Solid State Network to Demonstrate First High-Performance, Commercial-Class Content Delivery Solution Based on BitTorrent Protocol

TEMPE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 -- Solid State Networks, a startup company dedicated to developing high-performance distributed content delivery solutions, today announced it will be participating in the Top Innovator Demo program at OnHollywood 2006, the digital media and entertainment market for executives, held May 2 - 4 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, CA.

The two-and-a-half-day industry insider event borrows on the 'film market' tradition by providing a space for pioneering digital media companies to present a six-minute Top Innovator Demo of their products and services. Solid State Networks will have the opportunity to demo its product and present its business model at the event, in front of an expert panel and a live and global webcast audience of industry influencers.

Solid State Networks will be presenting its demo at 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 3.

"With the recent explosion in digital content being accessed over the Internet, it is clear that conventional client-server based delivery architectures are prohibitively expensive and too difficult to scale for Hollywood to effectively reach the mass market of consumers," said Rick Bounincontri, President, CEO and a founder of Solid State Networks. "We are dedicated to radically improving the economics and performance of digital content distribution by providing these leading content providers the first high-performance content delivery solution based on commercially optimized BitTorrent technology."

"The Top Innovator Demo program is a compelling environment for digital media companies to communicate how they plan to exploit the new opportunities in online entertainment and media," said Tony Perkins, organizer of OnHollywood 2006 and founder of AlwaysOn. "Our view is that the consumer is now leading the direction of technology innovation, and that the 'Instant Messaging Generation' is now firmly in charge, having taken the baton from the PC generation. These companies will be showcasing how their firms can contribute to this digital revolution. This is a chance to gain valuable feedback from leading industry insiders and meet peers and partners, as well as to attract the attention of the venture and press communities."

OnHollywood 2006 is where cutting-edge technology CEOs from all over the planet converge on Hollywood and mix it up with the entertainment and media establishment.
