MedioStream Demonstrates Full DVD-Format Compatibility at COMDEX

Reprinted from a MedioStream press release:

November 5, 2001 San Jose, CA MedioStream, Inc., a leading provider of PC-based consumer software
for recording digital video on DVD and CD discs, will be showcasing its range of solutions at COMDEX from
Nov. 12-16 in Las Vegas, and demonstrating full compatibility with competing DVD formats, including

MedioStream will be active in DVD-related industry activities at COMDEX, including participating in events
supporting both DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW formats. MedioStream also will provide product demonstrations
and give away free trial software for its neoDVD suite of solutions at booth number L6720 in the Las Vegas
Convention Center.

Introduced in July 2001, the first product from the suite, neoDVDstandard, is a complete DVD authoring solution that
takes out the hassles for consumers who just want to be able to easily edit, author and burn digital video onto a
DVD or CD disc. NeoDVDstandard is compatible with all commercially available DVD recordable drives, including
the Panasonic DVD-RAM/R combination DVDBurner, the Pioneer DVR-A03 DVD-R/RW drive, the Philips
DVD+RW200 series drive, and the Ricoh MP5120A DVD+RW drive.

The digital format is fast becoming the consumer preferred format for audio/video entertainment and data
storage, and Cahners In-Stat Group, a market research firm, forecasts worldwide shipments of DVD recordable
drives to reach 22 million by 2004. However, the problem facing the DVD industry is format compatibility: none of
the writeable formats are fully compatible with each other or even with existing drives and players. This has
caused problems for many consumers, as DVDs created on one format may not be able to be read by all DVD
set-top boxes.
