Henninger Media Services Launches Web Site  to Promote DVD Industry   News and 
                                   Commentary                                   
                       (Business Wire; 05/03/99)                       

ARLINGTON, VA. (May 3) BUSINESS WIRE -May 3, 1999--Embarking on the next phase 
in Henninger Media Services' multimedia strategic initiative, the company 
Monday launched a new Internet-based resource for both consumers and businesses 
aimed at fostering greater recognition and awareness of the DVD industry.

The Web site, www.dvdexperts.com, is dedicated to helping DVD producers and 
users understand the major marketing concepts behind DVD and assessing the wide 
variety of technology solutions that can be developed by using the DVD format.

DVDexperts.com was conceived as an integral part of Henninger's ongoing 
commitment to promote DVD as the ideal format for applications ranging from 
education and entertainment to corporate presentations, training and museums. 
Henninger Interactive Media, the multimedia arm of Henninger Media Services, is 
actively working with others in industry, government and the nonprofit sector 
to broaden awareness of DVD's quality, versatility and flexibility.

The site provides a wide variety of educational information and industry news, 
title gallery, event calendar, frequently asked questions, software resources, 
discussion forums and other content related to DVD. DVDexperts.com is also a 
natural extension of Henninger's mission to bring DVD production to its optimum 
level of creativity and performance and, as a result, become the delivery media 
of choice for film, corporate and educational applications.

According to Spence Burton, Henninger's director of marketing, DVD facilitates 
multiple streams of program content such as foreign languages, audio mixes, 
subtitles and camera angles.

"DVD viewers get quick and easy access to screen entire shows, as well as real 
time response in reviewing particular segments or additional program content 
information," Burton explained. "By repackaging programs in the DVD format, we 
can open new markets since DVD maximizes the compatibility between computer 
platforms and the home video entertainment audience."

Henninger Media Services last month unveiled the largest DVD production 
facility on the East Coast designed to support the phenomenal growth that 
Henninger Interactive Media was experiencing in DVD authoring services. 
Reflecting increased demand from the corporate, entertainment and 
communications communities, the new five-suite DVD Center includes two encoding 
stations and three authoring stations, all from Sonic Solutions, as well as a 
graphics workstation dedicated to DVD interface design.

Since its formation last year, Henninger Interactive Media has used Sonic 
Solutions DVD Creator to encode and author DVD titles supporting a wide range 
of production services for customers whose applications include film, music 
videos, corporate presentations, kiosks and training.
