Escenic and CCI Enter Partnership for Digital Publishing

OSLO, NORWAY--(Marketwire - June 7, 2007) - CCI Europe and Escenic have entered into a strategic OEM partnership under which CCI sells, delivers and supports Escenic's state-of-the-art web publishing technology as part of CCI NewsGate.

Answering the explosive growth of online in news companies and the need for ever richer and more sophisticated web sites and other online services, CCI Europe plans to dramatically expand the online capabilities of its CCI NewsGate system, including the option of a fully integrated online publishing engine from Escenic.

CCI Europe and Escenic have been partners for over five years, with many mutual customers and proven integrations between their respective systems.
