PVConnect(TM) Media Server Software Included in Select New HP Storage and Home Server Devices

   PacketVideo's PVConnect Software Enables Devices to Share Content
                  with Other Home and Mobile Devices
SAN DIEGO--(Business Wire)--PacketVideo's (PV) PVConnect media server software will be
included in new products launching this year to allow for media
content to be shared among a variety of compatible home consumer
electronic and mobile devices. In particular, PVConnect will be the
media server software for the HP Media Vault 2100 and 5100
network-attached storage devices, both expected to ship in the spring.

   PVConnect media server software can manage literally tens of
thousands of individual media files without negatively influencing CPU
performance. This capability makes it the perfect choice for
high-capacity storage units such as the HP Media Vault devices, which
can hold up to 1.5 terabyte of capacity and have multiple bays and USB
ports for adding even more capacity.

   "As the world continues its transformation to digital media,
consumers are amassing mammoth amounts of video, music and photo files
-- files that add up quickly and can become a nightmare to manage and
share," said PV CEO James C. Brailean, Ph.D. "PVConnect is a powerful
tool to create order out of media files, and to extend their reach to
other home network devices."

   PVConnect server software will also be part of an early spring
software update for the newly released HP MediaSmart Server, which is
based on the Windows(TM) Home Server platform.

   "Our MediaSmart Server and Media Vault products have created
exciting new ways for people to connect to their digital content and
share experiences with friends and family no matter where they are,"
said Carlos Montalvo, vice president of marketing, Managed Home
Business Unit, HP. "The integration of PacketVideo's PVConnect
software into our server product suite makes it easier than ever to
share and enjoy high definition media files through out the home and
on the go."

   PVConnect is developed by PV, a subsidiary of NextWave Wireless
Inc. (NASDAQ: WAVE). PV also supplies the multimedia software that
enables such services as Verizon Wireless' VCAST music and video
services, NTT DoCoMo's 3G FOMA service and Orange's Orange World
services.

   PVConnect is certified by the Digital Living Network Alliance
(DLNA), meaning it can enable a device to talk to hundreds of other
DLNA-compatible devices as well as those that follow the standard
Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) protocol. PVConnect also has a flexible
adaptation layer that makes popular gaming consoles such as the
Microsoft(TM) Xbox 360(TM) and Sony(TM) PS3(TM) devices able to access
and control media from storage devices like the HP Media Vault and HP
MediaSmart Server.
