A Los Angeles, California-based music subscription service for business, SoundMachine offers over 500 curated stations with the option to import playlists from consumer services such as Spotify, allowing businesses to customize their audio to match branding and customer preferences, according to SoundMachine.
Combined with the DM NAX system, Crestron notes that both businesses and integrators will be able to use the service as seamless, streaming audio solution licensed for commercial and resimercial spaces.
Crestron also states that authorized Crestron integrators installing the DM NAX streaming audio system will also qualify for recurring monthly revenue options by joining the SoundMachine Partner Program.
“We are really excited to add SoundMachine support to the DM NAX platform. With the combination of Crestron’s DM NAX hardware portfolio and SoundMachine’s music service, our customers will now have a truly professional solution for fully licensed music playback across a variety of commercial spaces such as retail stores, restaurants, hotels, corporate offices, and beyond,” says Ekin Binal, director, product management AV Solutions at Crestron.
SoundMachine Integration Opens New Customizations for Commercial Audio Profiles
With the new integration, business owners can access SoundMachine playback controls directly from the Crestron app on Crestron devices, mobile, or tablets, or add a new zone to their listening stream for seamless transitions from one area to another.
Users can also play multiple streaming sessions throughout the business of the same SoundMachine subscription. For example, a hotel can play soft music in the hall while more upbeat music is streaming in the gym, while paying only for one SoundMachine license.
Users can even mark favorite stations from their Crestron interface to have them added as a preset for certain zones of their establishment so that music content is readily available.
Schedules can also be created using Crestron enabling program-specific content to play at set times with no manual intervention.
“We’re thrilled to be integrating with Crestron DM NAX to offer an unparalleled audio solution for businesses of all sizes,” says Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine.
“Our collaboration with Crestron will enable us to bring high-quality audio experiences to more businesses and provide them with a reliable and convenient way to manage their audio and music settings alongside other room automation systems.”
