New Play MPE® Playerless Downloading Enables Instant Library Access From Any Web Browser
Vancouver, BC, Feb 26, 2008 --- Destiny Media (OTC Bulletin Board: DSNY), developer of the radio and recording industry’s global standard for secure digital distribution of pre-release music to radio, Play MPE®, is proud to offer playerless download, which enables its customers the ability to download high quality tracks from any computer web browser.
With the added ability to download without installing software, Play MPE® will provide enhanced flexibility for users as they will be able to access songs wherever they may be when the track becomes available. This easy new feature will provide even more value to record label customers by expanding access to their pre-release music.
"We listened to our customers and a common request was to access available tracks from machines that didn’t have the Play MPE® player installed," said Dean Ernst, VP of MPE® Operations. "We are excited to provide this feature to our users as we continue to add key enhancements to the system.”
Play MPE® users can log in at www.plaympe.com and have full access to all of their Available Tracks instantly and securely. Uncompressed forensically watermarked WAV files can be downloaded from anywhere and will play back on any audio broadcast system or software such as iTunes. Customers, who currently use the Play MPE® Player software, will continue to be able to utilize all of the features they have come to rely on such as playlists, CD burning and iPod export. Labels will continue to have the high level security and control over access to their content that they’ve come to expect.
