As part of Yamaha's 125th anniversary activities, on Friday, January 25, Pacific Standard Time (PST), a live performance by world-renowned artist Elton John was streamed from Anaheim, California to various venues in 11 countries using Yamaha's original RemoteLive™ technology1 and Disklavier™ advanced player piano2.
- RemoteLive™ technology, developed by Yamaha, makes it possible to stream visual, audio, and other information related to performance content (through a musical instrument digital interface (MIDI)) from the concert hall where live performances are held to many other locations via the Internet. Keyboards of pianos in remote locations automatically play simultaneously with the performer's instrument, giving the impression to audiences in remote locations that they are hearing and enjoying a live performance.
- Disklavier™ is an advanced acoustic player piano developed by Yamaha. The instrument incorporates a digital control system that records and reproduces performances with high precision by moving the keys and pedals in exact accord with input digital information. By uploading music content to the Internet via Yamaha's DisklavierRadio, digital information on the performance can be streamed and reproduced automatically for listeners' enjoyment.
