netTALK.com Teams With Broadcast International to Offer New OTT Service

Broadcast International's CodecSys Provides Encoding Platform for netTALK TV's Triple Play

SALT LAKE CITY, UT and MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Broadcast International (OTCQB: BCST) and netTALK.com (OTCQB: NTLK) have teamed to provide a triple play OTT video for netTALK's 1,000,000+ subscribers. The announcement was made jointly today from Salt Lake City, UT and Miami, FL.

"netTALK is expanding its services to include video and rich media programming services in an easy-to-use alternative to traditional linear programming at appealing prices," commented Steve Jones, vice president and general manager of the CodecSys Division. "The joint effort between netTALK and Broadcast International demonstrates our dedication and ability to support alternative media delivery methods. We're delighted to play a pivotal role in furthering netTALK's commitment to quality and enhancing their product menu as they grow."

CodecSys' patented, breakthrough, multi-codec compression software cuts video bandwidth requirements over satellite, cable, IP and wireless networks to enable a new generation of applications such as streaming video to computers and mobile devices.

netTALK TV, an extension of netTALK's Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service, will bring customers a total communications and entertainment experience by permitting access to entertaining and meaningful online video content quickly and easily via OTT or as a VOD playback service.

"Here at netTALK we're always looking to increase our offerings of high quality, low cost, easy to use communication and technology products and this includes our expansion into the entertainment category," says Cedric Guillory, senior director of marketing at netTALK.com.

He states: "CodecSys was selected after a rigorous testing and evaluation process that included quality assessment by both netTALK customers and by a random sampling of consumers. CodecSys was singled out for its flexibility, overall quality, performance, and lower bandwidth resulting in cost savings beginning at implementation and throughout the life of the project." He goes on to say, "We are pleased to be moving forward with this partnership which helps extend our brand offerings and also maintain the quality and value our customers have come to expect from netTALK."

netTALK TV, currently in beta-testing, will officially launch in early 2013.
