Kensington Announces the LiquidFM Family of FM Transmitters

  • September 17, 2007

An Array of New Products, a Solution to Meet Every Music Lover’s Needs

Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today announced an entire family of FM transmitters, which enable the users of iPods and other MP3 players to enjoy high-quality audio in their cars. The new LiquidFM™ product line, a complete line refresh of FM transmitters, features Kensington’s ClearFM™ technology for crisp, clear sound and is combined with the unique, smart features demanded by music-loving consumers.

The LiquidFM family is the next generation of FM transmitters from Kensington, which earlier this year launched the market-leading QuickSeek FM Transmitter, designed to eliminate the time-consuming tuning often needed to play an iPod through a car stereo. “As a result of our unique Smart Made Simple™ approach to product development, we conduct in-depth consumer research, so we know what consumers want most. We also understand their pain points,” explained Kevin Ngo, Global Product Manager for Kensington. Based on the research findings, the LiquidFM line includes unique features such as:

  • ClearFM technology for enhanced audio quality
  • QuickSeek technology for finding the clearest station in seconds
  • A unique RDS capability that displays the song and artist names on a car’s stereo screen
  • Charging capabilities through a USB connection
  • Connectors that work with iPod or MP3 players in a protective case

“The LiquidFM line provides enhanced functionality and greater choices,” Ngo said. “These new products make great gifts, and they will be widely available for the holiday shopper.” He added that Kensington strives to maintain compatibility with leading-edge technologies delivering the best possible experience to the consumer. As a result, the new LiquidFM for iPod line is compatible with the newly introduced iPod Nano, iPod Classic and iPod Touch and Kensington FM transmitters are consistently rated as the highest-quality FM transmitters on the market1.

The LiquidFM family consists of two FM transmitters made for the iPod and two FM transmitters designed for use with MP3 players and MP3-enabled cell phones. “Most of the top-selling cell phones are now MP3-enabled,” Ngo said. “It’s a growing market, and, as a consumer needs-driven brand, Kensington is now including a cell phone adapter with its transmitters. And we are the only manufacturer to do so!”
