DTS Play-Fi Partners With SoundMachine Subscription-Based Service To Bring Music To Businesses

July 24 2018, 04:00
DTS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation, announced a partnership between DTS Play-Fi and SoundMachine’s subscription-based service. The partnership gives business owners the ability to play commercial background music in their stores, restaurants, hotels, spas, or other locations through DTS Play-Fi-enabled products. Commercial users will receive a free 30-day trial through the DTS Play-Fi app.

With offices in Los Angeles and Barcelona, SoundMachine is a music service company serving businesses around the world. Among its customers are major fashion, hotel, restaurant, and coffee shop chains, as well as several small businesses. Customers can access music content across multiple platforms including a dedicated iOS app, their own music player, as well as a range of wireless speakers. SoundMachine partners include major telecom companies, such as Vodafone, as well as thousands of AV installers. 

SoundMachine features more than 250 curated music stations and the ability to mix and schedule music for the perfect background sound directly through the DTS Play-Fi app. Features include curated music selection with hundreds of stations regularly updated and comprehensive playlists of hand selected music, covering a wide variety of genres, as well as the possibility to create custom music stations, using an algorithmically generated artist based station by simply entering an artist name or song from a catalog of over 35 million tracks.

Users of the service can also schedule music for the perfect atmosphere throughout the day, whether it's upbeat music for the busy hours or mellow tunes for more relaxed moments. And for users with multiple locations, it is possible to link them to one account and manage music content from one interface. Playing music in a business environment requires a set of licenses that SoundMachine covers.

"We are excited to be partnering with SoundMachine to offer commercial DTS Play-Fi customers a licensing solution for playing music in their business locations,” says Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. “With hundreds of DTS Play-Fi products to outfit their space, combined with SoundMachine’s full-featured service and the ability to control everything through the DTS Play-Fi app, creating the perfect sound environment for a business has never been easier.”

“We are always looking to ease the lives of our business customers, and the partnership with DTS is a big step in that direction,” says Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine. “By having our platform included in the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem, we are able to cater to those small and large businesses that are looking to use their preferred hardware line while being legally protected in a commercial environment.”

The DTS Play-Fi ecosystem of whole-home wireless audio solutions currently features more than 200 interoperable speakers, soundbars, set-top boxes, and A/V receivers from brands like Aerix, Anthem, Arcam, Definitive Technology, DISH TV, Elite, Integra, Fusion Research, Klipsch, MartinLogan, McIntosh, Onkyo, Paradigm, Phorus, Pioneer, Polk Audio, Rotel, Sonus faber, Soundcast, SVS Sound, THIEL Audio and Wren Sound.
