Background Music and Message System

FEATURES

  • Plays MP3 based Songs and Messages at any programmable frequency

  • Songs are played in true Random Fashion

  • Unique Encryption system ensures Regulatory Compliance

  • Internal Amplifier can be used with up to 10 external speakers

  • Time Programmable Music and Message play option

  • Digital 'Solid State' operation provides exceptional reliability and Minimal Power Consumption
     

Our BMS Background Music and Message Systems have been specifically designed to provide high quality background audio in a compact and cost effective package.

BMS uses minimal power and is designed for ultra reliable 24/7 operation over many years. In the event of a power cut BMS will automatically restart when power resumes.

BMS can play continuous Music only or a combination of Music and Messages.

Music is played in true RANDOM fashion so that every song is played once before any song is repeated. 

Messages can be played at specified time intervals (from 01 to 99 minutes), or after a preset number of Music files (01 - 99 music files). 

If required, Messages can be played at higher volumes to that of the music files in 12 separate 1.5dB volume increase steps. 

Models BMS2 and BMS3 also allow for up to 250 High Rotation Songs that can be played at a programmable frequency.   

 

 
 

To ensure compliance with new regulatory requirements, our BMS systems will only play MP3 files that have been Encrypted. An Encryption program is supplied which can Encrypt either a single file or a complete folder in one action, with each file taking just a few seconds. Encrypted files can then only be played in BMS devices, which prevents unauthorised use.

Our BMS systems provide BOTH a line level output (stereo) and an amplified 10W speaker output (mono). Our amplified output will allow it to drive up to TEN speakers direct, without the need for a separate amplifier. This will provide background level music for areas of up to 150-200 square meters. The Line Level output and a separate amplifier should be used for larger areas.

BMS stores its Music and Messages on removable SD Flash Cards. Up to 250 Messages and up to 1000 songs can be loaded on to the supplied Flash Cards. Higher capacity SD cards that can hold up to 8000 songs are optionally available. This system allows for a complete change of Music or Message content in seconds, by simple Flash Card exchange. You can even do this without switching off the power first.

An optional TIME PROGRAMMABLE Music and Message play facility is available for models BMS2 and BMS3. With this option individual Music Folders and Messages can be set to play in specified time periods within each day, days of the week or even specific start and stop dates. You can also use this facility to automatically START and STOP at specific times for each day of the week.

 

 

THREE MODELS TO CHOOSE FROM

 

BMS 1

Our base Model BMS1 uses a single supplied SD Card to hold all Music and Messages.

Because of this, BMS1 is best suited for sites that wish to play MUSIC ONLY or where MESSAGE CHANGES are infrequent.

Users can achieve a complete change of Music and Message content in seconds, by simply exchanging its SD Flash card. 

BMS1 is a basic model which does not support Time and Date Programming of Music and Message or variable Message to Music volumes. 

 

BMS2

BMS2 is our most popular model and it uses a separate SD Card for MUSIC and another SD card for Messages and High Rotation songs. 

BMS2 is ideal for sites which update Messages and High Rotation Songs on a frequent basis.

Users can achieve a complete change of Music or Message content in seconds, by simply exchanging the appropriate SD Flash card. It is not necessary to switch the unit off before doing this.  

BMS2 allows you to play Messages and High Rotation Songs at a programmable frequency relative to normal Music tracks. You can also have BMS2 play Messages at up to 18dB higher than Music tracks.

A PC based FTP program is available for use with BMS2, to allow for completely automatic update of Messages via the Internet. BMS2 will play MUSIC ONLY whenever the Message SD card has been removed for updating.

Our optional Model BMS2/T device will allow you to play specific Messages and/or Music Folders  :

  • During specified periods of any day.

  • During 1 or more specified days of the week

  • Between a specified Start Date and a Stop Date Between specified dates

  • Any combination of the above

 


BMS3

Provides all capabilities of our BMS2 device, combined with our popular TDS Message on Demand facility

BMS3 incorporates a 'Touch Sensitive Keypad' and an LED display where you can ENTER a specific Message Number and instruct it to play.

BMS3 is ideal for those sites which also need to play 'SPECIAL' recorded messages on an ad-hoc basis, such as :
 

  • Retail Stores

  • Pubs and Clubs

  • Airports, Sporting Fields and other Public Areas

 

Up to 250 'SPECIAL' Messages can additionally be loaded onto the SD Message Card and any one of these Messages can be played at any time by simply entering the Message Number (from 1 to 250) and pressing the PLAY button. 

BMS3 will then :

  1. Ramp down the volume of the Music File that is currently playing

  2. Play the required SPECIAL Message

  3. Ramp up the volume of the Music File that was interrupted from the same point where it stopped playing.

 

Our optional Model BMS3/T device will allow you to play specific Messages and/or Music Folders  :

  • During specified periods of any day.

  • During 1 or more specified days of the week

  • Between a specified Start Date and a Stop Date Between specified dates

  • Any combination of the above

 

 

DMC Encryption PC Software

ENCRYPTION FACILITY

All of our BMS models use our unique Encryption facility, which is designed to protect your valuable productions from unauthorised use, editing or copying.

Also, if you are involved in the Background Music industry, it is now a regulatory requirement that all commercial music MUST be ENCRYPTED.

Using Encryption is quick and easy. All you need to do is encrypt your MP3 files using our supplied Encryption program, which takes just a few seconds.

You can Encrypt a single file, or a complete folder of files with a single action. Once your file is encrypted, it cannot be opened, altered or used in any device other than a Natcomm unit which is configured for Encryption.

Similarly, our Encryption devices cannot play standard MP3 files or any file other than those encrypted with our program.

The same Encryption program is used for ALL of our products ensuring standardisation of the processes.
