Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Thaon Communications, Inc.

    LOS ANGELES, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Thaon Communications, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   THAO) announced today that it has acquired 100% of the
 shares of the Nevada corporation "Legal Broadcast Company" (LBC), a
 significant provider of video documentation and storage for the legal,
 insurance, and corporate business sectors.
     LBC provides law firms, corporations, and insurance companies with
 quality, consistency, and reliability in the creation, review, storage, and
 presentation of video, particularly the video documentation and storage of
 legal depositions.  The legal video production business is a rapidly expanding
 market with substantial profit margins and limited competition.  LBC is
 expected to contribute several million dollars in revenues to Thaon for
 calendar year 2001.  Additionally, LBC has initiated an aggressive roll up
 plan, which utilizes Thaon's subsidiary Castpro.com live streaming
 technologies as a mechanism for expanding LBC's revenue base.
     LBC offers products that utilize cost and time saving technologies that
 provide real time interactivity and allow attorneys to view legal events such
 as depositions, hearings, and trials remotely over the Internet.  Combined
 with their current growing book of business and an aggressive roll up plan,
 LBC intends to securely maintain its role as the industry leader.  In
 addition, to the seasoned management team and current revenue base, Thaon's
 management was attracted to the opportunity for the company's future growth by
 incorporating use of live and VOD webcasting capabilities, making it an
 attractive sibling to Castpro.com.
     "The addition of LBC to the Thaon corporate family is consistent with our
 commitment to continue to add complimentary and profitable business units to
 the company.  LBC has a stable book of business and an intelligent plan for
 growth based on a proven business model.  As a Thaon company, it is now
 positioned to make use of streaming technologies offered by Thaon subsidiary
 Castpro.com and offer existing clients new and exciting services that will
 decrease costs and increase productivity," stated Adam Anthony, President of
 Thaon.
     In addition, Thaon has appointed LBC's President, Mr. Doug Mondo to the
 Thaon Communications Board of Directors.  Mr. Mondo has 15 years of experience
 providing technology solutions to the legal profession.  He was the founder
 and President of The Cardomon Group a successful litigation support company
 since 1985.  As President and CEO of Cardomon Mr. Mondo successfully
 established himself as a creative innovator with the ability to consistently
 produce profits for the company.  In recognition of his success, he was
 elected as the president of the Young Entrepreneurs' Organization a worldwide
 network of business founders.  Mr. Mondo's experience in the industry,
 national business relationships, and technical know-how will provide LBC and
 Thaon with valuable leadership.  To accommodate Mr. Mondo's position on the
 Board, as well as providing other Board of Directors seats for Thaon
 subsidiary CEOs, Messrs. Leodegario Q. Tan and Roy U. Rayo were removed from
 the Thaon Board.

 solutions, capitalizing on emerging markets resulting from the convergence of
