PRESS RELEASE

ReQuest Multimedia
Launches Firmware v1.9.2

Ballston Spa, New York -March 17, 2004 -ReQuest Multimedia, the industry leader in digital music servers for audio and audio -video entertainment systems, proudly announces the latest release of its AudioReQuest software, v1.9.2. ReQuest's new firmware features automatic Internet AlbumArt Lookup, Play While Encoding, New Screen Saver Options, Enhanced Feedback for control systems such as Crestron and AMX, and the latest Free dB 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 the latest 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". Vasquez adds, "I'm extremely proud of the way our team responded with what we feel are groundbreaking features for the digital music server market."
