DiamondWare Named to the 2005 "pulver 100"

Cutting-edge Software Platform for Converged Applications Invites Critical Acclaim From pulvermedia

MESA, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 7, 2005 -- DiamondWare today announced that it has been named to the 2005 "pulver 100" -- the VoIP industry's premiere listing of privately held growth companies representing the future of the communications ecosystem. DiamondWare has been named to the list due to its strong positioning as the underlying open source foundation for converged applications on IP networks.

Since 1994, DiamondWare has been improving sound quality on computers, recently extending that capability to multiple applications traversing numerous verticals. Its two flagship products -- Wi-Fone, a SIP softphone marketed via channel partners, and DW Platform, a 3D audio conferencing platform -- have been sold through verticals as disparate as the gaming industry, military and telcos, showcasing the vast opportunities that can be realized by adding a layer of convergence to any application on the Internet.

For example, one of DiamondWare's military customers has licensed the DW Platform to deliver robust intercom solutions to US Special Forces. The same DW Platform, applied to the gaming industry, can add realism to a computer game, by creating a natural-feeling audio experience that significantly enhances players' perception of the playing field. Tying in presence management and opportunistic meetings allows users to see if their buddies are online and start a pickup game.

"The pulver 100 is the VoIP industry's first and foremost award listing, and it continues to grow in significance, because companies like DiamondWare continue to spread IP communications via next generation software and converged applications that leverage both the ubiquity and flexibility of the web," said Jeff Pulver, Founder and Chairman of pulvermedia. "We're proud to name DiamondWare to this year's pulver 100."

"We are honored to be included again in the pulver 100," said Keith Weiner, CEO of DiamondWare. "DiamondWare's solutions -- delivered via key channels to consumers, enterprises and the military -- are bringing about advanced converged services that will drive the phase of communication. We appreciate pulvermedia for recognizing our continuing success as one of the leading players enabling the convergence of multiple applications on next generation networks."

DiamondWare will be exhibiting at pulvermedia's Fall 2005 VON Conference at Booth #833.

Originally introduced in 2002, the pulver 100 features private companies in the communications sector that have substantial real-world deployments and enjoy significant growth rates. The value chain characterized by pulver 100 differs from the vertically integrated telecom model of the last century, focusing more on a networking-industry model that espouses open interfaces, connectivity decoupled from services, and software decoupled from hardware.

Founded in 1994, DiamondWare is dedicated to bringing about true application convergence across IP networks. Since 1998, its management has brought that passion and expertise to Voice over IP, leveraging its patent-pending technology to enhance all aspects of VoIP, most recently including conference calling and mobility. DiamondWare's robust platform enables the delivery of 3D stereo conferencing in high-definition audio, providing unsurpassed intelligibility, lack of fatigue, and speaker identification. The company layers on integration with other applications, including chat, presence management and collaborative conferencing to empower multiple verticals with complete communications solutions. A profitable company with no debt or outside investors, DiamondWare sells its audio software platform and applications to the US military as well as the commercial markets.
