GC-100 Network Adapter to be sold through Westworld Distribution

San Jose, CA - May 4, 2004 - Global Caché, a provider of products that enable technology in homes and businesses, announced today it will begin selling products through Westworld Distribution, a premier home theater distributing company. Global Caché's hardware addresses the growing number of homes with high -bandwidth Internet and networking capability and enables the use of network -based software to control and automate diverse devices throughout the home, eliminating the need for costly and complex proprietary systems. Westworld has recently been chosen to sell the newly announced MPlus Home Entertainment Center, a ViewSonic airpanel Smart Display MPlus Software partnership. The ViewSonic MPlus Software combination allows control of all the entertainment devices in a home theater and throughout a home. Global Caché's GC -100 has been optimized and tested to ensure compatibility with the ViewSonic and MPlus solution.

"We're excited about adding Global Caché's products to our line," said Matthew Small, Westworld President. "The combination of the ViewSonic airpanel preloaded with MPlus software, and the Global Caché GC -100 Network Adapter is a killer solution for our dealers and installers. The product bundle is easy to install and use, great looking and very cost effective. The market has been begging for a solution like this for many years and now we've got it."

"We're pleased to have signed up a world class distributor like Westworld that focuses squarely on serving and supporting the home audio/video and home theater market, delivering products that are compatible to ours," said Walt Keller, Global Cache's President. "It's clear the people at Westworld are experts in providing home entertainment solutions, have extensive experience with the dealers and installers our products serve, and will be an excellent distributor for our products."
