XMPie Declared Best of Show at ON DEMAND 2006

XMPie's uImage Captures Award for Best Print Production Workflow System

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, May 30, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- XMPie(r), www.xmpie.com, the award-winning provider of dynamic publishing software, was named the 'Best of Show' award winner by the ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition last week in Philadelphia. XMPie's variable imaging software, uImage(tm), was recognized above all other candidates in the print production workflow systems category for its ability to generate and seamlessly integrate visually rich, personalized images and graphics into print and online VDP campaigns.

First introduced at Print '05, uImage incorporates the familiarity and flexibility of Adobe(r) Photoshop(r) and Illustrator(r) CS2 with the advanced personalization capabilities of XMPie's VDP software solutions. Variable image, graphics and text data are merged with Photoshop and/or Illustrator templates to generate personalized images that are then automatically integrated back into XMPie VDP production. XMPie's customers such as graphic designers, programmers and publishing professionals are able to use highly personalized graphics and text to create direct mail campaigns customized to a specific recipient without sacrificing a smooth workflow.

XMPie's uImage was one of only six products acknowledged by the awards program co-sponsors, ON DEMAND producers Questex Media Group, and BERTL, the well-known independent research firm focused on digital imaging. Award judges from BERTL Dave Sweetnam, Karl Rudisill, and Rich McAllister accredited XMPie as a leader in print production workflow and a verified authority in VDP software and technology.

"Being named 'Best of Show' is a recognition of our work in consistently bringing new VDP tools that help design, database and printing professionals perform to their fullest potential," said Jacob Aizikowitz, CTO of XMPie, Inc. "We will continue to deliver solutions that allow marketers and printers to develop truly effective 1 to 1 campaigns."

The ON DEMAND Conference & Expo is the world's leading digital printing conference and exposition, which encompasses all the technologies that are used to create, manage, personalize, print and deliver content.
