Caskeid technology is being rolled out by Pure to deliver audio content to the Jongo speakers using a combination of Bluetooth and wi-fi. The speakers and sessions are set up using the free Pure Connect App (iOS and Android).
Once a music or radio service app has been chosen, content is sent via Bluetooth to a single speaker in a group. The Caskeid technology will then seamlessly send the audio to all speakers in the group.
Pure will also be releasing a Caskeid App Developer Kit during Q1 2014 to ensure the Jongo wireless system's advanced capabilities are made fully accessible to music services.
• In addition to rolling out Caskeid technology, Pure has unveiled its latest colour accessories for the Jongo wireless system - based on global trends for 2014.
Two new colour collections that allow customers to accessorise their speakers are Neutral - featuring Goblin Blue, Comfrey, Iron and Travertine - and Vibrant, which comprises Dazzling Blue, Radiant Orchid, Mango and Cayenne.
The new speaker grilles will be available to buy from the end of January, starting from £12.99 from all leading electronic retailers and Pure.com.
