"Providing this content download option is a natural progression for Sony Creative Software as it offers additional value and convenience to our user community who have told us that having immediate access to royalty-free music and video content is critical to their creative workflow," said Dave Chaimson, Sony Creative Software vice president of global marketing. "No matter what part of the world they are from, producers can now browse, audition, purchase, and download Sony Creative Software content anytime they desire without having to interrupt the production process. Due to the lower costs of digital delivery, we can also offer our users discounted pricing while compounding their savings on shipping costs."

Additional new download-only titles will be added to the online catalog on a regular basis.
