Enjoy Your Favorite Artists, Albums & Radio Stations Anywhere in the Home
Rockleigh, NJ, April 16, 2012 - Crestron announced today its Internet Radio Tuner Card now supports Pandora®. Now it's easier than ever to enjoy all your favorite artists, albums or radio stations from anywhere in the home. Pandora is the leader in Internet radio, giving customers a robust medium for listening to music, news, and talk with access to thousands of online stations.
Everything you love about Pandora is now available throughout the home - thumbs up and thumbs down gestures and full meta-data feedback, including album art. No more sitting in front of the TV to control your favorite tunes or find out what song is playing. Simply download the latest firmware update from the Crestron website to enjoy Pandora anytime, anywhere in the home.
"Pandora is one of the most popular content providers customers ask to be integrated into their Crestron systems," says Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. "Pandora offers a unique and personalized Internet radio experience to listeners, and we are delighted to support it. Other products offer Pandora built-in, but none offer the convenience and ease of use in updating and navigating that Crestron provides."
Customers simply enter the name of any musical artist, song, or composer and Pandora instantly creates a "station" streaming related music for listening pleasure. They can save up to 99 stations and recall them on demand from a Crestron touch screen. Touch screen control lets users view the current song, artist, and album cover, and provides controls for creating or browsing stations and pausing, skipping, and bookmarking individual songs and artists.
"With the Crestron solution, you can hear a song on Pandora and glance at any touch screen or remote in the home to see what is playing," explains Jason Oster, Crestron Technology Manager of Software Development Platforms. "You can add a station from your smart phone or tablet and it appears on the Crestron touch screen in real-time. Now you can do more with your Pandora anywhere you want."
