Vancouver, CANADA / TheNewswire / January 10, 2018 – Imagination Park Entertainment Inc. (CSE: IP) (OTC: IPNFF) (FRA: GMS1) ("Imagination Park" or "Company") and InterKnowlogy LLC ("InterKnowlogy") are pleased to announce Imagination Park has completed the payment in full to InterKnowlogy of US$ 500,000 to satisfy all contractual compensation terms for full joint ownership of XenoHolographic Inc. ("XenoHolographic") which includes, among other things, equal ownership of XenoHolographic’s preeminent augmented reality applications, XenoRoom(R) and XenoSideKick(R).

Alen Paul Silverrstieen, CEO of Imagination Park and Co-Founder of XenoHolographic, stated: "The full funding of this joint venture, virtually a full six-months earlier than the originally scheduled completion date of July 5, 2018, indicates the level of third-party independent support and credibility XenoHolographic’s suite of applications have generated in the user market as well as technology industry. This milestone not only solidifies our commitment to augmented and mixed reality applications, but also Imagination Park’s position as an international AR/MR market participant just in advance of XenoHolographic’s new mobile product releases of XenoApp(R) and XenoMarker(R) in March, 2018."

Tim Huckaby, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of XenoHolographic stated: "XenoHolographic’s product complement is designed to be a technically superior suite of applications with the potential to generate wide adoption and, consequently, globally driven revenue. With the near-future integration of Artificial Intelligence into the AR experience, as well as our proprietary Blockchain for proof of play, the Company is well positioned to be a leader in the AR space."

Rodney Guzman, Chief Technology Officer of XenoHolographic added: "Here at XenoHolographic, we seek to deliver an AR platform that will not require developers but which can be deployed overnight. With our proprietary AR technology, we can manage all of a business’s AR content without re-deploying any apps – and even so without the need to convert to, nor create, 3D content. We can deploy our platform with already available and existing video content – allowing our clients to immediately participate in the AR/VR revolution."
