RGB Networks Is Recognized by Forbes Magazine as One of America's 100 Most Promising Companies

RGB's Success in Multiscreen IP Video Delivery Recognized by Top Business Publication

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - RGB Networks, the leading provider of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery solutions, has been listed by Forbes Magazine as one of America's Most Promising Companies. Through this list Forbes recognizes "... 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital."

"Forbes' ranking of RGB as one of the nation's 100 most promising companies is another validation of our success. This year RGB Networks was selected by the majority of top U.S. cable operators for their trials and deployments of multiscreen IP video services, showing the superiority of RGB's technology and the company's strength in IP video delivery," said Jef Graham, CEO of RGB Networks. "We believe that the ability for consumers to view any video, anywhere, anytime and on any device is key to the continued success of video service providers around the world. As these 'TV Everywhere' services quickly move to widespread availability, and expand to incorporate new multiscreen IP video offerings, RGB is well-positioned to capitalize on the success that we've had to date, taking the company to the next level in the coming year."

"Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: Their fortunes can change very quickly and there's a dearth of public data," says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. "We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluate their health and potential."

To sharpen its search, Forbes teamed up with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. With $650,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, CB has developed complex software called Mosaic that mines myriad online sources (from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings) to come up with one, algorithmically derived score that measures a private company's health. Forbes married Mosaic's data-crunching with old-fashioned reporting to assemble a list of rising stars with bright growth prospects. To view the complete list, please visit www.forbes.com/ampc.

RGB Networks' Market & Solutions
Consumers' consumption of video entertainment and information services is changing. We are no longer confined to our living rooms, our stationary televisions or to a schedule dictated by the networks. Today's on-the-go consumers, who expect to complete most computing tasks on a mobile phone, iPad or laptop, are also demanding the kind of high-quality video they get on their living room TVs when they're out of the house.

This demand is driven by the rapid proliferation of video-enabled devices -- including tablets, smartphones, PCs and connected TVs -- and video service providers are striving to meet this demand with 'TV Everywhere' services -- live and on-demand video delivered anytime, anywhere to any device. However, delivering TV Everywhere requires a new and extensive IP network infrastructure, which is no easy task. With this in mind, RGB has developed its Enhanced Video Intelligence Architecture (eVIA), a highly flexible multiscreen IP video delivery and ad insertion ecosystem for delivering and monetizing TV Everywhere services.

RGB's award-winning eVIA suite provides integrated, standards-based products that deliver best-in-class technology solutions to meet the demands of today's video-hungry consumers with industry-leading flexibility, scalability and price/performance to help video service providers meet the accelerating demand for TV Everywhere services.
