AT&T, long regarded as the world's leader in sound quality breakthroughs, has put that expertise to work for the RRHOF+M. As a founding sponsor of the Hall, which opened in 1995, AT&T has contributed funding and technical assistance to the attraction to present the colorful and multi-sensory history of rock music.
A Massive Virtual Library of Songs
AT&T is the sponsor of the new, expanded Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which opened April 2, 1998. A gala celebration at the ribbon cutting included a laser light show and a live concert by Bo Diddley. The new Hall offers exciting multimedia experiences that chronicle the history of rock music. There are new artifact exhibits, and a dynamic film celebrating past inductees projected on three 20-foot tall screens.
The new Hall of Fame also features what is likely the world's most comprehensive jukebox: a computerized kiosk at which visitors can listen to virtually any song ever recorded by the Hall of Fame inductees. This astounding 27,000 song database was made possible through cutting-edge data compression technology created by AT&T. A timeline of innovations in sound technology is also part of the exhibit.
