SealedMedia and Arbortext Offer DRM Publishing Solution

Digital rights management specialist and leading XML-based software
provider offer solution for digital content management

London, UK, 22 May, 2001 -- SealedMedia, a leading digital rights
management (DRM) company that enables publishers to securely package and
distribute all types of digital content on the Internet, and Arbortext,
the only global provider of XML-based software for single source
publishing to multiple media types, today announced they have entered
into a partnership to provide publishers with a solution to protect and
distribute digital content using XML technology.

Through Arbortext’s open, standards-based software, enterprises are able
to use a Single Source Publishing Architecture[TM] to capture content
from a variety of sources, store and manage that content in an XML
repository, and extract and assemble that content according to
individual needs for publishing to multiple media types: Web, print,
CD-ROM, e-Books and wireless devices.

“SealedMedia is the proven leader in offering content protection through
its web-centric DRM technology.  With the additional capability of our
XML-based Epic software, publishers can now easily build and control
digital content with the confidence that it will be available in a
media-neutral, presentation-neutral format for future publishing
requirements,” comments Nathan Birtle, Arbortext's Vice President of
Sales for Europe.

SealedMedia’s proven and widely deployed DRM technology allows content
owners to seal content in a variety of formats (HTML, PDF, image and
audio formats, etc.) and distribute it digitally to end users with
powerful and flexible license configurations in the knowledge that it
always remains protected.

“Arbortext continues to provide publishers with the latest XML
solutions, enabling them to keep ahead of competitors.  With the
additional SealedMedia functionality, they also have the confidence the
content they are distributing is protected,” said Owen Kilbane,
SealedMedia’s Director of Strategic Alliances.
