Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) is a secure distribution tool for audio and video media via the internet and is used by industry professionals. Systems like DMDS make it possible for broadcasters, TV advertisers, and post-production companies to move away from physical media like DigiBeta tapes to file based workflows. DMDS is a service of Toronto, Ontario company Yangaroo Inc. (TSXV: YOO).

The DMDS service supports:

  • Broadcast quality music video and television advertising distribution
  • Award show content distribution and voting
  • Music distribution to radio and industry professionals.

DMDS Music provides programmers, broadcasters, journalists and other industry professionals with the ability to preview and download pre-release media from music professionals including major record labels and independents.[1] Organizations like MTV have selected DMDS to manage their digital video submission process and to review materials for broadcast.[2]

DMDS Advertising is used by post-production facilities and advertising agencies to expedite the delivery of advertising content to broadcasters, utilizing file based workflows.

DMDS Awards is used by associations for submission and adjudication of Award Show entries. Groups like NARAS (The Grammy Awards [3] [4]) and CARAS (The Juno Awards) utilize the system to manage their Awards shows.
