26 Apr, 2006, 01:00 ET from TVersity Inc.

    TENAFLY, N.J., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- TVersity Inc., the pioneer in
 bridging Internet content with televisions and mobile devices, today
 announced expanded support for audio and video podcasts and for media RSS
 feeds by Flickr, Webjay, Google video, Yahoo! video and others.
     TVersity also announced its plans to further expand its offering and
 allow access to Internet and home media from a wide range of mobile devices
 including PDAs, cellular phones and mobile game consoles.
     "This is a great step forward in bringing together all the media
 consumers care about and making it available for instantaneous playback on
 any device, anywhere, anytime. The ability to easily access from my TV, all
 the Internet media I care about whether it is a live TV channel that
 happens to be available only on the web, an on demand vlog, results of a
 video search query on Google or Yahoo!, or my Flickr photos, and just sit
 back and navigate it all with my remote is truly liberating", said Ronen
 Mizrahi, President of TVersity Inc.
     TVersity's unique media server overcomes the inherent limitations of
 target devices by doing all the necessary conversions of media formats and
 streaming protocols on the fly thus allowing playback of any media on any
 device.
     "New media formats constantly emerge and the wide range of devices we
 are using will always lag behind the PC when it comes to supporting these
 formats. TVersity, thanks to its unique transcoder, eliminates this concern
 by converting those formats on the fly," said Mr. Mizrahi, "this is a key
 building block in empowering viewers to create their own personalized
 programming guide from a multitude of sources, and have it follow them to
 the living room, to the gym or to the line in the bank."
