Stocks, Weather, Webcams, & Calendar Widgets Now Included in All ReQuest iQ Systems

Ballston Spa, New York–August 28, 2007–ReQuest, Inc has further solidified its leadership position in music-server and whole-house audio innovation with the addition to its powerful iQ Intelligent Multiroom Solution of unique, useful, fun software widgets. The iQ system, which delivers audiophile quality music to as many as eight rooms or zones from its internal hard disk-based music server and associated sources, now offers four new built-in widgets that automatically access the network and internet to provide information throughout the home. These free programs deliver stock, weather, webcam, and calendar information to the iQ‘s touchscreen system-controllers, including the freestanding 15-inch TS.15 and the in-wall, 3.5-inch TS.35.

Widgets are small, interactive software programs that run on the iQ Intelligent Media Server and can be viewed and controlled from any room or zone equipped with a ReQuest touchscreen, tabletop touchscreen controller, and computer.
Stock Ticker allows users to view and monitor their selected equities, funds, or other investments, with automatically updated information. On the larger TS.15 Touchscreen Controller, the user may also chart performance over time-frames, choosing day, month, year, or five-year displays.

WebCam (available via the 15-inch TS.15 Touchscreen only) lets iQ owners add up to six individually named webcams, monitoring locations around their property or around the world. For example, the WebCam widget might offer visual access to the front door at home, the boat-dock at the lake house, the warehouse floor at the plant, and a
child‘s room. What‘s more, any publicly available webcam can be integrated into the display, providing up-to-the-minute views of weather at your favorite ski resort, or the traffic on your work commute and more. (Webcams are assigned simply by entering each one‘s unique URL.) Users can set the size and refresh intervals, monitoring activities live as they happen.

Weather Display live/updated two-day weather forecast for any U.S. city or town, or any location in the world with graphical conditions, high/low temperature display.

Calendar Display browseable calendar by month while showing images from user-selected screen-saver file in slideshow format.

Users select a widget from the icon strip visible along the bottom of either screen. Any of the four different widgets can run simultaneously on different screens, and of course have no impact on music streaming. Essential iQ server and system functions always remain instantly available via the Touchscreens‘ always-on volume, mute, and navigation soft keys, and of course the iQ home page is never farther away than the touch of a finger.

ReQuest‘s software Widgets for its iQ Intelligent Music System are available immediately and are automatically installed on iQ systems connected to the Internet.
