Buena Park, Calif. - Yamaha has upgraded its free AV Controller app to enable music streaming over Wi-Fi networks from iOS and Android mobile devices to the company's networked A/V receivers.
Like its predecessor, the AV Controller App 2.0 turns Apple and Android handheld devices into an RF remote that controls such A/V receiver functions as source switching, AM/FM tuning, accessing networked content, engaging DSP and modes, adjusting volume, and on/off. Also like before, the app enables users to distribute music to multiple rooms.
With the free app, president Tom Sumner told TWICE, one user can stream from an iPad, and the song metadata and album cover can appear on another user's Android tablet.
The new app requires Android OS 2.1 or iOS 4.2 or higher, a wireless local a local area network, and a networked Yamaha receiver.
Upon downloading the app, users can run a demo to full understand its features.
