New Kaon v-OSK Presenter Delivers Interactive Experiences to the Big Screen

To Engage and Captivate Large Audiences, Kaon v-OSK Presenter™ Brings Interactive Presentations to Projection Systems, Video Walls and Large Monitors

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - Kaon Interactive, Inc., creators of interactive sales and marketing solutions that bring products to life, today announced the launch of its presentation technology, the Kaon v-OSK Presenter™. A high-definition, integrated touch screen appliance, the Kaon v-OSK Presenter allows Kaon's dynamic, 3D interactive product models and system demonstrations to be viewed simultaneously on a secondary display via a projection system, video wall, or large monitor, to reach and engage larger audiences.

Perfect for keynote speeches, training sessions, tradeshow presentations and other larger audience venues, the Kaon v-OSK Presenter seamlessly projects Kaon's interactive applications -- in real time -- while maintaining superior quality. Through dynamic interactivity and product visualization, Kaon's applications weave together 3D model demonstrations, interactive flow diagrams, video, PDF documents and presentations, simplifying sophisticated product stories in a compelling and captivating way.

Complementing the Kaon v-OSK®, which is used extensively as the premier interactive platform for one-on-one and small group demonstrations, the new Kaon v-OSK Presenter delivers the incredible realism and interactivity of Kaon's solutions to larger audience forums. Executives, sales teams and marketing managers presenting to any audience are now able to demonstrate products from every angle, showcasing features and options such as opening drawers and changing components -- an experience akin to having a product in hand. Furthermore, in addition to presentation features such as circling items and pointing to specific elements on a digital display, the Kaon v-OSK Presenter allows individuals to crop and zoom in on segments to highlight important features. This engaging, interactive approach bolsters audience attention span and enhances information retention.

"The ability to take a customizable, interactive presentation to larger audiences offers all kinds of benefits," said Ori Ben-Moshe, Senior Manager, Technical Product Marketing at ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions. "We are able to better articulate -- and differentiate -- our platforms' features and advantages, as well as our messaging. This dramatically enhances the dynamics of information delivery and allows us to tell a more compelling story, for a more memorable presentation, and ultimately more effective marketing and sales tool."

The Kaon v-OSK Presenter is an all-in-one, fully integrated system comprised of a presenter workstation and a universal connection supporting a variety of video output configurations, including projectors, video walls and secondary monitors.

"The ability to engage and captivate customers and prospects is increasingly more difficult to achieve as expectations evolve and new, interactive technologies emerge," said Gavin Finn, president and CEO of Kaon Interactive. "And, when you've got a large audience, the difficulty increases exponentially."

Finn continued, "The Kaon v-OSK Presenter draws large audiences into an engaging experience through dynamic interactivity and 3D virtual product visualization that is tailored to the audience's specific needs, and responses to their questions. This makes for a truly interactive environment regardless of the size of the audience."

Recent Kaon accolades include:

-- The MITX (Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange) 'Interactive/Online Business' Award

-- Trade Show Executive Magazine's International 'Innovation' Award

-- Named one of "10 Technologies That Are Changing Event Marketing" by Event Marketer Magazine

-- EXHIBITOR 2008 Conference 'Buyer's Choice' Award
