Aricent’s Media EXP Ranks High on Exclusive 100 Million Club, Powering More Than 500 Million Smart Connected Devices

East Brunswick, NJ, November 11, 2010 — Aricent® a global innovation, technology, and services company focused exclusively on communications has been recognized among a select group of successful mobile software companies in VisionMobile's 100 Million Club watch list for its Media EXP suite.

Aricent’s Media EXP™ is a pre-integrated and pre-optimized multimedia software suite for next generation consumer electronics and mobile devices. The pre-packaged software framework reduces the development cost and complexity for vendors manufacturing a variety of consumer electronic devices such as mobile internet devices (MIDs), smart phones, digital photo frames, portable media players, netbooks and more.

“Aricent is honored to be included among the industry leading companies enabling compelling user experiences on today’s advanced smart phones,” said Tim Leberecht, Chief Marketing Officer at Aricent. “Our Media EXP Suite is enabling the most advanced multimedia capabilities for a huge number of handsets from many of the world’s leading device vendors. We are very delighted to offer our enabling software and integration expertise to assist our customers in delivering the best possible customer experience.”

The 100 Million Club watch list is published semi-annually by VisionMobile, a leading market analysis and strategy firm in mobile software. The watch list features software companies whose products have been embedded on more than 100 million mobile handsets. The current edition features cumulative shipments up to the first half of 2010. Despite the apparent opportunity in the one-billion-a-year handset market, very few software companies have managed to overcome the commercial and technical challenges inherent in the mobile industry.

”We are pleased to welcome Aricent into the 100 Million Club,” stated Andreas Constantinou, Research Director at VisionMobile. “Aricent’s Media EXP joins an elite club of ubiquitous mobile software products that have managed to establish a strong position in the industry through their pervasiveness.”
