In honor of the occasion, David Habiger, Chief Executive Officer of Sonic Solutions (SNIC), will preside over the NASDAQ Opening Bell. Mr. Habiger will be joined by representatives from partner companies Best Buy, LG, Panasonic, and Samsung.
Although sometimes mistaken as the burger chain (a fact the company plans to make light of during the ceremony), Sonic Solutions is in fact a leading digital media software company that's helping power the entertainment industry's transition to digital distribution through its recognized brands Roxio and DivX.
Sonic is at NASDAQ to celebrate the success of its RoxioNow digital entertainment platform which is powering retailer and studio movie stores on hundreds of new consumer electronics device models shipping this fall. For consumers, the result will mean instant access to the best in entertainment from their favorite home and mobile devices.
