New York, NY (PRWEB) January 01, 2012
Copia Interactive, LLC, creator of one of the largest, independent, full-‐featured digital content platforms, announced today a partnership with Catch Media, Inc. to enhance Copia’s social content platform with Catch Media’s Play Anywhere technology, allowing music-‐lovers to access their entire music collection from any device, anywhere and at any time, while enjoying all the social features Copia brings to digital content.
Copia is a single software platform that unites content, community, collaboration, and commerce to deliver digital content across an array of devices. It is the only platform designed to provide a single portal to all of a users’ digital content and social activity, creating a unified experience unrivaled in the market. In addition to Tier-‐1 content availability, Copia users enjoy a richer experience and deeper engagement with content and community, driving greater consumption — and greater revenues for Copia and its partners. Copia’s “Powered by Copia” white-‐label solutions bring the advantages of its platform to Copia’s partners in the media, hardware, telecom and other related industries.
With features such as a digital store with a music catalog of over 9 million songs, in-‐song note-‐taking and sharing, group chat, shareable playlists, playlist comparison, activity feeds, unique self-‐publishing tools, user recommendations, a proprietary community value system, and more, Copia users enjoy a singular, wholly shareable on-‐line experience — all their media, all their friends, all in one application.
With the addition of Catch Media’s Play Anywhere technology, Copia offers its users new features for legally acquiring new music, accessing their existing music library, streaming it to any device, and synchronizing the library among all the user’s devices.
“Our partnership with Catch Media creates an in-‐depth listening experience that is bolstered by a community of involved and excited users”, states Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia Interactive. “It’s a forum for people who wish to truly engage with their music, both socially and personally”, he adds.
“By teaming up with Catch Media, Copia is offering the most robust music listening experience around”, says Yaacov Ben-‐Yaacov, founder and CEO of Catch Media, adding “Copia is the perfect platform for Catch Media’s already impressive music experience”.
Copia is a hardware-‐neutral platform: multiple devices offer the same content experience, and users can choose their own hardware. Users can access content on all their devices, and Copia keeps everything up to date through the cloud. Copia is available now on a multiplicity of devices, including desktop readers, iPad, Windows 7 touch, Android tablets, and the Blackberry Playbook.
