iPoint-media Enables New Video Dating Services Over 3G Mobile

Vitrage GOvideoDating Promises Mass Calling Opportunity for Mobile Operators and Content Providers

NEWBURY, UK--(Marketwire - May 19, 2008) - iPoint-media (LSE: IPNT), a provider of live, interactive video applications and delivery platforms for web, 3G mobile and media, announces the release of Vitrage GOvideoDating, a new interactive video dating delivery platform designed for use with 3G mobile phones. GOvideoDating enables existing dating services, mobile operators and service providers to quickly and easily deploy video dating services on any 3G network and benefit from new revenue opportunities derived from 3G video calls.

GOvideoDating offers users a new interactive video dating experience, enabling anyone with a 3G video enabled mobile phone (UMTS, HSPDA, HSUPDA) to search for and interact with other video daters. A wide range of functionality enriches the dating experience, including the ability to create personal profiles and recorded video greetings; basic and advanced search options; sending, receiving and viewing recorded video messages; as well as the ability to engage in live video-chats with other logged in members, without revealing their mobile number.

GOvideoDating is targeted at the rapidly growing mobile dating industry. A recent Juniper Research report estimates that revenues from this industry will push past the $1 billion mark by 2010.

GOvideoDating is offered as a hosted/managed service, enabling carriers, aggregators and service providers to rapidly deploy customized dating services on 3G mobile networks without a capital investment. The platform supports multiple billing methods and offers the flexibility to integrate with existing web or voice dating sites as well as location based services. The platform's advanced web-based interface simplifies the creation, deployment and operation of the dating service.

Joseph Daniel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at iPoint-media, commented:

   "Dating sites are designed to help people find potential partners.
   The ability to see, hear and interact live with others, along with the
   flexibility of doing this at any time using a 3G mobile phone, will
   improve the experience of finding the right partner. GOvideoDating
   empowers dating providers to elevate virtual dating to this new level
   while offering new sources of revenue resulting from the generated
   3G video calling traffic. We believe that premium voice and web dating
   providers can easily deploy GOvideoDating to generate new revenues."

iPoint-media is currently deploying the first GOvideoDating solution with a leading UK voice-based social network service provider. The Company hopes to announce additional European 3G video dating services later in the year.
