This article discusses how to select a decent home karaoke system jukebox for your dream house.

This is how it began.

Due to the pandemic, I have visited neither the KTVs, theatres nor other confined entertainment venues in the last two years.

Watching blockbusters can indeed be a form of entertainment at home, but there’s nothing to be compared with singing karaoke sessions, especially with family members!

Most of all!

After such a long period without singing wholeheartedly, my throat is definitely itching to sing.

And yes, there are plenty of singing applications available everywhere, but it’s just not the same!

To avoid counting beans on my lazy sofas, I decided to get myself a home karaoke set and let my family entertain themselves a little!

However, a search on the e-commerce platform reveals a plethora of brands and models that have me dazzled and unsure of which to choose.

So, after long hours of comparing between the jukebox from various brands, there’re certain highlights to have a closer look at when one plans to get their hands on their very first karaoke system.

Storage Method, Size & What Are The Extra of It?

First and foremost, one of the factors to be considered is the type of storage the karaoke system jukebox provides. 

Various businesses are storing files and larger data than ever before, a trend that is expected to continue. 

As a result, storage has become a critical component of modern IT infrastructure, including the storing methodology for a karaoke system jukebox. 

However, while adequate storage space solves one issue, there are others that must be addressed. Files and data must be fully secure, coordinated, and easily, and readily accessible.

There are myriad storage options available today, including local storage and cloud storage platforms.

The key contrast between local storage and cloud storage is that a server is a physical device/program that provides solutions to client machines (karaoke system jukebox) in a network based on their queries, whereas a storage device is a component in a computing device (karaoke system jukebox) that stores data (music videos) for long-term access.

Local Storage vs Cloud Storage

In Malaysia’s karaoke system market field, the trends offer three types of storage: local storage, cloud storage, and local-cloud storage.

In a nutshell, examples of local storage include the hard disc in each jukebox, which can be thought of as an offline method of storing information, in this case, music videos. 

On the other hand, cloud storage should be regarded as an online method of storing music videos, whereas local-cloud storage will be a hybrid of the two methods mentioned.

There are a few factors to consider when it comes to local storage.

First, consider the storage capacity.

Based on the karaoke marketplace today, most of the sizes available in a karaoke system jukebox are most likely 2 Terabytes (TB) or 4 TB.

As it appears, the larger the file capacity, the greater the amount of music video that can be stored in it in comparison to the smaller size.

As a result, a 4 TB hard disc will be more favorable compared with a 2 TB’s.

NEXT, the cloud storage method, means that all the files will be uploaded and stored in the cloud.

Cloud is now the go-to IT infrastructure and is used by businesses and individuals for all manner of purposes, including running critical applications, data analytics, automation, IoT, app development, and storing data.

By linking back to our topic, it means that the music video will be uploaded and stored in the cloud, and when it is required based on demand, it can be retrieved and accessed on related devices, in layman’s terms, the user can download it their desired music video accordingly from the karaoke system jukebox.

Both local storage and cloud storage has their own pros & cons, and it seems reliable on both sides of the coin, isn’t it?

Yet, for local storage, what happens when there are new music videos updated from time to time?

The duration of having a new music video to be available keeps getting shorter through time, implying that there will be a massive number of new updates to be available from time to time, yet, (by focusing back to our topic) if the karaoke system jukebox only includes the local storage, either SSD or HDD, the music video list will just remain as it is with no updates.

This will be a problem for the users, isn’t it?

Who wouldn’t love to have the most recent Justin Bieber or Jay Chou songs on their playlist?

So, what happens next?

Users will be required to return their jukebox to their supplier on a regular basis to receive updates, and with current market conditions, such a process usually takes days to complete because there are too many music videos to insert in.

Isn’t it true that this side of the story isn’t particularly convenient?

WHAT IF?

What if we only use the cloud storage method for storage?

Let us investigate further.

Aside from its benefits, there is a simple question, a situation, a condition that the majors face all the time: What happens when the internet connection fails to work? 

Isn’t that all there is to it?

That is, despite the ease of access, you will not receive any music videos, and you will not even be able to sing a song if there is no internet available in real time.

Harsh, isn’t it?

Despite the fact that both methods have various advantages, their disadvantages are far too significant to be implemented in the jukebox as a storage solution in these days.

This is where the third method, Local-Cloud Hybrid Storage, comes in.

Combining both of the aforementioned methods, when it comes to offline mode, the local storage will play its part to store and provide the necessary music videos to the users, whereas when it comes to the part where the music videos demanded are not available, or in this manner the latest updated music videos, this is where the cloud storages come in, where all the music videos will be stored in the vast capacity of the cloud, and when demanded, providing and allocating for the users to retrieve the necessary music videos.

Simultaneously, this method also solved the issues of having a limited storage capacity as the major of the music videos will be available in the cloud, readily accessible, to all the users from any time, anywhere.

As the number of the music videos is growing per second, the size of storage capacity will also need to accustom to it, and as the major storage will be on the cloud, there won’t be any issues of 

I am not having enough space for my new songs!

Hence, in a nutshell, among the conventional and even the nowadays methodology proposed as the storage method for a karaoke system jukebox, it seems like the Local-Cloud Hybrid possessed the win-win solutions as the best in terms of overall performance

Meaning to say that it will be a favorable method to pursue as the “next” coming karaoke system jukebox in the line.

And that’s it?

NOT THAT FAST!

Other than the storage method discussed, the details that need to take notes will be the type of “local” storage provided in this Local-Cloud Hybrid form. In terms of the “local”, the storage norm to be found in the market will be the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and Solid-State Drive (SSD).

When it comes to speed,

SSD outperforms HDD

The data would move faster, and the karaoke system jukebox’s overall performance would improve.

This will eventually increase its lifespan.

Why only the “local”? What about the type of storage in the “cloud”?

In terms of retrieving data from the cloud, the major factor that will affect the performance of the karaoke system jukebox will be depending on the downloading speed accordingly to the user respectively.

As a result, as long as the internet coverage and speed are adequate, there won’t be any issues when it comes to performing any downloading in real-time.

As a hybrid of the conventional and the modern technology, KaraBest Karaoke System Malaysia proudly unveiled their

KaraBest KB KOD8K Professional Karaoke System Jukebox

where it implements the Local-Cloud Hybrid Storage method as the prime solution to store their music videos in both hard disc and cloud.

When it’s offline, it plays the music videos directly from the hard disc, and when it’s not available, users get the music videos from their music video libraries online from their private and local cloud.

And this leads to the final question of this article, 

Again, WHAT IF?

You’d spent much time reading up to this moment … 

What if there’s a way to keep your storage clean and tidy, yet performing at its best self at all times? 

What if there is a feature to implement into the karaoke system jukebox, to make sure that 

I am in control of my own jukebox or

This jukebox is MINE?

Fret not, this model of KaraBest KB KOD8K Professional Karaoke System jukebox integrates an in-housed programmed feature of

Artificial Intelligence Enhanced Smart Cleaning 

into their karaoke system jukebox.

In which, it is a humane programmed jukebox that will read the playlist of each user, and safe track their music videos accordingly, and when there is any music video that is not desired to play for any reason, it will assist to remove and store back up to their private cloud, easing your hard disc, not consuming redundant capacity, and allow it to perform at their best performance.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what to look into when selecting a karaoke system.

Let’s continue our trip in the next articles.

See you soon!
