Netstreams IP-Based 'Streaming Music Manager' built on the DigiFi™ platform to be showcased at 2007 International CES
London UK - January 4, 2006 - Digital Fidelity Licensee, NetStreams®, the global leader in networked IP -Based entertainment products, announced The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) have selected NetStreams' Streaming Music Manager for a 2007 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award. A panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and journalists select winners of this award, given annually.
NetStreams' Streaming Music Manager is powered by the DigiFi™ platform under license from Digital Fidelity, and is a key part of the DigiLinX™ Multi -Room Entertainment and Control system. The Streaming Music Manager automatically finds and indexes all music files located on any connected or networked device for example computer, MP3 player, audio server and lets users select and play any track without having to know where the file is stored.
The Streaming Music Manager uses the DigiFi™ platform to create a dynamic database of digital audio by constantly monitoring and indexing music files available in the home, including music on devices connected via USB. When someone chooses to listen to a song, the system finds and plays the file. Multiple streams from all these sources can be created and played out simultaneously and the Streaming Music Manager also allows six different music selections to play simultaneously in different rooms via DigiLinX™.
"Netstreams' are at the cutting edge of IP audio distribution, and we are delighted that they have been selected for this award" commented Matthew Simmons, Commercial Director of Digital Fidelity; "the Netstreams Streaming Music Manager genuinely enhances and simplifies the home entertainment experience".
Digital Fidelity are, by appointment only, showing all their full complement of digital content management platforms including the award -winning Netstreams Streaming Music Manager at the Luxor Hotel, 900 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89119.
NetStreams' Streaming Music Manager will be displayed at the CES 2007 Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Booth #68747.
International CES 2007, runs January 8 -11, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
About Digital Fidelity
Headquartered in London, Digital Fidelity is a manufacturing and software consultancy that specialises in supplying flexible, efficient, and sophisticated platform solutions to international audio -visual manufacturers for the creation of products that store, control and playback digital content. Backed by substantial private investment and in partnership with leading hardware and software providers, Digital Fidelity focuses on four key insights in the digital content space:
That there is a clear need for silent, powerful and 'sexy' products that will be 'at home in the home'; not dressed -up PCs but true Consumer Electronics products. Secondly that the consumer's digital content is rarely stored neatly in one place, but may be located on any number of disparate devices - portable and fixed. Thirdly, to control this content, there is a corresponding need for a suite of usable interfaces that are fast, intuitive and interactive which enthuse the user to play and manage otherwise inaccessible music and video. Lastly, manufacturers need highly flexible platforms that empower them to create truly competitive products that are consistent with existing ranges, are capable of reflecting sophisticated brand values.
Digital Fidelity supports these key principles by continuing to innovate and develop integrated hardware/software packages based on their acclaimed DigiFi™ platform. DigiFiTM also integrates seamlessly with most popular multi -room systems. Digital Fidelity are members of the CEA.
