Talking ReQuest Updates Serious Play™ Software

Ballston Spa, New York—February 26, 2008—ReQuest, the preeminent manufacturer of hard disk music servers and server-based whole-house media systems, has released a version 4.6 update to its Serious Play™ Media Manager software for the company’s full range of music servers, the N.Series, F.Series, and S.Series models, as well as the iQ Intelligent Media Server whole-house system. Serious Play 4.6 delivers significantly improved Media Manager performance, and incorporates several important new capabilities. Most prominently, it delivers an exclusive new Classical Mode and makes ReQuest’s unparalleled Freedom handheld wireless touchscreen controller available to every ReQuest system owner.

“Serious Play 4.6 adds exciting new options,” says V.P. Sales & Marketing Bill McKiegan. “The Freedom wireless controller leverages homeowners’ existing wireless networks to deliver the full power of ReQuest music management throughout the house, without expensive programming and with amazing ease of use, while Classical Mode adds yet another powerfully useful inducement to draw serious music fans to ReQuest.”

In addition to the Freedom touchscreen wireless controller, which runs on Nokia’s inexpensive N800 handheld tablet, and Classical Mode, a subscription-based system that brings classical music fans and collectors full music-server power and convenience for the very first time, Serious Play 4.6’s improvements include:

• Improved web server layout with extra columns of data
• Additional options for library/playlist sorting by Artist
• New "Sort by Last Name" option
• New, more complete player controls on web-server page
• CD Ripping feedback for existing albums

Several new features are exclusive to the iQ Intelligent Media System:

• New song-queuing options: Play Now, Play Next, Play Last, and Add-to-Playlist
• Full-keyboard GUI added to the interface of ReQuest’s TS35 touchscreen controller
• Support for three new zone tuners: Marantz ST7001, Russound ST2 AM/FM, and Rotel RT1080

Serious Play 4.6 is included with all new ReQuest server shipments and is available for download to existing installations at no charge, from ReQuest’s web site, www.request.com.
