("AccessIT") (AMEX: AIX) today announced the appointment of David Gajda to the newly created post of Senior Vice President - International, and named Jim Miller President and Chief Operating Officer of Hollywood Software, the position vacated by Mr. Gajda.

Hollywood Software, a subsidiary of AccessIT, is the leading developer of proprietary transactional software for movie distributors and exhibitors in North America.

The company's newest product, TDS International, is designed to support global movie releases with a unique application design incorporating worldwide functionality within a singular codebase. In addition to eliminating the high costs of maintaining multiple territory-specific programs, the system seamlessly integrates with AccessIT's digital content delivery services provided through AccessIT's Access Digital Media subsidiary.

David Gajda, co-founder of Hollywood Software, played a key role in establishing the firm as the leading provider of distribution software and services to Hollywood and Independent film studios. Prior to co-founding Hollywood Software, Mr. Gajda owned and managed the strategic consulting company, DWG International Inc., which helped entertainment companies develop their three- to five-year strategic systems plans. In his new role, he will be responsible for all of AccessIT's international digital media and delivery business development activities; focused on the UK, continental Europe and the Asia/Pacific region.

Jim Miller, the newly appointed president and chief operating officer of Hollywood Software, has previously served as the chief financial officer of Hollywood Software since 2000. Prior to that, he was Vice President and Corporate Controller at Viacom's publicly held Spelling Entertainment Group, where he was responsible for Financial Planning, Accounting, Public Reporting, MIS and Business Operations for the many entertainment businesses in their portfolio. Prior to Spelling, Jim was interim CFO at Silver King Broadcasting unit following its acquisition of Savoy Pictures, where he was also the Vice President and Corporate Controller for 3 years. Savoy Pictures was a publicly traded start-up film and television production and distribution company with interests in broadcasting. Jim is a Certified Public Accountant who began his career in the entertainment practice of KPMG Peat Marwick after which he spent 5 years in Finance and Planning at The Walt Disney Studios.

Robert Jackovich, co-founder of Hollywood Software will remain the company's Chief Technology Officer in charge of new product development and maintenance of existing products.
