Abstract

The music box plays a random title when there is no selected title. Title selection is performed via a touch screen (1.1) and graphical display is performed on a monitor. Titles are searched for and advertisements can be blended into the visual display. Two titles can be played simultaneously.

Description

Die Erfindung betrifft eine neue Art von Musik-Jukebox, die nicht auf einem normalen CD-Player mit Wechslersystem, sondern auf einem PC beruht, der sowohl die Funktionen des CD-Players als auch die des Wechslersystems ersetzt und außerdem eine Vielzahl von neuen Möglichkeiten eröffnet. The invention relates to a new type of music jukebox that is not based on a standard CD player with changer system, but on a PC, which replaces both the functions of the CD player and that of the changer system and also a variety of new possibilities opened ,

Die zum Stand der Technik gehörenden Jukeboxen benutzen CD-Wechslersysteme und eine Elektronik mit deren Hilfe es möglich ist, mehrere Titel, welche durch die zugehörige CD- und Tracknummer identifiziert werden, einzugeben, und diese daraufhin nacheinander abspielen zu lassen. Belonging to the state of the art jukeboxes use CD changer systems and electronics with which it is possible to enter several titles, which are identified by the associated CD and track number, and then to have them play one after another. Die Liste mit den verfügbaren Musik- Titeln ist entweder in Listenform oder als CD Cover am Gerät angebracht. The list of available music titles is mounted either in list form or as a CD cover on the unit. Die Jukeboxen können auch ein Lautsprecher und Verstärkersystem beinhalten. The jukeboxes can also include a speaker and amplifier system. Die CDs, sowie die dazugehörigen Titellisten müssen von Hand ausgetauscht werden. The CDs, as well as related playlists must be replaced by hand. Wenn kein Lied gewünscht wurde spielt die Jukebox auch kein Lied. If a song was desired, the Jukebox plays no song.

Mit dem derzeitigen Stand der Technik kann nicht nach Titeln, bzw. Interpreten gezielt gesucht werden. With the current state of technology can not by title, artist or be searched. Es entsteht eine Wechselzeit, die einige Sekunden betragen kann. The result is a changing time, which may be a few seconds. Die Titelauswahl ist an CDs gebunden, was bedeutet, daß sie nicht beliebig zusammengestellt werden kann. Stock selection is bound to CDs, which means that it can not be arranged arbitrarily. Für Diskotheken sind diese Geräte durch die langen Wechselzeiten zwischen den Titeln und die Unfähigkeit, mehrere Titel gleichzeitig abzuspielen vollkommen ungeeignet. For nightclubs, these devices are through the long changeover times between songs and the inability to play multiple songs completely unsuitable. Denn dadurch ist es unmöglich, mehrere Titel zu mischen, oder von einem Titel in einen anderen überzublenden, was gerade für den Betrieb in Diskotheken notwendig wäre. Because that it is impossible to mix multiple tracks, or from one title to another crossfade what is needed just to operate in nightclubs.

Ein weiterer großer Nachteil des heutigen Standes der Technik ist, daß es für einen Gast möglich ist, die Musikrichtung für längere Zeit vorzugeben, da seine Wünsche direkt hintereinander gespielt werden. Another major disadvantage of the present state of the art that it is possible for a guest to specify the type of music for a long time, since his wishes are played back to back.

Da eine solche Jukebox zum großen Teil aus mechanischen Teilen besteht, bedeutet dies einen raschen Verschleiß des Geräts. Since such a Jukebox consists of mechanical parts for the most part, this means a rapid wear of the device. Die Titelaktualisierung wird durch die Änderung des Inhaltsverzeichnisses und dem kompletten Austausch einer ganzen CD erschwert. The title update is complicated table of contents and the complete replacement of an entire CD by the change. Die herkömmlichen Jukeboxen haben eine begrenzte CD Verwaltung von ca. 100 CDs. The conventional jukeboxes have a limited CD administration of approximately 100 CDs. Reparaturen gestalten sich aufwendig, da es kaum genormte Teile gibt. Repairs make up consuming because there are hardly any standardized parts. Die Bedienung ist meistens nicht sehr benutzerfreundlich und kompliziert. The operation is usually not very user-friendly and complicated.

Es ist daher Aufgabe der Erfindung eine Jukebox zu schaffen, die es nicht nur ermöglicht, die Titelsuche zu vereinfangen, die Wechselzeit zwischen den einzelnen Titeln zu minimieren und die Aktualisierung zu vereinfachen, sondern sich auch durch kleine Umkonfigurationen als "besserer" CD-Player z. It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a jukebox, which not only makes it possible to standardize catch the title search to minimize the changeover time between songs and simplify the upgrade, but also by small reconfigurations as "better" CD player for , B. für Disk Jockeys eignet. As for deejays suitable. Die Erfindung soll vor allem in Gaststätten zur Musikuntermalung und in Diskos als CD- Player Ersatz eingesetzt werden. The invention is mainly used in restaurants for background music and discos as CD player replacement.

Diese Aufgabe wird mit den Merkmalen des Anspruches 1 gelöst. This object is achieved with the features of claim 1. Die weiteren Ausgestaltungen der erfindungsgemäßen Jukebox sind in den Unteransprüchen enthalten. The further refinements of Jukebox invention are contained in the dependent claims.

Der Betreiber des Geräts ist nicht an die feste Titelzusammenstellung und Reihenfolge der Titel auf handelsüblichen Musik-CDs gebunden. The operator of the device is not bound to the solid compilation of tracks and order of tracks on commercially available music CDs. Es ist möglich, nur bestimmte Titel von CDs zu übernehmen. It is possible to assume only certain tracks from CDs.

Es ist möglich, Musiktitel gezielt zu suchen und diese in eine theoretisch beliebig lange Wunschliste zu übernehmen. It is possible to search for songs specifically and to incorporate them into a theoretically arbitrarily long wish list. Wenn keine Titel in der Wunschliste stehen, kann das Gerät zufällig ausgewählte Titel abspielen oder einem vom Betreiber vorher vorgegebenen Programm folgen. If no tracks are unwrapped, the device can play randomly selected track or follow a previously specified by the user program.

Ebenfalls ist es möglich, zwischen zwei Wunschtiteln einen oder mehrere zufällige Titel abspielen zu lassen, wodurch eine zu starke Beeinflussung der Musikrichtung durch Gäste verhindert werden kann. It is also possible to have one or more random title play between two desired titles, making too much influence on the genre can be prevented by guests.

Die Anzahl der im Gerät gespeicherten Titel ist nur durch die Speicherkapazität der im Rechnersystem verwendeten Festplatten begrenzt. The number of titles stored in the device is limited only by the storage capacity of the hard drive in the computer system. Dadurch lassen sich theoretisch beliebig viele Titel in der Jukebox speichern. This, in theory, any of the songs stored in the jukebox.

Das Gerät ist durch den Einsatz eines sogenannten "Touchscreens" sehr einfach gestaltet, da die Titelnamen so auf einer "Bildschirmtastatur" eingegeben werden können. The device is simple through the use of a so-called "touch screen", as the title name can be entered on a "virtual keyboard" that way.

Eine manuelle Aktualisierung der Titelliste entfällt komplett, da das Gerät alle Änderungen der Titelzusammenstellung sofort in die Auswahlliste übernimmt. Manually update the track list is no longer required because the device assumes all changes in the compilation of tracks immediately to the selection list. Da bei dieser Jukebox auf mechanische Teile so weit wie möglich verzichtet wird, und nur handelsübliche und genormte PC-Teile Verwendung finden, gestalten sich anfallende Reparaturen einfach und schnell. Since no as far as possible in this jukebox on mechanical parts, and find only commercially available and standardized PC components using, make yourself necessary repairs quickly and easily.

Die oben genannte Wechselzeit bei bisherigen Jukeboxen reduziert sich bei diesem Gerät durch die Verwendung von Computertechnologie und den Verzicht auf mechanische Wechslersysteme nahezu auf Null. The above-mentioned change time in previous jukeboxes is reduced in this apparatus by the use of computer technology and the elimination of mechanical systems for changing to almost zero.

Dadurch und durch die Möglichkeit, mehrere Titel gleichzeitig abzuspielen, auf zwei verschiedenen Ausgängen auszugeben und dann mit einem Mischpult beliebig zu mischen, eignet sich diese neue Jukebox ebenfalls für den Einsatz in Diskotheken. This, and the ability to play multiple songs to spend on two different outputs and then to mix and to a mixer, this new Jukebox is also suitable for use in nightclubs. Die Erfindung bietet ein großes Einsatzspektrum, z. The invention provides a wide range of applications such. B. in Musikläden zum Probehören von Liedern. As in music stores at the listening of songs.

Die Erfindung wird Mithilfe eines PCs gelöst, der in einem Gehäuse ( Fig. 1) untergebracht ist. The invention is accomplished using one of a PC in a housing (Fig. 1) is housed. Die Bedienung erfolgt über ein Touch Screen ( 1.1 ) der die Programmoberfläche ( Fig. 2) darstellt. It is operated via a touch screen (1.1) of the user interface (Fig. 2) represents. In der Liste ( 2.1 ) kann der Benutzer sämtliche verfügbaren Titel durchblättern, die Wahlweise nach "Gruppe" oder "Titel" geordnet sind. In the list (2.1), the user can scroll through all the available titles, Optional for "group" or "Title" are ordered. Auf Wunsch kann auch gezielt nach einem Titel oder einer Gruppe gesucht werden, indem man über die Bildschirmtastatur ( 2.2 ) den Namen in die dafür vorgesehene Eingabemaske ( 2.3 ) eingibt. Upon request by the onscreen keyboard (2.2) the name in the designated input form (2.3) can even search for a title or a group enters. Während der Eingabe wird die Position der Liste ( 2.1 ) entsprechend aktualisiert, was ein schnelleres Finden von bestimmten Liedern ermöglicht. The position of the list (2.1) will be updated as you type, allowing a faster finding specific songs. Mit dem Button ( 2.4 ) kann man nun das Ausgewählte Lied in die Wunschliste ( 2.5 ) übernehmen. With the button (2.4) can now take over the selected song to the wish list (2.5). Die Lieder die in der Wunschliste sind, werden nacheinander gespielt. The songs are unwrapped, to be played in sequence. Oben auf dem Bildschirm ( 2.6 ) wird groß die aktuelle Gruppe und der Titel angezeigt. Top of the screen (2.6) the current group and the title is displayed large. Die Gesamtzeit und die Restzeit werden in einem Informationsfeld ( 2.7 ) angezeigt. The total time and remaining time are displayed in an information field (2.7).

Wenn keine Wunschlieder vorliegen können Zufallslieder gespielt werden. Random songs can be played if no request songs available. Dies ist auch zwischen den einzelnen Wunschliedern möglich. This is also possible between the individual request songs. Die Zufallswiedergabe kann teilweise beeinflußt werden, indem man Prioritäten setzen kann, welche Lieder öfters gespielt werden sollen. The Shuffle can be partially influenced by setting priorities, what songs will be played repeatedly. Zur Zeit gibt es 10 unterschiedliche Prioritäten, von 1 = Normal bis 10 = 10 mal so oft wie Normal. Currently there are 10 different priorities, ranging from 1 = normal to 10 = 10 times as often as normal.

Der Gastwirt hat die Möglichkeit einzelne Lieder zu sperren, ohne sie gleich vom System entfernen zu müssen. The landlord has the ability to block individual songs without having to remove the same by the system.

Es ist denkbar, das Programm so zu erweitern, daß man die Lieder über ein Mischpult starten kann, was für den Einsatz in Diskotheken von Vorteil wäre. It is conceivable to expand the program so that you can start the songs via a mixer, which would be suitable for use in nightclubs beneficial.
