Ed Chermak, jukebox, TouchTunes MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- Legacy Coin-Operated Distributors Inc. is manufacturing and marketing an add-on stand designed specifically for TouchTunes' Virtuo "smart" jukebox. The peripheral not only turns the wall-mounted unit into a freestanding jukebox, but also enhances many of Virtuo's services. Operators can deploy the stand in several ways.

The stands in Legacy's Song Bird Sound Center line come with built-in sound systems plus midrange speakers and sub-woofers. Measuring only 29" deep x 45" wide x 74" high, they are constructed of heavy-duty steel coated with tough Rhino Lining to protect them from wear and tear. One model incorporates TouchTunes' proprietary dye-sublimation printer that supports the juke's Photo Booth feature.

"What we're trying to do is take the traditional wallbox and convert it into a true floor box," said Legacy's Ed Chermak. "We like to call it a 'three in one' because it's taking three different functions -- floor box, printer and stand -- and incorporating them into a single unit."

Song Bird stands are available for retrofitting to existing TouchTunes jukes or pre-configured by Legacy. They offer operators additional options for location placement. An optional advertising display allows operators and locations to create and run in-house ads and promotions for leagues, bar specials, menus, events and more. The display is programmed to show instructions for Virtuo's Photo Booth and Karaoke services.

Formed last year, South Carolina's Legacy Coin-Operated Distributors Inc. was born out of the former Green Coin Machine Distributor Co. and is headed by Chermak and Thomas O'Neil Anderson. Call (800) 232-6467 or (843) 626-1900, or visit legacydist.com for more information.
