Holophone and DPA Microphones A/S Form Strategic Alliance

New Agreement centers on Holophone H2-PRO Surround Sound Microphone, for which DPA Microphones becomes the exclusive provider of microphone elements.

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA, June 8, 2004 - Holophone, a division of Rising Sun Productions, Ltd., and DPA Microphones A/S of Denmark ("DPA") today jointly announced the formation of a strategic alliance by which DPA will become the exclusive provider of microphone elements for the recently introduced Holophone H2-PRO Surround Sound Microphone and any similar products. This alliance follows closely the successful US launch of the Holophone H2-PRO at the NAB Conference in Las Vegas, April 19 - 22 and its European launch at the116th AES (Audio Engineering Society) Convention in Berlin Germany, May 8 - 11, where Holophone and DPA showcased the new Holophone H2-PRO Surround Sound Microphone in the DPA stand.

"We are very pleased to reach this agreement with our friends at DPA Microphones," stated Michael Godfrey, President and inventor of the Holophone. "We tested a number of different omni microphones before selecting DPAs for our first professional product. This agreement ensures that DPA 4060s will be the factory-installed option for our new H2-PRO Surround Sound Microphone." He continues, "In addition to making very nice products, DPA has a great group of people that are fun to work with. We're honored to be partners with DPA Microphones."

Morten Stove, Founder and CEO of DPA Microphones A/S states, "By becoming the exclusive provider of microphones to Holophone for the H2-PRO product, we extend our reach directly into a product designed specifically for the recording of Surround Sound." Continues Mr. Stove, "We anticipate a successful partnership for not only the H2-PRO product but for other solutions in the future."
