New Visual Announces Successful Review From Leading Telecommunications Company

New Visual's Innovative Technology, Embarq™, Set to Solve the 'Last-Mile' Problem

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2005 -- New Visual Corporation (OTC BB: NVEI), an emerging provider of semiconductors to the broadband telecommunications industry, provides an update to highlight the progress of its flagship technology, the Embarq™ family of transport processors. The Company is pleased with the progress and contemplates that it will enter the market in 2005.

"The offset QAM algorithm inside Embarq™ is absolutely at the leading edge of any transport processor in the world," states Krishna Yarlagadda, President of HelloSoft ( HelloSoft, which currently employs 130 people, has recently dedicated a team of experienced hardware, software and management engineers both in San Jose, California, and in its development center in Hyderabad, India, to the commercialization of Embarq™. This staff has completed its review of the hardware, software and competitive position and has concluded that the Embarq™ family of transport processors has unique features and benefits that set it apart from the competition that will allow it to offer very significant advantages to the world's telecommunications carriers.

The most significant advantage of the technology is the ability to reach farther and faster on a single pair of unshielded twisted pair copper with a higher data throughput than the announced VDSL, VDSL2, ADSL, ADSL2, and ADSL2+ products from New Visual's competitors. This is achieved because the underlying technologies that reside inside the Embarq™ processor are unique and very powerful. "These elegant and accurate OQAM processes, combined with a powerful data modulator and demodulator, yields performance results that are better than we have seen from any other company," stated Mr. Yarlagadda.

In November 2004, the Company completed the research phase of its product development and handed it off to HelloSoft, Inc. of San Jose for the development work required for the commercialization of the technology. HelloSoft is an investor in New Visual, and is compensated in part with New Visual stock that is issued under Rule 144.

"With confirmation like this, I am confident that we will close a contemplated major new investment, and thus lower the time to market for Embarq™," stated Brad Ketch, president and chief executive officer of New Visual Corporation.
