YANGAROO and Ireland's IASCA Enter Agreement for Secure Music Delivery

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 05, 2015) - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX VENTURE: YOO) (OTCBB: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media management company, today announced a multi-year agreement with Ireland's music writers association, IASCA, to provide secure delivery of music from record labels and independent music artists to broadcasters, music reviewers and other destinations in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

YANGAROO's Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) is a proven solution and has been successfully delivering music securely and electronically for major and independent record labels and other content owners to radio broadcasters and other destinations in North America and other territories for over a decade.

The DMDS service will be officially launched in Q4 of 2015 in Ireland, and the introduction of this world class technology solves a number of issues for artists, labels, as well as broadcasters and other media outlets in Ireland. For the former, it delivers the highest quality, watermarked, broadcast ready files, instantly, securely, inexpensively, and directly to the decision makers, in a format in which they prefer to receive it. For media, DMDS is for exclusive use to pre-approved recipients, and these releases are easily accessible in one library via computer or mobile device.

"The Canadian Music Industry led the world in the move to digital delivery of music to broadcasters beginning in 2003, and now virtually all music that is heard on radio in Canada is delivered via DMDS," said Cliff Hunt, YANGAROO Vice Chairman and COO. "We have, of course, expanded into the U.S. and other territories since then, and are excited to have Ireland and the IASCA leading the way in Europe."

Sinead Troy, General Manager of IASCA and DMDS Ireland, says, "It's an exciting time for us, there is no doubt this is now an Irish music industry solution, to an Irish music industry problem. For example, Irish radio stations receive independent music haphazardly and if we want them to consider playing more, then we simply have to make it easier for them to access and listen to! Irish radio have been hugely supportive of the plan for DMDS, and are ready to begin testing the platform next month."
