Gen2Media (OTCBB: GTWO) to Provide High Definition Playback System for "Star Wars: In Concert"

Providing a Live Digital Video Experience for a Generation of Fans, Gen2Media Helps Bring the Magic of John Williams' Score to Life

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Gen2Media (OTCBB: GTWO), a full-service video technology and production company, has been selected to provide the high definition video playback system for the nation-wide tour of "Star Wars: In Concert." Gen2Media teamed with NEP Screenworks, which provided a giant high-definition LED screen that is one of the largest ever taken on tour. The video, provided by LucasFilms, Ltd, contains clips of fan-favorite scenes from all six of the legendary movies and accompanies the stirring orchestral creations of legendary composer John Williams.

"Providing a custom solution for such a video-driven show was a big challenge," said Ian McDaniel, CIO and co-founder of Gen2Media. "It had to be easy to operate for the video director, but robust enough to deliver uncompressed quality, high definition video, and multi-channel audio to a discerning audience. The result is spectacular."

Gen2Media has developed a variety of proprietary technologies, such as Gen2Media Producer and Gen2Media Green HD, that make their live show video presentations easier to create and manage. Mark Argenti, CEO and co-founder of Gen2Media, said, "Star Wars, a name long associated with innovative technical achievements and immersive entertainment, was a pleasure to work with. Our live floor show uses our innovative tech to showcase their cinematic achievements in HD, while the audience hears some of movie history's most recognizable music."
