Revolutionary wireless audio system designed for iPods, makes first public appearance.

Our goals are to bring Mac-supporting vendors and users together, to introduce the best new technology options available, and to help users and potential users learn about the many things Apple products can do for them

Soundcast Systems, a leading provider of revolutionary wireless audio transmission systems, today announced that it will publicly debut its iCast™ product at The MacGathering™ and SoHo Tech Show™ in North Hollywood, May 19-20, 2006.

Soundcast will provide attendees with an exclusive look at the iCast product in action - showcasing how consumers can easily and cost-effectively turn their iPod or music library into a wireless home theatre system.

With effortless plug and play installation, no complex programming and a simple, sleek interface, iCast forms a wireless bridge between an Apple iPod™ and a home stereo system. Unlike competing solutions available to date, the iCast effectively eliminates outside interference caused by other household devices that share the crowded 2.4GHz band, including microwave ovens and cordless phones. In addition, no network set-up expertise is required for the consumer, as the iCast’s receiver and transmitter are self-enabling and link immediately, once they are plugged in.

Now in its third year, The MacGathering offers its attendees special access to the latest hardware and software technologies for Macintosh vendors and users. The Small/Home Office (SoHo) Tech Show is a new focus this year – which aims to help attendees make cost-effective informed technology purchases for their small business. The MacGathering provides excellent seminars, networking opportunities and entertainment, including celebrity appearances.

“Our goals are to bring Mac-supporting vendors and users together, to introduce the best new technology options available, and to help users and potential users learn about the many things Apple products can do for them,” said Deborah Shadovitz, MacGathering’s Producer and Macintosh Author & Consultant. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer our attendees a look at how the iCast will allow consumers to easily transform their iPod into a complete home theater system. Its one of the best products we’ve been able to debut at MacGathering to date.”

In addition to the iCast product, Soundcast Systems has also launched AudioCast™– a system with the same functionality as iCast, but developed specifically for non-iPod devices. Both products will be available in retail stores and online in early summer 2006.

More about iCast:

The iCast transmitter comes with approved, interchangeable inserts that accommodate different iPod models. Tracking and menu controls operate while the iPod is installed in the dock and transmitting music to the receiver, and the docking unit serves as a battery charger for the iPod. The iCast receiver also duplicates several key iPod functions to allow users to operate their music players remotely from another room in the home.

In 2005, the company developed a unique 2.4GHz audio transmission technology that prevents transmitted signals from being distorted by outside interference such as cordless phones and microwave ovens. Since then, Soundcast has developed easy to install, modestly priced, high-performance wireless audio transmission systems that send tunes wirelessly from an audio source (such as a digital music player) to an audio sound system anywhere in the home. In 2006, Soundcast announced iCast and AudioCast, which play high-quality audio from digital music players throughout the home. iCast is designed to work exclusively with the iPod™, while AudioCast is compatible with non-iPod devices.
