MILAN, January 8 - Mirial announces that Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is certified to be
interoperable with Mirial Softphone desktop video conferencing solution.

Mirial Softphone is the software-only client for professional quality
videoconferencing offered by the Italian provider of products and solution
for visual communication. Featuring Full-HD resolution (1080p) for both
decoding and encoding, embedded MCU functionality, and advanced media
encryption, Mirial Softphone is fully compliant with all major visual
communications standards and can be seamlessly integrated into every visual
communications network.

Mirial's Certified Interoperability Testing Program provided rigorous
testing aimed at verifying the full compatibility of the LifeCam Cinema with
the Mirial Softphone. Technical teams at both Mirial and Microsoft worked
together to certify that the products interoperated successfully.

"Even if Mirial Softphone works with any device compatible with the
operating system, with both SD and HD resolution, we developed a
certification program to identify and advise those devices that enable the
best performance," said Cristoforo Mione, VP Business Development at Mirial.
"With its 16:9 widescreen video capture LifeCam Cinema is a great option to
take advantage of the Full HD resolution of Mirial Softphone."

"When we started working on LifeCam Cinema almost a year ago, we were
motivated by the fact that new computer displays were predominantly
widescreen and top social networking sites were allowing widescreen video,"
said Stuart Milton, systems engineer for Microsoft Hardware. "LifeCam Cinema
sets the stage for the next generation of webcam use: uploading widescreen
videos with amazing quality to social networking sites and soon chatting live
with friends and family in widescreen format."

A 30-day try&buy version of Mirial Softphone can be downloaded from the
Mirial website.
