Multimedia Internet newspaper set to roll 9/9/98

Dynamic Imaging Systems says every one of its stories will be complete
audio/visual experiences

Deni Kasrel Staff Writer

Dynamic Imaging Systems Corp. (DIMG), a local producer of audio and video presentations for the Internet, is readying to unveil what it's billing as the first multimedia Web-based newspaper.

"Other Internet news sites may have some version of multimedia, but it's usually only for a couple stories whereas nearly all of our stories will be fully audio/visual," said Donna Murdoch, vice president of marketing for Dynamic Imaging.

The new site, set for a Sept. 9 launch, is called A/V DailyNews (http://www.avdailynews.com). It will aggregate news from assorted sources including the Associated Press, United Press International, Comtex, The Sports Network, CNBC and ITN World News. The news, in some
cases, will be presented live on the Net.

Plans call for the site's home page to feature top stories of the day alongside a menu of categories with stories and information about targeted topics such as technology, health, business, sports, entertainment and weather.

And while many news and portal sites have these same categories, Dynamic Imaging believes none will approach their subject matter in quite the same way as will A/V DailyNews.

As Dan Hunt, a vice president and director for Dynamic Imaging Systems explained, visitors to the site can peruse headlines and short synopses for stories that grab their interest. If they want to go deeper into a particular story, the user can click on the audio/video icon to get a multimedia version of the piece. "They'll hear a report and see photos and other illustrations that relate to what's being said. There may be charts and graphs. It's like a slide presentation. And some stories will have streaming video."

Hunt said presentation of stories will be relatively short and to the point. "They'll be about five or seven minutes. And we will only have about four or five main stories. As opposed to ABCnews.com, which has about a dozen choices to sift through. We're boiling it down so you don't have to wade through a lot of stuff to get a good idea of the day's most important news."

In the last few months, Dynamic Imaging, with headquarters in Philadelphia, has acquired two companies, in exchange for stock, that are now involved with A/VDailyNews.

In the latest deal, last month, it acquired Atlantic Broadcasting System Inc., a New York-based online audio provider of information and commentary on the U.S. stock market.

Drew Robertson, ABS president, thinks A/V DailyNews will have certain advantages over other new sources. Radio, he said "has no video dimension." TV conveys its stories via news readers. "They're reciting something that's been carefully scripted. Here, I can rip and read. I can tear something off the wire and say, 'This just in.' We can read the news as its happening."

In another deal, in early July, Dynamic Imaging acquired The Artichoke Group Inc., of Albuquerque, N.M., which specializes in digital media production. Its staff will now help with design, coding and other technology tasks associated with running the Web site.

Dynamic Imaging has made special arrangements with other parties that are involved with shaping the content of the site. For example, Murdoch said health-care professionals have been recruited to help develop news from their industry.

Weather content will be aided by the participation of Web camera owners. "They aim [the camera] out a window or go outside with it. People are into it. We didn't have to look very hard to set up a network around the country,'' said Murdoch, who added that the goal is to have Web cam weather coverage for major cities around the world.

Plans call for the entertainment section to have trailers and multimedia reviews of current movies. Also, the site will feature Chiquita, a Los Angeles-based radio personality, doing celebrity
interviews.

"I think if they are successful in doing all this, they'll literally change the way news is delivered over the Internet," raved Roland Perry, head of the Internet Stock Report, a firm that tracks publicly traded Internet-based companies.

"And it's not just the technology," he continued. "It's the method and how they will use it. This is the most extensive use of audio/video. A lot of people have the capability, but no one else is loading it on like they are."

Perry said more people are starting to rely the Internet to get the news. Indeed, according to several Web measurement services, the "big three" news providers on the Net -- USAToday.com, CNN.com and ABCnews.com -- are routinely in the lists of top 10 most visited sites.

To stir up interest in A/VDailyNews, Dynamic Imaging Systems is placing ads on several Web sites. These include USAToday.com. Travelocity, Big Charts, Mindspring, Alta Vista and Intellihealth.

Hunt said A/VDailyNews isn't soliciting ads for its own site just yet.

Real Broadcast Network Hosts A/V DailyNews, The Internet's First Fully Multi-Media Newspaper(TM)

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 9, 1998--A/V DailyNews, which is being billed as the first multi-media Web-based newspaper, and RealNetworks (Nasdaq: RNWK - news), the recognized leader in streaming media, announced that they have entered into an agreement whereby Real Broadcast Network will host the A/V DailyNews service.

Real Broadcast Network will additionally provide exposure for A/V DailyNews through Timecast(TM) and RealGuide(TM) by virtue of an agreement with Atlantic Broadcasting Systems.

''We are excited about our relationship with RealNetworks from two important standpoints,'' said Donna Murdoch, vice-president of A/V DailyNews. ''First, while other Internet news sites may have some version of multi-media, usually it's only a couple of stories, whereas nearly all of our stories will be fully audio/visual. As such we expect major spikes in traffic during newsworthy events which are national or international in scope.

''Working with RBN will enable us to simultaneously reach 50,000 viewers and daily audiences of 10 to 15 million.

''Secondly, the Timecast(TM) and RealGuide(TM) marketing services provided by RealNetworks are two extremely popular sites with Web surfers who are looking for sites which are enhanced by audio and video. As such, we should be able to reach tens of thousands of internet surfers looking for audio and video on the Internet that we may not have been able to reach via our own marketing efforts.''

In a recent article carried in the Philadelphia Business Journal, Dan Hunt, vice-president of A/V DailyNews stated, ''Now you can hear a report and see shots and other illustrations that relate to what's being said. There may be charts and graphs. It's like a slide presentation. And many stories will have streaming video.''

He added, ''Most of the stories will be relatively short and to the point. They'll typically be about five or seven minutes long. And we will only have about four or five main stories as opposed to having to sift through dozens and dozens of stories.''

A/V DailyNews was launched today. Visitors will can scan headlines and short stories of personal interest. Then, if they like, they can dig deeper into a particular story and open the audio or video version of the story. The site can be found at (http://www.avdailynews.com).

TSIG News release: Sells ALL CD's over internet for $10.99 a piece!
THE SITE IS FINALLY LIVE - Watch for UPWARD movement as marketing blitz begins.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
News Release:

Wednesday September 16, 10:44 am Eastern Time

Company Press Release

SOURCE: TeleServices International Group, Inc.

TeleServices International Group Inc. Launches Retail Music Company
Unique To the Internet

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleServices International Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin
Board: TSIG - news), a fully integrated provider of
outsourced teleservices, announced today that its subsidiary, Compact Connection, Inc.(CCI) has entered the
global online retail music market with a unique
marketing -- technology concept that directly links business done on the Internet with powerful one-on-one
personal transactions provided by TSIG. CCI will
compete directly with online retailers Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN - news), CDNow (Nasdaq: CDNW -
news), N2K's Music Boulevard (Nasdaq: NTKI -
news) and K-Tel International (Nasdaq: KTEL - news).

Compact Connection, a direct music retail company, sells CDs and cassettes online via its website
www.compactconnection.com at discount prices competitive
with other leading online music retailers. For those CCI customers not comfortable with giving credit card or
personal information online (estimated to be over 40%
of total Internet users), there is the immediate option of making a toll free call to 1-800-951-1111 to purchase
music from a TSIG Call Center Service agent, 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. CCI's website offers an impressive library of over 250,000 titles and has the
ability to handle 10,000 transactions a day. To support its
website program, TSIG has partnered with Muze, Inc., ENSO Audio Imaging, Inc. and Valley Media, Inc.,
leaders in their respective music fields.

Unique to the Internet is Compact Connection's marketing of its MusicCard(TM), which provides purchasers
the ability to buy CDs and cassettes at even greater
discounted prices. The CCI MusicCard(TM) is also being aggressively marketed outside its website through
CCI distributors and national sales. The company is
establishing unique marketing programs with corporations and non-profit organizations where they share in
revenues from selling their own customized
MusicCard(TM).

Robert Gordon, Chairman and CEO of TSIG, stated, ''Internet companies are too hastily turning to online
commerce as their sole business plan and are leaving
behind the personal one-on-one communication that the telephone offers. Global online music sales are
projected to rise to $1.8 Billion by 2001 from $71 million
currently. Likewise, the teleservices industry grew to an estimated $81 billion in 1996, up from $34 billion in
1986. The numbers speak for themselves.'' He further
comments, ''TSIG continues to be in the teleservices business. The launch of our Internet based direct music
retail company is just our first example of how these
two technology based industries must grow hand in hand. We are one of the first to recognize the importance of
it and are technologically prepared to keep pace
with demand in the new millennium, never loosing sight of the need for personal interaction.''

TeleServices International Group, Inc. is a provider of fully integrated global teleservices to companies focused
on selling products and services through toll-free
numbers and the Internet. The Company's wide array of teleservices includes telephone sales/order capturing,
customer service and product support as well as
direct-response advertising. Visit TeleServices web site at stockprofiles.com, or e-mail

It appears the FNTN & Siemens relationship is strong:

======================================================================

To: Tomato Man (6724 )
From: Wally
Friday, Sep 25 1998 4:00PM ET
Reply #6791 of 6802

Tomato & Gang (must read):
Recently, I posed these questions directly to Siemens.
Today, I received the following response:

Mr. Hayman,

I was the National Manager for Emerging Technologies in 1997 and
responsible for the sale and implementation of new multi-media services in North
America. I was fortunate enough the convince Financial Intranet (FNTN) that Siemens
was better prepared to provide a "total" solution, worldwide, then any of our
competition...

To answer your specific questions:

Q. 1.Financial Intranet publicly refers to Siemens as a "Strategic
Partner." Can you both confirm this claim and define the term as Siemens' understands
it?

A. Siemens-Nixdorf, Inc. OEC, the Siemens computer division's Multi-Media
development arm considers FNTN a Strategic Partner, as do I. FNTN is one of our
first Multi- Media customers in North America. My goal is to make FNTN a
Multi-Media showcase and a conduit for new emerging technologies and applications...
a goal shared by my European counterparts.


Q 2. Financial Intranet claims to be using proprietary technology
co-developed by Siemens and Financial Intranet. Is this accurate and can you elaborate
on the uniqueness of the technology?

A. I would rather use the term "Open Technology with proprietary
enhancements
". The FNTN platform uses, as a base, openly available hardware and
software technologies. This allows FNTN (and Siemens) to take advantage of the
"best-of-breed" products at the most cost effective prices. Proprietary enhancements
are then "layered" onto the open platforms, providing performance enhancements and
FNTN product uniqueness. When new releases of Hardware, Operating system and
application software are released, FNTN can easily upgrade. Siemens uses this
approach internally.

Q. 3. Since you are a supplier to Financial Intranet, I would like to
secure some form of recommendation from you concerning their company. I am not
looking for stock tips. I would like to know whether or not you would recommend them
based on business dealings - particularly in regard to integrity and reliability.

A. I am not quite sure how to answer your question. FNTN is a start-up company and
subject to all the risks that new companies face. However, FNTN is current on all
payments and has been a good customer. I have known Michael Sheppard for about
four years and have high regard for his personal integrity. I have never had
occasion/reason to think otherwise.

I hope this answers your questions,

Regards,
(Bob Grenier)
