Keep your customers entertained and informed during their visit. Our audio and visual solutions allow you to play a wide range of background music and music videos, as well as inform your customers with on screen messaging and adverts.
Music videos provide visual interest for your customers, helping to encourage further spending. Marzipan Video allows you to combine the best selection of commercial music videos, music playlists and screen ads to suit your particular hotel clientele.
Our music videos are licensed for commercial use in hotels and other accommodation types, and our knowledgeable staff can advise you on performance licensing, so that you can be sure everything you show is fully legal. Copyright of any adverts you create remains yours, putting you in control.
Marzipan Video allows you to update your devices from anywhere. Login to easily manage or create playlists. Create brand consistency across all your venues and manage everything from any location.
Studies have shown that screen media can lead to as many as a third of consumers making unplanned purchases, and that almost half of consumers said they would prefer to shop in a store with a video display. Harness these positive results for your own business with our screen media solution.
Hotels and accommodation providers with screens are perceived as being more modern, especially with younger consumers. Screens can also be an excellent way to adjust your brand feel, and keep it fluid through easy changes.
Schedule music videos and/or your video adverts to suit different times of the day. Use our playlists or build your own. Control your videos across as many locations as you like.

MARZIPAN VIDEO allows you to add tailored commercial audio adverts and messages recorded from your smart phone to steer customers towards services that give you maximum profitability.
These can be added to your schedule planner to play every nth track of your background music playlist or at specific times of the day e.g. 2 for 1 special offer or last orders at the bar.
Just click ‘Build Solution’ to start promoting your products to your customers to increase your revenue
MARZIPAN VIDEO’s scheduling feature lets you tailor the commercial adverts and background music videos to fit your hotel perfectly. By working with playlists with different energy levels or emotions, you can adapt videos throughout the day to meet your changing needs. You can play adverts for specific times of year such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother's Day, etc.
As an example, some organisations play upbeat music videos to the staff before the opening to get them in the right frame of mind.
No problem! Just click the ‘Build Solution’ button and select what equipment you require once you've told us what you wish to play in your venue.
And if you don't have an installers cable of fitting the equipment you purchase then you can schedule one of our MARZIPAN VIDEO installation teams to ensure your new hotel or accommodation music system is working as it should.
All our services are 100% legal for business use and if you are only using your own advertising content on the screens then you do not need any further licences. If you wish to use music videos, however, you will also require performance licences in addition to the licenses that we hold to enable us to supply you. In the UK your licences need to come from PRS and VPL, but each country has its own licensing bodies.
The first 30 days are completely free. Should you choose to continue, you will be charged on a monthly basis, with the cost depending on the package selected. You will find details on our pricing page. There are no hidden charges; any extras (such as bespoke profiling services) are only added if you choose to add them.
If you want to use the service in more than one site, or if you are interested in taking an extended contract, get in touch and we’ll tell you about the discounts that are available.
No: our software is always free to download and the music is completely free for the 30 days of the trial. There are no hidden charges.
Your trial will automatically roll into the first month of full service if you don’t cancel before the end of the trial. At that point your card will be charged for the first month.
Just drop us an email to tell us that you would like your service to stop, and we will reply to confirm receipt (please look out for this so that you know we have seen your email, and give us a call if it doesn’t arrive). If you have paid for the service then you can obviously continue using the player until the end of your paid period. We would always appreciate some feedback on why you feel the service isn’t right for your business; you may find we offer additional services that would be more suitable, so do give us a call to discuss what options are available to you.
By default you only pay for a month at a time, and can cancel at any time before the next payment is taken. We do offer discounted rates for longer contracts so some clients will choose to sign up for longer periods, but this would only happen if you call us to ask for an extended plan.
You will need an Internet-connected device running Windows or Android, plus at least one screen; this can be a monitor or TV depending on the needs and budget of the business. If your content has an audio track (e.g. music videos) that you want to be heard then you would also need an amplifier and speakers. We recommend that the device used to run the player should be a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a Media Box but any Windows or Android system should be fine, as long as it has the ability to install the software and enough storage space for the content you want to play – as a guide, an average music video takes between 40 and 90MB so a system with 300 videos would need up to around 30GB of available storage space. File size of screen advertising content varies massively depending on the type of content, definition etc. The Internet connection is required during the initial setup but does not need to be present at all times and we have some clients who only connect their device to the Internet once a month to collect any content updates.
Once you have signed up for the service, go onto the device that you will be using to play the content. For Windows users, go to marzipanmedia.com and login using the details given in your welcome email. On the welcome page, click ‘Download Player’ and run the installer. Android users can find the app in the Android Playstore and just click the ‘Install’ button. Simple!
Our client helpline is manned by customer care/studio staff from 9am-9pm, 7 days, and their troubleshooting can solve most client issues. In addition to this, we have a network of engineers who can carry out installations and equipment maintenance.
Our music video catalogue is regularly updated with all the latest chart releases and these are available to any music video client. For screen media content, you can prepare basic slides on your own PC, ask an advertising agency to produce content for you, or have us produce content on your behalf. Charges for advert production are agreed on an individual basis once we have an understanding of what sort of content you require.
Adding screen media content is extremely simple. If you are going to be changing your content regularly then we can give you a portal through which you can upload your content directly. If you’re only likely to change your visuals occasionally, they can be emailed to us and we’ll load them onto your account. Once the content is uploaded, you can programme it into your profile by going into the profile editor and selecting the items you require in the adverts or messages sections. Alternatively, we can do this for you, if you don’t want to do it yourself.
Yes, one login can give you access to multiple accounts, whether that is multiple systems used in one site (e.g. one music and one video, or three accounts for different areas of a venue), or multiple venues.
