@Hand Communications, Pixman's New Reseller in the Netherlands, Signs a Campaign for Telecommunications Company KPN

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Pixman Nomadic Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PMN) ("Pixman") continues its expansion in Europe with the signature of a value-added reseller (VAR) agreement with @Hand Communications, for the distribution of Pixman products and applications in the Netherlands. An initial campaign is already underway for the launch of mobile television by KPN.

"The reaction to Pixman media is very positive and results have exceeded our expectations and those of our client," stated Mathieu Bunjes, head of business development for @Hand Communications. "Furthermore, several brands we've been holding talks with have shown interest for summer campaigns. Pixman will undoubtedly be successful here!"

@Hand Communications is currently carrying out a campaign for the Dutch telecommunications company KPN. The first part has successfully been completed this weekend. Pixman brand ambassadors, strategically positioned near KPN stores, were promoting the brand new Mobile TV, a service that makes it possible to access television networks via mobile phones. Equipped with Samsung P960 cell phones, the teams demonstrated service features to passers-by and handed out raffle tickets that had to be dropped off at points of sale with the goal of attracting new clients and stimulating sales. The campaign will continue at open-air festivals beginning next month.

"This partnership is part of our growth strategy in Europe," said Philippe Gribeauval, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pixman. "This addition will help reinforce our positioning as a key player in the execution of multinational promotional campaigns."

The company is well-known for its quick execution, innovative concepts and its in-house production of technological applications.
