The RipFactory launches media shift services in New Zealand
New Zealanders can now get their CD library ripped into an array of digital music formats effortlessly thanks to The RipFactory, New Zealand’s first legitimate CD Ripping service.

The company has just launched and says that until now, converting your entire CD collection into digital music was a time consuming, complex and frustrating process generating inconsistent results.

The RipFactory offers a service that can save between eight to ten minutes per CD that a user just to convert a CD into digital music. Multiply that amount of time by your entire CD collection and then add the countless hours spent adding consistent track metadata (e.g. artist, genre and album art etc.) and the whole DIY CD conversion quickly becomes a real chore.

Also because The RipFactory uses commercial music databases it is able to apply consistent track information to all music and maintain the same high quality digital audio parameters throughout the collection.

The RipFactory supports high quality 320Kbps MP3, lossless WMA, FLAC audio, 192Kbps AAC, .Wav. Users can choose up to two formats when converting.

All ripped music is licensed on a per CD basis to the CD's owner with The RipFactory paying a licensing fee to PPNZ (Phonographic Performance New Zealand). All ripped files are also watermarked protecting the entire ecosystem from illegal sharing. The watermark provides traceability for each audio file generated by The RipFactory by allowing full ‘track and trace’ facilities of each file if it is shared on illegal music sharing services.

Users interested in the service need to visit The RipFactory website, where an online guide will step through the entire process entering in the number of CDs the user wants to rip into digital music, selecting the medium (DVD-R media, a Maxtor NAS Drive or MP3 player) and format.
