Music Industry News - as it happens

In what it calls a "preemptive strike," Tao Group has acquired SSEYO, an innovator in wireless interactive audio which is also the developer of the low bandwidth KOAN music-making technology, pioneered by Brian Eno (now a board member), among others.

Eno says, "The Tao/SSEYO merger will create new opportunities for musicians, artists and mobile phone developers. SSEYO's new vector audio technology can produce high-quality audio from very small amounts of data - and Koan's proven music engine offers users a whole new level of interactivity."

SSEYO uses breakthrough text-based 'vector audio' and 'cooking' techniques to create consistent sound from as little as 10 bytes of data and from a software footprint as small as 60 Kb.

Tao develops a, "binary portable, language independent, high performance, multimedia platform that is now used by many of the world's leading OEMs in their client products for home and mobile networks," it says. "SSEYO have been working with intent for a long time, and the Koan audio technologies are a natural fit with intent, adding that the combination means Tao will have, "the very best in both sound and graphics, and can offer even stronger solutions to the OCPA as they deliver a solution that will generate further global leadership."

Tao technologies are at the heart of the OCPA, a global standards body with more than 60 members, most of them blue chip technology companies, and the OCPA is supporting intent as a common contents platform for consumer devices.

"Audio, whilst already extremely important in Tao's markets, will become increasingly critical in the mobile space over the next 18 months in client devices as the interactive services mature from carriers. This preemptive strike by Tao means that it has positioned itself perfectly to benefit both itself and its customers from the highly advanced technologies developed by SSEYO's world-class engineering team that will now operate out of Tao headquarters."

Toru Chiba, group deputy general manager of Sharp's Corporate R&D Group said, "The merging of SSEYO with Tao is extremely important. SSEYO has wonderful engineers and technologies so now the intent platform is going to have the very best in Java technologies, sound and graphics all on a single software solution."
