Vyew Releases New Subscription Services; Officially Emerges From Beta

Next-Generation Web Collaboration and Conferencing Service Gives Subscribers Unprecedented Ease-of-Use and Choice

BERKELEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- Vyew officially emerged out of BETA with the launch of its new 2.1 service, which adds a new subscription level to its 100% web-based collaboration and live conferencing platform. Vyew includes a suite of simple, yet powerful tools that empower users to create, collaborate, and communicate in real-time and over time.

Vyew will continue to be free without the nuisance of a limited trial period, but will now include light advertising. New subscription versions allow Ad-Free use of the service and give subscribers options to add more capacity and customize the experience. Subscription prices start as low as $6.95 per month, and several upgrade incentives are in place through March 31, 2007, including an offer for two months free for annual subscribers and low prices locked-in for life (see website for details).

Vyew is ideal for a wide range of users, from independent professionals to small businesses and workgroups.

"The web is increasingly becoming a participatory medium where users don't just consume content; they create it, interact with it, and build on it over time," said Henry Hon, CEO. "The web conferencing and collaboration market has been limited by cumbersome installation requirements and prohibitively high prices. Vyew removes both barriers while being incredibly easy to use."

All versions of Vyew allow unlimited sessions, and subscribers can choose the level of service that best fits their needs without paying extra for something they don't require. Vyew gives subscribers unique flexibility with Overflow Participants, an industry first, which allows extra real-time participant expansion for live conferences -- at no additional charge. Subscribers can also choose to set up a Custom Room ID for quick, easy-to-remember access to their sessions: For example, www.vyew.com/username.

Vyew is perfect for live conferences and for working on projects over time. Users can upload and organize content in 'VyewBooks' (saving by topic, audience, or version), and utilize a variety of authoring tools that work similarly to other applications such as PowerPoint. VyewBooks can be switched on demand, and can be left 'always-on' for others to review, comment on, or add to whenever is convenient.
