MediaREADY and Podcast Ready Announce Podcast-Enabled Players
Popular Glider and Aero Models from MediaREADY™ to Come with myPodder™;
Podcast Management Software Pre-installed to Simplify Acquiring Content for Portable Devices
LAS VEGAS, NV USA - (January 10, 2007) — MediaREADY, Inc. (OTCBB: MRED), a leading provider of interactive, media-convergent home entertainment devices, and Podcast Ready, the maker of the first truly portable podcast management software today announced a joint partnership. Beginning in March 2007, select MediaREADY portable media player products will become Podcast Ready-enabled. The MediaREADY Glider and MediaREADY Aero will be the first models to come pre-installed with Podcast Ready’s myPodder™ podcast management software.
Podcast Ready’s myPodder software provides complete podcast portability, unlike other podcast-enabling technologies that are available only on desktop computers. Users can plug the suite of portable MediaREADY devices into any Internet-connected computer and instantly access myPodder to update, subscribe to and manage their favorite audio and video podcasts. Podcast Ready also provides a simple-to-use podcast directory and a “one-click” podcast subscription. The strategic partnership between MediaREADY and Podcast Ready will eventually involve installation of myPodder software on a variety of innovative MediaREADY devices beyond the Glider and Aero lines.
The MediaREADY Glider and Aero products are being showcased at the International Consumer Electronics Show 2007, being held January 8 - 11 in Las Vegas. MediaREADY’s full line of broadband-connected devices will be on display on the show floor at Booth - IP286 in the Innovations Pavilion at the Sands Convention Center.
“The partnership with Podcast Ready is yet another exciting development for MediaREADY and is a great revenue sharing opportunity for us,” said Jeffrey Harrell, President and CEO, MediaREADY, Inc. “As we have previously stated our goal continues to be providing ease for our customers to access digital content with our products; and myPodder software makes the process of finding good content simpler and it’s free to use.”
“We have been very impressed with the MediaREADY portable line and anticipate future innovations within this partnership,” said Russell Holliman, CEO and founder of Podcast Ready. “This relationship is a perfect match of technology and services to meet the increasing consumer demand for podcasts.”
