We are excited to unveil the significant improvements that we've made to our Beamz hardware and our apps at this year's NAMM Show."
During 2014 NAMM (Anaheim Convention Center, Hall A, Booth# 6286), Beamz Interactive will demonstrate the new Beamz product line, which allows people of all ages to experience the fun and excitement of creating interactive music by simply moving their hands through laser beams. Utilizing Beamz Interactive's proprietary technology, users can create custom remixes of some of today's most popular songs, then instantly record and share their songs with friends. The latest generation Beamz controllers are also MIDI compliant, which provides many innovative opportunities for the Beamz to be used as an input and/or performance device working with the broad range of MIDI applications available for consumers and musicians.
"Interactive music and products powered by Beamz technology provide music retailers new revenue opportunities in their storefronts and in outreach to their communities," said Al Ingallinera, Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive. "Beamz is an innovative recreational music making product that provides unique opportunities for musicians and non-musicians using interactive music. In addition to bringing new consumers into music making, Beamz provides extraordinary opportunities in education, therapy applications and serving kids with special needs. We are also devoting significant resources to raising our brand awareness, in addition to leveraging our partnership and product endorsement with Flo Rida."
Through Beamz Interactive's partnership with Flo Rida, the Beamz by Flo product line features Flo Rida's latest songs and chart-topping hits. Flo Rida was named a Billboard Top 100 Artist for 2013 and is the best-selling digital hip-hop artist in the world, with over 600 million video views on YouTube.
Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz, added, "As we demonstrate our technology at NAMM, not only are we seeking to increase our product awareness, Beamz is also seeking to partner with distribution partners now that our products are completed and shipping to consumers. In addition to our hardware, by downloading our latest apps for iPhone and iPad consumers can now seamlessly play and record songs on-the-fly on their mobile devices, in a similar manner to moving their hands through the laser beams of our proprietary Beamz music player."
The Beamz apps include built-in functionality for users to purchase additional songs of their favorite artists, either individually or in bundles. Each Beamz app also has the ability to play hit music videos while the audio is manipulated by the user with various custom sound effects. Currently available on iPhone and iPad, the Beamz apps are expected on other mobile operating systems beginning in early 2014.
