Introduces New SingCast Technology to Wirelessly Cast Karaoke Videos
Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Singing Machine Company, Inc. (“Singing Machine” or the “Company”) (OTCQX: SMDM) – the worldwide leader in consumer karaoke products today announced it is launching a new line of karaoke products in partnership with a major national U.S. retailer.
For the first time ever in a karaoke machine, the Company is introducing proprietary new SingCast technology which allows customers to wirelessly cast high-definition karaoke videos from a mobile device to the karaoke machine to display the lyrics on a connected TV. The SingCast technology is specifically designed to integrate with the Company’s iOS and Android Apps for access to its digital subscription karaoke content catalog.
Starting this spring 2022, these new products will be available for sale at the world’s largest retailer, in its flagship consumer electronics department, and will be available nationwide. The Company believes the combination of wide distribution, a value-oriented price point, and a compelling digital content offering should accelerate its subscription content adoption rate in the coming months as consumers recognize the value of this exciting new product offering.
Gary Atkinson, CEO of Singing Machine commented, “Our SingCast technology represents a significant milestone in our new strategy to become a technology-driven, subscription-based karaoke company. The ability to deliver high-quality proprietary video content with karaoke lyrics embedded in the video is unique in our industry. For years, our App experience was limited to singing lyrics off a hand-held device. Today, our SingCast technology expands the home karaoke experience, enabling an interactive karaoke experience that caters to what our customers want. Just as importantly, to access this desirable functionality, consumer will need to download our latest Singing Machine app which should improve adoption onto the subscription platform.”
