Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Global Software Service

    LAS VEGAS and BEIJING, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Software
 Source/AsiaStar Computer Software Company has developed a new breed of
 software to accurately measure Streaming Media and Digital TV usage without
 the need to access client computers or media servers, as is the case with
 current measurement software.  The software, known as Digital Ratings, was
 tested in China and shows, for the first time, real-time streaming media usage
 in the Chinese marketplace.  Digital Ratings was developed with cooperation
 from Chinese teams and US to advance broadband streaming and Internet
 broadcasting initiatives globally.
     A brief glimpse of the real-time software was displayed with permission
 from GSS and AsiaStar at the National Association of Broadcasters
 SuperSession.
     The demonstration displays the Digital Ratings Network as it captured
 Chinese streaming statistics from Chinese ISP's for display in real-time. In
 Beijing, AsiaStar President Zhou Xijun commented, "We are very proud to work
 with Global Software Source and develop the first type of software of this
 manner in China, that can grow to be used cooperatively with other countries.
 It is almost an overwhelming task to build an Internet TV, Radio, and
 Broadband guide and statistics.  As the Internet is still in its infancy, we
 feel that we have laid groundwork to work together with all other companies
 across the US that want to further develop the software, and enhance and grow
 the Internet and Digital Broadcasting around the world."
     Managing Director Dennis Tomes remarked, "GSS provides sophisticated
 broadband software development that will help content distribution for US and
 global broadcasters.  Digital Ratings.net is a cost-effective, high quality
 software that takes into consideration the metrics which traditional
 broadcasters value.  GSS' development of the Digital Ratings Network software
 proves that our services can help US companies enter the Chinese market, and
 that China can cooperate with US companies to develop advanced Internet
 capabilities."
