SunnComm Announces Major Breakthrough in CD Copy Management Technology

SunnComm International, Inc. (OTC: SCMI), the developer of MediaMax?, the most widely used and accepted audio CD copy management and enhancement technology in the United States, announced today that it has achieved a major breakthrough in CD content protection technology.

As part of SunnComm?s ongoing commitment to raise the bar for copy management solutions, it has developed new technology that will significantly enhance the security for MediaMax protected discs while remaining 100% playable in consumer CD/ DVD players. Protection components embedded on the optical medium will now make it impossible for the user to play the disc without installing the MediaMax software.

As with all MediaMax products, once installed the user will not only be able to play the disc but will have access to numerous features and bonus content not found on conventional audio CD?s. The beta release containing the new technology is to be tested by a select group of international record labels by the end of Q3/04.

This leap forward in technology provides a very strong answer to some critics who believed that holding the infamous shift-key offered an acceptable work-around for MediaMax protected discs.

It provides the necessary support to ensure that the CD buyer will be given the option to use the music they have purchased in a legal, responsible way while protecting the artists and content owners? rights. SunnComm?s president, Peter H. Jacobs, stated, ?Everyone at SunnComm believes that the best digital security technology should be ever mindful of the consumer experience. We now have the tools to build on a very effective and well-received CD security platform, making it the most widespread and strongest CD security solution available anywhere.?

Bill Whitmore, QuietTiger?s president, adds, ?SunnComm has had the leading CD copy management solution for a couple of years and this exciting breakthrough brings us to a new level of security.? SunnComm?s Chief Technology Officer, Eric Vandewater, affirmed, ?We designed this new technology to integrate directly and seamlessly into SunnComm?s current suite of MediaMax products and to ensure the copyrighted content is protected as soon as the disc is inserted in the drive of a computer regardless of subsequent user actions.?

SunnComm?s MediaMax suite of products delivers security for digital CD audio along with an enhanced consumer experience that provides additional bonus content and value-added features. MediaMax is wrapped in a user-friendly multi-media session environment, mastered directly on the audio CD, and accessible using a personal computer. Bonus features include artist-related promotions, videos, song lyrics, artist bio page, photo gallery, web links, on-board press kits, and tune-sharing capability through SunnComm?s MusicMail functionality.
