Business Editors/High Tech Writers

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 10, 2001

On2 Technologies Inc., The Duck Corporation (AMEX: ONT), the industry leader in video compression technology, today announced that the plug-in for On2's VP3 codec will continue to be available via the component download feature in Apple's QuickTime 5.

The VP3.2 plug-in allows any QuickTime user to decode On2 encoded content and affords QuickTime Pro customers the opportunity to encode video for broadband distribution within the QuickTime Pro application. The VP3.2 codec is the predecessor to On2's most recent codec, VP4, and provides for full-screen, full-motion, television-quality streaming video at data rates as low as 200 kilobits per second.

"On2's VP3 plug-in for QuickTime 5 is a testament to the quality of our codec and we continue to receive very positive feedback from developers who demand the highest quality," said Douglas A. McIntyre, President and CEO of On2 Technologies.
