Digital Download Music Kiosk from SyncCast and Mix & Burn

"SyncCast and Mix & Burn will unveil the long-awaited Digital Download Music Kiosk at this year's National Association of Record Merchandisers, Insights and Sounds event, a gathering of key players in the retail and music industry. Mix & Burn, a leading distributor of digital music via the Music Tablet(TM) in-store kiosk, has integrated SyncCast's kiosk solution. SyncCast's technology, built on Microsoft's Windows Media DRM 10, provides the necessary security that allows digital kiosks to pass the scrutiny of major music labels.

"'We are offering much more than just a kiosk. We are offering retailers a media-on-demand system with coordinated Web sites that will allow retailers to reach customers in stores and at home,' said Bob French, Mix & Burn's president.

"The Music Tablet sends digital songs directly to Windows Media-compliant portable players in a retail environment. The availability of major-label content will drive the success of media-on-demand solutions for the music retailer, eliminating the headaches of physical inventory and forecasting, therefore increasing revenues.

"'This is an easy way for traditional music retailers to get on the digital highway,' said Ezra Davidson, EVP of business development, SyncCast. 'Our partners, like Mix & Burn, use our technology to provide complete turnkey solutions for retailers -- these are tremendous new revenue opportunities for retailers,' added Davidson."
