In todays world entertainment industry is booming like never before.acc to Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI),the Indian entertainment industry grew 17% over the previous year, reaching the Rs50,000 crore mark,whereas the report forecasts sustained growth for the next five years, estimating that the industry will grow to an overall size of Rs1.16 trillion by 2012.
According to the PwC report, the Indian music industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4 per cent from US$ 1.81 billion in 2006
to US$ 2.19 billion in 2011. Significantly, the share of digital music is likely to increase, with an estimated growth rate of 25 per cent.
Digital music sales exceeded physical sales of music for the first time in 2006, primarily driven by mobile
phone platforms like caller ring back tones, ring tones and music clips.
The surge in mobile sales has helped India emerge as one of the world's largest markets for mobile music.
According to the Cellular Operators' Association of India, the size of the mobile music industry is likely to grow to around
US$ 170 million by the end of 2007, from about US$ 115 million in 2006
The music industry in USA contributes about 5% to its GDP annually.
What persuaded us to work upon this sector,is that now-a-days music and socializing is the most likely mode for people
to refresh themselves,this is mostly seen in the young generation of India.the other mode for them is their cell phone
which has become and indispensable part of our lives,we have made an attempt to combine cell phones and music entertainment
in such a manner that a totally new service can be provided and a totally new concept is put forth before the mass.
And the other main important thing for people in todays world is ultra quick service,many customers can be won if you have a
quick and precise service.
The service which we would provide is called the ‘Pro-Box’,which is just an ordinary interactive kiosk with extraordinary features.
The ‘Pro-Box’ will not only prove to be a hit amongst the youth but also the corporates in future and will set a bench-mark in terms of entertainment.

Location –
The ‘Pro-Box’ is a high end interactive kiosk,which needs sophisticated handling, hence it is not suitable to position it
anywhere and everywhere like a local PCO.
It can be installed in places such as malls,hotels,cafeterias,clubs,eateries,restaurants,movie theatres,colleges, etc where
the crowd using the system is educated enough to understand the workings of the ‘Pro-Box’.
It can also be installed at railway stations but the main thing being there are many chances of theft as well as mis-handling
of the machine.Railway stations are the most effective locations where the ‘Pro-Box’ is most useful !
