Local storage of music
The music is stored locally so you can guarantee your customers an uninterrupted music experience. All music will be downloaded automatically by the OnAir Store player. No manual interaction is required, neither from you nor from your client.
Automated or manual mode
The OnAir Store player can be operated in either automated or manual mode.
In automated mode the OnAir Store player will play the predefined playlists that are generated by the OnAir Store back-end software. Together with your customer you choose the music that fits your customers formula. Promo’s or commercials can be inserted as well.
The playlists will be downloaded by the OnAir Store player and the personel in the shop cannot influence the music. This mode is mostly used for chains where the music will be carefully chosen and have to fit into the customers’s formula.
In manual mode the personel in the store can chose their own music. They can choose from a set of predefined playlists but are also able to play a single item (for example a birthday song). It is also possible to do inserts (like a commercial or a promo). Playlists can be scheduled with the calendar function so tghey will be loaded automatically at predefined times. Every time a playlist is loaded the playlist will be shuffled automatically.
