Mood Media turns on the music at Variety Wholesalers

The Maxway division at Variety Wholesalers ("Variety") gets equipped with reliable technology and affordable music from Mood Media

CHARLOTTE, NC, Nov. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - Mood Media Corporation (TSX:MM/ LSE AIM:MM), the leading in-store media specialist, announces the deployment of its media technology and Direct License music program across 150 Maxway store locations.

Mood Media's Direct License music program allows big box retail groups to broadcast music at affordable rates. The music consultants at Mood Media have built several channels from its catalog of 1.8million tracks so retailers like Variety can provide a better shopper atmosphere for customers at each of its brands.

Wilson Sawyer COO of Variety Wholesalers commented, "we chose to work with Mood Media because we know our stores now have an affordable music service that is easy to manage and sounds great. The Directly Licensed catalog of music is perfect for us, the music quality is every bit as good as Major Label recordings and our store associates and customers love that we are supporting new artists across America".

Mood Media's MBOX media player is a proven and reliable technology that updates through a modem or a network connection. It is an affordable and energy efficient player. "Our services make retail better", says Mood CEO and Chairman, Lorne Abony, "we engage shoppers with great music and we deliver it through affordable and reliable technology. We have the world's largest Direct License music catalog and it allows us to offer good quality music to large retail stores, who otherwise would be silent."
