Escient showed off the new FireBall ZP-1 Zone player providing incremental audio zones for FireBall music servers. The ZP-1 works by providing each room or "zone" in the home, with an independent on-screen TV user interface, full remote control capabilities, and digital audio music streams when networked with an Escient FireBall Music Server (including the free FireBall-PC software running on a Mac or Windows computer).

Escient's MX Series also includes exciting new software features including: a "jukebox" play mode that allows you to queue up song selections while you are listening to another song, AAC audio decoding, new user interface themes, international support for five different languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian), improved web interfaces, a new artist music guide view, a new hierarchical music guide view, and new third-party support modules for Crestron, AMX, RTI, and Philips remote control systems. The Fireball ZP-1 Zone player will retail for $499 and will be available November 2006. For more information please visit www.escient.com .
