CEDIA 2006: iHome Multi-Center Loves DRM

The Audio Design Associates' iHome Multi-Center is part music storage device, part media PC, part IP control server. Two 400gb RAID drives can hold music and hi-def video, and 750gb upgrades are on the horizon. The product's claim to fame, however, is its ability to remotely playback Apple AAC DRM-protected music from a PC, tablet or PDA through an Internet browser flash interface. ADA stands firm that they are the only company with this streaming technology. Not enough audio sharing? Try streaming Sirius, XM, standard and HD radio too.

It's all part of the glorious, buy it once and play it everywhere philosophy. Media creators should embrace this idea - it's much better than the buy it never alternatives.
