PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 18, 2002--Friday, SunnComm Inc. announced a formal licensing agreement with Nashville's Sunbird Records, a subsidiary of Cayenne Entertainment.
This Authorized Content Provider agreement will cover the commercial use of SunnComm's CD-3(TM) "Expanded Experience" and MediaCloQ(TM) Digital Content Cloaking Technologies.
Sunbird's president, Nelson Larkin, said, "The feedback from consumers on the Len Doolin product, using SunnComm's newest technology, has been very positive. The artists on our label have seen the product and want to use CD-3 for all their upcoming releases.
"This formal licensing agreement for the use of SunnComm technology enables the artists we represent to produce their albums in a format that is appealing to their fans."
Peter H. Jacobs, SunnComm's chief executive officer, stated, "Our first product trial with Sunbird Records has been very well received. Len Doolin's album, 'Once in a Lifetime,' has paved the way for commercial use of SunnComm's CD-3 Technology. The potential our technology has to promote inter-activity between the consumers and the artist community is spectacular."
Larkin continued, "Now we can move forward and begin deployment of SunnComm's CD-3 technology for our artists. Next to include CD-3 technology is Earl Thomas Conley. Mr. Conley has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have four No. 1 hits from one album."
