RTI Expands Music Streaming Solutions With MS-1 Streamer

The MS-1 Music Streamer adds a single stream solution to the RTI Music family

BARCELONA, Spain — May 10, 2022 — Leading control and automation manufacturer RTI has expanded its family of music control solutions with the new MS-1 Music Streamer. The MS-1 provides integrators with a single-stream solution fully integrated with RTI control systems in residential or commercial settings. It can also add a stream to an existing RTI Music system. Like the award-winning three-stream MS-3, the MS-1 seamlessly delivers high-resolution audio (24bit/192kHz) from the most popular streaming music services or from a local NAS to any room with the touch of a button.

“Music is a touchpoint of life, whether you’re at home or at a business, and we want to make it easy and enjoyable to access music playlists and streaming services from within the RTI control experience,” said Neal Ellsworth, RTI Director of Product Management. “The MS-1 delivers a single stream option with all the integrator and user benefits of the RTI Music system. Together, the MS-1 and the three-stream MS-3 give the integrator options to cost-effectively get the right number of streams into a project.”

The RTI MS-1 Music Streamer can connect to popular streaming services or a client’s personal music collection on a local NAS drive or computer with lossless audio (FLAC and ALAC) supported. Integrated with RTI control and RTI Music, users can access playlists and search favorite songs, artists, and albums on their preferred services, all within the RTI control app. AirPlay enables any user — even a guest — with Apple Music to play from their chosen platform on any Apple device. To build a queue of songs on the fly, the Music Queue feature enables “play now,” “play later,” or “play soon.” Favorites playlists can integrate songs from multiple services and local devices.

RTI Music integrates with a variety of streaming services, including Pandora, Spotify, SiriusXM, iHeart, TuneIn, and an AirPlay option that enables Apple Music and Amazon Music. Newly added services include BBC Sounds and Qobuz. It also integrates with commercial music streaming service providers SiriusXM For Business as well as SoundMachine, with which RTI recently partnered. The partnership provides integrators installing the RTI Music streaming audio system with recurring monthly revenue options featuring SoundMachine’s fully licensed, cloud-based music service for businesses. Together as a service, this solution enables RTI dealers to offer and monetize fully licensed music services (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, RE-SOUND and Global Music Rights) in restaurants, bars, hotels, and other commercial applications.

The MS-1 will ship in early June to distributors and integrators worldwide. More information about RTI Music and the MS-1 is available at www.rticontrol.com/rti-music.
