ROBERT E. SEIDENGLANZ STEPS DOWN AS

 HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert E. Seidenglanz has announced that he is stepping down from his position of chairman and chief executive officer of Laser-Pacific Media Corp. in order to devote his time to the development of Entertainment Company of America (ECA).
 Seidenglanz, an entertainment industry leader for the past two decades, was the founder and chief of Compact Video, a pioneering video production and post-production service facility, from 1971 to 1982. He then acquired Pacific Video, guiding that company out of bankruptcy to a position of industry prominence. In 1990 Pacific Video Inc. merged with Spectra Image Inc. forming Laser-Pacific Media Corp., a full service motion picture and television post-production entity with Seidenglanz as its chairman and chief executive officer. Seidenglanz, who continues to be Laser-Pacific's largest single shareholder and a director, will remain available to Laser-Pacific's Board of Directors in an advisory capacity.
 "I take great pride in the accomplishments of Laser-Pacific. The team we put together has kept the company in the forefront of technology and has truly brought improvements to the industry. My move to ECA is an exciting opportunity to do the same in a new field of interactive programming. While I will miss the day-to-day involvement with Laser- Pacific, I look forward to becoming one of Laser-Pacific's post- production customers in the future."
 Gregory L. Biller, vice chairman of Laser-Pacific since its formation, will fill the positions of chairman and chief executive officer vacated by Seidenglanz. Biller, formerly chairman and chief executive officer of Spectra Image, is a long-time business associate of Seidenglanz, beginning with the founding of Compact Video. Of Seidenglanz' departure, Biller states that "Robert has been a guiding force in the industry for many years. I am confident that he will be as successful in his new venture as he has been in past ones. I, as well as Laser-Pacific, expect to continue to enjoy an excellent relationship with Robert in the future. He leaves with our wishes for great success."
 Two-time Emmy award-winning Laser-Pacific operates television and motion picture post-production facilities in Hollywood, Burbank, Calif., New York, and in Vancouver, Canada, through a majority interest in Pacific Video Canada. Laser-Pacific currently provides technical services to approximately 40 television series.
