Crestron CEN-IDOC Update

Crestron has updated the CEN-IDOC so that it now charges iPhones, iPod touch and nanos. If you purchased the CEN-IDOC before the update you can simply buy the new docking station and cable. Thanks Crestron!

This is from the newsletter :

“New orders of the CEN-IDOC include the new docking station. CEN-IDOC-DS is also available separately, to update CEN-IDOCs that were shipped prior to May 12, 2009. The model number and price of the CEN-IDOC and CEN-IDOC-DS haven’t changed.”

C.A.T.S. Logo Download

Download the completed logos below. The zipfile contains flat (non layered) logos. 1 version is 4 colors with no effects for screen printing (for audioslayve :). 1 version has all of the effects. I also have a flipped version of each of the flat files for those who want to experiment with printing a tshirt at home. Finally.. the layered project files are also included. These files can be opened and edited with Fireworks. I used CS4 to create them and i dont know if they are backwards compatible or not.

I am updating the cafepress store with the current version for anyone not interested in doing it themselves. The CATS cafepress store is located here : http://www.cafepress.com/CATSWAG .

Crestron’s MLX-2 is a handheld RF remote that uses Crestron’s infiNET EX™ 2-way RF communications. That means feeback people! Thank You Crestron!

I had mixed feelings about the MLX-2 when i caught a glimpse of a promo photo a few months back. The photo i saw had odd hard button labels that made the remote a joke. About a week later i saw another photo and the hard buttons were much better. The final version of the MLX-2 has a great set of hard buttons and i cant wait to use one in a system. Next time maybe we can get them to replace the LCD-button’s with a touchscreen :).
