Kensington launches market’s fastest FM Transmitter for finding best station to play iPod™ music
Kensington, the mobile computer accessories company, has launched the QuickSeek FM transmitter, a portable FM transmitter that finds the best frequency for playing music within seconds. It transmits music stored on any iPod to a car radio or radio on a home stereo system, enabling the user to share their digital music collection with friends.
Kensington’s QuickSeek™ technology scans the entire radio spectrum (88.1 - 107.9 MHz) to find the optimal FM signal to transmit to in less than six seconds, making tuning an iPod to a radio easier than ever. It has three presets, enabling the user to store stations that are regularly available so they can be found instantly. The device’s bright display screen also helps make it easy to use.
When the QuickSeek FM Transmitter is being used in the car, it can charge the iPod from the cigarette lighter while it plays the music through the car radio. The charger can then be detached, making the transmitter portable, so that it can transmit the music to any FM radio within range.
“You can go from the car to home stereo within seconds with this new FM transmitter,” said Karen Hicks, European product manager for Kensington’s Play It range. “While it’s only a tiny device, the superior technology it uses transmits the sound really clearly, and it finds the best station faster than any other transmitters on the market.”
The FM transmitter uses patented ClearFM™ technology from Aerielle to reduce static noise and enhance audio quality. It works with all full-size clickwheel iPods, including the iPod nano, and its sleek black casing ensures it complements the latest models.
Kensington’s QuickSeek Portable FM Transmitter retails at £xx and is available from xx.
