the product launch. These two products are authoring tools that produce the
two basic elements of QuickTime VR(TM), panoramic movies and object movies.

Pano Worx and VR Object Worx. Details on the offer will be posted on the VR
Toolbox web site at www.vrtoolbox.com. A reseller and distributor program
is being developed in order to make the product line readily available
worldwide. The entire product line will be available for both Windows(TM)
and the Mac OS. The first releases are aimed at the Mac OS with Windows
versions targeted to be available by the end of the year. VR Toolbox aims
to deliver precision, power and professionalism to all segments of the
Immersive Imaging market, including professional photographers, web
developers, multimedia producers, educators and hobbyists.

On September 7th, VR Toolbox will offer full working evaluation copies of
both VR Pano Worx and VR Object Worx. These free demos will be available
for download from the VR Toolbox web site at www.vrtoolbox.com. VR Toolbox
will continue to offer eval copies of new products and upgrades, as they

VR Toolbox, Inc. is a young company, who made its debut on July 21, 1998 at
SIGGRAPH 98 in Orlando, Florida. The company's focus is the development and
marketing of software tools for QuickTime VR. The goal of VR Toolbox is to
produce the most powerful, highly advanced and intuitive QTVR programs
available anywhere. VR Toolbox, Inc. has acquired this technology from its
creators, Florida-based Econ Technologies, Inc. Pittsburgh-based VR
Toolbox, Inc. promises to continually strive to be an exciting, important
and influential force within the Immersive Imaging industry and its
emerging technologies. VR Toolbox's financial strength comes from the same
source as that of its sister company, Emery Manufacturing & Equipment,
Inc.(TM), makers of high line object rotational devices and hardware for
the Immersive Imaging photographic professional.

"We want to emphasize our commitment to the QuickTime VR community," says
Walter Neals, Vice President for Marketing. "VR Toolbox is dedicated to the
development and evolution of our products, including providing timely
upgrades and exploring new ideas in QTVR. This company has both the
capabilities and resources to push the envelope of Immersive Imaging."

Apple Computer, Inc.(TM) developed QuickTime VR as an integral aspect of
its QuickTime media layer. Through Apple's vigorous support of the
technology's adoption as an industry standard, QuickTime is succeeding in
becoming the cross-platform standard, worldwide. And now, with Apple's
recent release of QuickTime 3.0, QuickTime VR v2.1 and streaming QuickTime
Plug-In v2.0, that standard's acceptance is being achieved. QuickTime VR is
an extension of Apple's basic QuickTime technology and supports two
different types of views, QTVR panorama movies and QTVR object movies.

Interest by the Press in reviewing VR Toolbox products and/or including the
products in relative articles and features will be given high-priority
support. Please contact Walter Neals at walter@vrtoolbox.com.

Distributor, Reseller and Dealer inquiries are welcome.
