IOMEGA BUNDLES CORELDRAW (TM) WITH FLOPTICAL AND BERNOULLI PRODUCTS

 OTTAWA, April 26 /PRNewswire --
 New Corel/Iomega Packages Provide
 Users With Storage To Optimize Their Graphics Applications
 Corel Corporation (NASDAQ: COSFF) today announced an agreement with Iomega Corporation (NASDAQ: IOMG) whereby Iomega will bundle Corel's award-winning graphics software package, CorelDRAW, with their 21MB Floptical Insider, Bernoulli MultiDisk 150MB PC Powered and Bernoulli PC Powered 90 removable disk drives. Available immediately, the three new Iomega/Corel bundles will be ready-to-use with CorelDRAW preloaded on Iomega media.
 "Working together, Iomega and Corel deliver an exceptional graphics hardware and software solution," said Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and CEO of Corel Corporation. "The new Iomega/Corel bundles provide end-users with the ideal opportunity to purchase the leading graphics software together with the powerful storage drives they need to optimize their graphics applications."
 "By delivering CorelDRAW preinstalled on Iomega media, the bundle also provides an innovative and convenient approach to making CorelDRAW both easier to install and use for end-users," added Cowpland.
 "Iomega is very pleased to be working with Corel Corporation," said Mike Joseph, vice president of strategic marketing for Iomega. "Graphics users increasingly find that the use of removable mass storage provides not only the storage they need, but also provides near-line access to their projects."
 In addition to having CorelDRAW preinstalled on Iomega media, the new Iomega/Corel packages will include the CD-ROM version of CorelDRAW. The CD-ROM version includes bonus animation flics, charting templates, professionally designed presentation backgrounds, 250 TrueType 1 fonts, and over 14,000 clipart images and symbols.
 FLOPTICAL INSIDER/CORELDRAW PACKAGE FOR ENTRY-LEVEL GRAPHICS USERS
 The Iomega Floptical Insider/CorelDRAW 3.0 package will include the Iomega internal drive, adapter and a Floptical 21MB diskette with the complete Corel software on it. The Floptical Insider is an internal drive designed to install easily into most AT BUS computers.
 "With the Iomega Floptical Drive, CorelDRAW users can transport and manage up to 15 times more data on a single diskette," said Jim Jonez, product manager for Iomega. "CorelDRAW is a powerful graphics application. The Floptical drive's capacity and accessibility will remove storage limitations, making large project and file management much simpler. The Floptical's 21MB capacity makes it ideal for entry- level graphics users."
 The Iomega Floptical Drives are up to three times faster than standard floppy drives. Data transfer rate to and from the media is 1.6 Mbits/sec. As a removable device and companion to a hard drive, the Floptical drive improves convenience and saves time for secondary backup, transporting files and archiving compared to a floppy drive. The Floptical Insider/CorelDRAW package will carry a suggested list price of $629 US. The Floptical Insider/CorelDRAW package is available immediately through Iomega's distribution, superstore and mail order channels.
 THE BERNOULLI 150 AND 90/CORELDRAW FOR SOPHISTICATED USERS
 Another option for CorelDRAW users is the Bernoulli PC Powered MultiDisk 150 and 90/CorelDRAW packages. Everything users need to get up and running is included in the package: the external drive, internal adapter for ISA/EISA PCs, Iomega driver software and a Bernoulli disk. The Corel software comes on the Bernoulli disk and can be installed to run on a hard drive or the Bernoulli drive. A CD-ROM disk and coffee table book of World Design Contest images is included with the MultiDisk 150 bundle. Upon return of the warranty card, Iomega will send free compression software to MultiDisk 150 PC Powered drive customers to achieve an effective 300MB of on-line capacity.
 With the Bernoulli 150 bundle, end users will enjoy the new MultiDisk feature -- the ability to read and write disks of various capacities: 35MB, 65MB, 105MB and 150 MB. The drive is downward compatible with existing Bernoulli products: it reads and writes Bernoulli 90 disks and reads Bernoulli 44 disks.
 The PC Powered Drive concept eliminates a separate AC power cord by drawing power from the computer like a hard disk drive. Data and power are combined in a single cable from the computer to the drive.
 The suggested list price of the Bernoulli 150/Corel package is $1,213 US and the Bernoulli PC Powered 90/Corel package is $796 US. Both packages are available immediately through Iomega's distribution channels.
 CORELDRAW 3.0
 CorelDRAW 3 is the world's first PC graphics program that combines powerful illustration, photo-editing and painting, charting and presentation modules in a single package. The software includes CorelTRACE, a standalone color/black and white autotracing utility, and CorelMOSAIC, a visual file manager that allows batch importing, exporting and printing. A bonus CD-ROM offers more than 14,000 uncompressed clipart symbols and images, more than 250 TrueType and Type 1 fonts, animation flics, and sample CorelCHART templates, bitmaps, and professionally designed backgrounds.
