New Visual Announces Name Change.

Business Editors & High-Tech Writers


New Visual Corp. (OTCBB: NVEI) today announced it has changed its name from New Visual Entertainment to New Visual Corp.

The name change was overwhelmingly approved at the company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders held yesterday in San Diego.

"New Visual began eight years ago as an entertainment company, developing 3-D special venue short films. Today, with the company's significant shift to a new strategic focus -- bringing our Cu@OCx technology to market -- we wanted to reflect this change in our corporate identity. Although a portion of our operations remain in the entertainment arena, our new name better supports this focus," said Ray Willenberg Jr., president and CEO of New Visual. "As we continue to focus our strategy on technology, the new name allows us to retain our corporate identity while better reflecting our future plans."

At the meeting yesterday, Rich Wilson, vice president, unveiled the new corporate identity and Web site and summarized the company's marketing and public relations plans. Wilson also gave a presentation of New Visual's Cu@OCx technology, and provided an overview of the transmission technology in layman's terms as well as the company's development plans for both the technology and future products. In addition, Wilson revealed that the first alpha product will be an OC1 line driver developed for small- and medium-sized enterprises. It will use four copper wires and be capable of delivering data at speeds up to 52 Mbps with a fiber-to-copper interface. The OC1 line driver will be symmetrical but will not use a digital signal processor.

Additional items that were overwhelmingly approved by shareholders include:

-- Re-election of Ivan Berkowitz, Lilly Beter, Allan Blevins,

Bruce Brown, John Howell, Celso B. Suarez Jr., Ray Willenberg

Jr., and C. Rich Wilson III to the board of directors. All

directors will serve until the 2002 Annual Meeting of


-- Ratification of the appointment of Grassi & Co. CPAs, P.C. as

New Visual's independent auditor.
