Black Box Innovations Distribution Channels Commencing

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - Black Box Innovations, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CHDT Corp. (OTCBB: CHDO), today announced expanded US distribution and product placement in the European distribution for its innovative line of secure, portable memory products. The line includes Personal Pocket Safe™ and Secret Diary™, along with the launch of the new Classified Secure Flash Drive™, which is a secure USB flash drive that combines world-class security with universal operability.

"This year has seen retailers hesitant to add new products during their attempts to reduce inventory and SKU count," said John Tate, President of Black Box Innovations. "We are now, however, beginning to get product placement with retailers and see the market opening for new and innovative products at the retail level." Additionally, Black Box Innovations has expanded US product distribution through D&H Distributing. D&H is one of the nation's leading technology distributors specializing in emerging trends across IT, Electronics, Entertainment and Gaming and has been doing so for the past 91 years. D&H will be able to expand the reach of the product line, opening doors to Value-Added Resellers, Direct Market Resellers, Online and Regional Retailers.

"We're happy to carry the Black Box product line, which offers some creative applications for the retail market, in contradiction to the slowdown taking place in commerce," said Rob Eby, Vice President of purchasing at D&H Distributing. "The powerful, military-grade encryption of this technology can be just as valuable to the individual consumer, as in the Personal Pocket Safe unit, as it can be to a business owner looking for the truly secure, portable, data storage capabilities of the Classified Secure Flash Drive model. We want to deliver that kind of range to our customers."

"Recognition from the media and customer feedback over the past year on our product line has far surpassed our expectations. From inclusion on Oprah's O-List to an article in The New York Times and a CES Design and Engineering award, this recognition has set the stage for national distribution," said John Tate. "We have already seen online retailers, such as Amazon.com, carry the product line due to recent D&H efforts, and we have commitments from national mass retailers in Q4 FY2009 on a direct basis." Oprah's O-List is a trademark of Harpo, Inc.

Black Box Innovations has also made initial shipments for European distribution. "Interest from European media, retailers and consumers has been evident from the start, so we are pleased that we are now able to begin entering the proper European channels," said John Tate.
