Jamba claims to be the first mobile content provider in Europe to offer Digital Rights Management (DRM) free music for the mobile and the PC and DRM free music from EMI will be available on all Jamba/Jamster portals. Jamba says it plans to deliver its entire music collection of over 1.5 million songs to mobile handsets entirely DRM free.
Jamba's music service is available through both mobile handsets and PCs, and the new DRM free tracks will be sent to users through a dual delivery system. This means that an MP3 version will be sent to PCs to ensure top sound quality, while compressed AAC+ files are sent to the mobile. The AAC+ files perfectly balance top quality sound and file size to ensure fast downloading and increased storage.
Ian Whitfield, Director Digital Business Development for EMI Music said: "As the first major music company to make all of our digital downloads available for sale without DRM, EMI's objective is to deliver more music to more people with the flexibility and ease of use they want."
