TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Terrada Music Score, a technology startup based in Tokyo has launched its GVIDO Electronic Paper Dual Screen Digital Music Score device, a dual 13.3 inch screen tablet with a low reflection display and an inventive stylus, all in a lightweight 660 gram (23.3 oz.) format.
“After creating a prototype of the GVIDO back in 2016 and sharing it with a select group of music professionals, the response we received was both overwhelming and informative,” said Fujio Noguchi, President, Terrada Music Score Corporation. “We know we were on to something and took their feedback to make a device that is what so many musicians have been looking for. “
In addition to the launch of GVIDO, Terrada Music Score has launched its music score service which allows GVIDO owners to buy music scores from the world's largest publisher of educational music materials and songbooks, Hal Leonard.
“The GVIDO is an impressive and innovative dedicated music score device and we are very excited about the possibilities for musicians to experience this new technology,” said Larry Morton, President of Hal Leonard. “We look forward to making selections of our best-selling music score files available for purchase via the GVIDO Service website.”
The GVIDO was designed from scratch as a dedicated electronic paper dual screen music score device for musicians of any level. It can store thousands of music scores and is only 0.25 inches thick when folded. GVIDO uses PDF files as its source medium which makes it instantly compatible with the most widely available music score format. The stylus can be used to write comments and music annotations on the music score which can be shared through a cloud based service with other GVIDO device users, making it an ideal choice for conductors and music librarians.
Terrada Music Score will be participating in the 2017 Midwest Clinic (booth #1901), and the 2018 NAMM Show (booth #8735), providing GVIDO product demonstrations and interactive experiences.
