A multi-room audio/video system lets you enjoy your favorite music and movies anywhere in your home, with push-button ease. The idea really is quite simple: Take a central “rack” of music and video sources – such as digital music and movie servers, DVD players, and satellite receivers – and distribute them to speakers and TV screens throughout the home. Listen or watch in one room while others listen or watch something different in another room. Or play the same music or video throughout the house during a party.
Through integration, your multi-room system can be part of a convenient, centralized system that lets you manage lighting, heating and AC, and other functions of your home from personalized touch-screen remotes and keypads located conveniently around your home.
Systems today can take advantage of your personal music and movie library, or use an internet based streaming service such as Pandora, Rhapsody, ITunes, Netflix and more.
