Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from C-Cube Microsystems

    LAS VEGAS, NAB 2001, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 C-Cube Microsystems (Nasdaq:   CUBE), the market leader in digital video
 processors, today announced its DVxpress(TM)-MX single-chip codecs have been
 incorporated into the newest PC and MAC DV editing boards being shown here
 this week by market leader Matrox.  The selection of DVxpress-MX by Matrox
 further endorses C-Cube's position as the number one supplier of video codec
 into the professional broadcast market.
     "The programmable nature of the DVxpress-MX chip provides the manufacturer
 with world-class, high-quality, multi-format, video compression solutions to
 suit the needs of a growing and diverse market," said Bob Saffari, C-Cube
 director of Marketing for Advanced Video Products.
     "The new Matrox RT2500 builds on the incredible success of our RT2000
 real-time editing platform that has won numerous awards and been delivered to
 over 35,000 users worldwide in just over a year," said Spiro Plagakis, Matrox
 vice president of Sales and Marketing.  "C-Cube's DVxpress-MX25 is an integral
 part of both products, providing dual-stream real-time DV and MPEG-2 editing
 and a direct interface with the Matrox graphics processor for real-time 3D
 effects."
     The Matrox RT2500, to be announced at the National Association of
 Broadcasters 2001 (NAB) show in Las Vegas, is a single-board, real-time,
 non-linear editing solution for corporate and event video artists that
 provides more professional features than any other video editing card in its
 class.  The Matrox RT2500 allows users to work with two native-DV or MPEG-2
 video streams and a 32-bit uncompressed graphics layer, simultaneously, in
 real-time.  The Matrox RTMac, introduced in March 2001, is the first real-time
 editing platform for the Apple Power Mac G4 and Final Cut Pro.  The Matrox
 RTMac provides professional-quality, real-time editing, compositing, and
 effects solutions.
 
     About DVxpress-MX
     The DVxpress-MX is the only single-chip, multi-format (MPEG and DV) codec
 that provides an all-digital, seamless bridge for the transfer of video
 content from acquisition to editing to distribution for non-linear editing and
 video distribution applications.  This capability is a critical enabler of the
 market shift from proprietary solutions to standards-based, all-digital
 solutions.  The codec dual stream decoding capability allows any two streams
 of DV and/or MPEG-2 video to be edited side-by-side with time-code driven
 frame accuracy.  DVxpress-MX also offers a full spectrum of special effects
 that may be applied and viewed in real time.
     C-Cube will be in booth number S3313 in the Sands Expo Center, Exhibit
 Hall D, at the NAB 2001 Show (National Association of Broadcasters),
 April 23-26 in Las Vegas.
 
     About C-Cube
     The company is a worldwide leader in digital media processing and is
 leading the way with new communication processors and networked consumer
 products.  With a focus on DVD, set-top boxes and codec-enabled products,
 C-Cube is driving the technology for the "networked digital home."
