FAQs
What is a Digi Album?
Digi Albums are the premier digital album experience, including 3D page turning. As the emerging standard for representing your creative work online, Digi Albums are at the forefront of online music and new media promotion. Digi Albums are a digital representation of a physical CD (including artwork, jewel case and liner notes). The application is based on a Virtual CD / DVD concept, in which consumers are able to listen to music, view photos and video, turn pages, read about featured artists/songs, and download tracks, all within a self-contained unit. Consumers can share music with friends via the Send-To-Friend feature and other viral marketing tools enabling a buzz-generating and community building effect.
