Abizat Unveils New Model For Commercializing Virtual Communities

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Media Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, NEWS RELEASE--(CCNMatthews - April 30, 2007) - Caden Media Corporation ("CMC"), a media technology services company, released today the pre-launch program for its Abizat networking portal, which introduces a new model for commercializing user-generated content and fully capitalizing on the value of virtual communities.

Abizat is the first of four market-specific community portals which CMC projects to roll out in 2007, and presents a full-featured social networking community for people and enterprises engaged in actively sourcing and building opportunities of a commercial or other economic nature.

The AbiZAT portal is built on CMC's Atrigo NCM (Networked Content Management) platform, which is an integrated suite of software applications and processes packaged to offer a single enterprise-level system for operating virtual networking communities. Portal operators and members access Atrigo's feature-rich content management system through a web browser to easily create and manage their digital content. Integrated with traditional networking features, backend administration and financial tools, and technologies that also enable members to license, distribute, monitor and retire content published both in-network or on third-party web sites, Atrigo introduces an innovative, comprehensive model for commercializing user-generated content and fully capitalizing on the value of virtual communities.

CMC will manage Abizat's pre-launch program with a mandate to recruit qualified beta members for key internal positions, and to attract channel partners integral to the long-term success of the enterprise. This initial build-out is projected to run through the third quarter of 2007, during which Abizat will be structured to operate as a wholly independent corporate entity.

Moving forward, Abizat is to be a self-sustaining, member driven and managed community, with a financial model that represents the interests of an active membership and equity-based partnerships. CMC will provide primary backend technical support and retain a minority position pursuant to a perpetual licensing agreement for the Atrigo NCM platform. /For further information: For additional information about Abizat and the opportunities available for participating in its pre-launch program, visit or IN: FINANCE, MEDIA, MINING, SOCIAL, TECHNOLOGY
