CMWare Names Michael K. Powell to Its Board of Directors

Consumer Digital Rights Supporter and Former FCC Chairmen Enlisted to Guide Company Growth

PLAINSBORO, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- CMWare, Inc., a leading provider of PC place-shifting solutions for mobile carriers, today announced the immediate appointment of the Honorable Michael K. Powell, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to its board of directors.

In his capacity on the board, Powell will guide the company as it continues to develop its myMobileMedia™ service. As FCC chairman, Powell was perhaps best known for his initiatives that encouraged market-driven solutions that promoted consumer interests. Powell's consumer-centered platforms were based on his assessment of the current state of technology as voice, video and data technologies moved away from analog platforms to more powerful digital technologies, and he recognized the impact emerging technology would have on people's lives.

"Consumers want to be able to access their media through their mobile devices anywhere and at any time and companies like CMWare are leading this revolution," said Powell. "CMWare is taking place-shifting technology to new levels."

CMWare has developed its patent-pending place-shifting technology since 2003. Its myMobileMedia service is the first complete, turn-key PC place-shifting solution for mobile carriers that reliably streams digital media from subscribers' PCs to their mobile devices in any format, including music files, pictures, and DRM-protected content.

"More than 300 million mobile MP3 players were sold in 2006, outpacing iPod sales by five to one. Providing mobile users 24/7 remote access to their complete PC media collection on any mobile handset is a challenge that CMWare is uniquely positioned to meet," said J. Gerard Aguilar, president and chief technical officer, CMWare. "During his tenure as FCC chairman, Michael Powell was a known advocate in the area of consumer rights and we are honored to have him serve on our board. His insight and experience will guide CMWare as we continue to break new ground in the place-shifting industry."

Prior to his seven-and-half year post with the FCC, Powell served as the chief of staff of the Antitrust Division in the Department of Justice and as an associate in the law firm of O'Melveny & Myers. Before starting his legal career, he was a policy advisor to former Secretary of Defense, Richard B. Cheney. Additionally, Powell served in the military as a cavalry officer in the United States Army.

Powell joins others who are currently serving on the board: Raul Fernandez, chairman and CEO of ObjectVideo; J. Gerard Aguilar; Tim Meyers, general partner, Updata Partners; and Dale Skran, vice president of engineering, CMWare.
