Fantom Drives Roll Out FireWire DVD Products

Fantom Drives Heralds Roll-Out of FireWire DVD Products
Fantom Drives Announces Availability of FireWire DVD-RAM and DVD-ROM Drives

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - May 25, 2000 - Fantom Drives today extended its
DVD offerings with the addition of FireWire(tm) DVD-RAM and DVD-ROM drives
to its growing FireWire(tm) product line. As the first company to bring
FireWire(tm)-based DVD-Disc Technology to market, Fantom Drives has again
reaffirmed its commitment to pioneering cutting-edge products and expanding
the reach of digital-convergence.

Since its debut as the new high-capacity data storage and
home-entertainment heavyweight, DVD has become an unbeatable standard for
large-scale delivery of data, as well as super-crisp video and audio. The
Fantom Drives FireWire(tm) DVD-ROM drive allows the home user to quickly
and painlessly add this exciting technology to their FireWire(tm)-equipped
Macintosh system, and can read DVD-ROM and DVD-Video formats, as well as
single-sided DVD-RAM discs and all standard pre-recorded and recordable CD
formats. Compatible with hardware and software DVD-decoder technology from
Apple Computer, and an upcoming upgrade to the Wired4DVD(tm) MPEG-2 decoder
kit, the Fantom Drives FireWire(tm) DVD-ROM drive is the perfect addition
to any DVD-ready Power-Macintosh computer.

Fantom Drives has also made DVD-RAM, the preferred archival medium for the
Video, Audio, Graphics, and Pre-Press industries, easier to use with the
introduction of the Fantom Drives FireWire(tm) DVD-RAM Drive. Based on the
popular GF-1000 DVD-RAM mechanism from Hitachi, this drive delivers a data
rate of 1.38MB/second and a data access time of 200ms, writing to both
2.6GB single-sided, and 5.2GB double-sided DVD-RAM media. The drive is also
capable of reading all 120-cm optical disc formats -- including DVD-ROM,
DVD-Video, and DVD-R, as well as all pre-recorded and recordable CD
formats. The included Radialogic formatting software, from industry leader
Prosoft Engineering, offers full media formatting and preparation features
such as partitioning, verification, and password protection.

"The need for high-capacity rewritable and removable storage is growing
along with the increasing popularity of such multimedia applications as
Desktop and Web Publishing, Photo Editing, and Video Production," said
Rezza Zaimi, General Manager of Fantom Drives. "It's not surprising that
these industries are also the leading adopters of FireWire(tm) technology,
and our FireWire(tm) DVD Products are ideally suited for use as creativity
tools in these markets!"

Fantom Drives FireWire(tm) DVD-ROM and DVD-RAM drives are available

FireWire(tm) was invented by Apple Computer in the early 1990s and was
adopted by the IEEE as a standard (IEEE 1394) in 1995 as a cross-platform
high-speed serial technology that can move large amounts of data between
computers and peripheral devices. It features simplified cabling, hot
swapping, and transfer speeds of up to 400 megabits per second.
FireWire(tm) is one of the fastest peripheral standards ever developed,
which makes it great for use with multimedia peripherals such as video
camcorders and other high-speed devices like the latest hard disk drives,
CD-recorders, scanners, and printers.
FireWire(tm) is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.
