Ligos and SeaChange International Partner to
Co-develop New MPEG Transcoding Technology

San Francisco, CA – (April 3, 2003) Ligos Corporation today announced that it has co-developed a new MPEG transcoder with SeaChange International, a leading provider of digital video systems for television.

“We’re extremely pleased to be able to work with SeaChange to offer its customers greater flexibility for their MPEG-2 encoding requirements,” said Mark Koziol, President and CEO of Ligos Corporation. “Our partnership with a customer of the caliber of SeaChange is a further endorsement of the work we’ve been doing for years, and a confirmation that the time has come for an alternative to less flexible encoding solutions.”

The announcement follows Ligos’ recent introduction of MediaRig, a family of modular, multi-standard encoding and transcoding products that provide high performance and pristine quality in a variety of formats. MediaRig Core provides the underlying MediaRig software engine to broadcast and professional video system developers to meet application-specific encoding requirements, and to provide an alternative to the complexities, costs and boundaries associated with MPEG encoding hardware.

Broadcast and professional video system developers interested in previewing new products and technologies from Ligos are invited to visit at the NAB 2003 show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 5-10 2003, in the South Hall at Booth #SL1656.
