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.
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.
