Gibson Brands Inc. Sues Ceton Corporation over Wireless Speaker System

Gibson Brands Inc. is suing Ceton Corporation for more than $12.5 million, claiming the company breached a contract in developing a wireless home entertainment system. The maker of Les Paul guitars claims it has paid Ceton more than $950,000 since June to develop the technology. Gibson claims the terms of the agreement would make it the exclusive owner of all of the technology and intellectual property developed by Ceton during the course of the relationship. Ceton now is attempting to claim ownership of the technology that Gibson conceived and funded, apparently so that Ceton may license the technology to others in direct competition with Gibson. Gibson is asking for compensatory damages - including more than $2.5 million in estimated costs to complete the project with a third party, and more than $10 million in lost profits because of Ceton's delay and failure to perform. Gibson is also requesting the court to compel Ceton to surrender all the work product associated with the services and deliverables funded by Gibson, and order that Ceton may not market, license or sell any intellectual property or technology tied to the products developed under the contract.

Ceton Corporation Introduces New Ceton Echo Windows Media Center Extender

Ceton Corporation announced the launch of the Windows Media Center Extender. Compatible with the more than half a billion PCs that have Windows 7 with Media Center, the new Ceton Echo is the only Windows Media Center Extender that will support Android and lets consumers enjoy all their TV channels, DVR recordings and personal media libraries on any TV set in the home. For home theater fans, the new Ceton Echo improves the way they enjoy TV programming and their personal media around the home. The new Ceton Echo get live and recorded TV, along with movies, music, photos and home video, on any TV set without having to pay for a set-top box from a TV provider. Connected to a PC with a TV tuner such as the Ceton InfiniTV and other brands, the Ceton Echo lets consumers watch and record all their favorite TV shows, including premium cable channels, from any TV set. Echo enables multi-room DVR features such as pausing a show in one room and resume watching in another. With Echos attached to multiple TV sets, family members can even watch different shows in different rooms at the same time, all from one HTPC. The Echo's extremely low power consumption reduces energy bills up to $60 per year simply by replacing the power-hungry DVR box with the small, sleek Ceton Echo. In addition to electricity savings, with the Ceton Echo there is no more leasing set-top boxes and paying monthly DVR subscription fees, which can save hundreds of dollars a year. Supporting the Android operating system means consumers can enjoy an increasingly rich set of capabilities and apps that will be added to the Echo over time. Android is expected to be available on the Echo in the coming weeks as a free software update. The Ceton Echo supports Ceton Companion mobile apps, giving users with Apple iOS, Android and Windows smartphones and tablets the ability to manage and control their Media Center experience from both inside and outside the home. Amazon.com and Newegg.com are offering the Ceton Echo for $179 and Ceton InfiniTV tuners for $199. A special bundle of Ceton Echo and Ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe is also available from Amazon.com for $328, a $50 savings. Ceton Companion mobile apps are available from the iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Barnes & Noble app stores for a special holiday price of $2.99, a 40% savings.
