Gracenote - 02/15/2010

Mobile World Congress 2010 -- In conjunction with its parent company, Gracenote®, Gravity Mobile will illustrate true personal media convergence by demonstrating MediaLink, a sophisticated capability built upon Gracenote's powerful platform of digital media management, at Mobile World Congress 2010. MediaLink showcases how Gravity Mobile enables enhanced and connected content on phones, PCs, set-top boxes, in-car entertainment systems and other platforms, allowing consumers to have a simple, seamless and unified media experience across multiple devices.

Leveraging the mobile platform as the hub for the multi-screen experience, MediaLink allows for richer media interaction, including "follow me" functionality that allows consumers to go from home, to car to mobile with access and control of their media in perfect sync. The application makes the entertainment experience better by providing search and discovery capabilities as well as lyrics, album art, artist bios, and actor, director and scene information.

"As mobile and other devices continue to become primary sources of information and entertainment around the world, we are committed to designing and developing solutions that not only provide an enhanced mobile experience, but also enable it across all media platforms," said Noah Hurwitz, GM of Gravity Mobile. "This is where mobile technology is headed, and we are in a unique position to lead the way."

Gravity Mobile continues its rapid growth in the world market, bringing the cross platform MusicID solution to Japan and Europe with regional language support and access to Gracenote's Global Media Database, the largest and most comprehensive in the world. Over the past several years, Gravity Mobile has been responsible for many award winning innovations made possible through a combination of its market-leading mobile technology, cutting edge applications and UI design capabilities and a proven track record of delivering best-in-class mobile solutions.
