New York, NY (September 30, 2015)—Yamaha Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH, and Harrison Audio LLC. have announced a three-company strategic alliance. The effort is intended to provide fully integrated solutions for improving the productivity of the entire immersive film sound workflow by drawing upon Harrison’s large-format technologies, Yamaha’s post-production hardware products, and Steinberg’s DAW and software products.
