Giada DK310 Used as Core Controller of Thousands of Jukeboxes
An automated musical instrument company with a century of experience in developing cutting-edge entertainment solutions for the bar, restaurant, and hospitality industries, has deployed 2,000 Giada DK310 in their jukebox solutions in the U. K.
The jukebox is the classic intersection of music and hanging out with your friends. Whether it be a nickel, dime, quarter, or dollar, feeding the machine to play your favorite song is a classic bit of Americana. We’ve seen the rise of the digital touch-screen jukebox and they’re popping up in bars across the world.
The heart of this jukebox is a compact "core controller" designed to support audio and video outputs, as well as other essential I/O control functions. To choose a suitable embedded PC for the core controller is the most important for the success of jukeboxes.
Aiming to create a compact, powerful, and cost-effective jukebox to revolutionize complete entertainment packages encompassing music, videos, and digital signage applications, the customer required the embedded PC for the jukebox to have ultra-compact design and extended life cycle.
Having collaborated with Giada since 2018 on various projects, the customer found Giada products to be exceptionally reliable, with a low return merchandise authorization (RMA) rate. The customer finally chose Giada's latest offering, the DK310, for the jukeboxes. The embedded PC features slim design, over 7 years' life cycle and removable MSATA slot, aligning seamlessly with the "core controller" concept, ensuring long-term deployment success.
Voice of Customer:
"The Giada DK310 is a good choice for us. Its compact size, long life cycle, and excellent performance make this product the perfect choice for our newest jukebox. Our customers can be assured of an excellent return on their investment," said Vice President of Operations & Hardware Engineering
