CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DTS, a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq:XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce 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.
SoundMachine features more than 250 curated music stations and the ability to mix and schedule music for the perfect sound directly through the DTS Play-Fi app. Features include:
- Curated Music Selection – Hundreds of stations regularly updated and comprehensive playlists of hand selected music, covering a wide variety of genres.
- Custom Music Stations – Easily create an algorithmically generated artist based station by simply entering an artist name or song from a catalog of over 35 million tracks.
- Day Parting – Schedule your music for the perfect atmosphere throughout the day, whether it's upbeat music for the busy hours or mellow tunes for more relaxed moments.
- Multiple Locations – If you own more than one establishment, you can link them to your account and manage their music content from one interface.
- All Licenses Included – Playing music in a business environment requires a set of licenses that SoundMachine covers. Using unlicensed music services can potentially lead to big fines.
