Immediatek Inc., creator of NetBurn Secure‰ digital delivery and copy control solutions, announced that its concert recording unit, DiscLive Inc., successfully used for the first time its NetBurn™ technology in a live concert environment: The Pixies sold-out show at the Brixton Academy (London) available to music fans only a few hours after the performance ended.
According to Zach Bair, CEO and founder of Immediatek, The Pixies offer comprises 1,500 limited-edition, premium collectible CDs per show that are available to order from DiscLive’s Website, www.disclive.com. Each purchase includes a special access code that allows music fans to download and burn that night’s concert on their home computer over the Internet. In addition to the 1,500 individually numbered collector’s units, each show is available to 1,000 music fans on a NetBurn-only option.
“These European shows will be ‘record-only,’ meaning that we will not have Disclive’s on-site manufacturing system at the tour site,” said Bair. “Therefore, by making NetBurns available, we are providing almost instant gratification for fans so that they can enjoy the music of The Pixies while they are awaiting delivery of their collectible CD.”
Sami Valkonen, president of DiscLive, said that the pace in which the Pixies April tour CDs sold out took everyone by surprise. “We love working with The Pixies and treasure our relationship with the band, and look forward to continuing our relationship on their fall tour.”
