TransGaming Teams With Macrovision to Bring SafeDisc to Mac

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 4, 2007) - TransGaming Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TNG) ("TransGaming"), a leading developer of software portability products for the electronic entertainment industry, announced today an agreement with Macrovision Corporation (NASDAQ:MVSN) that will help protect high profile game titles as they are released on the Intel Mac through Cider™.

TransGaming's Cider engine allows publishers to extend their products to Mac users without having to recode or recompile their windows-based software. With the expected increase in the number of top tier video game titles that are released for the Mac through TransGaming's Cider engine, publishers are looking for copy protection for their content. Through this agreement, TransGaming will be working with Macrovision's SafeDisc technology to make it easier for game publishers to protect their PC games on the Mac.

"More than $3 billion annually are lost worldwide to video game piracy. By bringing Macrovision's SafeDisc to Mac, TransGaming's Cider product can not only deploy top titles on the Mac more quickly and cost-effectively than anyone else but we are also now able to offer protection from piracy of content, providing a strong incentive and confidence for publishers to target the Mac platform," commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming.

"We are pleased to be teaming with TransGaming as they work with our mutual customers to help them deploy their games on the Mac", said Loren Hillberg, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Macrovision's commerce business group. "We are committed to broadening SafeDisc to other platforms and to supporting our customers with their digital distribution needs so their consumers can enjoy their gaming experiences at every turn."
