CENTENNIAL, Colo. & ORLANDO, Fla. -- April 24, 2013

Moviegoers in the top 10 markets will soon be able to interact with
cutting-edge Monster Wall video displays in select theater lobbies, thanks to
a new deal between NCM Media Networks and Monster Media.

NCM Media Networks, a leading integrated media company reaching U.S. consumers
in movie theaters, online and through mobile technology, and Monster Media, an
interactive technology pioneer and producer of award-winning digital
out-of-home (DOOH) advertising solutions, have signed a multi-year exclusive
agreement to bring interactive Monster Wall video displays to the lobbies of
select movie theaters nationwide. The new Monster Walls will launch in 10
movie theaters in the top 10 markets.

These fully integrated, free-standing interactive video units enhance the
movie-going experience and bring the excitement of cinema to life in a whole
new way. Made up of a 10’ x 8’ display unit of nine 46” LCD screens, the movie
theater Monster Walls are equipped with advanced DOOH interactive technologies
that allow multi-touch, motion activated, kinect-style interaction, photo
capturing functionality and augmented reality. In addition, the units are
enabled with NFC that allows the gathering of analytics to deliver a tangible
ROI. With all of these capabilities, the Monster Walls will offer limitless
opportunities for advertisers to run truly outstanding on-site cinema
campaigns.

NCM Media Networks is the top national cinema network reaching over 700
million moviegoers a year on-screen, on-site, online and on the go. In an
increasingly fragmented media environment, the Monster Walls are just one more
part of NCM’s integrated marketing tool belt for brands.

“We like to think big at NCM, and Monster Walls are a perfect way to add huge
impact to an integrated cinema program,” said Cliff Marks, president of sales
and marketing with NCM Media Networks. “Our research has shown that NCM
moviegoers spend at least 10 minutes in our theater lobbies, so when our
audiences see a brand on the big screen and can also interact with that brand
in the lobby environment, it creates a unique level of engagement throughout
their movie-going experience that can’t be found in any other video marketing
platform.”

“This interactive DOOH network will break the mold of traditional in-theater
advertising,” said Chris Beauchamp, CEO of Monster Media. “Advertisers are
looking for a new way to set themselves apart, and this network represents a
new and compelling way of reaching their audiences.”
