Indianapolis, IN–Escient has teamed up with Get Digital to offer retailers and dealers a quick way to upload their clients CD collections into an Escient Fireball music server.
The new value-added QuickFire Music Loading Service from Get Digital combines CD ripping, encoding, and FireBall-loading with accurate album and artist information provided by Get Digitals DataFix process. The service also provides users with extras such as a three-ring bound color catalog of their CD collection and MP3 library backup on DVD-Rs.
“Escient is committed to supporting our valued retailers and custom installation partners in every way possible,” said Escient VP and general manager Bill Carson. “By teaming with Get Digital for the QuickFire CD Loading Service, were providing dealers the opportunity to enhance the experience of FireBall music management for their clients. Many custom installers pre-load their clients CD collections themselves. Using QuikFire provides a turnkey encoding solution that saves time and adds great value for FireBall customers.”
All dealers and installers of Escient FireBall systems will be offered the opportunity to participate in the QuickFire Music Loading Service program. According to Escient, there are multiple dealer options with QuickFire: most often, when a FireBall purchaser decides to join the service, the dealer or installer sends the clients CD collection to the Escient QuikFire Encoding Center (using insured and pre-paid shipping containers provided). The Clients CD library is loaded into the FireBall in MP3 format (320k, 192k, 160k, 128k) or in FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) format. The FireBall system and CD collection is then shipped back to the dealer, ready for use.
As part of the service, all of the clients MP3s are permanently archived on DVD-R discs and returned in a color printed music catalog containing Artist, Title, Track and Cover Art of the clients library. There are two levels of QuickFire service available. Standard QuikFire Service includes a 5-day library encode with all ground transportation, insurance, and materials. Platinum QuikFire Service enhances Standard Service by offering 2-day library encode and complete next day air shipping. Both service offerings are available starting at 200 discs with pricing in 100 disc increments.
