Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. Announces Release of Clipstream® Audio 3.0

Instant Play CD Quality Audio Available for any Website

Vancouver B.C. – July 25, 2006 – Destiny Media Technologies (BB:DSNY.OB) is pleased to announce the long anticipated release of Clipstream™ Audio 3.0, featuring high quality CD audio. In the past, this would have required site visitors to download and install an MP3 player. Assuming the software was available, users would select the appropriate bitrate, then wait for the player to launch. In most cases, they would be taken from the web page they were viewing to a pop up player window that varied from user to user in look and feel.

Clipstream™ plays instantly for 98% of the Internet audience, regardless of their connection speed, operating system and browser. “It just plays!” even through corporate firewalls. Audio content can be tightly integrated into the web page. No special servers are required and because the content caches, playback is much more reliable, requiring up to 90% less bandwidth than competing solutions. Users can seek to any place in the audio, including parts that have not yet downloaded. A two hour clip responds just as efficiently as a two minute clip. The time stamp allows precise access to any point in the sample.

To add a clip to their website, a content owner would process an audio file, such as a .WAV through the Clipstream™ Audio encoder software, then upload the resulting page to their site. The Clipstream™ Audio clip is compatible with all web servers and operating systems.

No other Internet audio software offers the rich feature set of Clipstream™. The look and feel of the player can be customized or the player can be eliminated altogether, using common web languages such as Javascript to access playback controls and functionality. This allows web developers to create interactive presentations where audio playback is triggered by interaction with the site. Examples might include ads that speak when the mouse hovers over them, web pages that provide navigational instructions as the site visitor interacts with page elements and audio versions of pages for the blind.

Database driven applications could include audio powered classified sites, audio powered search, music previewing or audio based interactive learning.
For many applications, security is important. Clipstream™ Audio playback can be restricted to play only on authorized domains, so the content is locked to that site. Other features include the ability to trigger other clips, pictures or to have the audio link to other websites.

Clipstream™ Audio 3.0 is available starting July 25, 2006 from http://www.clipstreamaudio.com. The lite version is $29.95 and the pro version starts at $99.95 for 25 clips, $199.95 for 200 clips, $499.95 for 1,000 clips and $.25 per clip above 1,000 clips. Quantity discounts are available so volume users such as web developers can pre-purchase licenses, then profitably resell Clipstream™ Audio to their customers.
