MUSICGIANTS® AND VIDEOGIANTS™ BECOME ONE BIG GIANT
Denver, CO – CEDIA EXPO – September 4-7, 2008 – MusicGiants, Inc. today announced its new corporate identity, HDGiants™, to convey to customers, dealers and manufacturers that it is the only source for the highest quality music AND movies for high-end home theaters.
MusicGiants launched in 2005 as the only digital download service licensed to sell high-definition music from all of the major music labels. The company recently introduced its HD film distribution platform, “VideoGiants”, and felt it was necessary to make the move to HDGiants so that customers, dealers and manufactures would know the company’s products were not limited to the highest quality music. HDGiants will continue to offer its high definition music under the MusicGiants® brand. Likewise, high definition movies, music concerts, music videos and television will continue to be distributed under its VideoGiants® brand.
“Our music and film content is a higher quality than the content you can get from any other digital distributor licensed by the major music and film companies. It makes the experience in any home theater environment sound better and look better”, says Scott Bahneman, CEO of HDGiants. “It is a must-have for anybody who has invested in high performance audio or video gear for their home”, Bahneman continued.
“Our move to HDGiants is very exciting and it truly represents the amount of growth that we have made in key areas of entertainment distribution,” continues Bahneman. “Under this corporate identity we will continue to move into more diverse areas of content delivery including music videos, television, concerts, 3D movies and video games, and imagery.”
MusicGiants’ HD downloads use the WMA lossless format to deliver up to seven time’s better sound quality than other digital download services. MusicGiants also offers Super HD™ downloads created from our proprietary hardware and software system using sample rates of 88.2/24 and 96/24. These files re-create the fantastic listening experience of SACD and DVD-Audio.
VideoGiants delivers high bit rate content ranging from 420p standard definition to 1080p up to 45 mbps, depending on hardware partner capability. This is a video experience previously unavailable to home theater customers.
Currently, the MusicGiants® and VideoGiants™ HD Media Store is being integrated with top hardware manufacturers such as Crestron, Aspen Media Products, QSonix, Niveus, Russound, Olive and ReQuest which provide access to our premium content through their high performance entertainment systems. HDGiants has more than 600 CEDIA dealers in its program who increase their profit margin and earn recurring revenue on every entertainment purchase their customers make.
