getting your music right
Getting the right background and foreground music is crucial. It helps make your customers and guests feel comfortable. As a result they are likely to stay longer, and better still, return.
Leaving your music system to professionals, like AMS, makes sense. It frees up you and your staff to get on with your core business, while still having complete control over what is, and sometimes more importantly, what is not played. In addition with an AMS computer music system you can check, and even change, the music remotely via any internet connection at any time. You can even control it all via your smartphone or tablet.
With an AMS Music, Music Video and/or Karaoke System you can relax and know that our systems are very stable, flexible and reliable. If you want to restict staff access to the music, our systems can be configured to achieve this.

Entertain & Captivate Them With Our Music!
Music and entertainment are the key to keeping your customers on-premise for longer which results in them spending more. Great entertainment gets them talking, telling others and keeps them coming back.
At AMS we have a huge range of music and an unlimited number of songs on our music systems from a library of over 150,000 (and growing!), carefully selected audio, music video and karaoke tracks. It’s not often that we are asked for something we don’t have, or can't get. Every system has over 120+ pre-made categories & genres. We give you the ability to schedule the lot to play when you want without touching a thing, and to manually create and generate play lists. This means you get the right music, at the right time, when you want it.
We will consult with you to get the music mix that works best for you. From there we will fine tune what music is on the system. We are also happy to look at what you have at present, CD’s etc, speak to your DJ or whomever you need us to. Each audio system is delivered with at least 50,000 initial songs. All of our new tracks are supplied direct from the record companies.
Our audio, music video and karaoke tracks are some of the highest quality in the business. Much of our back catalogue music video tracks have had their audio re-mastered and we pride ourselves on quality.

On-Screen Images & Commercials & Hotel Lobby Signage
Let’s face it, point of sale promotional material has been around for years. This sort of advertising works, however the old paper and cardboard is a thing of the past. The good news is that our software has the ability to play On-Screen Commercials and/or just images that help promote your place at your place! In addition to our On-Screen Advertising Billboards you also get the scrolling ticker that runs along the bottom of the screen (similar to what you see on CNN/BBC with the stock quotes etc - see image below). Using these tools you can increase your revenue by selling the space at your place!
You can use still Jpg images like photo’s or Mpg - moving commercials as seen on DVD’s or your digital camera. AMS supplies a wide range of image templates for almost any occasion, that can be easily edited directly on our machines. We also have a large range of images from both of the main breweries. All of this is available to you free of charge.
For hotel lobbies and reception areas, promote whats going on at your place or display whats happening in your function rooms, with our easy to use on-screen slideshow and scrolling ticker at the bottom of the screen.

Our software is also touch screen capable. This can be achieved in two ways. You can access our software via your POS till screens or we can supply a touch screen dedicated for the music system.
two music video outputs on a single system
Our music video systems support two video outputs along with another audio only output. This means you can have three zones all at once all on the one system. You could have use this feature for two different music video channels or maybe a dedicated ads channel, a music video channel and a further audio only channel on a single system!
The best new of all is that this costs you nothing extra! Just another reason why we reckon AMS provides the Best Value For Money Music Systems In NZ!
put your logo on your screens
While our competitors are busy promoting themselves on your screens only AMS allow you to have your logo on-screen over the video's just like the TV stations watermark but better - see below. Your logo would be where ours is.
unlimited music updates
Music updates are not limited to 'x' number of tracks per month, or a chosen 'style' (ie, you don't only get one update disc per month of say, rock or pop songs). Our monthly/quarterly music updates are extensive, basically you get everything new that we've added since your last update. Only AMS deliver UNLIMITED updates.
AMS’s software delivers Karaoke. Karaoke is very similar to music videos in that there is an on-screen video that plays the words and the audio to go with it. The graphics are super smooth and all AMS Karaoke systems come with over 15,000 Karaoke tracks.

schedule your music
If you want to have the system generate a play list at specific times of the day like, 10am - Easy Listening, 12 midday – Jazz etc, then this can be set up to automatically happen at the right time. AMS’s music scheduling and play list generation is incredibly powerful. You can create a play list and avoid playing the same artist and/or song in a set time frame like 1 hour.
remote access to your ams system via the internet
Because our music systems are connected to the internet you also have full remote access to the music computer from almost any internet connected device in the world, including your laptop, iPhone, iTouch or Android phone. With this remote access you can fully control your AMS Music System as if you were there, and of course check that what you want being played, is being played.
DJ’s have specific requirements that aren’t used when using the system for day to day background music. AMS Music Systems can deliver for the most demanding DJ.
maintaining a consistent volume level
CD’s and the like differ in volume level from song to song/CD to CD. The same applies to most MP3 players. This means you have to adjust the volume of your amplifier regularly. All AMS Music & Music Video Systems come with a compressor and limiter built into our software. This means the volume is always kept at a constant level - similar to most radio stations. The only time you turn it up or down is to adjust the sound level you want at the time.
what's been played? logging
To ensure your staff are playing the music they should be the system keeps daily logs of every song ever played and the time it was played. The logs can be e-mailed to you.
easy music search
Searching for songs or an album couldn't be easier. You can search by title, artist or album or part of either. In the example below we have typed in ‘Rolling’ everything in the system with ‘Rolling’ in will appear in the search window. Once you have found what you want simply drag and drop the track into the play list to have it play. You can also use the 120+ categories to choose songs from. Easy.
quality computer hardware
At AMS we use, recommend, lease ONLY quality HP computers and hardware. This is simply because we get the back up and service from HP we expect for our customers. As a result you can expect your music PC to be reliable, if there are any issues, we'll swap it out!
Due to licensing regulation from One Music NZ we cannot outright sell you the music we have, we lease it to you. We typically lease the computer hardware too.
Regardless of who you get your music from, be it an MSP (Music Service Provider) like AMS, CD's or Sky you still need to hold a Public Performance Licence from One Music NZ.
If you have more than one area (zone) in a premise that you require different music for, like upstairs and downstairs, no problem! You can have up to 4 zones on one PC at no extra cost!
made the right choice?
You get our exclusive guarantee: If within 30 days of installation of your new AMS Computer Music Video System you are not completely satisfied, we will remove the system and void your contract. That's how confident we are that our product can deliver!
