LAS VEGAS (Jan. 8, 2011) – RealNetworks®, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK), the digital entertainment services company, today announced that the company's new Unifi™ cloud service has won a CNET "Best of CES" award. Unifi, a new personal media cloud service previewed at CES, was judged by the editors at CNET as the best Software, Services and Applications product at the show.

See CNET's video of Unifi here and coverage here.

Unifi solves one of the escalating problems of the digital age: how to keep track of the thousands of photos, music tracks and videos stored on multiple devices and online services so users can easily find and enjoy them. Unifi catalogues and organizes this content into a single digital library accessible from any Internet-connected device. The library allows users to easily find, access and enjoy what they want – by media type, by device or through tags.

Selected by CNET's expert editors, Best of CES winners are recognized as having the hottest products in their respective technology categories for their unmatched innovation and creativity, and their ability to excite consumers and help them explore a world gone digital. CNET editors review hundreds of entries and scour the CES show floor for products to consider for the prestigious awards.

"It's an honor to be chosen by CNET editors for a Best of CES award," said Hank Skorny, RealNetworks' senior vice president of media cloud computing and services and architect of Unifi. "We know that Unifi will help people find and enjoy their photos, music and videos that are scattered across their many Internet-connected devices, and we're pleased that CNET has recognized its value as well."
