Music Publishers

As a music publisher, you are faced with the challenge of creating added value bonus materials that make titles more attractive for purchase.

ZOO works with music publishers to remove the complexity and cost from creating and localizing bonus content. We use the power of cloud computing to give you a simpler, smarter, faster way to get things done.

Read on for more details about some of the specific problems we have solved for music publishers…

iTunes LP

Problem: How do I create iTunes LP material without it costing us a fortune?

Solution #311:  Use ZOOpost to guarantee everything is in the correct format.

  • Do you need to be able to create iTunes LPs for a music album, including all of the special features such as lyrics, photos, videos, credits, and more?
  • Have your current vendors struggled to meet Apple’s demanding requirements for product compliance?
  • Do you need to localize your iTunes submissions for distribution in multiple languages?

The ZOO approach

  • Our software can create iTunes LP packages quickly and easily. We are able to repurpose designs and files created previously for other platforms to enable efficient production of titles, and prepare the essential meta-data needed for submitting the materials to Apple.
  • We enable music publishers to create products in-house. We have developed software so that these complex titles can be created without requiring technical specialists. The result is an easy to use product for creating engaging, content-rich iTunes LPs using the publisher’s internal staff at lower cost than outsourcing.
  • Our software manages localization. Adapting digital music products so that they may be published in other languages is a painless process using our software, enabling international product versions to be created quickly and easily.
