Universal Music Group and PluggedIn, last week announced an agreement whereby PluggedIn users will have access to thousands of high-definition quality videos from UMG’s extensive roster of chart-topping artists covering every genre of music.
PluggedIn is powered by an innovative new media player that supports high-definition full-screen video playback with no buffering and DVD like controls, a multimedia search engine and fan centric social networking applications. PluggedIn’s Media Player delivers a smooth, uninterrupted, full screen viewing experience and enables fans to watch stunning, HD quality music videos from their favorite artists.
“With more and more consumers discovering and enjoying music videos online, we are confident that fans and artists will quickly embrace the incredibly engaging product the PluggedIn team has put together,” stated Rio Caraeff, Executive Vice President of Universal Music Group’s eLabs. “This is the first time customers will be able to view our videos online at such high quality, and the difference is remarkable.”
“There is no question that music remains a large part of our everyday lives and a key element to the online community experience,” commented Jeff Somers, CEO of PluggedIn. “This strategic partnership is an ideal fit as it provides us and our customers with access to the resources of Universal Music, the world’s largest producer of music programming.”
