Our PLAYBOX Professional has been developed in close collaboration with the gastronomy sector with the aim of creating an all-round entertainment system. It can manage and play music, video and karaoke files in various formats. Special entertainment options, such as SMS Chat, SMS Queries, e-mail, DVD, TV, radio and more than a dozen games have been combined and can be accessed using a colourful and particularly easy to operate 3D user interface.
The incorporation of promotional image, sound and video elements is also possible, and a promotional image editor is provided. The system is suitable for pubs, cafes, clubs, discotheques, kiosks and other situations in which the provision of a customer entertainment option is desired.
Playback in various multimedia formats
In addition to audio files, the system can also play video and karaoke files.
Information on the various files is stored in a database and files can thus be
found within seconds. There are more than 20 different search options.
The special PLAYBOX tag header saves information on the files. This means that
titles can be readily imported into the database and distributed to other
PLAYBOX users without loss of information.
The in-built scheduler means that play lists and other functions (e.g. computer
power-down) can be planned and managed. Playlists and volume can be quickly
and easily adjusted using the clearly arranged menus or the touchscreen.
Using the karaoke editor supplied, you can generate your own karaoke files from
existing music files within minutes.
