Four new “widgets” -- small, interactive software programs that run on the iQ Intelligent Media Server from ReQuest Inc., Ballston Spa, N.Y., -- automatically access the Internet to provide information throughout the home. These free programs deliver stock, weather, webcam, and calendar information to the iQ’s touchscreen system-controllers, including the freestanding 15-inch TS.15 and the in-wall, 3.5-inch TS.35. Widgets can be viewed and controlled from any room or zone equipped with a ReQuest touchscreen, tabletop touchscreen controller, and computer. The iQ system delivers audiophile quality music to as many as eight rooms or zones from its internal hard disk-based music server and associated sources. WebCam (available via the 15-inch TS.15 Touchscreen only) lets iQ owners add up to six individually named webcams. Any publicly available webcam also can be integrated into the display.
