December 8, 2008

Alliance of Leading-Edge Virtual Environment Company and Powerful 3-D Real-Time Engine Ushers in New Era of Collaboration and Interoperability

MIAMI, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — VZillion, Inc. (Pink Sheets: VZIL), innovator of the virtual internet, today announced its highly-anticipated virtual environment, VZillion.com, will be powered by a versatile, real-time 3-D engine designed by Unigine Corp., pioneers of photorealistic 3-D for interactive virtual worlds. Under the licensing agreement, VZillion will increase its footprint in the rapidly expanding market of virtual entertainment and social immersive environments.

“An alliance with Unigine is the next step towards fulfilling our vision to create dynamic environments that can be used on any platform with a screen and a power source,” said Antonio Collier, CEO and founder of VZillion.

Named “Best New Technology” at the 2008 3-D Film & Interactive Festival earlier this month, VZillion smashes through traditional, flat, 2-D web pages to create an interactive, fully navigable 3-D stereoscopic Internet experience, merging the Internet, entertainment, social and business portals across one architecture. The 3-D stereoscopic capabilities and cross-platform design of Unigine’s engine will allow VZillion to seamlessly move beyond the desktop to mobile devices and 3-D televisions.

“VZillion has the potential to fundamentally change how people communicate,” said Denis Shergin, CEO of Unigine Corp. “Bringing our engine technology to innovative projects like VZillion is important to us because this partnership will demonstrate the potential of modern real-time 3-D middleware.”

“Unigine was an obvious choice for us,” said James Piper, CTO of VZillion. “It allows our team to experiment with different forms or genres of game styles with ease; which is very important for the various features we are implementing as well as scalability. Unigine also provides regular engine and documentation updates, enabling us to leverage their API effectively. Unigine not only gives us the power to create a cross platform architecture, but a powerful 3-D internet management application.”

“With milestones such as a Virtual OS and dynamic virtual Internet on the horizon,” said Collier. “VZillion is not simply a virtual world, but a tool for change. The strategic fusion of VZillion and Unigine will allow us to open our unique concept to members propelling an explosion of new innovations and technologies.”
