Xhibit Interactive Acquires MovieSocial.com Internet Domain

Xhibit management plans to use the domain to launch an exciting movie and entertainment service connected by popular social media platforms

TEMPE, Ariz., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xhibit Interactive, LLC ("Xhibit" or "the Company"), a wholly owned subsidiary of NB Manufacturing, Inc. (OTCQB: NBMF), has acquired the Internet domain MovieSocial.com as part of the Company's Intellectual Property (IP) and social media portfolio.

Xhibit Interactive plans to launch a new social media property at MovieSocial.com that focuses on social interaction and engagement related to motion pictures and the movie going public. Its primary focus is captivating and growing an engaged membership base and supplying content of interest to its audience.

The domain forms the core brand for MovieSocial, which Xhibit plans to make available as a mobile app on leading mobile platforms and devices.

Xhibit Chief Digital Architect, Mirco Pasqualini explains, "MovieSocial, which is currently under development, is an interactive website and mobile app that allows users to explore the latest movie trailers, buy tickets, invite friends or find a movie partner. The public will also be able to discuss, blog, and vote on movies and earn exclusive rewards for their interaction, once the property is fully deployed."

According to management, the MovieSocial platform is also designed to help production companies and studios deliver movie trailer views to interested people throughout the site and mobile app, as well as through email and mobile traffic, across Xhibit Interactive's advertising channels, on a performance basis.

Company President and CEO Chris Richarde states, "We think that the motion picture and movie industry is a prime area for social interaction. It's a perfect spot for us to position Xhibit Interactive with an innovative social property that's designed to monetize advertising through a broad potential audience. Movies are a huge public attractor on a global scale and a great place to engage audiences."

The leading motion picture and movie industry Internet sites include Fandango.com, MovieTickets.com and Moviefone.com. These three industry-leading websites account for approximately 16 million visitors monthly in North America based on current Alexa rankings. According to the movie industry data, there were over 1.1 billion million movie tickets sold in the domestic U.S ticketing market for 2012 to date with a total gross box office of $8.7 billion at an average ticket price of $7.83.(1)

The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments.
