In addition to Overhead.fm’s webapp, iOS app, and Android app, we have long offered a dedicated wifi tablet for businesses that would prefer to not bring their own device. Today, our tablet is joined by a new sibling designed to specifically address the needs of larger enterprises.
The headless player is a small device that connects to your existing wired network via an on-board ethernet jack and connects to you amplifier using a standard 3.5mm port. The headless player is pre-configured before it leaves the Overhead.fm office. A customer need only connect the player to power, internet, and an amplifier, and it will automatically power on and start playing music as scheduled. Like other subsidiary accounts, these players can be controlled remotely using Overhead.fm’s scheduling interface.
By design, the headless player does not include a display. We expect most enterprise customers will install these players in audio cabinets without a display and control the players entirely remotely, though we do include an HDMI jack and USB ports for maximum flexibility.
Unlike most dedicated music players, the Overhead.fm player receives updates automatically over the internet, so any new features added to Overhead.fm are immediately available on installed players.
In recent weeks, Overhead.fm has been testing the headless player with select businesses across the country, and today it is ready for general availability. The headless player sells for $74.95 including free shipping. To order a headless player, please contact your Overhead.fm representative.
