ExtendMedia Hosts Interactive Webinar on "The Media Consumption Evolution: Leveraging the Online Video Craze"

Webinar Showcases Digital Content Innovation in the Consumer Electronics Industry

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2008) - ExtendMedia Corporation, a provider of digital content services software, today will host a complimentary Webinar with experts from Digital Tech Consulting, Inc. (DTC) and SanDisk at 1:00 pm ET to discuss how leading consumer electronics manufacturers can tap into the demand for anytime, anywhere consumption to sell more devices.

In today's interactive world, consumers want to customize content and create their own viewing experiences -- demanding the ability to watch content when, how and where they want. To retain current customers, expand reach and sell more devices, forward-thinking consumer electronics (CE) companies are tapping into the demand for anytime, anywhere consumption by developing innovative devices linked to digital content. Furthermore, content owners themselves are working with these CE companies to optimize advertising campaigns and better target consumers. ExtendMedia helps consumer electronics manufacturers, content owners, distributors and advertising partners keep up with the digital video boom to meet the rising consumer demand and make the three-screen (PC-TV-Mobile) model a reality.

          Online Video Craze"

Consumers are increasingly drawn to online video content, but still prefer the comfort and ease of traditional viewing environments. In fact, the "Broadband Content and Services 2007" study by market research and consulting firm Horowitz Associates recently found that while traditional TV remains the preferred platform, six out of 10 high-speed Internet users watch or download online video content at least once a week, and as much as 86 percent do so on a monthly basis -- a significant increase over last year's findings.

Attendees will learn about:

--  CE industry trends and challenges in the digital media landscape
--  The evolution of digital media and the importance of the three-screen
    (PC-TV-Mobile) viewing model
--  How content distributors are maintaining flexible advertising
    campaigns and monetizing digital content
--  Best practices for creating innovative consumer devices aligned with
    business goals to keep up with the digital video boom
--  SanDisk's recent launch of its interactive PC-to-TV media device and
    service to consumers
