DJ With Your Cellphone Monday 27 November 2000 PDF Print Marylebone Media Relations SSEYO music tools lead the advance of "Koan" enabled wireless devices BRACKNELL, UK - 27th November, 2000 - SSEYO (pronounced "say-o"), a leading developer of wireless, email and Internet audio enabling technologies, today announced new cross-platform SSEYO Koan authoring tools, Koan Plugin 8 and Koan Pro V2.6 which include support for "Koan Vector Audio", plus a massively uprated Software Synthesiser. Koan Vector Audio is a powerful way of describing music and quality custom sounds in simple text format. It can be as little as 300 bytes, and can be embedded directly into web-pages - meaning no file attachments. SSEYO will soon be announcing significant Internet partners that will be using it to describe audio and FX for rollovers, menus and site navigation, as well as content for complex interactive audio applications and banner ads. Also, for the first time, SSEYO Koan authoring tools may be evaluated free of charge for 30 days and used to create material for the SSEYO Koan Interactive Audio Platform. This latest change in strategy is in direct response to the interest generated by the launch of SSEYO's "Concept Phone", which is powered by the convergent Koan system. SSEYO's new releases mean that users themselves can prepare for Koan before the technology's imminent appearance on wireless devices, such as mobile phones. SSEYO is already working on further, enhanced versions of the tools. You will soon be able to DJ with your cellphone! "This is really exciting news," said Francis Charig, Chairman of Tao Group. "Personalisation is a key requisite in today's electronic devices and personalised audio is just waiting to happen. SSEYO's authoring tools will enable users to prepare for the upcoming audio revolution on networked devices." Tim Cole, co-founder and CEO of SSEYO Limited comments, "Since the launch of the "Concept Phone" we have received requests from customers interested in discovering more about our Koan technology. By offering full authoring tools on 30 days evaluation we hope to demystify interactive audio and start users creating ready for the new wave of unique, personalised polyphonic audio on mobile phones." The tools will be available for download from SSEYO's website http://www.sseyo.com and on CD covers everywhere.
