Plug & Play Digital Content

MediaCAST provides you with the unique option of selecting what content you would like in your digital library. By purchasing one or more of the digital content packages, you allow teachers and students immediate access to tens of thousands of digital media titles. Some schools may want to purchase an empty digital library platform, and while that is possible, the encoding of analog to digital content takes time. If you supplement your analog resources with Plug & Play content, you can take full advantage of your new MediaCAST system right away. 

All of the content from the publishers detailed below comes with detailed metadata for easy searching, copyright and licensing, and state standards integration.
