With the use of tablet devices on the continual rise, the mobile The Voice of
Color®  Paint Your Own Room Visualizer allows homeowners to envision any color
in the PPG Pittsburgh Paints line on their walls. With just a few clicks,
users can try out the color on the wall and see all the coordinating colors
that could go with their choices – to match ceilings, trim and more to find
the perfect colors for their next project. Moving the project from
conceptualization to reality, the Paint Your Own Room Visualizer also allows
homeowners to find their nearest PPG Pittsburgh Paints store, where they can
bring their project on their mobile device while purchasing their desired
paint colors.

"Over the past three years, we have seen a significant rise in traffic to The
Voice of Color website coming from mobile devices, which coupled with the
increased reliance on tablets and smartphones helped spur the development of
the patent pending mobile version of the Paint Your Own Room Visualizer," said
Dee Schlotter, brand manager, The Voice of Color program of the PPG Pittsburgh
Paints brand. "Homeowners who had previously not been able to use the
Visualizer can now have access anywhere they go."

The Paint Your Own Room Visualizer utilizes the revolutionary PPG EasyEdge
Technology, offering industry-exclusive functionality to provide virtual
painters with unprecedented control and detail for realistic quality. It
considers elements in a room photo such as lighting, angles, furniture and
trim to provide virtual painters with the simulated precision of painting a
real room. By electronically mapping and outlining a room, PPG's EasyEdge
Technology removes the time consuming elements for homeowners, allowing them
to simply touch the desired color and drag it to the wall they want to paint.

Data and painted room images are now saved on the Cloud, giving homeowners
access to all of their stored information from any point of contact – their
desktop, mobile visualizer and PPG mobile app. Painted rooms can also be
shared to homeowners' social media pages directly from the visualizer.

"Today's homeowner relies on their social media circle of friends more and
more for opinions on fashion, travel and home decor, so the sharing
functionality helps generate feedback on a room before the actual work on a
room project begins," added Schlotter. "In one easy process, homeowners can
now take a photo of their room with their tablet, go to the visualizer on
voiceofcolor.com and test out that striking black or bold blue to see what it
will look on their actual ceiling or accent wall."

additional mobile color tools, homeowners can also download the complete Voice
of Color mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
