中国音乐零售业前景光明

和国内唱片销售的惨淡经营不同,中国音乐零售业的前景还是十分光明的。

作为Muzak和DMX的母公司,加拿大的MoodMedia日前宣布和全球时尚品牌Esprit合作,将在这个月在中国大陆地区的Esprit店铺开始custom music项目。

此次合作将把传统的CD播放器系统升级成为Mood Media的IP地址播放系统,这将使Esprit的店铺能够即时更新播放列表,而不用花上几周甚至几个月等待德国总部把CD邮寄到中国。

Esprit中国的CEOHolly Li对此评价:“这节约了大量时间,还给我们提供了更多的音乐”。

While the retail prospects for music recordings in China are bleak at best, the future of music in retail are brighter than ever. This is particularly true as Chinese consumers become increasingly sophisticated and both Western and Chinese brands seek new ways to attract their attention and provide an increasingly experiential environment. Combined with growing copyright awareness and enforcement in the coming years, providing custom music solutions for retail outlets is likely to become a bonanza for Chinese company's such as 2Muse, which provides in-store music for Converse, as well as fast-acting Western firms.

Mood Media, parent company of Muzak and DMX, and one of Canada's fastest-growing companies, announced that global fashion brand Esprit would be incorporating its custom music program in its mainland Chinese stores starting this month.

One advantage for Mood Media was its ability to meet Esprit's requirement of a PCI compliant provider with a China Compulsory Certificate. The upgrade from its current CD player system to Mood Media's IP-based media player will allow Esprit to instantly refresh its playlists — a process in the past that could take several weeks to months by sending CD updates through the mail from Esprit’s headquarters in Germany to China.

"The solution is saving us time, while also providing us with access to one of the most expansive music libraries in the world," noted Holly Li, CEO, Esprit China. With the Chinese economy slowing, that seems like a compelling argument for any brand in China's no-holds-bar competitive retail market.
