MACROVISION PREMIERS NEW SCRAMBLING SYSTEM

 MACROVISION PREMIERS NEW SCRAMBLING SYSTEM
 VES-TD (Dedicated) Provides Low-Cost Scrambling
 for Private Network Video Transmissions
 LAS VEGAS, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Macrovision unveiled its VES- TD (Dedicated) video transmission scrambling system today at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) tradeshow. The VES-TD video transmission scrambling system offers the highest security for private, dedicated network television transmissions -- at a cost far below that of other scrambling systems.
 The VES-TD is used to protect video transmissions for television, teleconferences, educational programming and more. Both audio and video are completely concealed, while the decoded video retains the original quality.
 "With the VES-TD encoder priced under $5,000, encryption is now far more economically viable for the operators of small and medium- size video networks, as well as networks requiring multiple encoders," said Joseph F. Swyt, president of Macrovision. How it Works
 The VES-TD operates in dedicated systems where all decoders in a particular network are simultaneously and exclusively controlled by the network's dedicated encoder(s). Accordingly, access to network video transmissions is restricted to authorized personnel only.
 The VES-TD is easy to use: User interfaces have been minimized so transmission scrambling is initiated with the touch of one button on the encoder, while decoder operation is completely hands-off and automatic. No fine tuning or adjustments are required. For users, the ease-of-use of the VES-TD eliminates the need for a technical person at each encoding or decoding site. Installation is also easy, as the VES-TD features simple baseband video (BNC) and audio (RCA) connections. No additional equipment is required. Easy Integration
 The 8-bit digital video VES-TD encoders and decoders accept and pass standard, full-motion NTSC or PAL signals (separate baseband video and audio), which allows for easy integration into any transmission system.
 The scrambled video and audio output can traverse satellite, terrestrial microwave, cable and fiber optic links. Multiple Security Levels
 The VES-TD features multiple levels of security including:
 -- Proprietary digital line offset video scrambling algorithm
 -- Separate audio frequency transformation algorithm
 -- Dedicated encoder/decoder systems with unique, factory- programmed addressing control and password protection
 -- Safeguarded circuit design Price/Availability
 The VES-TD (Dedicated) encoder is $4,745 with decoders priced around $4,000 depending on quantity purchased (U.S. domestic prices). Both units are available 30 days ARO.
