DENVER, COLORADO - September 07, 2006 - Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, announced today the release of iWARE® - a new line of iPod® connectivity solutions for the home. The line will be unveiled for the custom installation industry for the first time at CEDIA EXPO in Denver this September.
The iWARE line includes SmartDock™, an iPod docking/charging station that integrates with existing AV systems and allows users to enjoy their iPod music libraries from anywhere in their home. SmartDock also syncs to iTunes® with the touch of a button - giving users the ability to update their iPod with new songs and podcasts without having to disconnect the iPod from their AV systems.
The iWARE line also includes the ES1 Extender System, which extends iPod connectivity to whole -house AV systems from virtually anywhere in the house via small, inconspicuous wall plate connections. The ES1 Extender System preserves the signal quality and 2 -way iPod menu navigation already set up with existing whole house AV control systems. The ES1 serves as a great companion with Niles' IntelliControl® ICS whole house audio system.
Niles' iWARE line provides installers with a flexible and cost -effective solution that allows for quick and easy integration of the iPod line into existing AV systems. And iWARE is backed by Niles, the First Name in Custom Installation, so integrators can expect smooth, natural sound and seamless integration with other AV products - long -held hallmarks of the Niles brand.
"We are excited to add the new iWARE brand to the Niles family of whole house audio solutions," said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio Corp. "The line extends the capabilities and functions of the iPod, and is a great addition to any AV setup. We are confident iWARE will provide an exciting new revenue source for our dealers."
The iWARE line will begin shipping in October 2006.
