Musicrypt Inc., the industry’s leading developer of user-friendly and secure media distribution, has received the endorsement of Clear Channel Radio, the largest radio broadcaster in North America, with over 1200 radio stations in the United States. Musicrypt’s patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) is an easy to use, web-based system that requires no expensive software or hardware. DMDS delivers music simultaneously to all intended destinations and is available 24/7. Its advanced technology allows record labels and broadcasters to control the delivery, receipt and use of their music.
“We recognize that music labels need an efficient, but secure way to distribute music to our programmers,” said Jeff Littlejohn, executive vice president, Distribution Development for Clear Channel Radio. “Musicrypt’s DMDS interfaces easily with our internal systems, so our stations can be assured of receiving the highest quality of audio as soon as it becomes available.”
In December, 2004 Musicrypt entered an exclusive partnership with Billboard Radio Monitor to market and promote DMDS in America following an extremely successful year in Canada. Musicrypt’s Digital Media Distribution System is the premier digital music distribution system in the industry. DMDS is currently used by over 85% of the Canadian music industry, which includes leading record labels such as, EMI Music, Sony BMG Music, Universal Music and Warner Music. Major Canadian broadcast chains representing 100% of all electronically chart monitored radio stations now use DMDS, including Canada’s three largest broadcasters – Corus Radio, Rogers Media Broadcasting and Standard Radio on an exclusive basis.
