For detail instruction on how to install and operate, please go to Touch Screen/3D Customer Interface.  Do you need more than one touch screen to provide multiple access points for your customers? Please remember that for all JB-199 players, you can also use the wireless E-Songbooks, iPhones, iPads, and Android devices to see the songs and reserve paperlessly.

CAVS JB-199 II Server Digital Jukebox comes with an option to encrypt the song content inside the player such that no other player and no other computer can use the data.  Such protection is possible by attaching hardware specific data onto each song files.  The protection requires a USB key lock that can be purchased directly from

How many JB-199 can be connected as client?
Total of 9 JB-199 units can be connected as clients.
Can you also use the server unit as a player?
Yes, JB-199 Server can be used as a player to cover a room, just as a client.
How do you play songs simultaneously from 10 JB-199 units?

It is like having 10 JB-199 units with songs in each of their hard drives.  Except in Server-Client version, only the JB-199 Server will store the songs in its hard drive. All other JB-199 Client units will share the songs from the Server. You can play the same or different songs at anytime from all of the JB-199 units.

I already own JB-199 unit(s). Can it become a client? Or server?
Yes, any JB-199 can become a client with software upgrade and proper setting change; however, for JB-199 Server, your unit is likely to need hardware upgrade from the factory.
Could you move song library from existing JB-199 to JB-199 Server?
  Yes, if you already own a JB-199, you could transfer its songs to JB-199 Server. For detail, refer to page 10 in the User Manual.
What type of router or switch is needed for Server-Client connection?
  Any standard router or switch is acceptable as long as it is 10/100 Mbps Ethernet compatible and have the number of ports at least equal to the number of JB-199 Server and Client(s) combined.
What is the benefits of having Server-Client configuration rather than multiple JB-199 units?

First, there can be considerable money saving from having to purchase a single copy of songs rather than multiple copies. Second, there can also be time saving having to manage a single data base of the server rather than multiple data bases.

Who is the JB-199 Server-Client version intended for?
  The Server-Client version can be effectively incorporated into restaurants and bars with multiple karaoke rooms or booths. It would also be suitable for hotels and cruise liners where karaoke needs to be available in more than single locations.
