HEURIS Ships New Product for Extracting Files from DVDs.

St. Louis, March 19, 2002-HEURIS, makers of the most widely used MPEG
Encoding Software, MPEG Power Professional announced today that they are
shipping a new product called the Xtractor. The Xtractor can be used to
extract or “rip” audio and video files from unencrypted DVDs. Users can
demultiplex and extract elementary streams from MPEG 1 system streams, MPEG
2 program streams, and MPEG 2 transport streams, including HDTV streams
recorded with a DTV decoder card. The extractor can also be used to extract
DVD VR formatted MPEG streams recorded with Hitachi DZMV100 DVD camera or
Panasonic’s DMR-E20 line of DVD recorders. This gives users the ability to
add new and different audio tracks to encoded video streams or simply to
recover elementary streams from a finished DVD project.

The HEURIS Xtractor is compatible with MAC OS and Windows operating systems
and features an easy to use, drag and drop interface. Users simply, select
an output folder, drag and drop the MPEG file onto Xtractor, and the MPEG
elementary streams are extracted and saved to the output directory.

“HEURIS is pleased to offer this simple yet important utility,” said HEURIS
President, Brian Quandt. “Our customers have asked for the ability to go
back and add different tracks to a previously encoded unencrypted project.
This product allows them to do just that–effortlessly and cost
