GEMINI | NAME CHANGE
Gemini Becomes GCI
After 34 years of serving the Audio and DJ communities, Gemini Sound Products has changed its company name to GCI Technologies. GCI Technologies will act as the corporate umbrella for the Gemini, iKey and newly-acquired Cortex brands.
“We have the infrastructure in place to distribute additional technology based brands” said Artie Cabasso, CEO. “With this change we are in a position to acquire other brands or technology that we would not be able to develop on our own.”
At the same time as the name change, GCI Technologies also announced the acquisition of the global rights to Cortex, which debuted its line of digital music controllers at last January’s NAMM Show. The technology caught the eyes and ears of the Gemini team, prompting them to acquire the engineering company who developed it.
“With its revolutionary hard drive-based technology, Cortex allows the DJ to easily access, control, and manipulate their entire digital music collection from virtually any USB storage device, including an iPod™” explains President Alan Cabasso. “Bringing the art of performance back into DJ’ing, Cortex is truly the future.”
