CasaTunes Air bridges traditional wholehome audio with AirPlay

So you've made it big time, you've got it all. The car, the toys and a big house with a whole-home audio system. The thing is, as great as your CasaTunes Music Server is with its in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, the ability to integrate with the latest and greatest AirPlay devices is still missing. Well it was anyways, as the new CasaTunes Air you can stream any content from your CasaTunes Music Server to all your speakers, AirPlay or any other. Even better, the music can be on your iOS device or stored on your server -- but you can still control the whole thing from your phone or tablet. CasaTunes Air is a feature of the new CasaTunes version 4, which we can only assume is a free upgrades for existing CasaTunes Music Servers.

CASATUNES REVOLUTIONIZES MULTI-ROOM MUSIC WITH HYBRID WIRELESS SYSTEM
CasaTunes Air Plays Multiple AirPlay Streams Simultaneously

Ft. Collins, CO, July 10, 2012 – CasaTunes®, the leader in streaming multi-room music solutions, today announced CasaTunes version 4 with CasaTunes Air is both a wireless and wired flexible hybrid solution. An intelligent multi-room switch for Apple AirPlay, CasaTunes Air (www.CasaTunes.com/Air) works with existing systems to combine wired and wireless solutions into one cohesive multi-room audio experience throughout the home. This multi-room music solution can send music to Airplay speakers and receive music from Airplay-enabled devices, thus expanding the number of rooms to play music and access to an unlimited number of different music Apps and services.

"CasaTunes Air is ideal for retrofit installations and to extend existing systems where customers have maxed out their wired solution but are still looking to add music in more rooms," said David Krinker, CEO of CasaTunes. "Wireless solutions are also preferred in smaller installations where customers can grow their systems over time. CasaTunes Air combines the best of wired and wireless systems."

With CasaTunes Air (video: http://www.tinyurl.com/CasaTunesAir) customers can stream music from one or more of their iPod touch, iPhone and iPad devices, all at the same time, to any wired, wireless or combination of wired and wireless speakers in the home. Now customers have access to an unlimited selection of music services and music Apps available from the AppStore, including iHeart Radio, MOG, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody and Spotify. Best of all, customers can simply play music from their iOS devices without every having to switch between the music App and the CasaTunes App, providing a true seamless experience.

CasaTunes Air automatically discovers all AirPlay enabled devices on the network, including all AirPlay enabled speakers, AV Receivers, AppleTV and AirPort Express devices. To complete the setup, installers can use the web based CasaTunes Setup utility to assign a room name for each discovered device. Each discovered AirPlay enabled device appears just like any other wired room in the system and can even be assigned to any CasaTunes keypads and/or room group. To eliminate unwanted echoes when playing music in multiple rooms, CasaTunes Air intelligently synchronizes the wireless and wired music streams.
