ReQuest‘s iQ System Gets Satellite/Terrestrial Radio Expansion, Legacy Control Options

Ballston Spa, New York–August 28, 2007–ReQuest, Inc., the innovator that leads the custom-installation music-server market, has added a double handful of valuable new features to its groundbreaking iQ Intelligent Music System. The server-based iQ multiroom solution, which can play music to as many as eight different rooms, now enjoys flexible integration and full control over such legacy devices as cable boxes and CD players through ReQuest’s new Network IR Extender. Just as exciting, terrestrial and satellite tuners from Polk Audio and NuVO, can now be integrated into an iQ system with fully “two-way” remote control and display.

ReQuest‘s iQ.RCK Radio Connection Kit seamlessly integrates Polk‘s XM (XRt12) Satellite Radio tuner, NuVo‘s Dual AM/FM (NVT2DFG) tuner, or NuVo‘s Dual AM/FM and XM (NVT2XFG) tuners into an iQ Intelligent Music System. The iQ.RCK kit includes USB-serial and data cabling to interface one or more NuVO or Polk units with the iQ Intelligent Music System. Simply plug a tuner into the iQ.RCK, click on Detect in the iQ configuration utility, and the radio controls, station and RDS data is instantly available on all iQ touchscreens–no custom programming is required. The iQ.RCK supports full two-way communications of station/stream selection commands, and or track/artist. Users can configure up to 30 favorite presets simply by holding down a Preset icon on the touchscreen.

Another new ReQuest option, the iQ.NIRE Network IR Extender brings iQ Intelligent Music System retroactive access to older components that rely on non-networked infrared (IR) protocols. For IR control of conventional components such as cable boxes or CD players, the ReQuest Network IR Extender provides three IR “blaster” outputs that deliver IR commands to multiple components. Commands originate from the iQ server and travel in IP format over the home network cabling to the ReQuest IR Extender. Consequently, this can reside physically in any room or location on the local net, simplifying the solution of even the most challenging wiring obstacles. Programming IR commands is easy and intuitive, using pre-built templates and commands, with the result that even classic older components can participate smoothly and intelligently in an iQ system.
