ESPRE Solutions Announces the Release of ESPRE LIVE Lightning Strike 3.0

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - ESPRE Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EPRT), a Dallas-based media solutions and technology company with a revolutionary and patented video compression technology, today reports that it has released the next generation of its ESPRE LIVE Lightning Strike (LSVX) codec with new features that boost performance to new highs.

ESPRE's new version 3.0 of the LSVX codec has significantly improved performance for encoding and video quality as measured by peak signal to noise ration (PSNR). The new LSVX also includes new features and enhancements for making video production faster and more reliable with decreased bandwidth for the end users. Highest quality for the least bandwidth has always been the accolade given to prior versions of the LSVX and this new version has made advancements in both factors. While the prior version of LSVX outperforms every other video codec in the market, the new features in the new version of the codec boost performance to new highs. The bases for these new features are patent-pending algorithms for video encoding and decoding. The new version of LSVX has been enhanced for coverage of high definition resolutions with the same superior Video Quality at reduced Bandwidth. These new capabilities in the codec integrate with end-to-end solution components of the ESPRE LIVE SDK to provide web applications with the ability to easily integrate high quality video functionality for web delivery as well as web based production. The APIs in the ESPRE LIVE SDK are based on JavaScript and Java resulting in ease of use by the millions of Java programmers worldwide.

Pete Ianace, ESPRE Solutions' CEO, comments, "The enhanced version of Lightning Strike codec is further proof of ESPRE's commitment to making the highest quality video available to as many users as possible. A number of our clients and prospects have asked us to address the growing market need to deliver HD video for both VOD and live broadcast. ESPRE will continue to address this market opportunity and meet the demand for an improved user experience as well as the need for a truly viable solution for live, high-quality multi-media video."
