I am a prime example. With sleep, like many out there, it’s often a problem. So, I set out to create long format sleep channels that can play all night for adults and children alike. Being my own laboratory rat, I tried these channels when I travelled to see its effects on jet lag. Well, never perfect, but much better than before. I could get off the plane, hit the hotel and voila, could now get 5 – 6 hours of sleep… much better than the 2 or 3 hours from before.   </p> <p>Being a lifelong composer and someone who loves color, has allowed me to produce and edit some truly magical episodes in 4K with some incredible music that soothes the soul and mind. These days, we all need a little natural beauty and peaceful music, to counteract the chaos of daily life. I hope I have created a little impact in the world with CalmLIFE.” </p> <p>With the addition of CalmLIFE’s soothing videos to our growing portfolio, we’re excited for what’s next in 2023. We can’t wait to share the marvel of CalmLIFE with an even bigger audience.</p> <p>Stay tuned for upcoming launches! </p> <p> </p> <p><a class="button-external" href="https://calmradio.com/calmlife-on-tv" target="_blank">Learn more about CalmLIFE </a></p> <hr style="border:solid 1px #000;" /></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/products" hreflang="en">Products</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="https://d1epjnee0y8w64.cloudfront.net/blog/s3fs-public/2023-01/CalmLIFE-Calm-Radio-Soothing-Relaxation-Videos-on-TV.png" width="1200" height="630" alt="Soothing Relaxation Videos on TV - CalmLIFE" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-listen field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Listen</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Fri, 20 Jan 2023 17:01:32 +0000 Stingray 1097 at http://blog.stingray.com Transformative Products in an Evolving Digital Ecosystem http://blog.stingray.com/stingray-ces-caraoke <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Transformative Products in an Evolving Digital Ecosystem </span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Stingray</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 01/04/2023</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>SmartTVs started coming on the scene in a meaningful way around 2014, and by 2022, they had transformed how many of us consume “TV” – from intuitive guides and features for presenting SVOD, AVOD, and FAST channels – twinned with a panoply of apps, for any interest or lifestyle. They delight consumers with dazzling 4K displays and window-pane models that effortlessly fit into any home décor style. Interactive apps from Netflix and Disney to specialty cooking and video games all blended into the fabric of what was once a one-way broadcast medium, transformed by digital technologies and an ever-expanding broadband grid covering 100s of millions of HHs. Transformative.</p> <p>And now, there is a new kid on the block, attracting attention, and always evolving. While relatively limited today, all the stars are aligning to usher in another transformative product leap, well beyond connecting your phone to Apple CarPlay. The new kid on the block is literally “on your block,” or just down the street. The next generation of EV and hybrid connected automobiles are transforming our in car experience, forever.</p> <p>Your next car will likely feature not just your favorite apps and content integrated into breathtaking visual screens and speakers, but also include thousands of global radio stations, customized music streams &amp; audiobooks, blogs, interactive gaming and sharing, gambling, teleconferencing, cameras, AR/VR, retail partner interconnectivity, and a whole lot more.</p> <p>And certain embedded “killer apps” will help to drive customer engagement to sample, learn and find value in that new “interactive digital experience center” on wheels.</p> <p>Recent history provides a powerful example.</p> <p>When VOD TV was budding, new content that could demonstrate “On Demand” interactive technology was in demand. Back then, karaoke emerged as a quintessential VOD product, uniquely designed to be selected and played back with synchronized lyrics inviting consumers to engage with the new technology. It was a fun and simple way to make VOD easy to understand. The Karaoke Channel was added to most VOD cable TV platforms across the emerging digital TV landscape by 2011.</p> <p>Skip ahead a few years, and Karaoke is ubiquitous - on TV shows, in Karaoke bars, on home karaoke systems, YouTube, and other dedicated Apps. And once again, karaoke is helping to usher in a new market, but this time in your car. It’s getting a boost from a couple of entrepreneurial firms who have approached it from different perspectives over the years but are now collaborating to create a transformative product for this emerging market.</p> <p>Imagine you can sing into a sleek professional microphone that mixes perfectly with the karaoke track playing, you can adjust the sound and modes to auto-tune voice, add reverb and effects, (and soon) track how the singer’s isolated voice matches the pitch of the song playing. All of this has been integrated into the sound system of your new vehicle’s infotainment system, available globally with rights-cleared content – and it’s coming to a car near you.</p> <p>Several Automakers/OEMs have already discovered that karaoke is a killer app for the car, once again supplying the perfect fun and engaging activity that highlights the stunning sound and “experience centers” that next-generation vehicles are quickly becoming.</p> <p>Today’s electric and hybrid vehicles are equipped with everything from multiple crystal-clear screens and interactive voice capabilities to Dobly ATMOS. For some cars on the road, it may just be the best audio experience space a consumer owns. So why not optimize that amazing audio (and carefully managed video) experience with the fun and joy of singing your favorite songs with a built-in feature-rich microphone? That’s what some smart engineers at Stingray and Singing Machine were pondering in a product ideation session early this year. And with some input from customers, they set out to build exactly that.</p> <p>Tesla was the first, but the enhanced product is now being installed or tested in several OEMs around the world.</p> <p>One new eCar owner recently shared that Caraoke (Tesla’s karaoke brand) has become her daughter’s favorite “channel” in her Tesla S, reflexively scrolling through the menu to find her Disney favorites. Equally exciting, the proud mom shared that her daughter was spelling better, and she thinks it has to do with seeing the scrolling words and hearing her voice through the car’s speakers as she “sings her little heart out.” Transformative.</p> <p>Driving obviously presents unique safety considerations, and many OEMs strive to reduce driver distraction while in drive mode, so they disable interactive content visible by the driver during those times. Scrolling karaoke characters are only enabled during park/charge mode. But OEM partners wanted to extend the karaoke experience to the other non-drivers while in motion. So those same Stingray engineers came up with an HTML-based solution aptly called, the “Passenger App.” While the car is in motion, non-drivers in the vehicle can continue the karaoke fun by enabling a QR code link to replicate the scrolling lyrics experience on their phone, fully integrated into the in-vehicle sound system. They can also skip, FF &amp; RW, queue up a song list, and more.</p> <p>It’s always challenging to know where the next transformative digital product will come from. But, like the SmartTVs that revolutionized the industry, there’s a reasonable chance that it might just come from inside your next vehicle.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/karaoke" hreflang="en">Karaoke</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-stingray-brands field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/45" hreflang="en">Stingray Brava</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/97" hreflang="en">Stingray Classica</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/stingraycmusic" hreflang="en">Stingray CMusic</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/51" hreflang="en">Stingray Concerts</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/296" hreflang="en">Stingray Country</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/46" hreflang="en">Stingray DJAZZ</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/98" hreflang="en">Stingray Festival 4K</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/47" hreflang="en">Stingray iConcerts</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/48" hreflang="en">Stingray Karaoke</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/49" hreflang="en">Stingray Loud</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/44" hreflang="en">Stingray Music</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/99" hreflang="en">Stingray Naturescape</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/127" hreflang="en">Stingray Retro</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/52" hreflang="en">Stingray Vibe</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/products" hreflang="en">Products</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-country field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/86" hreflang="en">Worldwide</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-display-in-language field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/82" hreflang="en">English</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="https://d1epjnee0y8w64.cloudfront.net/blog/s3fs-public/2023-01/Stingray%20CES%20convention.jpg" width="1200" height="630" alt="Stingray CES Car Karaoke" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-listen field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Listen</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Wed, 04 Jan 2023 16:15:21 +0000 Stingray 1096 at http://blog.stingray.com Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal | À plein volume : Basquiat et la musique http://blog.stingray.com/musee-des-beaux-arts-de-montreal-plein-volume-basquiat-et-la-musique <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal | À plein volume : Basquiat et la musique</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Stingray</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 12/01/2022</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Nous sommes ravis de renouveler notre collaboration avec le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal pour l’exposition <em>À plein volume : Basquiat et la musique</em>, organisée conjointement avec le Musée de la musique – Philharmonie de Paris.

event brought together over 90 employees from all departments with a shared goal: working together to develop innovative solutions around the theme of Connection.  </p> <p>This topic is dear to our hearts since, after the last two virtual editions, our employees could finally gather at our offices to collaborate on technological solutions.  </p> <p>Mario Dubois, Chief Technology Officer, highlighted this long-awaited return to the office during his speech: "Today, I am happy. Happy to see people who have fun working together, to see big smiles on their faces, to see committed employees who go off the beaten path to create new things. For me, that is the Stingray vibe.”  </p> <p>For three exciting days, a dozen multi-departmental teams collaborated on various projects combining technology and creativity.  </p> <p>Alexandre Gauthier, Vice President of IT Sales, emphasized the atmosphere commanding the event: "The mood was electrifying, lively, and warm. The passion and pride of the participants were palpable; we felt a genuine desire to contribute to our micro-society. Most of the projects were very unifying." </p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube video-embed-field-responsive-video"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/blDP-Iwy-Lo?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0"></iframe> </div> <p> </p> <p>Stingray had an exclusive sponsor this year as we joined forces with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) teams, who offered their valuable expertise on cloud-related projects.  </p> <p>Scott Macdonell, Account Manager, Cloud Solutions Center for AWS, said, "I am very impressed just by how well everyone at Stingray has collaborated. Developers were able to work with the creative side, and everyone truly added value to the teams. One project that comes to mind for me at a time when everyone is talking about getting back to the office is the Employee Meal Ordering System, sponsored by Stingray. It hits at the heart of supporting local businesses that need support more than ever and shows the sense of camaraderie here at Stingray.”   </p> <p>Without further ado, we are incredibly proud to

Over on Qello, we're showcasing Beyoncé's performance filmed live at Coachella. This forever-trendy music and arts festival happens annually at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Slay Queen Bey!  </p> <p>Following these reigning artists are even more megastars like Adele, Harry Styles, and The Weeknd, coming in second with five nominations each. Qello is excited to feature Adele’s Live at Glastonbury concert, where she performs an emotional set showcasing her gratitude and warm personality.

If we know anything, it's that it's not easy to select the very best from a catalog housing thousands of tracks! Anyone who braved the stage at a karaoke party knows the challenge of picking the best song to sing. In this article, we offer a selection of some of the best karaoke songs to inspire our fellow karaoke fans.  </p> <p><span class="size-h2"><strong>Best Karaoke Songs </strong></span></p> <p><strong>“Bohemian Rhapsody” – Queen </strong></p> <p>We're starting this list off with one of the most epic Queen songs. It may not be the easiest out there to sing, but it is an indisputable karaoke classic! If you’re looking for singing advice, <a href="https://blog.stingray.com/5-tips-sing-freddie-mercury-karaoke" target="_blank" title="Read More">check out our tips</a> on how to sing like Freddie Mercury. </p> <p><strong>“I Will Survive” – Gloria Gaynor </strong></p> <p>Before you, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Selena, Gladys Knight, and other legendary artists covered this empowering song. It's crowd-pleasing with an easy, sing-along melody and lyrics. We love it! </p> <p><strong>“Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" - Wham! </strong></p> <p>Did you know that this certified platinum single features several hints to dancing? For starters, the lyric "go-go" references a dance club. The song also opens with four repetitions of the word 'Jitterbug', a popular swing dance from the 1930s.  </p> <p>Check out this <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP8_6jlOVJ8&amp;list=PLLFS4jqFaVsCVsJuuWaPdrYPnsSi6HJ9R" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank" title="Watch Here">YouTube Playlist</a> featuring compilations of some of the best karaoke tracks. </p> <p><span class="size-h2"><strong>Easy Karaoke Songs </strong></span></p> <p><strong>“I Want It That Way” - The Backstreet Boys </strong></p> <p>Calling all boy band fans out there! 'I Want It That Way' is a fun and easy go-to song that the crowd can't help singing along with you. Even though the lyrics don't make much sense, it's the ultimate 2000s hit!  </p> <p><strong>“Stand by Me” - Ben E. King </strong></p> <p>Look no further than this karaoke classic if you want to declare your undying love to your better half. To perfect your performance and get interpretation inspiration, you can check out the covers of Florence and the Machine, John Lennon, or Otis Redding.  </p> <p><strong>“Wonderwall” – Oasis </strong></p> <p>There's always one guy at the party picking up the guitar to play 'Wonderwall', but this notorious bonfire hymn is also synonymous with the karaoke scene. Today is gonna be the day you add it to your songs queue (link to the SMC store landing page). </p> <p><span class="size-h1"><strong>Best Duet Karaoke Songs </strong></span></p> <p><strong>“You’re The One That I Want” - John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John </strong></p> <p>Looking for an easy duet? This fun and upbeat pick is so singable you can probably look away from the lyric prompts. Go ahead and slick your hair back, put on your leather jacket, and belt this one out to the crowd! </p> <p><strong>“Shallow” – Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper </strong></p> <p>It took Lady Gaga and British-American producer Mark Ronson only four hours to write "Shallow." It won a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance. Not only that, but this lead single from the soundtrack 'A Star Is Born' also went on to win the Golden Globe award for Best Original Song - Motion Picture and the Oscar for Best Original Song. Now, it's your turn to shine with the karaoke version of 'Shallow'. </p> <p><strong>“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” - Elton John and Kiki Dee </strong></p> <p>We're closing this list of the best karaoke songs of all time with a karaoke classic: 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart' by Elton John and Kiki Dee.
