What Can A Karaoke Player Do For You?

An important aspect of karaoke show, unlike any other entertainment, is how the customers may see, select, and reserve songs that they wish to sing. And an old answer to that is the printed paper songbooks on the tables.

A more modern way than the printed song books is the E-Songbook tablets that communicate with the karaoke player. The E-Songbook tablets would allow the customers to see, search and reserve the songs in the karaoke player using a network.

However the E-Songbook tablets until now has required special apps to be installed. And the apps were often causing problems connecting to the karaoke player, becoming slow and unyielding with large song numbers, and simply not supporting all the new devices coming out every year. This pushed the karaoke shows to provide at their expense the certain tablets that are known to work with the apps.

Next comes the JB-199 IV karaoke player that has a built-in server inside. Having a server means that any device can connect to the karaoke player just like visiting a website. The customers in particular can use their phones to connect for the song list, lyrics, and music. That is, the customers can select, preview, and reserve songs, and in addition hear the music and see the lyrics also from the phones.

The ease and fun of using the phones also saves money. The karaoke shows no longer needs to provide the E-Songbook tablets for the tables. The savings will continue when you don’t have to replace the tablets that get dropped, drowned, or lost.

The JB-199 IV Karaoke player can support unlimited number of songs with CD+G, MP3+G, ZIP, AVI, MP4, Super CD+G, etc. formats. While storing the song files safely, the player can search and play each and every song instantly. The player utilizes the Playlist concept to separate the operation and management enhancing the speed and the security at the same time.

Following the tradition of JB karaoke series, the JB-199 IV contains the professional features such as Pitch control, Tempo control, Sync control, Silence gap remover, etc. It also has the advanced features including History, Announcement, Digital Mixer, Bill Acceptor, International Interface, Advertisement, etc. It delivers the most comprehensive set of functions developed over the years since 2002.

The JB-199 IV Karaoke player can play the music and lyrics in local venues such as bars and restaurants through the HDMI, VGA, or RCA outputs. The player can also be combined with CAVS DK3 Digital Mixer for integrated control of music volume, microphone volume, echo, reverb, etc. The control can reside remotely in the E-Songbooks enabling the hosts to move around and mingle with the customers.

Having a built-in server, the JB-199 IV karaoke player can also play the music and lyrics online via streaming. It can accommodate 20, 50, or even 100 customers online allowing them to host or join karaoke rooms in cyber space. The customers can join using phones, tablets, or laptops from across town, across state, and across world.

The new E-Songbook for the JB-199 IV is browser based. That is, the new E-Songbook requires no app of any kind and connects to the JB-199 IV using a browser such as Apple Safari, Google Chrome, or MS Edge/Explorer. Previous E-Songbooks required the special apps to communicate with karaoke players because neither the E-Songbooks nor the karaoke players had the server capability. Now with the JB-199 IV having a server inside, smartphones, tablets, and in fact any devices can connect to the JB-199 IV in the same way as opening a website.

The new E-Songbook can open instantly for all small or large song lists. That is, the JB-199 IV with a server inside can parse out the song lists for speedy and efficient delivery. Do you have over 1 million songs? Do not worry as the new E-Songbook can open and display the songs instantly for unlimited number of songs.

The new E-Songbook can play the music and lyrics together with the JB-199 IV. That is, the JB-199 IV having a server inside can stream the music and lyrics at the same time it plays. The E-Songbook can then receive the stream and play the music and lyrics.

In fact the JB-199 IV with a server inside can stream any song from its library, and even different songs to different E-Songbooks. This is all the while the JB-199 IV is playing a song on its own. This leads to the next feature that the guests can use the E-Songbooks to preview the songs before making a selection. The guests can play the music and lyrics of any songs in private, without playing in the JB-199 IV or other E-Songbooks connected.

The best part of the new E-Songbook is that it would not cost anything to your pocket. The guests can always use their smartphones as E-Songbooks and connect easily to the JB-199 IV. There is no need for you to spend money to prepare the E-Songbook tablets installed with apps. The saving will begin from the start and continue down the years as the tablets you do not have get dropped or drowned.

The JB-199 IV with its server can accommodate 20, 50, or even 100 network connections. The connections can be for the E-Songbooks as described above or for the online guests who are thousands of miles away. Here we note that the E-Songbook and the online guest can be treated as the same in the JB-199 IV. The E-Songbook can be thought of as an online guest connected locally, or the online guest can be thought of as the E-Songbook connected publicly through Internet. In both cases, the JB-199 IV presents the same easy-to-use customer interface for the song selection and controls.

The JB-199 IV customer interface when combined with Zoom Meeting can create an online karaoke lounge where the guests can meet face to face and share the karaoke fun. The online lounge is just like a local karaoke lounge except it is in the cyber space. You can experience the online karaoke lounge first hand by going to CAVS Karaoke. You can sing solos, duets, or all together with the guests in the comforts and safety of your home.
