RTI intros native audio streaming to customers

Control and automation company, RTI has launched the new RTI Music and MS-3 Music Streamer designed to give customers native control of audio streaming through any RTI control system.

RTI Music is an entirely seamless control experience, eliminating the need to exit the control app to search for music and access a playlist, for example. Homeowners can now use RTI Music to stream hi-res audio into any room from their favourite platform or from their local NAS by tapping on a touch panel, remote or mobile device.

RTI Music supports three concurrent streams from sources including Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, SiriusXM, SiriusXM for Business, SoundMachine, and TuneIn. The AirPlay interface enables streaming from Apple Music and Amazon Music. The Music Queue features play now, play later, and play soon options to build an on-the-fly song queue, while the Favourites playlists integrate songs from multiple services and local devices.

Operating natively within the RTI control system, RTI Music makes it easy to access playlists and search favourite songs, artists, and albums on favourite services and then direct the music to the room or rooms of choice. A music collection on a local NAS drive or computer can be accessed and fully integrated with support for lossless audio (FLAC and ALAC) formats.

Easy to install, the RTI Integration Designer programming platform will automatically discover the MS-3 when connected. The configuration utility makes it simple to set up homeowners’ music accounts. The 1U chassis MS-3 pairs with RTI audio distribution systems for seamless audio throughout the home.
