NETWORK IMAGING SIGNS AGREEMENTS VALUED AT $40 MILLION

 HERNDON, Va., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Imaging Corporation ("NIC") (NASDAQ: IMGX; Boston Exchange: IGX) said it signed four non- exclusive distribution agreements with applied Digital Systems, Ahearn & Soper, G&R Technologies and Computer Graphics for its patented SPANServer(TM) optical disk storage technology.
 NIC officials said they expect the contracts to generate $40 million in new SPANServer revenues in North America over the next several years.
 Ahearn & Soper, with offices in Toronto and New York City, provides distribution coverage for all of Canada and the entire New England area. G&R adds coverage for the upper Midwest, and Computer Graphics covers the mid-Atlantic area. Applied Digital Systems, with offices in Boston, Rochester, N.Y., Washington, Connecticut and Orlando, Fla., provides coverage for the east coast with special emphasis on the Federal Government.
 The SPANServer consists of three fully integrated components: optical disk drives, a robotic library or jukebox and the SPANS software, developed by NIC's Symmetrical Technologics division.
 "De Facto" Standard
 The SPANServer can store up to 1.5 terabytes of data or 25 million pages of information. The SPANServer plugs directly into any Ethernet network and provides complete file management services to any PC or workstation operating on UNIX or Novell environments. It is the only optical storage device that converts the optical disk into a network storage peripheral. Because of its conformance with open systems standards and its ease of installation, the SPANServer is the only optical storage product that can be easily marketed through national distribution channels.
 Miller Houston, director, Peripherals Division of Ahearn & Soper, said, "We believe SPANServer optical storage peripherals will become the de facto standard for optical storage. SPANServer is the only optical product that meets the criteria to be sold effectively through the distribution channel." He also said, "Historically, optical storage products have not sold well through distribution. The difficulty associated with integration, support and sales cycle of software driver- based subsystems have been the problem. The SPANServer eliminates all of these objections and makes optical devices simple storage peripherals."
