It gives us great pleasure to be able to welcome in a new era of truly integrated music in the home, something that our clients have only been dreaming of until now.
The integration will bring with it the opportunity for both new and existing Ideaworks clients to stream from the largest on-demand music library globally (+40 million tracks) instantly from any room using Mesh – our integrated control system.
We will also see full integration of Deezer Flow – your very own personalised soundtrack of non-stop music recommendations made by Deezer’s cutting-edge algorithm mixed with selections from from 50 music editors globally.
When we first released Mesh in 2011, we wanted to embed within it a dedicated music server that would allow our clients to enjoy their favourite music seamlessly around their connected home. Muse is exactly that – an intuitive music system that enables users to keep their music collection up to date by automatically syncing with iTunes, and to organise, catalogue and manage their music with ease.
Fast forward to 2016 and we are now in an age where online music streaming is at an all-time high, with the UK alone accounting for a reported 1 billion streams every week, all of this across music streaming services including Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music, Tidal and Deezer.
We spoke to the Muse team over at Tyba to find out why they chose Deezer over any of the other services available:
“When discussing which streaming service we wanted to bring to our music system Muse first, top of the requirements list was to achieve complete integration. We wanted to maintain our seamless interface and familiar usability while providing all of the benefits of streaming music playback and discovery. Deezer was appealing in almost all respects, from their truly global service to their expansive 40 million+ music library.” (Oz Andrews – Technology Director, Tyba)
For Ideaworks’ clients, this new development will be another feature within Mesh that is made personal to them; with the ability to enjoy their favourite music content around their home irrespective of whether it is streamed online or locally owned.
“While streaming music is the more increasingly popular choice over buying and owning music, we have found that in reality most of our clients still have large collections of their own music that they want to enjoy.
There is finally a product on the market that provides the music solution that our clients have been dreaming of – a solution that is all about their content; allowing simple management and playback of content they own and new content they discover all in one place.” (Kevin Andrews – Managing Director, Ideaworks)
Now more than just a music management system, it’s no wonder that Muse is often the music server of choice for our clients.
Existing Ideaworks clients can enjoy 3 months free listening with Deezer by requesting a unique voucher code from us at the earliest opportunity. What’s more, we are pleased to be able to extend this offer to new clients looking to integrate our Mesh control system into their home.
Clients using Muse will also be able to enjoy Deezer’s latest updates including live sports commentary and a collection of over 40,000 podcast feeds (and counting).
