TAMPA, FLORIDA USA -- October 10, 2006:
If you’re remotely familiar with Karaoke, over the years in one way or another you have utilized technology developed by this industry pioneer. With a Bachelor of Technology degree, Gai Marcos developed, and first introduced, the now-popular and industry standard format MP3+G in early 1998. He also developed the first PC Karaoke player to support the format called "WinCDG."
Gai began his career in PC Karaoke by starting a company called TyrannoSoft in 1998. Now as President/CEO of TriceraSoft, he has remained devoted to making multimedia easy to use. After developing MP3+G, he incorporated a wide range of solutions offering custom development platforms by combining various open and proprietary technologies. Technologies include (but are not limited to) Jukebox, Player Software, DSP, 3D Visuals and Effects, Management, Presentation, Schedulers, Blue-Screening (Chroma Key), Remote Request Tools, and Lighting Control.
Karaoke enthusiasts globally have benefited from Gai’s dedication to the KJ and VJ community—quickly developing tools to meet the demands of our industry. Did you know he also developed the one and only CD+G Ripper tool (the first CD+G-to-MP3+G extraction tool)? In 1999 under his new company, TriceraSoft, he introduced the first Professional Video, Audio, and Karaoke Software Solution, "Mimic Audition."
Today we tip our hats, cue our respect, and give thanks to the dedication of an industry pioneer who continues to integrate multiple technologies and solutions that give Karaoke Jockeys everywhere a unique and creative edge: Gai Marcos of Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
