Muzak Holdings LLC is introducing a new hand-held device designed to facilitate in-store music programming. It’s called the Encompass MV and weighs just over 300 grams. It fits into the palm of the hand yet stores up to 500 hours of programming and can be controlled from a distance over the internet.
The device is being bundled as part of its Muzak Styles option, which provides for more targeted programming. Bob Finigan, Vice-President of Product and Marketing said that “A one-size-fits-all approach simply can’t work for everyone”
In February this year, Muzak Holdings LLC, the company that probably made ‘elevator music’ famous, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors as its debt matured and restructuring alternatives fell through due to the economic crisis.
Based in Fort Mill, South Carolina, the company listed debt of USD 465.3 million and assets of USD 324.2 million.
