Probably ATRAC-style compression.

I herd about those a LONG time ago.

That company thought that those would be a 'big' thing and every device would use em.

Eg. all MP3 players would use em, all camquarters would use em Gameboy would use em ETC.

Never took off, pritty crappy idea. Think of it as a new MiniDisk.

There's a piece in the current Maximum PC watchdog column about this particular format. Head over to your local newsstand and check it out.
