Enhanced Audio Experiences with RCA’s Smart Soundbar

December 24 2018, 00:15
At CES 2019, Voxtok, the Sound division of entertainment software platform Netgem, will be showing Music Avenue, a fully personalized audio service designed for TV, which operates through the Smart Soundbar of iconic brand Radio Corporation of America (RCA). Combining the two best-selling speaker categories currently in the market, the RCA Smart Soundbar supports Amazon Alexa voice interactions and will be unveiled also at the annual Las Vegas consumer electronics show.

Music Avenue, designed for TV and available on mobile devices, is a comprehensive and simple-to-use audio service that brings together personalized music video channels, user playlists, unlimited music through Napster, information and news about artists, albums releases, concerts, and even vinyl record delivery. The service is also connected to a user’s multiroom environment.

Suggestions for music video channels are inspired by the users musical taste and playlists. Music Avenue also recommends content discovery, drawing from a rich catalog of music that spans all genres and eras. “Music Avenue offers an entirely personalized and original service by creating an easy connection between the music and video world, and with a subtle integration between digital and physical content”, explains Joel Reboul, General Manager and founder of Voxtok. “Through RCA’s Smart Soundbar, Music Avenue with the Napster platform built-in delivers great music and an absolutely unique entertainment solution!”

“The RCA brand helped build the broadcasting and radio industry, serving music artists and households with everything ranging from recording technologies to the first in-home radios and consumer electronics. The Smart Soundbar is the result of years of innovation in the digital industry,” says Claire Villeneuve, head of Trademark Licensing for Technicolor (Owner of RCA Brand).

RCA’s Smart SoundBar is the first device to feature the Music Avenue suite. Smart SoundBar is a multi-room soundbar that incorporates TV, Video and Music into one. Smart Soundbar also features Alexa, giving users the ability to control entertainment, smart home devices and more using just their voice. In addition to its extensive music capabilities thanks to Music Avenue, RCA’s Smart soundbar also provides access to a wide range of video content. For instance, netgem.tv gives UK users a complete suite of programs that includes: free national channels and their associated interactive services (in this case FreeviewPlay), premium channels, as well as popular international streaming video services. Everything is easily accessible by voice with Alexa or through a TV remote control or the smartphone application.

There will be a preview presentation of the Music Avenue service at CES 2019 (Suite Netgem 29-320 Venetian), as well as of the RCA Smart SoundBar distributed in Europe, at Booth of RCA (Central Hall, Booth B14706), Amazon and Voxtok (Suite Netgem 29-320). Music Avenue plans the first deployments in Europe the second quarter of 2019.
