the latest version of its iTunes-integration application for Mac. The program is designed for system integrators and control system programmers, enabling iTunes and FrontRow integration into a Crestron, AMX, or other control system. The update adds a song searching command and a new setup utility, while connection changes now allow the use of an IP or RS-232 port. Program reliability and memory usage have also been improved from previous versions.
iTControl can be used to view all playlist tracks and details including the song name, artist, album and genre. Instead of manually searching every song, users can also configure the program to automatically shuffle through the music, with options to view the shuffle status. iTControl is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or later and requires a control system such as the Crestron, QM-RMC, or AMX NI-700. The update can be obtained directly from the company, with a price of $150 for new users.
