QRS Music Technologies, Inc.'s PNOscan™ Continues to Gain Accolades

SENECA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- QRS Music Technologies, Inc., (OTC:QRSM.ob - News) a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of pianos, piano-based audio and multimedia products, music and piano technologies, takes particular pride in the rave reviews they have been receiving from venues and artists across the globe about the performance of their PNOscan Technology.

“PNOscan Technology has been used at the US Grammy Awards, Jazz festivals to stage productions of the Stravinsky Project, and recording studios. Artists are anxious to use the technology because of PNOscan’s flawless performance. When you want the touch and feel of a real acoustic piano coupled with a full range of digital output capabilities, there is only one place to turn,” said Tom Dolan, QRS President and CEO. “With PNOscan, producers get the digital output and quality they want and the artist experiences the touch, feel and sound of an acoustic piano. PNOscan’s patent-pending technology has an unique approach to optically sensing the movement of every key and pedal, even making its performance in difficult high light and flash situations second to none.”

PNOscan was introduced in late 2006 and is still considered the best and most accepted key-sensing technology on the market. It’s popularity among serious musicians, studios, composers, and performance venues continue to grow. PNOscan bridges the gap between the features and benefits of acoustic and digital pianos. “It holds huge appeal for serious musicians who prefer the touch of an acoustic piano yet need a full range of digital capabilities,” said Mr. Dolan.

Installed underneath the key bed, PNOscan uses optical sensors to track the movement of every key and pedal movement as it is played and translates the sound for output via MIDI and USB ports, creating connectivity to the digital world and the many applications currently available through laptops, PCs and Macs. 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.
