GVIDO MUSIC Co., Ltd., developed the world’s first dual screen music score device “GVIDO”. GVIDO is 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.

TOA’s extensive line of audio products includes amplifiers, speakers, mixers, wireless microphone systems, digital processors and network audio.
Increasing crime rates and a general decline in public safety are an unfortunate side effect of rapidly urbanizing regional communities. With such surrounding social conditions becoming increasingly unstable, the need for self-protection is advancing all too quickly. Advancing urbanization is also contributing to ever taller and more sophisticated buildings, and ensuring safety for the inhabitants of these structures in emergency situations such as fires, earthquakes, and other disasters is a difficult challenge-but one that is nevertheless among the most important foundations of any society. TOA is there to help, applying its audio and video technologies to cope with issues ranging from security to disaster, protecting people’s lives and lifestyles, and contributing to improved safety and greater peace-of-mind.
Communicating important information quickly and efficiently is vital in busy public spaces where large numbers of people come and go at a dizzying pace. The innumerable repeated announcements and other types of audio and video guidance used in these spaces, while often taken for granted, are essential in helping people navigate these areas with a minimum of stress and confusion. Further, just as the evolution of powerful networks has freed our communications from conventional concepts of time and distance, dramatic advances in information technology daily expand our message exchange capabilities into increasingly sophisticated new scenarios. Amidst these advances, TOA combines technologies for Seeing, Hearing, and Communicating in unique and original ways to create information communication systems that are ever richer in amenity and convenience.
As music resounds through a concert hall, the artistry inherent in the sound itself ranges from the fiercely intense to the upliftingly pleasant and gentle. In sports stadiums, sound is an essential element in helping thousands of fans, absorbed in the emotional movement of the game, to share a common feeling. In such ways, the performance-enhancing power of sound has the capacity to transport people into extraordinary aural and emotional spaces. TOA offers audio equipment on par with the strictest standards of audio professionals, helping to make spaces more dramatic and pleasant, and contributing to the emotional movement and shared experience of the people who use them.
Office buildings, stadiums, theaters, train stations, airports, theme parks-to all of these TOA products and services can bring greater comfort, better safety, and more dramatic enjoyment. Wherever the realms of “Seeing” “Hearing” and “Communicating” are important, TOA applies its unique technological development capabilities to the ongoing creation of attractive products and services offering new value.
Accuphase products are well regarded by high-end audio enthusiasts, but the brand is uncommon in the USA. Accuphase products are readily identified by their large Champagne-colored faceplates and large dual analog power meters – which are similar to the respected McIntosh Laboratory brand (McIntosh is famous for its unique faceplates, which are made of silk-screened glass and use large blue analog power meters).
Music is an oasis that refreshes us in our journey of life.
Music can be soothing, exciting, exhilarating. It can move our hearts and enrich our lives, which is the goal we at Accuphase seek through audio technology.
This was the idea behind the slogan “Enrich Life through Technology” which originally brought together the group of very highly skilled audio experts who conceived and today produce the successful Accuphase line of audio equipment. It is the guiding principle behind all Accuphase components whose high grade can be considered extravagant. Just as there are exquisite musical instruments that are especially highly prized, we believe that the same applies to audio components. This belief forms the basis of our design concept. It is the reason why we strive to build extra value into each of our units so that they will display fully the merits of hand construction.
The name ACCUPHASE was adapted by taking the prefix ACCU from the word “accurate”, and combining it with PHASE which is a most important factor in audio technology. We feel it is a very fitting brand name to describe our products that fully portray this and other important characteristics, which penetrate the innermost depth of audio technology. Our endless pursuit of quality requires a very high degree of processing which persuades us to avoid the use of mass production systems. Consequently, production volume is limited and Accuphase products are available only at a restricted number of specialized stores.
Accuphase equipment is not subject to the whims of market fashion since they are made, above all, to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction. This is the foremost reason why our products have enjoyed long-run production.
By combining dedicated research with creative thinking, the Accuphase engineering department has developed numerous proprietary technologies. Some of these are explained here.
