RocketStream™ Sprints Into the Beijing Olympics; Enables Taiwanese Television Stations to Quickly and Reliably Transmit Footage for Broadcast

Lambert Newmedia Becomes Master Distributor for RocketStream in Taiwan

TAIPEI, TAIWAN and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and BEIJING--(Marketwire - August 19, 2008) - RocketStream, Inc., a subsidiary of Voyant International Corporation (OTCBB: VOYT) and a developer of technologies and solutions to accelerate digital content delivery over high-bandwidth IP networks, reaches rocket speed with its revolutionary high-speed data acceleration technology at this year's Beijing Olympic Games. Several leading Taiwanese television stations are currently using the RocketStream™ data transfer acceleration suite to transmit time-sensitive television footage of the 2008 Summer Olympics and other global news for broadcast throughout Taiwan. RocketStream is being provided to these television stations through the company's new master distributor for Taiwan, Lambert Newmedia, Inc.

Lambert Newmedia, a member of the FIC Group of companies, is a premier provider of Information Technology (IT) products and services to the Taiwanese marketplace. "We've been impressed with the speed and versatility of the RocketStream suite, as well as the responsiveness of the RocketStream team," said Sam Wu, chief executive officer of Lambert. "Our customers' response to the RocketStream product suite has been excellent, and we are very proud to represent RocketStream in Taiwan."

RocketStream is a data transfer acceleration suite that transmits files at speeds up to 200 times faster than traditional file transfer protocol (FTP). Because RocketStream is a purely software-based solution, it does not require the addition of any new hardware and is therefore an extremely cost-effective way for businesses to maximize the value of their broadband connections.

Journalists from the TVBS Television Network, one of Taiwan's leading television stations, have been using RocketStream to send high-definition footage of the 2008 Summer Olympics from the Olympic Village in Beijing to the station's headquarters in Taiwan. "In this demanding and dynamic journalistic environment, we require a solution that is faster and more reliable than FTP, and it must be very easy to use. RocketStream has been fantastic in all of these regards," said Richard Lu, deputy chief at TVBS. "We have also been using RocketStream to deliver our coverage of Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou's visit to Latin America, and our journalists there are reporting tremendous file transfer speeds back to Taiwan."

"As media files continue to grow larger in size, particularly with the shift to high definition (HD) format, we see RocketStream as an ideal fit for the broadcast industry," said RocketStream president Jay Elliot. RocketStream's automation, reliability and security features are all controlled by an intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, ensuring that almost no user training is necessary.

"Lambert has a well-earned reputation of being a high-quality supplier of IT solutions to the Taiwanese media industry," added William Chen, RocketStream's vice president of enterprise sales. "We are extremely pleased to forge this partnership with Lambert to meet the growing demand of rapid, secure and dependable file transfer acceleration solutions throughout the region."
