So you can reproduce the melodic experience that is occurring here in New York on pianos anyplace on the planet, on Spirio | r pianos, continuously.

GEORGE: Spiriocast is another name for it.

ERIC: Yes. What’s more, it’s in a real sense something that should be possible simply utilizing the piano and the iPad. The Spirio app now supports it. It is simply a software update, and it is currently available on the market in the United States. Later this year, it will also be available on the market in Europe and Asia-Pacific. So it’s the most recent advancement. In October of last year, we held a significant press event in New York City.
