Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Helius, Inc.

    LAS VEGAS, NAB CONFERENCE, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/
 -- Helius Inc., the premier technology developer for satellite data solutions,
 today unveiled its newest offering-MediaWrite(TM), a software package that
 enables content and media file distribution through satellite and landline
 transfers.  MediaWrite enables the transmission of data files from a data
 manager to a group of end users, simplifying the distribution and management
 of data for corporate IS managers and content providers.  The software is
 facilitated through a customized browser-based management console, making
 MediaWrite a simple tool to deploy.
     The Helius distribution software joins a strong and impressive portfolio,
 which includes a newly-issued patent, trade and industry secrets and valuable
 intellectual property.
     Myron Mosbarger, president and chief executive of Helius, says, "The
 release of the MediaWrite software has been an important step forward for us.
 We have been known in the satellite data distribution industry as a leader in
 development for router software and technology.  By leveraging our router
 expertise, we increase our offering to the satellite and terrestrial data
 distribution industry."
     MediaWrite consists of three components that manage the stages for the
 distribution of data.  They are MediaBuilder, MediaSender and MediaReceiver.
     MediaBuilder is a browser-based application that enables the creation of
 catalog entries, media files or data packages.  The creator of data content
 assembles files in the creation module and sends them to MediaSender.
 MediaSender gathers the file content and pushes it over satellite or landline
 connectors.  The files are sent in stages or packets to MediaReceiver.  This
 last component assembles the data and forwards it on to the end user.  The
 data can be sent to unlimited viewers who are authorized to receive it.
     The MediaWrite software has various levels of functionality within its
 model.  The features range from a guaranteed packet delivery transmission with
 or without e-mail confirmation to a best effort delivery package.  Users can
 choose from various features to customize the product to fit their needs.
     Licensing for MediaWrite is available in packaged options and on a per
 receiver basis.  For more information on the licensing schedule, contact
 Richard Jackman at 801-764-9020.  Helius will demonstrate the new product at
 the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) 2001 conference in Las Vegas.
