MACROMEDIA AND TELEX CREATE DUAL-PLATFORM MULTIMEDIA SOLUTIONS FOR PORTABLE PRESENTATIONS

 SAN FRANCISCO, July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Macromedia(R), the leading cross-platform supplier of multimedia software products, and Telex Communications Inc. have agreed to bundle Macromedia's Action! SE with Telex's new MagnaByte M2x LCD projection panels that support Macintosh or IBM-compatible PCs. Together, they offer a one-step solution for creating and projecting high-impact onscreen multimedia.
 "This announcement cements the dual-platform commitment made by both companies," said John C. (Bud) Colligan, president and chief executive officer of Macromedia. "Finally, customers will be able to purchase the best in presentation software and projection at one time, no matter which platform they prefer."
 The new MagnaByte M2x features a built-in audio system with a powerful, acoustically tuned, internally mounted speaker and amplifier. Users can now add high-impact sound, using Action!, without needing extra audio equipment. In addition, the M2x incorporates the ability to playback and record Windows digital WAV files from any IBM compatible PC. Therefore, Notebook or other portable computer users can add audio to their presentations without any additional hardware.
 Action! SE is the most widely available software product in the multimedia PC market. Both Action! SE for Macintosh and Action! SE for Windows offer full-featured presentation capabilities in addition to importing and animating slides previously created in other presentation programs, such as SPC Harvard Graphics for Windows, Aldus Persuasion, Lotus Freelance for Windows and Microsoft's PowerPoint. Action! also supports digital video, such as Microsoft's Video for Windows, Intel's Indeo and Apple's QuickTime for Macintosh and Windows.
 "This combination is a breakthrough for the presentation market," said Gary Fisher, marketing manager at Telex. "Now our customers can exhibit high-quality presentations without hauling a lot of hardware. It's the simplest, most effective way to get your message across."
