— New CD Text inclusion offers DJs enhanced organizational and playback capabilities —

ITASCA, IL, July 13, 2005 — Denon DJ and program music provider ERG Music recently announced a new CD Text Enabled function compatible with all Denon DJ CD/MP3 players. Currently in rotation with leading DJs, radio programmers and jukebox operators, ERG Music combines today’s hottest tracks with the latest technology for the ultimate DJ experience.

ERG Music, the leading music subscription service specializing in the requirements of professional users, distributes 26 music compilations each month across North America, now including convenient CD Text protocol for easy file search and manipulation. CD Text is an extension of the existing Red Book audio CD standard which adds the ability to store text and graphical information like album titles, artist names, and song titles on a music CD. ERG Music services now offers this convenient CD Text feature on all of their music releases which can be displayed on all Denon DJ CD/MP3 players. With this powerful file identification tool DJ’s can quickly and easily locate tracks for playback, allowing instant recognition of vital data for real-time performance selection. Furthermore, Denon allows DJs to scan for their next track while in mid-song with the convenience of their exclusive Next Track Reserve function, which, in conjunction with the ERG Music’s included CD text, fully utilizes Denon DJ’s user-friendly, professional interface.

Peter Papageorge, Director of Sales and Marketing for D&M Professional, stated, “We are pleased that ERG Music continues to take their own delivery methods to the next level, allowing even closer integration between DJs and content providers. The CD Text function is a standard feature among all Denon DJ CD players. By integrating these key elements into our products, we can continue to propel artists towards a more musical experience.”
