Date:9/15/2008

Rivulet's flawless video transmission will enable advances in telemedicine

and the digital marketplace, board members say

HERNDON, Va., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Rivulet Communications, whose technology enables medical, government and media customers to flawlessly transport high-bandwidth, mission-critical and real-time applications over existing IP networks, today announced the formation of the Rivulet Technical Advisory Board and the first appointments to that Board.

"The main purpose of the Technical Advisory Board," said Ed Kennedy, Rivulet CEO, "is to provide strategic counsel on emerging trends, strategic planning and on the company's product direction for application development."

"The members of our newly formed advisory board have impeccable credentials and are experts in their fields," Kennedy said. "We're all incredibly excited about this board, as this panel of distinguished experts are drawn from key medical, telemedicine, government and media markets which play a key role in our strategic direction."

The Rivulet Technical Advisory Board members include:

-- Jay H. Sanders, MD, president and CEO, The Global Telemedicine Group, is a professor of medicine (Adjunct) at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and a founding board member of the American Telemedicine Association, where he serves as president emeritus. Dr. Sanders has served on the NASA Biological and Physical Research Advisory Committee, as a consultant to the NASA Space Communication Center and the Scientific Director for the NASA Medical Informatics and Technology Applications Commercial Space Center. He was also a consultant to the Army's Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) at Ft. Detrick, as well as to the CIO of the Military Health System, and previously to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He also has served as a consultant to the Air Force Center for Telehealth and Theater Informatics, and was a member of the Department of Defense Telemedicine Board of Directors with the Surgeon Generals of the Army, Navy, and Air Force.

"Medical technology and the Internet are shrinking the globe and have changed the way we live, interact, learn, diagnose and heal thereby playing a huge role in furthering the field of telemedicine," said Sanders. "I look forward to this advisory role as I believe that Rivulet's technologies will play an important part in advancing telemedicine by providing flawless video transmission over high speed IP networks and the ability to ultimately share it over the global internet."

-- Mark Devins, Business Development Director, Ascent Media Systems & Technology Services, has more than 15 years of experience in the digital media, data storage and communications industries. As global director of digital media broadcast for Quantum Corp's Advanced Solutions software group, he developed strategic initiatives for deploying software solutions and has extensive experience in the establishment and fostering of OEM and reseller relationships with companies including Apple, SONY, and EMC.

"I look forward to the challenge of introducing and adapting Rivulet's technology to the digital media world," Devins said. "The rapidly growing digital marketplace gives content owners, movie studios, TV networks, cable companies, and distributors ways to sell and send new and existing digital assets. There is, therefore, an increasing demand for delivering HD content via IP networks to the broadband portals and mobile providers. Rivulet has developed some core technology that will enable these markets to send and receive digital files over IP networks with guaranteed lossless service at far lower costs -- their innovative approach will prove to be disruptive and greatly beneficial to the content owners as well as the consumers."

-- Carl J. Westcott, MD, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, is Associate Professor of Surgery at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and director of Minimally Invasive Surgery Services. He also is the director of the Center for applied learning at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. The Center for Applied Learning is involved with health care simulation and modern educational techniques in adult learning. At Baptist Medical Center he is chair of the Operating Room renovations and technical improvements committee. His clinical interests are in minimally invasive and foregut surgery. His academic interests are in patient safety and medical communication.

"Rivulet technology is exciting because it adds flexibility to our video communications that does not exist with hard cable," said Westcott. "With this new technology we feel our video image is not only superb but available where and when we need it."
