NIANTIC, CT--(Marketwire - February 22, 2008) - USA Video Interactive Corp. (OTCBB: USVO) (TSX-V: US) (BERLIN: USF) (FRANKFURT: USF) reports USVO's delivery of the MediaEscort™ digital watermarking technology product to a major Hollywood customer has been completed. MediaEscort™ has been successfully installed in the customer's video server facility.

"USVO has executed the implementation of MediaEscort; a server-based, on-demand watermarking product for a specific enterprise within that business. It replaces what had previously been an analog media delivery of content for that particular business unit," stated Patrick Gregston, Business Development for USVO.

He went on to say, "This deployment is on a non-exclusive basis and we are confident once our watermarking technology has been proven effective with a major studio, it will open up global opportunities for our technology."

MediaEscort is a software application that resides on customers' video servers. It automatically and seamlessly embeds SmartMarks -- invisible forensic information in every frame of video content -- during Internet delivery, providing the proof courts need to protect intellectual property rights, indicting and convicting the individuals who steal the original material.
