There are many suppliers out there. Sadly, lots of them rely on using tablets with karaoke apps to bring their customers a karaoke experience. SUNVIG strongly believes this is not the right way to present a karaoke concept. Here is why.
When looking for a way to create a karaoke concept for your company, you will likely come across a supplier of tablets with a karaoke app. If you are a long-time user of karaoke apps and tablets, you have likely already encountered some problems. SUNVIG has examined those problems and ensured they are remedied in our systems.
Cables and equipment
The usage of tablets is prevalent in the karaoke business. Tablets may look slick, but they come with several practical issues—the latest editions of certain brands of tablets no longer have an output for headphones. Secondly, tablets usually have no place to plug in an HMDI-cable. That means extra equipment is necessary to create a karaoke solution, adding unnecessary clutter. Adding a digital mixer to the tablet will only increase this pile of cables and loose technology.
Our solution is to put all this equipment into compact, professional machines. The only external cables you will find on our systems are the plugs. The rest is integrated.
Our microphones come wireless, and the audio mixers are digitally shown on a central touchscreen, making it visually more pleasing. Our system also comes with the benefit of being easier to clean.
Durability Tablet vs. SUNVIG Karaoke Systems
Memory storage and WiFi connection
Tablets have a limited memory space. In most cases, this memory is not sufficient for professional use of a karaoke solution. Besides, a tablet relies on a WiFi connection to work since most apps stream their catalogs from a digital source.
SUNVIG systems simply don’t have this problem. Our machines have ample memory because of their internal SSD storage—an added benefit is they also work offline. This makes it suitable to use with no stable connection, such as in basements and even in the ocean on a ship. A WiFi connection is needed when the software or the catalog needs to be updated.
Settings and security
A separate audio mixer on a karaoke app makes it easy to play around with the settings. This is fun for customers but makes it inconvenient for subsequent visitors to amend the settings.
Because a SUNVIG system has an integrated mixer, resetting the system to default is a breeze. If you don’t want to give your customers access to the settings, you can even protect them with a personalized security code—this adds an extra layer of protection.
A true experience
Another problem arises when considering if a tablet offers a true karaoke experience. Many customers will conclude that they could have just stayed home and have downloaded the app for themselves. Some apps even require a phone to operate it. Visitors select a song by using their phones, which then streams to the karaoke app.
SUNVIG specializes in creating a karaoke experience. Our systems are fully customizable and can therefore blend in to the environment and be part of the whole experience. To add to this experience, our systems can be provided with background videos, background music and company logos.
Social entertainment is the future, which is why we do not allow the opportunity to select songs with your smartphone. This is in response to our customers’ feedback, who have of negative perception of using their phones because it creates individuality in an experience that should be shared and creates a distraction. SUNVIG’s systems work with large, central screens that include everyone in the room in the activity. As a result, guests enjoy more interaction and more joyful memories.
The plus side of tablets
Is there a positive to using a tablet? Of course. Tablets have a wide range of apps that can provide extra services, like streaming movies on apps like Netflix or Amazon Prime. Or you can even cast sports matches with apps from sports networks.
However, our systems have this benefit, too. Many apps can be installed on our karaoke machines to cast anything you want from it, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Disney+, ESPN, HBO Go… Really, anything is possible with our source extension. Because of the integrated HDMI input, you can connect game consoles to the system to further expand the possibilities.
There are many benefits of using a SUNVIG karaoke system over a karaoke tablet app. Are you interested in our machines, or are you looking for more information?
