Paper Describes Adoption Rates and Growth Potential in the Mobile Video and Video Ringtone Industry

NEW YORK, May 19, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Vringo, Inc. (NYSE Amex:VRNG), a provider of software platforms for mobile video applications and video ringtones, today announces the release of a white paper on the fast growing mobile video and video ringtone industry, by market analyst Arthur Goldgaber of SmallcapInsights.com.

Entitled "The Mobile Video and Video Ringtone Market: A Global Growth Market is Calling," the white paper describes the rapid adoption of mobile devices and smartphones around the globe and the resulting increase in demand for mobile entertainment, including video ringtones, full-track music downloads, as well as streaming video and television. The paper also describes how the increasing popularity of mobile video is becoming a strong revenue driver for mobile carriers and video service providers.

According to the report, "Improved handset technology and the availability of high speed data networks have spurred tremendous growth in mobile video consumption and revenues. The mobile video market will grow to 534.0 million global subscribers in 2014, representing $16 billion in revenues in the United States alone, according to Pyramid Research. Mobile data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 92% from 2010 to 2015, reaching 6.3 exabytes per month by 2015, according to Cisco's projections."

The report further states that "Mobile phone technology and the increasing popularity of smartphones are providing a new and potentially lucrative revenue opportunity for the music industry, according to Nielsen. Especially among digital music's early adopter 20 to 24 year-old segment, the mobile phone is quickly becoming their main method of staying connected to the world (via Internet) and how they listen to and increasingly buy music. More promisingly, nearly one in four of those in their early 20s globally indicated they would be prepared to pay to download music videos on their mobile phone."

The publication of the white paper is a part of Vringo's continuing investor outreach and education program. To view the full white paper (free of charge, in PDF format), please visit: www.smallcapinsights.com.
