Default DigiSoft announces General Availability of a Java Platform Micro Edition

NAB, Las Vegas, NV, USA, April 11, 2008 - DigiSoft.tv Inc. announced
today that they have signed a global Binary Value Added Partner
agreement with Sun Microsystems for the distribution of a Java Platform
Micro Edition (Java ME) based software stack for IPTV Set Top Boxes
(STB's).

Sun's Java technology based media client combined with DigiSoft's
advanced middleware solution for IPTV Set Top Boxes enables service
providers to rapidly launch feature-rich, revenue generating high
definition (HD) services such as Video and Music on Demand, karaoke,
home shopping, network-based recording (NPVR) / time-shifted TV, games
and more on a wide range of IPTV STB's with H.264 HD and SD video. Also
supported is the latest encryption and watermarking technologies from
selected partners. The combined DigiSoft / Sun software stack offers
IPTV service providers the most open, cost effective, flexible IPTV
middleware solution available in the market today.

DigiSoft further announced that it has already sold in excess of 1.5
million middleware licenses worldwide. Java technology-based STBs
running DigiSoft's middleware solution will be rolled out across 30,000
retail outlets throughout 2008.

"Service Providers are now seeking more open and scalable middleware
platforms that enable them to launch high quality HD applications and
services to meet customer demand across large client bases. This will
become a bigger issue as the mass adoption of HDTV sets worldwide means
that operators and customers alike will demand services that make
maximum use of this new format" stated John Allen, Chief Executive
Officer, DigiSoft.tv.

"The combination of Sun's Java client technology and DigiSoft's
middleware means that they can now scale their TV service rollout and
achieve a much faster return on investment while having more control of
their middleware and applications than ever before."

The use of Java technology for the software stack enables the creation
of multi-platform (converged) Java applications for support on a range
of Java-based devices, including Blu-ray Disc players, OCAP and other
GEM-based set-top boxes, mobile handsets, and personal computers while
requiring minimal re-authoring, greatly simplifying application and
service deployment.

"For over 10 years, Sun has been working with standards bodies,
operators, and vendors to define a family of specifications for digital
television applications and services such as OCAP/tru2way(tm) and BD-J,
and we are now seeing great momentum in the deployment of products based
on these open standards," stated Jeet Kaul, vice president, Client
Software Group at Sun. "We are very pleased to be working with a
company with DigiSoft's global experience and track record in delivering
IPTV technology, and look forward to extending the presence of Java
technology in the DTV marketplace with DigiSoft's middleware solution."
