Seattle-based Loudeye Technologies added this week three international companies to its growing list of customers.
Seattle.internet.com has learned that United Kingdom’s Freeserve, Sweden’s Musicbrigade and Hong Kong’s HNH International will all be using Loudeye’s digital media services.
Freeserve, a broadband video portal with over 1.9 million active registered members, has chosen Loudeye to encode its audio and video content.
Loudeye will be servicing the UK customer via its recently opened London office.
On the Scandinavian front, Loudeye will be teaming up with Sweden-based musicbrigade.com to create music video programming through user defined channels.
On the Asian front, Hong Kong-based HNH International will use Loudeye’s digital media infrastructure for enabling the digital distribution and online sales of their vast classical music catalog from their Naxos and Marco Polo recording labels.
According to Loudeye’s Founder and CEO Martin Tobias, the company’s deals with Freeserve, musicbrigade.com, and HNH are representative of the global recognition of the power and effectiveness of streaming audio and video technologies.
Tobias told seattle.internet.com that he believes that the increasing interest in Loudeye’s digital media infrastructure crosses both music and video genres and geographical borders.
“With these latest agreements in place and the opening of our London office, Loudeye is poised to become the leader in digital media solutions for the global marketplace,” says Tobias.
