ReQuest Adds Ethernet Connactivity to 15 -inch Touchscreen

ReQuest, the established leader in hard disk-based music servers and server-based whole-house media systems, will introduce a new touchscreen control at the 2007 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado.

Ballston Spa, New York -August 28, 2007 - ReQuest, the established leader in hard disk -based music servers and server -based whole -house media systems, will introduce a new touchscreen control at the 2007 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado. The new Network Touchscreen Client (NTC) works with ReQuest's TS.15 full -size color touchscreen controller from any location on a home Ethernet network, without unwieldy long cables and/or VGA/USB extenders.


The Network Touchscreen Client is a slim, compact, hardware solution designed to be mounted to the back of a free -standing TS.15 touchscreen, or it can be tucked away in a nearby cabinet or shelving unit. The NTC connects to the touchscreen via USB and VGA cables, while its RJ -45 connector accepts conventional, thin, Ethernet cable linking it to the home network. Alternately, a wireless home network can be utilized via a "gaming bridge," a wireless adapter widely available from manufacturers such as dLink, Linksys, and Netgear, to deliver full TS.15 functionality via WiFi 802.11b/g wireless connection. As many as eight TS.15/Network Touchscreen Client combos, communicating to the home system via wired or wireless/bridge connections, can be used on a single ReQuest iQ System, Audio or Video ReQuest.

Availability: September 2007
Suggested Retail Price: TS.15 is $1,500 and NTC is $1,000.
