BreakOut West Partner YANGAROO Announces The Launch Of EZ Downloads; Software-free Secure Watermarked Cloud Based Interface
The start of a series of first to market platform improvements, providing a significantly enhanced, user-friendly experience
TORONTO - September 25th, 2020 – YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF, the “Company”, “Yangaroo”), the software leader in workflow management and media distribution solutions, today announced the launch of a major upgrade to its cloud-based YANGAROO Music distribution platform. The Yangaroo Music platform runs on Yangaroo’s DMDS workflow solution for Media and Entertainment companies based entirely in the cloud. DMDS users, including professionals in radio, media and other promotional music outlets, are now able to download new music and accompanying promo assets directly through their web browser with the same efficiency and security as using the existing application interface. This update has been dubbed EZ Downloads and provides a significant market advantage over competing services, making Yangaroo Music and DMDS the only trusted provider of new music not to require the installation of proprietary software to facilitate secure, watermarked downloads.
Yangaroo has been conducting extensive user-feedback research to ensure its valued radio users are provided with professional tools to browse, access, and acquire new music for promotional airplay while maintaining an easy and intuitive user experience. The ability to download directly without any need for software and application installation is a significant benefit for radio and music end-users. Yangaroo Music has highlighted this upgraded as the first of a number of updates and enhancements intended to strengthen DMDS’ position as the market leader in secure radio servicing.
“When trusted by multinational corporations with their sensitive pre-released music, there is a fine balance between security and accessibility for industry partners,” said Adam Hunt, Sr. VP Entertainment, YANGAROO Inc. “EZ Downloads meets these needs perfectly by providing radio with the best user experience available without compromising the security and accountability the platform has offered for close to twenty years.”
