OverDrive Announces Media Kiosk Software

Dec 16, 2005

Digital media vendor OverDrive has announced OverDrive Media Kiosk Software, an application that enables Internet connected PCs to become self-service download stations for audiobooks and music. This Windows-based software permits patrons in the library to download copy-protected audiobook and music titles directly to supported MP3/WMA players.

With OverDrive Media Kiosk Software installed at a library's public Internet station, patrons can search the library catalog, locate a title, and then connect a player to the terminal using a USB port or cable. The self-service software enables patrons to take advantage of the library's broadband connection to download and transfer audiobooks, educational materials, or music directly to portable devices.
