Nashville, Tennessee…December 29, 2006…Gibson Guitar, the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturer and leader in music technology announced today that the company is developing a suite of services and technologies that will promote and expand the utility of a new High-Definition audio format for the recording industry. The suite of capabilities called Take Anywhere Technology, ensures that high resolution multi-channel lossless audio is available to consumers on physical discs, and makes that content portable and optimized for digital listening environments such as mobile, computing and portable use.
Gibson is also developing services that will extend the consumer benefits of the High-Definition audio format and also provide additional security to the networking ecosystem. There is great potential in a new High-Definition format and Gibson intends to provide its extensive expertise to support the format’s introduction and growth throughout the worldwide music industry.
