Aug 01, 2006, 01:00 ET from TVersity Inc.

    NEW YORK, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- TVersity Inc., the pioneer in
 delivering Internet and home media to televisions and mobile devices, today
 announced support for the Xbox 360.
     "We are very excited to allow owners of the Xbox 360 to overcome some
 of the inherent limitations of this device", said Ronen Mizrahi, President
 of TVersity Inc., "With TVersity they can, for the first time, access audio
 files in formats not natively supported by the Xbox 360 (like Vorbis and
 FLAC), play Internet radio stations of their choice, and access podcasts
 and photo feeds (from photo sharing sites like Flickr) -- All this without
 requiring a Media Center PC!"
     TVersity's media server is universal in the range of devices it can
 serve and in the types of media it can handle. By doing all the necessary
 conversions of media formats and streaming protocols on the fly, TVersity
 overcomes the inherent limitations of target devices thus allowing playback
 of any media on any device.
     The Xbox 360 is the most recent addition to the long list of connected
 devices already supported by TVersity, which includes networked TVs, DVDs,
 STBs, media receivers, PDAs, mobiles phones, and other mobile devices (like
 the Nokia 770 Internet tablet and the Sony PSP). With TVersity the menus on
 the Xbox 360 are extended to include Internet content, making it possible
 to access radio stations, Podcasts and Photo feeds.
     "Our goal is to empower users to personalize their entertainment
 experience and to extend this experience beyond the PC to TVs and to a wide
 range of connected devices and applications", said Mr. Mizrahi, "As users
 invest more time in organizing and personalizing their favorite content,
 they essentially become the new programmers and they expect to have access
 to their programming from any multimedia capable device -- This is what
 TVersity is all about, personalization of multimedia content and ubiquitous
 access."
