05/16/06

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2006--CalAmp Corp.'s Solutions Division (Nasdaq:CAMP) has reached agreement with ClickStar, Inc., a broadband entertainment company founded by Intel Corporation and Morgan Freeman's Revelations Entertainment, to license the CalAmp Media Manager (CAMM).

"ClickStar is defining the entertainment experience in the emerging digital home market with premium first-run films and artist-created channels featuring some of Hollywood's biggest stars. We believe ClickStar will stand ahead of the pack of the myriad of online entertainment services. CalAmp's unique CAMM technology is a critical enabler of our vision and is indispensable to our goal of delivering a high quality online viewing experience," explained James Ackerman, ClickStar's CEO.

For online content providers like ClickStar, CAMM provides a flexible system architecture for broadband distribution and display of enhanced and interactive media content. It addresses three critical areas of concern: assured delivery, assured security and ease of use. CAMM can dramatically reduce the time to market for a new online service as well as significantly improve the scalability and robustness of established content services. Since CAMM allows for application plug-ins, it can be easily integrated or customized as required by the emerging and dynamic business models associated with online content distribution.

"We are very excited to be a key technology contributor to ClickStar's innovative online business vision. With the varied and ever-changing requirements for broadband content distribution, content delivery technologies have not always provided the flexibility to keep pace. That has now changed with CAMM," stated Steven L'Heureux, president of CalAmp's Solutions Division.
