Isolation Network, Inc (“IN”) is a leading digital media infrastructure company specializing in media distribution and enterprise software solutions. With the demise of Napster in 2001 and the birth of iTunes and other online retailers, Robb McDaniels (Founder & CEO), saw an opportunity for a different kind of music distribution company.
In 2002, Robb formed Isolation Network (“IN”), the parent company of INgrooves, INscribe Digital and ONE Digital Technologies. San Francisco-based INgrooves, began attracting independent music companies and artists from all over the world. They forged early relationships with digital retailers like iTunes in the U.S. and abroad. As a digital-only distribution company, INgrooves developed a deep understanding of the myriad of developing digital formats in the endlessly evolving global marketplace, enabling their independent clients to become more accessible to fans, resulting in greater sales and success in the digital marketplace.
From the company’s inception in 2002 through to the present day, INgrooves has averaged a phenomenal rate of sales growth of 70% per year.
In 2008, Universal Music Group (“UMG”), the largest record company in the world, tapped Isolation Network to digitally distribute all of UMG’s music in North America via the ONE Digital platform. The association with UMG, along with the overall momentum with its independent label clients all over the world, resulted in a 10x increase in transaction volume flowing through the company’s worldwide distribution platform.
Shamrock Capital (“Shamrock”) made a significant investment in the company in 2010, which enabled the company to continue to invest in its distribution platform and distribute even more of UMG’s global content to YouTube.
IN sought to diversify by leveraging the ONE Digital platform to enter the eBook market in 2010. Since its entry into the market, INscribe Digital has signed deals with authors and publishers to distribute more than 20,000 titles and has quickly proven to be a major player in the independent eBook sector.
Isolation Network acquired Fontana Distribution from UMG in March of 2012 with another capital investment by Shamrock, adding more than 200 labels to the company’s roster in North America and giving it a strong physical distribution platform to offer clients alongside their unmatched digital platform.
IN is currently celebrating it’s 11th year in operation.
