StoreStreams to Offer Turnkey In-Store Radio to Businesses

StoreStreams to Offer Turnkey In-Store Radio to Businesses

Integrated solution removes the headaches of procuring content and licensing, while simplifying deployments and operation through a fully networked system

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, February 24, 2015 — The in-store radio architecture is typically a patchwork of systems and components from  different sources to deliver music and advertising to businesses, with challenging scenarios for licensing music and audio content. The formation of StoreStreams aims to simplify the launch and management of a multi-site in-store radio system, cleanly integrating IT network infrastructure with audio players—and providing the content, licensing and user interface to ensure a unified and profitable service.

StoreStreams brings together the music catalog and network intelligence of XYZ Stream Hosting, a specialist in live, multiplatform content delivery; with end point hardware supplied through LineQ, a distributor specializing in networked AV equipment. LineQ will supply Ecler Sound amplifiers, Cornered Sound loudspeakers and media players from Barix, an IP audio pioneer with hundreds of thousands of hardware players in deployment worldwide. Furthermore, the service operates on a contract-free, month-to-month basis for maximum operational flexibility.

The StoreStreams service will focus specifically on streaming content to network operators and retail businesses that want a wide selection of music channels, without the headaches of procuring and licensing content. A clean and intuitive interface will allow curators and program managers to build playlists and manage content with ease. Included within the management application is the ability to structure and schedule ad placement, station ID’s and promotional material. For resellers and integrators, the complete integrated package minimizes components and eliminates installation headaches, further accelerating deployments.

Perhaps above all, the reliability of the cloud-based, redundant streaming architecture will ensure a live, branded streaming service with high availability for networks of any scale—ensuring a dynamic, high-quality and uninterrupted in-store radio experience.

“Utilizing 21 data centers, StoreStreams serves retail businesses nationwide with hyper-regionalized content and customized services directly from the data center closest to each business location,” said Charles Odom, vice president of marketing, StoreStreams. “And through our multichannel music library and licensing agreements, our customers will have access to the most up-to-date content with full legality.”

Will Schmidt, vice president of sales for LineQ, adds that packaging the content and licensing into an integrated solution with streaming, content management, and end point tools also makes StoreStreams an ideal platform for content curators. By including content and licensing, curators can manage audio programming for retail businesses without getting involved in the legal aspects of the in-store media business.

“By aligning everything under one management system and offering comfortable month-to-month contracts, StoreStreams and LineQ have a recipe for anyone to succeed at in-store radio,” said Schmidt, adding that the entire solution is engineered to deliver an absorbing retail customer experience. “The placement of the servers and optimization of end points for consistency in live streaming is all designed to provide superior performance. This is a service that is built to satisfy customers for the long haul.”

LineQ is currently offering six months of free service with the purchase of an endpoint device, such as the Barix Exstreamer—the device that receives, decodes and plays out audio content inside stores. The complete solution will be available by end of February.

PEER 1 Rolls Out EMC Atmos Globally Distributed Cloud Storage for Innovative Storage-as-a-Service

EMC Atmos Speeds Time to Market; Provides Highly Available, Flexible, and Cost-Efficient Self-Service Cloud Storage

HOPKINTON, Mass., July 18, 2011

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced that PEER 1 Hosting, one of the top hosting providers in the world with 12,000 customers, has deployed EMC® Atmos™ globally distributed cloud storage as the foundation of its CloudOne Storage, a self-service, metered storage solution. Powered by EMC Atmos, which provides powerful and efficient management of globally distributed cloud storage and big data environments, PEER 1’s CloudOne storage provides customers with a highly flexible, cost-efficient and reliable storage-as-a-service solution for content and data storage, backup and archiving, off-loading of large media objects and virtually any other data requirement.

Dax Moreno, General Manager of ServerBeach, PEER 1 Hosting’s dedicated server division, said, “We did an exhaustive evaluation of eight cloud providers, but EMC was the only one that offered a completely integrated software and hardware cloud storage solution. We were also impressed with EMC’s big R&D investments in cloud. We avoided having to start from scratch and build our own solution or buy pieces from different vendors. So we were able to go to market much faster by deploying EMC Atmos’ robust and proven cloud storage.”

With headquarters in Vancouver and 17 data centers worldwide, PEER 1 Hosting’s deployment of EMC Atmos has provided them with the ability to scale to unlimited capacities. The solution incorporates key features of EMC Atmos software, including GeoProtect for advanced data protection, Atmos Web Service APIs for integrating customers’ Internet-based applications with CloudOne Storage, and multi-tenancy to enable PEER 1 Hosting to securely and efficiently serve multiple applications from a single cloud infrastructure.

John Hamner, Product Manager, PEER 1 Hosting said, “Atmos has a lot of built-in flexibility because we can easily set different policies to match the different cost and availability requirements of our cloud storage customers. We want to make sure that CloudOne Storage provides not just raw storage but also the high availability our customers demand. Additionally, with Atmos’ GeoProtect, we get sophisticated data protection that is designed specifically for cloud environments.”

One of PEER 1 Hosting’s objectives is to make sign up and access to CloudOne easy. “Our go-to-market strategy is to make CloudOne Storage just three clicks away from any customer that wants it,” stated Hamner. “EMC Atmos helped us reach that goal and in addition, using the new Atmos APIs, we are able to customize the fit for our customer’s offerings and tap into a number of different markets such as streaming media or desktop backups.”

One such customer is XYZMP3.com, which distributes digital music and video to consumers through a variety of devices such as game systems, digital video recorders, smart phones and PCs.

Roland DeLeon, CEO of XYZMP3.com, explained, “By leveraging the Atmos API, we have our digital media streaming application tightly integrated with CloudOne Storage. This has really accelerated our go-to-market strategy because artists, producers and media outlets can use our offering to more rapidly distribute their creative music and video content across a wide variety of channels.”

“Instead of simply storing our customers’ data,” Moreno adds, “we’re able to cache the popular content on servers, use site accelerators to distribute it a lot quicker, and provide faster page loads and response times. As higher-quality video and music becomes more pervasive on the Web, our cloud storage offering is expanding its role as a huge market enabler for our customers.”
