DMDS 5.0 Now Available Throughout North America; European and Global
TORONTO, April 23 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the
industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, is pleased to
announce the launch of the next generation of its Digital Media Distribution
System, DMDS 5.0, the preferred method for sending secured digital media.
DMDS 5.0 is the culmination of months of planning, development and an
investment of over a million dollars, based on user feedback and the specific
needs of organizations to move and market digital files securely and
A significant new feature of the system is support for the delivery of
broadcast quality video. Leveraging prior experience in assisting content
owners and radio stations to digitize workflows and reduce and eliminate the
use of Compact Discs - DMDS 5.0 reduces the reliance on tape based work flows
by allowing content owners to drag and drop broadcast quality videos for
distribution to industry professionals. This not only facilitates unparalleled
collaboration among the involved parties, but reduces or eliminates the
duplication, shipping and delivery of tapes - a process that takes a
significant amount of time, money and effort.
"DMDS version 5.0 is a significant milestone in our mission to deliver a
fast and secure environment for content owners to effectively manage the
delivery of their audio and video releases," said Richard Klosa, Chief
Technology Officer at YANGAROO Inc. "We've worked closely with our customers
to create a more intuitive system that matches their workflows and will be
rapidly adding a bevy of additional features in the coming weeks and months."
DMDS 5.0 was designed in a modular, data driven fashion utilizing a
services oriented architecture (SOA) approach, so that it can be responsive to
the changing needs of YANGAROO customers worldwide, and is able to adapt to
opportunities for secure digital file delivery in the music and advertising
The DMDS 5.0 platform was utilized to power the recently completed
Canadian JUNO Awards as the first step in this rollout, and has been in beta
testing with a number of major record label customers in both the US and
Canada for a number of weeks. Beta testing by major advertisers for the
delivery of both audio and video content is planned to commence shortly.
