For music services, 2011 proved to be the year of streaming, radio and mobile. We are now seeing signs that 2012 is continuing that trend and we are continuing to enhance our platform to make sure our partners have everything they need to create world-class music experiences.
MediaNet added over 20 partners last year who are offering a mobile version of their service. We also saw tremendous increases in streaming volume with the successes of MOG, songza and Turntable.fm . Overall we saw an increase of over 70% in streams to over ¾ billion streams in 2012.
“Our platform has provided significant advantages for our mobile streaming partners over the years as opposed to other DSPs just entering the streaming space” says Frank Johnson, MediaNet CEO. “Our experience in the last decade with cloud services as well as the availability of streaming optimized formats like AAC+ across multiple bit rates, continues to be a strength”.
We are continuing our push to keep our platform the best choice in streaming with the addition of a 48kbps AAC+ encoding of our catalog that provides a great low-bandwidth alternative while maintaining good audio quality.
Currently offered streaming encoding formats and bitrates:
|MP3||128, 256, 320 kbps|
|AAC+||48, 64 kbps|
Another way we make our partners successful is by ensuring a smoother, more responsive end user experience; all of these encodings are free of album art, which otherwise slows down play start time.
We anticipate another year of innovation in the digital music space and look forward to share our expertise with many great new services.
