New NetStreams multi-room solution uses VUDU XL

VUDU Box

NetStreams presented its new multi-room solution which uses VUDU XL as a video server. Built-in 1Tb storage is quite enough for that purpose. NetStreams integrated VUDU XL with its IP-Based Distributed Audio, Video and Control system DigiLinX. So, media content (more than SD and HD 5000 movies) is streamed through the VUDU XL set top box, distributed throughout the home and controlled via DigiLinX. VUDU offers an efficient way to control its STB by IP. So, NetStreams just utilized it to build its new multi-room solution.

N800 controls iQ Intelligent Music System

ReQuest iQ
ReQuest is going to introduce Freedom, new application software for the iQ Intelligent Music System. Freedom allows to use Nokia N800 as handheld controller with full command over a multiroom iQ system, using the familiar commands, graphics, and icons of the ReQuest TS35 in-wall touch panel controller. Since many Nokia770 applications work well on N800 I suppose that it might be possible to use it as well.

I already wrote a few posts about using Nokia770/N800 as control panel for music distribution or whole house automation systems. The iQ Intelligent Music System is another good example of success of Nokia’s Internet Tablet.

The Freedom will be available in September and carry a suggested retail price of $500.
