Name        : nas
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 1.9.3
Release     : 7.fc19

Summary     : The Network Audio System (NAS)
Description :
In a nutshell, NAS is the audio equivalent of an X display  server.
The Network Audio System (NAS) was developed by NCD for playing,
recording, and manipulating audio data over a network.  Like the
X Window System, it uses the client/server model to separate
applications from the specific drivers that control audio input
and output devices.
Key features of the Network Audio System include:
    o  Device-independent audio over the network
    o  Lots of audio file and data formats
    o  Can store sounds in server for rapid replay
    o  Extensive mixing, separating, and manipulation of audio data
    o  Simultaneous use of audio devices by multiple applications
    o  Use by a growing number of ISVs
    o  Small size
    o  Free!  No obnoxious licensing terms
