TransMedia Introduces Glide Shops: The First Truly Interactive Online Shopping Experience with Drop & Shop(TM) and Share and $ave(TM)

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- TransMedia today unveiled Glide Shops with its patent pending Drop & Shop(TM) the first browser-based drag and drop shopping environment which will be available to consumers on November 15th at www.glidedigital.com.

TransMedia also unveiled its patent pending Share and $ave(TM) shopping which enables consumers to share product information through Glide Shop's integrated and ecommerce enabled email, sharing and video, audio and text conferencing. Consumers sharing product information with friends automatically receive a discount on their next purchase. Consumers receiving shared product information can instantly make a purchase!

"Glide Shops is the first on-line shopping environment to feature integrated communication, product information sharing, contact management and community building tools with drag and drop shopping," said TransMedia Chairman and CEO Donald Leka. "It is truly a win-win for retailers who are looking to promote viral sales and to provide consumers with a totally new, interactive shopping experience."

TransMedia is announcing four initial Glide Shops with plans to open more in the coming weeks.

1) Glide Music Shop: The music industry's first interactive music store
with integrated and ecommerce enabled video, audio and text
conferencing, streaming preview sharing, contact management, community
building tools and a new solution to protect digital media content.
The Glide Music Shop will initially make music tracks available for
download at .99 cents a song. In addition, users can share non-
downloadable streaming previews with friends and receive a discount on
their next purchase!

TransMedia and Mediaguide are also announcing their joint intentions to
work together in a content and technology relationship. Mediaguide is
the first and only company to electronically monitor college, non-
commercial and commercial radio stations. TransMedia and Mediaguide
will work together to provide consumers with premier independent music
and videos through the Glide Music Store. The featured music and
videos will be based on the Mediaguide airplay charts that are compiled
by electronic monitoring of radio stations across the U.S. Record
labels, distributors and artists receiving airplay and working with
Mediaguide can reach Glide Music Store visitors, who can access
interactive Mediaguide charts, preview and purchase both music and
videos.

TransMedia also plans to integrate Mediaguide's digital fingerprinting
technology to work with its digital asset management, communication,
secure sharing and distribution platform. Any music that is uploaded
to Glide will automatically be identified, fingerprinted and matched
against the database of millions of songs that Mediaguide has built and
continues to grow around its music monitoring business.
