ReQuest Multimedia Launches Firmware v1.9.2  Print E-mail

Request Multimedia has announced the latest release of its AudioReQuest software v1.9.2. ReQuest's new firmware features automatic Internet AlbumArt Loookup, Play While Encoding, New Screen Saver Options, Enhanced Feedback for control systems such as Crestron and AMX, and a database containing over 1,000,000 albums. Also, included are updates for JavaRemote 4.5 Windows and Macintosh Remote Software, ARQPocket 2.0 PocketPC software, and Crestron modules and panel designs.

Automatic Internet AlbumArt Lookup is one of the many advanced features in Firmware v1.9.2. An AudioReQuest can now automatically look up Album Art when properly configured to connect to the Internet. Simply drop a CD into the encoding tray and the internet-enabled AudioReQuest music server simultaneously looks up both the text information and corresponding cover art for the album. The new JavaRemote 4.5 and ARQPocket 2.0 both display AlbumArt over IP.

Play While Encoding is another advancement included in Firmware v1.9.2. As the CD is being encoded, the user can continue to play selected music. Customers can now encode music to their collection as they listen to other songs already encoded to their collection. Additionally, the New Screen Saver options give customers the ability to use Album Art as Screen Savers or they can upload digital pictures for a customized slide-show while listening to music.

Steve Vasquez, Co-Founder of ReQuest Multimedia, says, “v1.9.2 represents the best of what ReQuest has to offer. These added features are based on feedback received from our substantial dealer base”.

Effective immediately, all AudioReQuest models will be shipped with the new software update. Existing units can be updated online or via a CD.
