March 31st, 2011 Set For Transition To Digital

TORONTO, CANADA - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, today announced that Country Music Television (CMT) is the latest major broadcaster to choose to receive SD and HD music videos via YANGAROO's patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS).  CMT, the leading television and digital authority on country music and entertainment, plans to complete the transition to digital delivery by March 31st 2011.

"YANGAROO is clearly leading the way to digital video workflows," said Jay Frank, SVP Music Strategy for CMT. "We expect DMDS will help content owners deliver their music videos to us in a quicker, greener, and much more efficient manner as well as streamline our review and programming processes."

"CMT is a very important broadcast destination for us as the country music format is one of the largest in the U.S., and one we have identified as key to our success," said Scott Wambolt, CEO of YANGAROO Inc. "This is another example of how we are executing on our profitable growth strategy as our network of major, regional, and secondary music video destinations continues to grow and with the addition of CMT now exceeds 100 destinations."

YANGAROO'S technology team has worked closely with broadcast engineers to refine the DMDS process for digitally distributing SD and HD television broadcast-quality video to integrate with and enhance broadcaster workflows. DMDS also transcodes the television broadcast quality file for online availability for streaming and provision of a frame-accurate preview quality version with the time-code burned in, which improves reviewing and editing processes. The broadcast-quality video file can be easily integrated into Online Editing Suites, On-Air Playback Servers and stored in a Digital Archive Server.
