IOXperts ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE OF FIREWIRE WEBCAM DRIVER FOR MAC OS X

CAMBRIDGE, MA, January 16, 2003 - IOXperts, Inc. announces the 1.0.6 release of its universal FireWire webcam driver supporting a wide array of low-cost cameras, including the ADS PYRO WebCam, Unibrain Fire-i, Orange Micro iBOT, iRez StealthFire, and more.

This latest version offers full compatibility with QuickTime 6.0.2 and 6.1 as well as peaceful coexistence with the Apple driver built into Jaguar.

Internal testing and feedback from customers confirm that the IOXperts driver delivers the clearest video and highest framerates available. IOXperts customer Frank D'Anna, for example, writes, "[Jaguar] appears to have its own built-in DCam driver but the picture quality is really poor and I'd like to put back the IOXperts driver."

The company soon expects to release an "industrial strength" DCam driver that will support the advanced features of high-end digital cameras used in factories and research labs in OS X.

Praise also comes from the makers of popular videoconferencing applications. Eric Drumbor of SquidSoft prefers the IOXperts driver. "Why? Our tests have shown that the IOXperts driver is faster, solid (no crashing), and is consistent with drivers from the MacOS Classic side (OS 9->OS X porting is a breeze)."

Bob Summers, CEO and president of nanoCom Corporation, says, "Our iSpQ VideoChat Mac users have relied on IOXperts drivers to give them excellent video on the latest Mac operating systems."
