Duluth, GA (June 11, 2008)–Wegener Corporation is providing satellite media distribution, media players and content management technology for Muzak’s new Encompass LE2 digital music delivery service.
Muzak’s new Encompass LE2 service combines satellite media delivery with an online management system, and is planned for deployment to locations throughout the United States.
“Business owners and managers, especially in small business settings, can’t always be at work,” said Bob Finigan, vice president of product and marketing for Muzak. “And now you don’t have to be on-site to get the most from your music and messaging. Encompass LE2 allows users to customize their in-store experience in a tremendous number of ways from home, while traveling…anywhere they can get an internet connection,” Finigan said.
With Encompass LE2, Muzak’s business customers can view and update their music program selections, scheduling, and preferences using a web-based user interface. They can also create multiple zones of music throughout their business space; customize schedules and playlists according to business types, regions, promotions, or other criteria; as well as upload and schedule in-store messages anytime. The music and messaging play from the same media player, which also stores back-up music to ensure 100-percent uptime during inclement weather.
“We’re extremely pleased to expand our multi-million, multi-year contract with Muzak,” stated Ned L. Mountain, president and COO of Wegener. “Encompass LE2 is the latest in a line of satellite-enabled technologies we have provided to Muzak, giving their customers complete control over their in-store music experience and messaging to promote the desired mood and energy levels for their business environments.”
