eJamming Demonstrates Tech Breakthrough: Real-Time Synchronized Audio for Musicians Collaborating Online.

Company to show prototype eJamming AUDIO+MIDI at Dow Jones Consumer Technology Conference November 7 and 8

LOS ANGELES -- eJamming today announced it will demonstrate a breakthrough Internet technologyCoeJamming AUDIO+MIDICoat this week's Dow Jones Consumer Technology Conference in San Jose. The new eJamming technology is the first to make it possible for any musician - acoustic or electronic - to make music and collaborate with others in real-time over the Internet.

With eJamming AUDIO+MIDI any musician with access to a personal computer and microphone will be able to make music online with two to four musicians in different geographic locationsCoeven cross-countryCoover a basic broadband connection such as DSL or cable. Until now, such real-time collaboration was limited to digital musicians using MIDI-enabled instruments.

The International Music Products Association (NAMM) estimates there are over 200 million musicians worldwide, excluding the millions of vocalists and the 1.8 million turntablists who bought DJ mixers the past eight years, making eJamming technology's potential market opportunity significant.

"eJamming AUDIO+MIDI is the most revolutionary new way for musicians to interact," said Aaron Kaplan, guitarist for hit TV shows "The Closer" and "Nip/Tuck." "Consistent time is critical to musical conversation, which is why it's been so hard to get synchronized audio online. eJamming opens the door for people who would never meet or play together to bridge that gap."

The eJamming technology incorporates sophisticated, patent-pending algorithms that address latency issues. It effectively resolves the delays associated with transmitting data over the Internet that have prevented real-time online music collaboration in the past. Using proprietary codecs and data-thinning schemes in tandem with eJamming's previously-patented Internet delay management algorithms, eJamming AUDIO+MIDI achieves real-time synchrony among musicians in different locations, allowing musicians to keep solid time, which is imperative for musical performance.

eJamming plans to incorporate the patent-pending AUDIO+MIDI technology into easy-to-use, downloadable software and an online service with a scheduled release date of early 2007. The software and service will complement the company's current offering, eJamming Studio 1.5, which allows digital musicians to collaborate online via MIDI.

"For the first time, any musicianCovocalists, acoustic guitarists, horns, strings, even harmonica players and accordionistsCocan play together with others over the Internet," said eJamming Co-Founder and Chairman/President Alan Jay Glueckman, who led eJamming's international engineering team in developing this breakthrough technology.

"Music is truly a universal language, and we are thrilled to be able to break down what were thought to be impenetrable barriers with eJamming AUDIO+MIDI," added Gail Kantor, co-founder and eJamming's CEO. "Musicians will finally be able to collaborate online."
