TORONTO, CANADA – YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, is pleased to announce that YANGAROO’S Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) successfully reduced costs and provided an environmentally-friendly method for distributing music and enabling the judging process for The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) in association with this year’s JUNO Awards.
Thanks to the technological capabilities of YANGAROO’s new DMDS 5.0 platform, more than 300 jury and 1,700 Academy members were able to review submitted materials online, eliminating the need for a third-party supplier to collect, manage and distribute in the range of 15,000 physical CDs. The digital process helped to reduce both costs and waste from packaging and shipping materials across the country.
With DMDS 5.0, jury and Academy members accessed the music by either downloading it to burn on a CD or uploading it to an iPod. All promotional materials that were submitted with the music were also digitally accessible. Votes were then cast online in the specific category or categories that applied and DMDS 5.0 provided CARAS with detailed reports of the entire process.
