Arthur Andersen taps DigitalXpress for satellite video services.

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 25, 1996-- DigitalXpress(TM) has announced that Arthur Andersen, a multidisciplinary professional services firm, has contracted to use their XpressVideo(TM) satellite communications service to transmit video business information to their employees in North America. Arthur Andersen will replace their existing analog television network with XpressVideo's digital service for broadcasting training and corporate communications to sites in the U.S. and Canada.

"Our XpressVideo satellite communications service is a unique approach to the problem of distributing timely, high-quality video to large numbers of graphically dispersed locations," said Wayne St.Clair, vice president of DigitalXpress.

XpressVideo allows any organization to afford their own private television network and transmit high-quality, full-motion video to any number of uniquely addressable remote locations. After installing small satellite receiving antennas at each remote location, customers send their video information to the DigitalXpress uplink center where it is broadcast to designated locations. Customers pay only for the time they use, making it ideal for distance learning, corporate news and information channels, sales training and many other applications.

In addition to XpressVideo, DigitalXpress offers XpressData(TM) for the broadcast of high-speed digital data and XpressPlus(TM) for multimedia - each providing the efficiency, reliability and security that businesses, government agencies and other organizations demand. Arthur Andersen is a business unit of Andersen Worldwide, the world's largest professional services provider.

DigitalXpress specializes in low-cost satellite-to-desktop digital video and data information distribution systems and was established through the joint efforts of Boeing Commercial Space Company, Conus Communications and Computing Devices International. Initial service offerings are focused on U.S. corporate requirements. Offices are located at 2550 University Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota 55114, telephone 612-647-5211.
