MENOMONEE FALLS, WI -- Pioneer Sales & Service hosted a seminar for the AMI Entertainment Network at its headquarters here in late August. More than 50 representatives of 25 amusement operating companies attended, some traveling from as far as 300 miles away. The service school was conducted by AMI's Bryan Aune, Dave Kibbe and Kapil Mistry. The school covered hardware, software updates and system enhancements.

The event gave area operators the chance to get a closer look at the new AMI jukeboxes introduced at this spring's Amusement Expo International in Las Vegas, including the NGX Ultra dual-screen model optimized for music videos and the NGX Mini 2, an improved version of AMI's popular compact box that can be expanded to support music video. Both support music selections made with AMI's BarLink mobile app on Android and iOS devices. They also accommodate optional trackball-and-button controls to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. | SEE STORY

The seminar included hands-on demonstrations of AMI's operator website, the Ad Manager remote content scheduling application, ways of installing a jukebox to provide multiple zones of music and with creating user security levels. Operators also learned how to wire speakers with subwoofers and install multiple television receivers on location to display music videos and advertising content.

"Everyone walked away with more information on how to use all the AMI features to earn more money," said Pioneer owner Jonathan Kleiman. The seminar was highlighted by a luncheon and the opportunity to win attractive door prizes, including a 43" television, an AMI music video kit, gift cards, t-shirts and hats.

Pioneer, established in 1962, is a distributor of amusement games, vending machines, ATMs and jukeboxes. It serves Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan with new and used equipment sales, backed by parts and service support.
