PNOSCAN™ Chosen For Use At Telluride Jazz Celebration

Neville Brothers, Dr. John and Les McCann & Javon Jackson Band headline celebration

NAPLES, FLORIDA, May 5, 2008 –QRS Music Technologies, Inc., a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of pianos, piano-based audio and multimedia products, music and piano accessories, today announced that PNOscan™, an optical recording device that provides connectivity to acoustic pianos, will be used by musicians playing at the upcoming prestigious Telluride Jazz Celebration during their performances, June 5-8. Artists playing at the festival include the Neville Brothers, Dr. John and Les McCann & Javon Jackson Band.

PNOscan was introduced in late 2006 and has been gaining popularity with both serious musicians and recreational players. PNOscan was also featured at the recent New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and was used by Steinway artist Allen Toussaint who played with Elvis Costello. PNOscan is currently being used on the two Steinway pianos featured in Bette Midler’s “The Showgirl Must Go On”, the headline show at Caesars Palace,

“PNOscan bridges the gap between the features and benefits of acoustic and digital pianos,” said Tom Dolan, president and CEO of QRS Music Technologies, Inc. “It holds huge appeal for serious musicians who prefer the touch and action of an acoustic piano yet need a full range of digital capabilities.”

Installed underneath the key bed, PNOscan uses optical sensors to track the movement of every key as it is played and translates the sound for output via MIDI and USB ports, creating access to every application currently available to the digital piano when connected to a MIDI device or laptop. PNOscan can be retrofit by any Story & Clark dealer onto any acoustic piano and is a standard installation on all Story & Clark pianos. For more information about PNOscan, visit www.qrsmusic.com.
