Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from DSMCi

    BELTSVILLE, Md., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- DSMCi,
 a leader in implementing media asset management solutions for media-rich
 organizations and Artesia Technologies, the leader in enterprise Digital Asset
 Management (DAM), announced today the development of Mirus.AT(TM), a truly
 out-of-the-box media asset management (MAM) solution that integrates Artesia
 Technologies' award winning TEAMS(TM) asset management product. Mirus.AT
 provides a full-scale MAM solution, allowing users to manage all types of rich
 media content and making it the preferred solution for customers that require
 an enterprise scalable solution. This stand-alone apparatus comes equipped
 with all the best-in-class software and hardware components needed for
 digitization and management of media assets, with the advanced functionality
 of the TEAMS product. Mirus.AT is both an ideal starter system and stepping
 stone for transitioning to organizational use of TEAMS asset management
 systems.
     Mirus.AT allows users to catalog, manage, store, and distribute media
 assets entirely from this self-contained unit. The simple design of Mirus.AT
 allows each component to be customized to provide precisely what is needed
 while eliminating the normal complications and time associated with internal
 system integration, which enables the effortless development of an asset
 management system within the organization. Designed for easy access,
 maintenance and customization, the unit is assembled by DSMCi to each user's
 specifications.
     Mirus.AT is an enhancement to DSMCi's groundbreaking Mirus system -- the
 world's first true out-of-the-box MAM solution. "We understand that most
 organizations need a solution that meets their immediate needs but also
 provides for easy expansion as the demand for a more robust system arises,"
 said Duane Shugars, CEO of DSMCi. "By providing the additional functionality
 of Artesia's TEAMS product," he continued,  "we are able to offer clients an
 affordable, scalable enterprise wide MAM solution that is extremely
 multifunctional and can be built upon as opposed to outgrown," he concluded.
     Artesia's TEAMS solution has been adopted by organizations as varied and
 prestigious as AOL Time Warner, Stanford University and General Motors.
 Specific applications available within TEAMS allow users to search, manage,
 assemble, edit and transform rich media assets for distribution across
 multiple channels, platforms and formats.
     "We're excited to be working with DSMCi as this relationship helps to
 propel even further the widespread adoption of our architecture as the DAM
 platform of choice," said Sebastian Holst, vice president of marketing for
 Artesia Technologies.  "Their long-term experience within the field coupled
 with the proven value of our technology offers a win-win situation for clients
 that understand the strategic imperative within today's economy of managing
 their digital assets."
     This strong alliance with Artesia Technologies adds another option to the
 value proposition that DSMCi offers its customers as they embark on their
 media asset management strategy.

 Management (DAM). Artesia's core product TEAMS, enables organizations to
