Impart Media Group and Advanced Method Announce 'Concierge'

New Interactive Kiosk to Reduce Staffing Needs and Enrich the Hotel Guest Experience

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- Impart™ Media Group, Inc. (OTCBB: IMMG), a provider of end-to-end networked digital signage solutions for the enhanced delivery of information, brand marketing, merchandising, and advertising, and Advanced Method, one of the nation's top designers of rich-media content, announced today a new interactive touch screen kiosk product called 'Concierge,' which is tailored to a hotel's specific needs, with a variety of tools and features that will enrich the guest experience.

The functional benefits built within 'Concierge' include:

--  Up-to-date meeting and event schedules with way finding maps.
--  Hotel amenities and restaurant menus.
--  Local guide with third party ad space.
--  Motion graphics, audio and video features.
--  Remote content management system with real-time updates.
The kiosk's displayed information can be mirrored on multiple screens at the hotel property or even utilized in conjunction with the hotel's guest services intranet. The hotel has complete control over all content, with instant updates to the kiosk, via an online content management system. The 'Concierge' product line offers a complete turnkey solution, including all of the equipment, network backend, and 24/7 support.

The hotel only needs to provide for the AC power, broadband Internet, and wall (or floor) space accommodations.

The easy-to-install, space-saving equipment consists of mobile freestanding or wall hung enclosures, 32" or 42" vertical touch screen LCD displays, and the Impart IQ Interactive™ media player. Wireless options are also available to conveniently connect to the hotel's broadband Internet or LAN.

According to Robert Grawet, Impart's Global Director of Digital Media, "With the introduction of 'Concierge,' Impart and Advanced Method have introduced an entirely new concept in the world of interactive digital signage. A complete, pre-packaged solution that is easy to understand, with simple configuration options for the equipment layout and the creation of relevant and localized content, and a very fast turnaround for installation. We spent the last two years examining feasibility studies on interactive technologies in the hotel sector and on how best to introduce a beneficial communications instrument that can be location-unique to the hotel, but mass scalable for us. By taking this collaborative approach, we bring a more cost-effective and easier-to-deploy solution that the hospitality industry has never seen previously."

Keith Sawka, Advanced Method's Director of Hospitality, added, "'Concierge' is built to support the efforts of the hotel in creating a memorable guest experience. This is a win-win situation because guests can now get the information they need right at their fingertips and the hotel can generate revenue simultaneously."

'Concierge' will start shipping in quantity, May 2007.
