NASHVILLE, NEW YORK, HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (April 2, 2002)
615 Music Library, Manhattan Production Music, Megatrax Production Music, Omni Music
Library and VideoHelper, the nation's most innovative and creative music companies, have joined
forces to launch LIBRARYTRACKS.COM, a first-of-its-kind site on the internet to provide an
unparalleled array of production music library services to a worldwide audience at this year's
National Association of Broadcasters national convention in Las Vegas April 8-11, 2002.
The five allied companies, who are equal partners in the site, represent the industry's most
forward thinking and successful music libraries, creating music and SFX for thousands of radio
and television stations, as well as for film companies, advertising agencies and multi-media
applications. Among the combined client rosters of the LIBRARYTRACKS.COM companies are
the most familiar and biggest names in broadcast and film, including all major U.S. television
networks, virtually every major U.S. cable network and numerous major motion pictures.
The five music libraries offer online access to more than 700 CDs with plans to add about
150 CDs each year.
LIBRARYTRACKS.COM uses Microsoft ASF (audio streaming format) to allow visitors to the
site to stream, audition and digitally download available music. The LIBRARYTRACKS.COM site
will link to all five companies' sites and the search engine for LIBRARYTRACKS.COM will operate
across all catalogs.
LIBRARYTRACKS.COM is working with Verance Corporation to digitally watermark all music
in the libraries for ease of performance and use reporting through ASCAP, BMI and SESAC. The
site was developed by Freshground Software featuring the "Music Source" search software.
