DMDS: Digital Media Distribution System[edit]

Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) is a patented service of YANGAROO Inc.

YANGAROO, powered by 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 digital file based workflows.

The DMDS service supports:

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

YANGAROO 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]

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

YANGAROO 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.

Key Partnerships[edit]

In December 2014, YANGAROO announced a partnership with IMD Fastrax, the music distribution arm of leading global delivery logistic company, IMD. The partnership will enable North American record labels and recording artists to deliver their music videos to the UK & Ireland via the IMD Fastrax platform.[5]
