DMDS 5.0 Now Available Throughout North America; European and Global Launch Underway

TORONTO, CANADA – YANGAROO Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, is pleased to announce the launch of the next generation of its Digital Media Distribution System, DMDS 5.0, the preferred method for sending secured digital media.

DMDS 5.0 is the culmination of months of planning, development and an investment of over a million dollars, based on user feedback and the specific needs of organizations to move and market digital files securely and efficiently.

A significant new feature of the system is support for the delivery of broadcast quality video. Leveraging prior experience in assisting content owners and radio stations to digitize workflows and reduce and eliminate the use of Compact Discs – DMDS 5.0 reduces the reliance on tape based work flows by allowing content owners to drag and drop broadcast quality videos for distribution to industry professionals. This not only facilitates unparalleled collaboration among the involved parties, but reduces or eliminates the duplication, shipping and delivery of tapes- a process that takes a significant amount of time, money and effort.

“DMDS version 5.0 is a significant milestone in our mission to deliver a fast and secure environment for content owners to effectively manage the delivery of their audio and video releases,” said Richard Klosa, Chief Technology Officer at YANGAROO Inc. ‘We’ve worked closely with our customers to create a more intuitive system that matches their workflows and will be rapidly adding a bevy of additional features in the coming weeks and months.”

DMDS 5.0 was designed in a modular, data driven fashion utilizing a services oriented architecture (SOA) approach, so that it can be responsive to the changing needs of YANGAROO customers worldwide, and is able to adapt to opportunities for secure digital file delivery in the music and advertising industry.

The DMDS 5.0 platform was utilized to power the recently completed Canadian JUNO Awards as the first step in this rollout, and has been in beta testing with a number of major record label customers in both the US and Canada for a number of weeks. Beta testing by major advertisers for the delivery of both audio and video content is planned to commence shortly.
