COMMACK, NY--(MARKET WIRE)--Dec 13, 2006 -- Protocall Technologies Incorporated (OTC BB:PCLI.OB - News) (www.protocall.com), a leading provider of DVD on-demand systems for retailers and etailers, today announced the appointment of Syd Dufton as President of its newly formed TitleMatch Entertainment Group. With more than 17 years of executive level experience in the consumer technology sector, Dufton will be responsible for leading the new division as it expands into the $23 billion DVD market.


Dufton's background includes managing director of a private investment firm and founder of several very successful start-up ventures. Mr. Dufton has also worked closely with Founder & CEO Bruce Newman in the past as Protocall's Vice President of Sales and Channel Marketing where Dufton helped the company ink distribution deals and product licensing agreements with some of the industry's leading brands including IBM, Intuit and Corel.


"Having had the opportunity to work with Syd previously, I know first hand what a talented and exceptional leader he is and I believe that his knowledge in building distribution infrastructures combined with his consumer technology experience makes him a perfect fit to lead our new TitleMatch division," said Bruce Newman, Founder and CEO of Protocall.


Dufton's appointment as President of TitleMatch Entertainment comes as the company is preparing to unveil a significantly upgraded version of their TitleMatch(TM) DVD on-demand system at the January 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.


"TitleMatch is about to revolutionize the way digital entertainment products are distributed today, and I am excited and very honored to be heading up this new venture," said Syd Dufton, President of TitleMatch Entertainment.


Most recently Mr. Dufton served as a partner and Managing Director of City Capital Partners, a venture capital firm that focused on young privately held technology companies. His background also includes founding AdvanceWork International, a first of its kind and award-winning mobile distance learning company, which became a pioneer in the "M-Learning" space. Prior to AdvanceWork, Dufton was a principal at privately held Syracuse Language Systems where he transformed the fledgling software company into a global leader in language learning software and was the visionary behind the "Success Series" of language instruction CD-ROMs that went on to become one of the industry's best selling products before the company was sold to Cendant and later to Vivendi Universal.


Mr. Dufton is a graduate of Gettysburg College and is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain. He resides on the North Fork of Long Island with his wife and five children.
