iSIGN Announces That Its IMS 3.0 Software is Capable of Being Embedded Into Cable and Satellite TV Set-Top Boxes

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2010) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ISD) ("iSIGN" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that its Interactive Marketing Solution ("IMS") 3.0 software is capable of being embedded into Set Top Boxes ("STB") used by cable and satellite TV companies, thus allowing coupons and other communications to be delivered to consumers in their homes.

iSIGN's IMS technology can be leveraged within STB platforms supporting satellite, cable and IPTV for delivery of advertisements, product info, vouchers, etc. that is in sync with advertisements viewed by users. User's will be able to take content away from their viewing experience on their phone. This will make TV advertisements measurable and accountable in real-time to advertisers and their agencies.

"iSIGN will be the only company capable of delivering messages in both the digital-out- of-home and in-house markets while capturing consumer responses and data for analytical purposes in any language, for worldwide application," stated Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "With the combination of our patent pending software and back-end system, it will be possible for ads being shown on the TV to be synchronized with the messaging being broadcast by our software, allowing analytical information to be available within minutes of a commercial being run. TV stations would thus have the option up-dating messages being sent by our software to maximize ad campaign effectiveness."

iSIGN's recent out-of–home pilot tests has demonstrated that our technology has the lowest cost per confirmed and received message by viewers. Currently the iSIGN 3.0 solution is an OEM solution to AOpen America Inc.'s media players and is also distributed by BlueStar Inc. to its worldwide Value Added Resellers and their customers.

iSIGN plans to introduce this exclusive and low cost solution to broadcasters and ad agencies before the end of 2010.

iSIGN will be presenting its IMS 3.0 software at the Customer Engagement Technology World trade show at the Javits Convention Centre in New York City on November 10 and 11, 2010. iSIGN will be a part of the AOpen America booth, number 421.
