October 7, 2008

Company’s On-Demand Digital Production and Online Advertising Division Surpasses 100 Projects Totaling over 15,000 Production Hours in First Three Months

CHARLESTON, SC – October 6, 2008 – avVenta Worldwide, a global leader in digital production and interactive services, today announced that its Studio V division has achieved and surpassed its near-term goals in the three short months since its inception, having already successfully completed more than 100 projects totaling over 15,000 production hours. Launched in June, Studio V helps meet the growing demand from advertisers for high-quality rich media digital projects that can be efficiently and cost-effectively completed under tight deadlines. The division draws on the deep talent pools produced by avVenta’s training programs with the Costa Rican government, and with leading technology companies including Microsoft, Adobe and PointRoll.

Since its inception, avVenta’s Studio V unit has worked with some of the world’s leading brands and advertising agencies including eBay, Harrah’s, Hewlett Packard, and Mountain Dew, among others. Studio V draws on avVenta’s deep expertise in digital production, rich media applications, and creative development to provide full service, revolutionary on-demand digital production services. Studio V also serves as a key, additional resource for avVenta’s long term clients who are utilizing Studio V for specialized shorter term projects outside of their day to day needs, especially when emergency digital needs arise.

We launched Studio V in response to growing demand from the online advertising and marketing industry for rapidly scalable, short-term digital production services that can be handled cost-effectively and on deadline, said Jay Noce, Founder, Chairman and CEO of avVenta. Surpassing these project milestones demonstrates our ability to successfully ramp up Studio V and deliver high quality technical and creative services at an attractive price point. The feedback we’ve received from Studio V has been uniformly positive, with clients deeply appreciative of our quick turn around, and ability to handle complex technical projects with minimal lead time.

One of the keys to Studio V’s success is our strong focus on human resources and the training programs we have in place to ensure an ongoing staffing pipeline of digital production talent, added Sam Staley, Director of Studio V. Our avVenta University program and training partnerships with government agencies in Costa Rica, as well as with Microsoft and with Rich Media vendors such as Pointroll are essential elements of our business development as well. These training programs provide a rich, regenerative technical talent pool that understands and excels at the latest technologies such as Microsoft’s Silverlight, Adobe’s Flex, and Rich Media publishing platforms.
