Ballston Spa, New York–July 6, 2004–ReQuest Multimedia, the industry leader in digital music servers for audio and audio-video entertainment systems, announces the shipment of its 300 th VideoReQuest, Digital Video Controller.
The VideoReQuest which made its debut at CES 2004, and began shipping late April, is the most recent addition to the award-winning line of products by ReQuest Multimedia. According to Joseph Gersuk, CEO of ReQuest, “We are delighted with the initial customer response to our first product in the home theatre market. Our engineering and product marketing team has now created a high quality video product to complement our successful line of audio products.”
The VideoReQuest is designed to manage and store collections of up to as many as 1600 DVDs by assuming complete command of one or more Sony DVP-CX777ES DVD changers. The versatile VideoReQuest provides the ability to organize and sort a DVD collection onscreen by Title, Actors, Directors, Genres and Ratings, completely simplifying the process of locating specific DVDs further showcasing its “user-friendly” interface. This can be done using the supplied remote control or by Crestron and AMX touch panels and other control systems.
According to Hank Fink, Director of Worldwide Sales, “Although the VideoReQuest offers simple installation, we highly recommend the services of a certified custom installation professional who is authorized and trained by ReQuest Multimedia.” Continuing he said, “An installer can integrate the VideoReQuest into a new or existing networked home theater system while providing training and support to the homeowner.”
Control of the VideoReQuest is easily performed by Crestron and AMX with pre-made integration modules which are written and supported in-house by ReQuest. The powerful two-way protocol allows dealers to up-sell their clients to higher end and more profitable control systems.
ReQuest understands its dealers require the highest quality products for their clients. Thus, the VideoReQuest was designed with this in mind, requiring the use of an external switch instead of an internal switch, which can significantly degrade the quality of the video output of the clients DVDs. Rack ears are standard issue with every VideoReQuest.
Through the required internet connection, the VideoReQuest is able to identify and retrieve information for all the DVDs in a collection through the free 50,000 title online AMG database.
