Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Creo Products Inc.

    SEYBOLD BOSTON 2001, April 10 /PRNewswire/ - CreoScitex(TM), a division
 of Creo Products Inc. (NASDAQ:   CREO; TSE: CRE), completes its first year of
 operation with new entries in the creative market with the latest software and
 digital tools released at Seybold Boston 2001. CreoScitex was formed in April
 2000 by merging the prepress divisions of Creo Products Inc. and Scitex
 Corporation Ltd. Now the largest independent prepress provider, CreoScitex is
 a world leader in digital imaging solutions for the digital preprint and
 digital printing markets with the vision of transforming the production of
 print. CreoScitex is releasing these exciting new products at Seybold:
 
     InSite This new version of the prepress InSite Internet portal provides
 print buyers with the ability to submit complete print jobs to the printer
 over the Internet, perform interactive remote proofing, and collaborate online
 using the Smart Review and Team Review technologies. No special tools are
 required for print buyers other than access to the Internet and an Internet
 browser.
     InSite will save printers time, streamline communications with their
 customers, and reduce approval cycle and turnaround times.
 
     Synapse(TM) creates a one-button PDF that is preflighted within the
 creative desktop. Synapse supports the PDF workflow by providing content
 creators with the tools to easily create PDF files that match the exact
 specifications of their print vendor.
 
     Pagelet(TM) is a new plug-in for Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) that assembles PDF
 "pagelets" or partial pages exported to PDF from a variety of sources. PDF
 pagelets are being used for partial page content, where they have largely
 replaced EPS, traditionally the defacto standard for the distribution of
 artwork. Pagelet is the artwork placement solution that allows for the
 assembly of sub-pages within Adobe Acrobat, saving time and effort.
 
     Leaf Products has released the Leaf(TM) Digital Large Format solution
 that includes an electronic shutter that is centrally controlled via Leaf
 software, and uses a standard interface between Leaf digital camera backs and
 large format cameras. This highly flexible and cost-effective solution allows
 photographers to leverage their existing equipment.
 
     12 Months of Innovation
     Over the last year, CreoScitex has aligned its comprehensive product
 offering and now provides the best in class products in every category. New
 products and versions with innovative features reflect the synergies that have
 already been realized through the merger of the two leading prepress
 companies. The breakthrough 8-page CTP, the Lotem 800 Quantum, combines the
 best of the two most accepted and advanced CTP product lines into one. It
 features the speed and automation of the Lotem(TM) CTP systems and the
 SQUAREspot(TM) thermal imaging heads of the Trendsetter(R). The first beta
 units have been well received by customers and early production will begin in
 several months. CreoScitex has also met market demands for cross connectivity
 between the Brisque(TM) workflow and Trendsetter(R) output devices, as well as
 the Prinergy(TM) workflow and Lotem(TM) platesetters. Innovation continues as
 the company adds more than one patent per week to its more than 300 patents or
 applications pending, with more than 75 patent applications filed in the last
 year.
     CreoScitex's new products are being demonstrated at Seybold Boston April
 10-12 at CreoScitex booth No. 2605. More detailed information about new
 products is available in press releases dedicated to each product or at
 www.creoscitex.com.
