Keyspan is now shipping TuneView, a wireless color LCD remote control for Apple iTunes on Macs and Windows PCs that offers complete control of music, MP3 files, podcasts, and video from up to 150 ft away.
As you press buttons on the remote, the USB transceiver queries the iTunes library each time that information is needed and transmits this data to the remote. With the color LCD screen and the ten buttons provided on the remote you can quickly and easily browse iTunes as if it were in your hands.
TuneView also works with Apple’s AirPort Express, Xitel’s Hi-Fi Link and other products that connect audio output from a PC-based music server to the audio inputs on an AV receiver or multi-room audio system.
“TuneView provides the missing piece to the PC music server puzzle,” explained Mike Ridenhour, president at Keyspan, in the press release. “There have been many ways to feed sound from iTunes to a stereo system, but there has never been an effective and affordable way to control iTunes from anywhere in your house.”
TuneView features include:
• Remote features color LCD screen and intuitive 10-button keypad
• TuneView USB transceiver plugs into USB port on a PC or Mac
• 2.4 Ghz RF connectivity between remote and transceiver
• RF signal works through walls and furniture up to 150 ft range
• iTunes content presented on the remote in familiar iPod-like menu style
• Controls iTunes music, videos, radio and podcasts
• Supports English, French, German and Spanish
TuneView has an MSRP of $149. More info here.
