ACCESS integrates Karaoke services powered by Stingray
November 22, 2022
ACCESS Europe will integrate Karaoke services, powered by Stingray, into the ACCESS Twine for Car (Twine4Car) in-vehicle infotainment platform. Stingray Karaoke supports both a touch screen and voice-controlled in-car experience that is designed to enable drivers and passengers to safely learn, practice, and perform their favourite songs.
Stingray Karaoke offers drivers a unique in-car experience by allowing them to tap into a catalogue of up to 100,000 licensed songs. Local and international content can be enjoyed in many languages, including English, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese and German. The platform has high-quality original concept background videos and images with easy-to-read, synchronized scrolling lyrics cues that appear directly on the screen. The innovative user interface is customisable to bring a more personalised experience to the customer.
Aono Masahiro, CEO, ACCESS Europe, said: “Karaoke is popular globally, and is something I really enjoy. By integrating Stingray Karaoke with our in-vehicle entertainment solution we are providing an experience similar to that provided by the recent growth in Asia of single-person karaoke rooms. OEMs can be confident that the ACCESS and Stingray solution will provide an in-car entertainment experience that drivers and passengers look forward to every journey, allowing them to sing along to the songs and lyrics they know and love in the comfort of their own vehicle.”
Tom Adams, Managing Director, Stingray Germany GmbH, said: “Through this partnership, ACCESS and Stingray have a shared vision of providing the best possible experience to our song-loving, connected car users. By integrating our APIs with the ACCESS in-vehicle entertainment solution, we move closer to our goal of connecting with Karaoke fans anywhere and anytime.”
The new version of Twine4Car includes content from several media partners and a wide range of apps, TV services, and VOD offerings for many markets. Features such as Sync Play will be beneficial when using Stingray Karaoke as it enables multiple passengers to relish a more group-centric experience.
