Charles Goldstuck, CEO of TouchTunes Interactive Networks, said…
Virtuo is a ground-breaking device that will redefine entertainment and change the way media and content are consumed. It’s a SmartJuke, for a smart audience.
Jonas Damon, creative director at Frog’s New York studio, said…
The TouchTunes Virtuo has reinvented the experience of what a jukebox can be. It does this not by emulating the old devices, but by building on current interaction behaviors and converging them with iconic industrial design.
An LED array that sits above the interface screen and the ambient lights strongly ask for attention. The landscape-format touchscreen delivers a “shoulder to shoulder” experience with friends and features a built-in camera to capture those moments. Moreover, if you are not sure of what to play, the jukebox’s smart interface is there to help you out. Using contextual data for all songs, you can search by lyrics and explore songs in a 3D contextual web that links genre, chronology, influences and geography.
The TouchTunes Virtuo jukebox also gives you the option to make and edit your own customized playlists onboard or from your MyTouchTunes account.
