Fusion Research has added the commercial-based streaming music service SoundMachine to its line of music servers. This service will show up as an automatic update on any Summit-based Fusion music server’s configuration utility.
The service will be available through Fusion’s partner control companies including Crestron, Control4, RTI, Elan, URC, Niles, Speakercraft, Compass Controls, and some Savant systems. Single-source servers with Burr-Brown DACs start at $499 MSRP and multiple source units start at $799 and can be stacked to increase the number of discrete streams available in a project. This includes the ability to stream multiple discrete licensed music streams in one location.
“This has been a very important addition to our lineupand opens the commercial music market to us,” said Fusion Research vice president of sales Ingo Schmoldt. “Adding SoundMachine, with its vast selection of music and playlists, multi-location management, and a unique revenue-generation model for integrators made it our number-choice for a commercially licensed music service.”
SoundMachine is a highly specialized and fully licensed music platform for businesses, offering both set stations and custom playlists for companies that require a higher degree of personalization with their music content. The company relies heavily on custom installers to promote the service, and they offer a partner program with a recurring revenue incentive.
“The custom integration market is an extremely important growth channel for us,” said Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine. “Fusion was the perfect partner to help us in this key market. By having our service included in Fusion’s music servers, we are immediately available to be used in most of the leading automation systems.”
