iMedia Makes It Possible to Measure Success of CD-ROM and DVD Marketing Campaigns With iReporting™

Proprietary Audience Reporting and Tracking System Now Available for All CD-ROM and DVD Producers and Replicators

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - iMedia International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IMED), a provider of digital entertainment content for the publishing industry, today announced that its proprietary CD-ROM and DVD audience reporting and tracking system, iReporting™, is now available as a standalone product to independent CD-ROM and DVD producers and replicators across the country. iReporting, which is a critical fixture on all iMedia CD-ROM and DVD productions, allows companies in real time to access individual metrics on usage and click-thrus of multimedia optical discs.

"With CD-ROM and DVD marketing campaigns, many companies are left hoping that the recipient is interacting with the direct mail piece because they simply don't have any means of measuring if or how their discs are being used," said Henry Williamson, chief executive officer of iMedia International. "iReporting removes the guesswork by providing built-in analytics to help our clients understand how recipients are interacting with the discs. Companies that integrate iReporting into their campaigns will know if their messages were seen and what specific web traffic and sales were driven from their marketing investment."

From iReporting's Web-based interface, companies will be able to review a variety of audience activity tracking data, sorted by time of day, zip code, city and/or state, including:

--  When a consumer puts the disc into the computer;
--  How long the disc is watched;
--  What content the consumer looks at or watches the most or least;
--  What advertisements have been viewed; and
--  What web links have been clicked.
    

Williamson added, "With iReporting, we know immediately what did and did not work on the disc, and we can quickly provide our customers, advertisers and sponsors with a clear understanding of ROI."

iReporting is designed for companies looking to connect with their consumers through CD-ROM or DVD-based marketing campaigns, as well as producers of DVD videos and movies. iMedia can seamlessly integrate iReporting directly onto any production disc to provide real-time tracking and reporting of end-user activity. iReporting does not use cookies or spyware and does not collect personal end-user information.
