e.Digital Innovations Group (EDIG) Developing Key New Technologies and Partnerships

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - e.Digital Corporation (OTCBB: EDIG), long known as a focal point of commercial innovation, today announced the formation of the e.Digital Innovations Group (EDIG). EDIG's charter is to further e.Digital's history of innovation, develop a new, strong and diverse intellectual property portfolio and to collaborate with strategic partners to bring game-changing technologies and products to market.

"Throughout our twenty-two year history we have created foundational technologies, many of which are at the core of wireless headset, digital audio/video recorder and portable music player markets," said Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital Corporation. "Technology innovation has always been our principal value and our new EDIG business unit has been chartered with innovating and monetizing new technologies that we believe have significant potential for consumer products and industries."

"Our EDIG division is already developing several new technologies and we have claimed rights in the areas of communication networks and digital data distribution," added Falk. "Through EDIG, we expect to develop these and other emergent technologies, secure rights to the technologies and develop strategic relationships with partners who have the resources and infrastructure to leverage EDIG technologies in significant consumer markets."

The EDIG division was formed by reorganizing current personnel and consultants, some previously assigned to entertainment systems development. While e.Digital continues its IFE business and aggressively exploiting its Flash-R™ patent licensing business, the new division focuses talent on novel technologies.

Falk concluded, "We will be releasing further details on some of EDIG's new technologies next quarter in preparation for a planned March meeting of stockholders."
