SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced that it has been awarded two new patents. U.S. Patent 8,835,739 is entitled "Keystroke and MIDI Command System for DJ player and Video Game Systems" and U.S. Patent 8,835,740 is entitled "Video Game Controller".
U.S. Patent 8,835,739 covers a software application configured to enable a single controller trigger to send arbitrarily complex sequences of keystroke and MIDI control messages to a multimedia device. Examples of multimedia devices include DJ players, video game systems, music, entertainment, and lighting control applications. Each trigger of the controller can be uniquely programmed to generate a complex sequence of keystrokes and MIDI control messages, allowing more complex and higher performance control of the multimedia device.
U.S. Patent 8,835,740 covers a controller having a selection control establishing the data characteristics generated for each controller trigger. A first subset of functions can be programmed to the triggers, and a second subset of functions can also be programmed to the same triggers, allowing a manageable number of triggers to be used to control a plurality of functions.
"These new patents come at a very exciting time for our company as we expand our reach into the education and healthcare markets and secure new partnerships that will benefit from our intellectual property," said Charlie Mollo, President & CEO of Beamz Interactive. "Our strategy has been to aggressively file and maintain a broad range of patents and intellectual property to protect our current and future business. We believe our seven issued US utility patents, coupled with our U.S. design patent, our 12 patents pending, and our extensive software, trademarks, copyrights, content, and music licensing rights, provide extensive intellectual property protection for our business."
