For the last several years, TV Worldwide has worked with Operation Interdependence on numerous high profile webcasts throughout the country, highlighting OI's renowned Civilian-to-Military Distribution System® including last year's NAB 2006 show where NAB President David Rehr assisted with the Operation Interdependence effort during the webcast.

The webcast to be simulcast on TV Worldwide's Internet TV channels for the new media industry, TV MainStream (www.TVMainStream.com) and for the veterans' community, USVets.TV (www.USVets.TV) will also feature reports on webcast industry activities at the show from the perspective of IWA members interacting with webcast participants worldwide via e-mail.

"We're pleased to have been selected to deploy our TV Worldwide Internet TV network again to support Operation Interdependence and U.S. troops globally on our TV MainStream and USVets.TV channels with help from sponsors and our IWA volunteers," stated Dave Gardy, chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. "This will be our 6th consecutive year webcasting live from NAB, and our goal this year is to use that experience to offer the streaming media professional a front-seat, interactive on-line perspective highlighting issues and demonstrating the key technologies that are driving our webcasting industry while actually using the technology to again support the troops in the process."

"We are pleased to again work with the TV Worldwide team and the IWA for our webcast at NAB 2007 to help us get the OI message out and to support our troops worldwide," stated OI President and CEO, Jane Schwartz. "With NAB 2007 show attendee participation, we plan to ship 100 boxes of c-rats® (C-rations) to 100 different deployed units from all branches of services to reach 5,000 troops with 5,000 c-rats®, plus two giant chess sets all signed by NAB attendees. Just as we did during NAB 2006, we're calling the webcast video greetings 'v-rats.'"

About Operation Interdependence®

Operation Interdependence® (OI®) is a national non-profit organization that provides a means for the public to serve and support military personnel, their families and our veterans without impacting valuable resources. OI provides a secure and streamlined process for civilians to serve and support our deployed forces with Civilian Rations® from home, without overloading the military delivery system. It is the premiere delivery system that is logistically sound. Most people are not aware that sending packages and messages to the troops can cause a burden for the military, detract from the mission, and possibly bog down in the system and never reach the troops. Operation Interdependence works in concert with the military supply system to expedite packages to deployed men and women. With OI nothing is wasted, and items that do not meet OI shipping standards are given to military families and our veterans. Such donations represent 40% of OI's total distribution. Working interdependently with organizations, public bodies, corporations and the media, OI volunteers of all ages are aiming to reach all 250,000 deployed troops, every month. Since launching in December 2001, OI has delivered over 1 million c-rats® WITHOUT impacting military resources. For more information please visit the OI website at www.oidelivers.org.
