iMemories Launches SafetyNet GPS Tracking Technology to Provide the Ultimate Protection for Shipment of Irreplaceable Home Movies

Consumers Now Have Option for an Added Layer of Security When Shipping Treasured Memories to Be Converted From Film and VHS to DVD

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - iMemories, the exclusive Internet-based destination for preserving, customizing and sharing home movies, continues to transform the way people enjoy family video memories by becoming the first and only service to offer GPS tracking technology to safeguard a customer's shipment of original home movies. SafetyNet™ provides even greater peace of mind by using three-dimensional satellite mapping imagery and cell phone tracking technologies to locate an iMemories SafeShip™ Kit anytime, anywhere.

As millions of priceless memories are deteriorating in Americans' closets, iMemories has become a trusted brand to rescue family treasures trapped on film, videotape, slides, negatives and photos. iMemories makes it simple and safe for consumers to ship their aging media assets to be digitally re-mastered, easily enjoyed and shared -- online and on DVD. iMemories makes it easy to unlock and share memories, providing families with the lasting joy, laughter and nostalgia unleashed by watching precious home movies.

The durable, state-of-the-art iMemories SafetyNet GPS units have been developed with enhanced sensitivity allowing:

--  Real-time coordinates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
--  Indoor and outdoor on-demand reporting and tracking capabilities
--  Alerts if the package is too hot or too cold, making sure media assets
    are always protected from extreme weather conditions
--  Instant interactions with authorized cell phones allowing iMemories or
    a shipping representative to initiate vibrating pager technology to
    immediately locate a package
    

"While iMemories' customers have never experienced a lost package from any of our shipping providers, as the leader in the industry, we felt that advanced GPS tracking technology could be leveraged to provide our customers with the ultimate protection for their irreplaceable memories being shipped to iMemories," said Mark Rukavina, Founder & CEO. "GPS tracking for iMemories SafeShip Kits is an innovative approach that provides a genuine recovery mechanism if a package were to be lost in transit. While other providers offer no assurance or small claim shipping insurance compensation, GPS tracking provides what our customers would want from iMemories, should their package become lost -- to find their box of original and priceless memories."
