Olive unveils IP-based control for its music server line. NAS support added.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 23rd, 2006 - Olive Media Products, Inc., a developer of innovative digital audio systems, today announced Olive RONDO, a new IP-based control interface for its complete music server line. Olive's music centers are now controllable via any PDA, PC, or touch-panel that supports the IP protocol.
Olive's new control interface, which can be launched from any standard web browser, allows users to manage the playback (play, pause, skip, stop) of their music, as well as view important music information such as artist, album, and title. In addition, users can create playlists, edit the metadata of their music, and configure the settings of their music center. Developed mainly as a remote control application, the new interface is available with an optimized display output for portable devices such as PDAs, internet tablets, and IP-capable remote controls.
Additional features of the new software:
* The integration of a UPnP/AV client module allows Olive's music servers to stream music from a UPnP/AV server, e.g. networked attached storage.
* In addition to WEP encryption, Olive's music centers now support the WPA standard, for the latest in wireless network security.
Olive's new software update is available for free to all existing customers, and is shipped with the current line of Olive music servers.
