Our Solutions Overview
Rosi Systems is a supplier of premium background music. In a nutshell, throw in a bunch of songs, maybe add in some commercial messages or announcements, and our system will blend it all together and produce your own personal “radio station” – Background Music playing in your shop or venue.
We have recruited music programmers with unenviable track records & top listening figures from market leading radio stations in the UK. You choose the sort of songs or genres you’d like to be played, then our team will do the work and find the actual song mix that’s right for you and your market. Whilst our competitors systems then just play at random from a pool of songs in any old order, our clever technology provides the optimum balance and flow between styles, artists and even a good balance between males and female singers, or pop and R’n’B songs for example.
Don’t leave the music choice in your business down to one of your staff members to play their personal favourite CD on repeat all day long!
Standard Copyrighted Music
These are the normal songs that you can buy in the shops, listen to on streaming services and hear on the radio – these are performed by and composed by artists and writers which are protected by copyright collection agencies.
You will need a ‘public performance’ license to play these songs in your business, but 99.9% of the familiar songs your customers are likely to be at ease with and will want to hear in reception areas, shops, bars and gyms etc are likely to fall into this category and the licenses required are not prohibitively expensive.
Even if you just had a radio on in the corner, and it could be heard by members of the public visiting your business, YOU DO STILL NEED a public performance license for this just the same!
** Bear in mind that using normal personal streaming services and playout devices like iPods or Sonos players ARE NOT licensed and legal for public performance use, as the songs are not encoded and/or encrypted in any way, and this is a condition of public performance licenses (which our Background music systems do satisfy)
Royalty Free Music
Royalty free background music is becoming increasingly popular. This is music which isn’t under the control of the main copyright collection agencies. Because the music isn’t under their control, it means you don’t have to pay for a public performance license in your venue.
In the old days it was limited to cheesey off-key cover versions that sounded a bit weird in certain shops, but nowadays we have a large selection of royalty free background music genres which are suitable for all businesses.
You won’t hear the pop-songs you hear on the radio, but you will get a decent selection of music which will enhance the atmosphere in your venue.
We find royalty free music works well for genres like chill-out, deep house, ambiance, etc, rather than standard familiar music genres like Pop and Rock.
What do Rosi Systems provide?
Our full background music service includes the following:
- High definition audio player (various hardware options available)
- Unlimited choice from our great music playlists.
- Choose which playlists play at which time/day.
- Powerful playlist tools which prevent the same music playing in the same order on consecutive days.
- Schedule special music events.
- Automatic content updates via the internet.
We have 2 methods of delivering the music at your business:
1. PC based
A small PC on your premises – Our pre-tuned custom machine or a Windows PC which you can provide or may already have.
This device runs our market leading software and automatically downloads new content from our servers daily.
We can remotely manage our BMS software on this device – It plays music from the local hard disk, so it is not dependent on the internet connection,
but it does need to be connected to the internet in order that we can remotely manage and provide updates.
Our PC solution can play multiple zones at once (up to 32 per PC!), so if you wanted different music in various areas of your premises a single PC can achieve this!
We stream the audio from our servers to our “set top box” dedicated tuner, or indeed any device of your choice capable of receiving internet radio streams.
This relies on your internet connection to play the audio – If the internet connection drops then the music would stop playing.
Multiple zones can be achieved using multiple set top boxes – check whether your current bandwith can comfortably withstand an audio stream with one of our test streams here!
We charge £34.99 per zone / per month for the music (over a 24 month term), whichever delivery method you choose.
If your internet connection is poor or already struggling with the current load, we can also offer a managed internet connection as part of the contract.
We can provide prices if required.
