Voyant Applauds Recent FCC Decisions to Release New Wireless Spectrum for Open Access

Rulings Expected to Aid Current Technology Initiatives and Provide New Opportunities

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 29, 2007) - Voyant International Corporation (OTCBB: VOYT), a diversified media and technology holding company dedicated to improving the quality of the digital world for both businesses and consumers, commented today on recent rulings made by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

On August 10, 2007, the FCC released the final rules for the 700 MHz auctions, including making the 22-MHz-wide spectrum in the upper 700 MHz band available for so-called "Open Access" use. This means that owners of this spectrum may not restrict the types of devices or services that can use it. Previously, in late 2006, the FCC had announced rules that will allow the spectrum containing UHF television channels 14 through 51 to be used by "smart," or cognitive, radios in areas where no television broadcast is using those frequencies.

"Voyant applauds the FCC's decisions to open these frequencies to innovative users of underutilized spectrum," said Herschel Stiles, Voyant's chief development officer. "We and our partners are working with a new generation of frequency-agile smart devices that are driven by sophisticated bandwidth-harvesting software algorithms. We expect these devices to provide an efficient, cost-effective way to maximize scarce bandwidth resources that would otherwise remain under-exploited."

Voyant believes that certain system-level solutions it is pursuing will benefit from these rulings by employing cognitive radios and bandwidth-efficient wireless modem technology. These solutions are being designed to detect and access unused spectrum while nimbly avoiding interference with other users such as television broadcasts. In particular, Voyant has previously announced its intention to enter into the aviation broadband market by using these technologies.

Voyant has posted a more complete commentary on the FCC rulings and their relevance to Voyant's technology initiatives on the Company's website at
