Strategic Partnership

Embargoed Release: 07:00 hrs Thursday 29th September 2005

                                   Vimio plc                                   

                           ('Vimio' or 'the Group')                            

                             Strategic Partnership                             

Vimio plc is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic
partnership with Mobile Telecom Group (`MTG'), based in the United Arab
Emirates. As a result MTG will provide the Group's turnkey media distribution
solutions to up to 3.75 million mobile phone subscribers across five
international territories in the region.

Utilising Vimio's proprietary wireless media compression technology, MTG will,
for the first time, be offering mobile subscribers the capability to seamlessly
download a variety of media content - including video clips, music files and
live TV broadcasts - directly to their mobile phones.

This strategic partnership is the first of its kind for the Group, following
its flotation on AIM in September of this year, and demonstrates the
management's ability to deliver on its core strategy of penetrating the
estimated US$61billion global mobile data revenue market.

Malachy Harkin, CEO, commented:

'Our strategic alliance with MTG has given us the opportunity to penetrate a
substantial market place that, in the absence of such an alliance, would have
proved to be extremely difficult to enter. It is my belief that it is the
competitiveness of our technology that has given us the opportunity to secure
such a potentially valuable partnership.

We are delighted to be able to demonstrate the potential of the Group and its
products in the global market place to our shareholders. This new strategic
alliance keeps us very much in line with our growth ambitions and I look
forward to reporting on further progress in due course.'
