Portal Player Names Japanese Distributor

PortalPlayer Inc., a supplier of solutions for delivering open and secure digital media via the Internet, Friday added a distribution partner in Japan.

Macnica will distribute the Tango Digital Media Player/Recorder platform, which PortalPlayer introduced this week.

"As both a technology provider and development partner to its own customers, Macnica enhances our own strategy to deliver time-to-market solutions," said John Mallard, president and chief executive officer of PortalPlayer.

The Tango platform enables manufacturers to produce portable digital music and voice players/recorders that are compliant with all security and rights management requirements of the Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI).
