Gibson Launches HD 6X Pro Digital Guitar with CAT-5 Ouput Provided by NetworkSound

NetworkSound, an Innovance client, is a spinout of 3COM that designs and manufactures products for synchronized delivery of high quality digital audio, video and control data over a standard Cat-5 cable for the professional audio and video markets. Their technology enables audio/video networks, where media is piped, in real time, over the same Cat-5 ethernet cable that connects computer networks.

Their first product is the core component of this newly launched digital guitar. The guitar combines a classic Gibson Les Paul with a revolutionary digital output. The guitar has all the original components of a Les Paul, including the original pickups. In addition, it has an individual pickup for each string, a microphone input, and a Cat-5 digital output.

NetworkSound designed, and manufactures the core component, which converts 8 channels of analog audio (1 channel for each string + 1 for all strings combined + microphone) to digital, and transports them over a Cat-5 cable.
