DMDS Hybrid Technology To Enable The Fastest Secure Digital Delivery Of TV Spots & Music Videos
Toronto, Canada, February 28, 2007 -- Musicrypt Inc. (TSX-V: MCT, OTC: MCYPF), the leader in secure digital media distribution, and Pando Networks, Inc., today announced they have entered into a licensing agreement extending and expanding their relationship following a very successful pilot program. Musicrypt proved the concept of integrating Pando's unique technology with Musicrypt's patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) in order to provide the fastest and most secure delivery of large digital content such as television commercials, music videos and audio files via the Internet.
Incorporation of Pando Networks' innovative peer-to-peer architecture within DMDS will enable the secure digital delivery of full broadcast-quality music videos and television commercials via the Internet with the fastest downloads available to the music and advertising industries. Currently, large files like these are primarily delivered on DVD, Beta tape, or by satellite, which are comparatively inefficient, insecure, slow and expensive.
"Integrating Pando with Musicrypt's DMDS means the end user will now be able download video and audio files in record time, while providing unsurpassed accountability to the content provider," said Robert Levitan, CEo of Pando Networks. "With our combined force, Musicrypt continues to be at the forefront of secure digital media distribution."
Musicrypt's patented DMDS has delivered over 7,000 different songs from more than 150 record labels to destinations which include radio stations representing over 35 U.S. broadcast chains such as CBS/Infinity, Citadel, Clear Channel, Cox, Cumulus, Emmis, EntreVision, Entercom, Federated Media, Sirius, Journal, DMX, Jones Radio, AOL, Music Choice, Radio One, Salem Communications, Univision, Westwood One, Regent, Premiere Radio, Next Media, XM Satellite Radio, Waitt Media and many others.
"This latest innovation incorporating Pando's unique technology illustrates the flexibility of our DMDS platform," said John Heaven, President and CEO of Musicrypt. "The hybrid technology will provide the fastest, most efficient, reliable and secure delivery of TV commercials, music videos and audio files available to the advertising and music industries today."
Musicrypt is partnered in the U.S. with Billboard, R&R and Nielsen BDS; in the UK, Europe and Australia with Adstream Ltd; and is marketed to the U.S. advertising industry by AWE, a division of Omnicom, and The Gary Group. DMDS is the only digital delivery system that can deliver music throughout the U.S., Canada and the UK.
