ReQuest, the manufacturer that introduced the world to digital music-server hardware and software for home entertainment and media systems, will unveil an exciting new solution for multiroom audio at the 2006 CEDIA Expo in Denver, CO. ReQuests iQ System, the first multiroom solution to be based on music-server technology, promises true plugnplay installation, superb audio playback to as many as eight independent zones, along with the ability to stream content to up to eight more zones via a wired or wireless home network. The iQ System debuts with three key elements: The hard-disk-based iQ Intelligent Media Server, the 16-channel iQ Intelligent Multiroom Amplifier, and the modular iQ Intelligent Multiroom Tuner, as well as touchscreen, touchpanel, and wireless controller/displays. Additional models and components will join the system later this year and in the first quarter of 2007.
The iQ System is a breakthrough for distributing music throughout a home, says ReQuest VP of Sales & Marketing Bill McKiegan. It exploits the ReQuest music servers well-established quality, flexibility, and unmatched ease of use via our proprietary interface. The net result is the most satisfying multiroom listening experience available, that requires zero programming, and at a price that sets a new standard for such extensive functionality.
The iQ Intelligent Media Server
The heart and brain of the new multiroom audio system, derived from ReQuests award-winning music-server hardware and software technologies, will be offered in three initial configurations with capacities of 250, 500, or 800 uncompressed CDsor as much as 8,500 hours of no-repeat music via data-compressed coded formats. With ReQuests substantial processing power and powerful software already on board, the Intelligent Media Server eliminates the costly and confusing custom programming imposed by most multiroom systems in favor of setup that is virtually plugnplay.. Eight-source/eight-zone selection and routing deliver independent command of source, volume, bass, and treble for each zone, and any zone (or all) can choose among four fully independent stereo streams of hard-disk-based CD/music playback. Of course, the iQ Multiroom Tuner can also be routed to any or all zones. For example, the children in a home might stream music to their computers while family members in the kitchen listen to jazz through in-ceiling speakers and rock music in the game room.
The iQ Intelligent Multiroom Tuner
An important external music source will be the iQ Intelligent Multiroom Tuner, a configurable modular radio tuner incorporating AM, FM, and XM-satellite reception. The Intelligent Tuners plugnplay interface delivers full metadata display of station frequency, call letters, and artist/song/channel info from sat-radio streams on controller screens throughout the system.
The iQ Intelligent Multiroom Amplifier
The iQ Intelligent Multiroom Amplifier is a 16x80-watts design (8/4_) able to power eight stereo or 16 mono zones (or any mixture) at very high quality. The amplifier incorporates trigger-activated muting for doorbell/paging systems; RS-232 control for remote monitoring of via ReQuests ARQLink Pro communications system reporting individualized thermal, overload, DC and short-circuit protection for all zones.
Options, Options, Options Three controller options are available for the iQ System: an in-wall, 3-inch full-color display touchpanel; a 12-inch tabletop color touchscreen controller; and/or a wireless tablet with a 7-inch screen. All deliver the intuitive command of the acclaimed AudioReQuest operating system, with flexible access to browsing, searching, and managing the most extensive music collections. The music server-based architecture also incorporates the full power of ReQuests NetSync technology allowing synchronization of music collections with an additional iQ System in a second home anywhere in the world.

With the recent shift in online activity moving towards audience aggregation, syndication and self promotion, or what some call Social networking, sites like MySpace and Macromedia's new Brightcove, desktop applications like Apple iTunes and MTV's Urge, and Mobile Services like Verizon V-cast and Helio are forcing publishers to use their services because there seems to be no affordable way to compete with them. So, as the saying goes: "If you can't beat them join them." Right? Well, the creative team behind the new ShiftRadio Entertainment Inc. says "No" You don't have to join these services to compete in the marketplace. In fact, ShiftRadio is convinced that you can not only compete with these 800 pound gorillas, but that you can win. In fact, they are willing to hand their multi-million dollar New "DUI" technology to publishers daring enough to want to compete with the MySpaces and Helios of the world.
In early 2006 the founders of MySpace gave an interview where they discussed how they actually put the project together, what they knew they needed to avoid, and what they needed to provide. "As we read the interview, we went through a series of emotions because many of the focus points we wanted to bring to the table in ShiftRadio were spot-on. We also realized that we had been through similar experiences in the past of having a breakthrough and then selling-out to pundits and Venture Capitalists before bringing it to market. In nearly every case the End-Users ended up losing out, or worse, never seeing the product at all. This time it's different," says a developer from the New York Based software company.
"We are basically giving our technology away. Instead of charging publishers huge licensing fees to use our Media Center and Mobile Software, we are letting them set up the service so they can go out and make money, rather than spend money. When they make money we make money. It's a win-win situation for all involved and it's where we differ from services like MySpace and V-cast. We want our clients to make money when they use our technologies," says M.G. Johnson ShiftRadio Chief Technology Officer.
ShiftRadio provides a Private-Label Broadband Subscription Service pre-packed with the exclusive daily content and Social Networking Features that internet savvy users demand in today's online marketplace. Publishers can deliver premium broadband content to subscribers, students, tenants, residents, or club members as a premium upgrade or premium addition to any existing free membership group or paid subscription service or start a completely new subscription service.
The sign-up for new publishers is a very modest $ 248 and $ 99 a month. Publishers who require full branding and custom features can order a pro version for around $ 999.
The ShiftRadio Private-Label Subscription Service is delivered through a PC/Mac based Media Center with built-in access for Windows Mobile. It enables publishers to offer a branded PC and Windows Mobile Application package where they can manage and stream digital music and videos to any internet connected PC running the latest Windows XP or Vista, home stereo set, hardware jukebox device or capable Sony Playstation Portable, Zune, Xbox360, GP2X, PS3, Mobile Phone, Pocket PC, PDA or smartphone. ShiftRadio provides premium content for the service through partnerships with CinemaNow, Gamefly, Guba, Movielink and many others.
With ShiftRadio, publishers are able to use a basic windows PC and any web enabled mobile phone to setup and run the service. ShiftRadio makes it easy for users to get on and get started with low barrier to entry. The only thing publishers have to do is give it to the users and get paid.
ShiftRadio is an innovative software development company with offices in New York and Philadelphia. The company is currently seeking marketing and distribution partnerships for their mobile software and services. For more information, contact M.G. Johnson at 484-461-7918.
Float Gallery Presents Allen Dewey, Photographic Equivalents: An Exhibition Of Original Digital Artworks Based On Photographic Elements In Nature
Marina Del Rey, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
The exhibition is composed of a central piece that is a sculpture representing a female body wrapped in Allen's Fibonacci series of works composed at the origin from original photographs and then processed by using mathematical equations. The sculpture itself encompasses the notions of spaces and dimensions and supports precisely the intricate shapes that are defined by the Fibonacci series.
A precise work of adjustment allows the whole pieces to resolve completely.
Along the walls a series of works are presented for the first time to the public.
The first series is "Fibonacci Sketch". A Fibonacci equation is the mathematical description of the physical arrangement of seeds on a sunflower. This same shape occurs in numerous instances in nature including pinecones, branch placement on many bushes & trees, & the chambered nautilus shell.
The second series is "Dendritic Storm". These works are digital manipulations of original photos of plants, trees or a tiny cactus photographed in 4 x 5 using an enlarger lens installed backwards to enlarge the image & to limit the depth of field.
The third series is "Chaos Sketch". These are Original Paintings created in Photoshop & each image is layered upon the previous & maintains a relation among the final images.
As a whole the exhibition is exploring the roots of artistic expression through the latest digital techniques.
It is a walk in a garden that is familiar and at the same time intriguing by its dual components of 'd
