 companies," comments Roger Kleckner, president of Xytech Systems.  "Xytech
 foresees new business opportunities that are currently tied up in physical
 vault libraries.  We plan to work with our clients and eMotion to manage this
 information and exploit its true market potential. We are confident that our
 experience in workflow management for physical assets, combined with eMotion's
 expertise in digital media management, will prove to be a powerful
 combination."

 partnership with Xytech creates a tightly integrated media management
 solution," said Cynthia Francis, chief marketing officer and vice president of
