BE PROVIDES A "FIRST LOOK" AT
BeOS APPLICATIONS AT MACWORLD
New applications run the gamut in demonstrations at the expo

MACWORLD EXPO, SAN FRANCISCO, Calif (January 7, 1997) - At Macworld
Expo, taking place this week in San Francisco, Be, Inc. is providing a
first look at some of the applications being developed for the Be
Operating System (BeOS(tm)) These demonstrations include a wide range
of applications, from word processors to development tools, and from
multimedia and 3D to applications that control sound effects for
theaters and even entire theme parks.

"Macworld provides an excellent venue at which our developers can
provide customers with an early look at their products," said
Jean-Louis Gasse, president and CEO of Be, Inc. "We're happy to help
provide them with this opportunity because, after all, they are the
real stars of the BeOS show."

The company expects more applications to be announced between now and
the time when the BeOS public release ships in the first quarter. Most
developers are awaiting the public release, which will be the first to
ensure forward compatibility, before shipping new software.

"These early products fall within the categories in which we expect
the BeOS to excel - applications used by the 'bit-flingers' and the
digital designers of the content the rest of us use." said Mark
Gonzales, director of marketing at Be, Inc. "Even Lorienne's word
processor goes beyond what most of us would consider as 'standard'
today."

In a related announcement this week, Be is demonstrating for the first
time a "virtual Macintosh" running within the native BeOS environment.
This technology will allow users to continue using many of the
System 7.x MacOS applications they use of their PowerPC systems today,
and will provide software developers with a bridge for their customers
as they bring BeOS native applications to market.

Some of the software that is being demonstrated at Macworld Expo
include;

- Reggae, Lorienne Software
Reggae is new word processor with a frames-based approach. Supporting
a wide range of features, Reggae includes the ability drop objects
into text and have the entire document reflow around the object
interactively, even while dragging the object around on the page.
Screen-to-paper consistency is maintained during all operations.

- LRDraw, Lorrienne Software
Taking an approach similar to Reggae, LRDraw is a new vector-based
drawing program for the BeOS. Lorienne plans to combine its word
processor, LRDraw, and a pixel-based drawing program also under
development into a suite of tools for everyday productivity use.

- Charlotte Web Server, Purity Software
Charlotte is the first full-featured web server for the BeOS. The
server is easy to set up and maintain, and offers features such as
multiple server support, logging and monitoring, local and remote
administration, and CGI support.

- Studio A, Adamation
Studio A is a presentation development tool that simplifies the
creation and scripting of true multimedia presentations. Through
and easy to use interface, designers can build powerful interactive
presentations utilizing sounds, music, still images, graphics, text,
motion video and more.

- dynaVu, dynaVu, Inc./Adamation
Taking user interfaces into the next decade, dynaVu's 3-D and context
sensitive technology combines capabilities of a system browser and a
web browser to provide an entirely new way to view the information
stored on your disk, on CD or DVD, or on the Web. dynaVu may represent
the future of graphical interfaces for personal computers.

- CueMaster & CueStation, Level Control Systems
CueMaster is the heart of an audio design system of unparalleled
versatility and power. Able to handle scores of inputs and control as
many as 128 separate speakers covering theaters, retail spaces or even
entire parks, CueMaster allows audio designers to create unique sound
effects that are difficult or impossible with analog systems. BeBoxes
running CueMaster are already in use in Las Vegas, New York and
Hollywood.

- BeatBox, Locomotiv Allied Technologies
BeatBox is a new audio editing and effects package that allows for
the production of real-time effects on digital streams of music.
Designed for anyone creating soundtracks for events, CDs or
presentations - from music events organizers to disc jockeys to CD
designers. Locomotiv has plans to add video effects editing in
future versions of BeatBox.

- Lois, MIPSYS
A new approach for browsing the web, Lois allows for automatic
indexing, bookmarks, and a tab-based interface allowing for
visualization of multiple pages and sites. Lois also permits the
downloading of an entire site to disk, to any numbers of levels the
user selects.

- AppSketcher, Lorriene Software
Called by one observer, "the modern Interface Builder for the BeOS",
AppSketcher is a software development tool that allows the graphical
creation of application user interfaces. AppSketcher automatically
generates the C and C++ code needed, based on objects within the BeOS
and upon developer created objects. The beta version of AppSketcher
is available to download now, from Be's web site at
http://www.be.com.

- Package Builder, StarCode Software
Package Builder is a development tool that creates graphical
installers for distributing BeOS compatible software. The product
supports type and icon preservation, patching support, file
destination definitions, logging, and a wealth of other features.
StarCode is also working on software servers for distributing software
via the Internet and for user registration management. The beta
version of Package Builder is available for download from
http://www.starcode.com.

- CodeWarrior for BeOS, Metrowerks
The leader in PowerPC software development systems, Metrowerks will be
showing the latest CodeWarrior for BeOS features, and will be
available to discuss their Java implementation for BeOS.

- Perforce for BeOS, Perforce Software
Perforce is a development tool providing a full featured,
high-performance software configuration management system. Built on a
true client/server architecture that doesn't rely on network file
access, Perforce works quickly from initial deployment through to
active use and administration.

- VirtualMac, fredlabs, inc.
Providing a key bridge for users and developers migrating from MacOS
System 7.x systems, VirtualMac provides the ability to run
System 7.x applications within the BeOS. Demonstrated for the first
time at Macworld, VirtualMac will allow users to jump into the
future with new BeOS applications, while maintaining access their
older applications.

In addition to these applications, Be representatives will be
demonstrating other applications under development during
demonstrations of the BeOS itself. Attendees of the Macworld
Expo can see these new applications in action at Be's booth in the
south hall, as well as at the Power Computing booth in north hall.
Information is also available at Be's web site at http://www.be.com.
