Sound rides the wave


Sound Leisure’s Venue-Hub jukebox was hailed the product of the EAG show, due to its sophisticated software and the capability to accept card payments via Barclaycard Wave technology, which is an industry world first according to Barclays.

“Apparently we are accepting this cashless technology even  before Apple Industries, which will come on board later this year,” says Alan Black.

“We looked outside of the industry for inspiration for Venue-Hub and we have been working on it for the past 2 years,” says Sound Leisure’s Chris Black. “It takes elements of the technology that our customers have become used to in their daily lives, such as the iPod, or the experience of buying digital music downloads online.”

Venue-Hub features unique music search facilities that actually interacts with the user, making suggestions if a search is spelled incorrectly, or offering similar music choices to encourage onward play.

“It is very rare in the past few years for us to take orders on the stand for jukeboxes but that has actually happened this year at EAG. We couldn’t be happier with the response we have received for Venue-Hub and we expect it will continue the tradition for excellence that customers have come to expect with our market-leading products such as Milestones in Music,” adds Chris.
