eCom eCom.com: New Product Can Solve Dot-Com Bandwidth Dilemma

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from eCom eCom.com, Inc.

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- eCom eCom.com, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   ECEC) announced today that it has completed development
 of a new system, dubbed DryIce SIS(TM) ("Still Image Server"), that will
 significantly reduce bandwidth cost by compressing still images at
 extraordinary ratios.  The new product is a desk-top box with built-in
 software that achieves compression ratios of up to 4,000:1. An enhanced
 version, soon to be released, promises to deliver ratios of 25,000:1 or more.
     "The power of DryIce SIS(TM) is astonishing," said David J. Panaia, eCom
 eCom Chairman of the Board.  "As a comparison, JPEG, the industry's current
 standard, is reported to achieve a compression ratio of only 500:1.  Using
 such low compression ratios, for companies as large as AOL Time Warner or
 Amazon, it is estimated that future bandwidth costs will be measured in
 billions of dollars!  Using DryIce SIS(TM), a substantial portion of this
 money can be added to the clients' bottom lines."
     According to Panaia, eCom intends to offer the software through
 arrangements that convert a large portion of client-company savings into eCom
 revenues.  "The growing demand for bandwidth will drive the growth of the
 market for DryIce software," said Panaia.  "Not only will DryIce SIS(TM)
 revolutionize how data is compressed, transmitted and viewed electronically,
 but it will also provide financial benefits that can breathe life back into
 the ailing dot-com sector."
     In preparation for release of the DryIce SIS(TM) system, eCom is working
 with a major medical imaging corporation to validate the compression
 capabilities of SIS.  Results of the tests will be released as soon as they
 are available.
