| 11/01/11 - UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (11/1/11) – Custom installation home audio specialist, Integra, demonstrates its ongoing commitment to greater convergence in home entertainment with the announcement of its first application for the Android mobile platform. Integra’s Remote App for Android will allow owners to integrate wireless audio from an Android-based device into their Integra network A/V receivers and provide a range of remote control functions.
Operating over a wireless local network, the application will allow Integra owners to stream music stored on an Android device to an Integra network receiver. Music played through an Integra system gains far greater power and fidelity.
Users will be able to browse networked content without needing to view on-screen menus on a connected display. Instead, they will use the touch-screen GUI on their Android device to navigate menus and control a variety of functions, such as selecting the input source or adjusting the volume and tone. Additionally, users will be able to control output in individual zones in a multi-room distributed audio set-up. Furthermore, this new app enables any internet radio services that are supported by recent Integra receivers to be directly controlled from an Android device.
Available immediately as a free download from the Android market, the Remote App for Android will be compatible with all of Integra network A/V receivers released in 2010 and 2011.
Integra designs and manufactures premium Home Theater receivers, processors, amplifiers, and Blu-ray players that are specifically designed to meet the needs of custom audio/video systems installers. Systems integration and convergence technology protocols include RS-232, IR and on-board Ethernet for network connectivity and TCP/IP control.
