EARTHCAM LAUNCHES EARTHCAM MOBILE, ENABLING ACCESS TO LIVE WEBCASTING ON HANDHELD WIRELESS DEVICES
World Premier Transmission at Fall Internet World '99

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, New York, October 7, 1999 -- EarthCam (http://www.earthcam.com), experts in webcasting technology and the leading source of live webcams, has announced that on October 7, at the Fall Internet World 99 conference, (Jacob Javits Center, Room 1A05, 1:00 PM) EarthCam will demonstrate for the first time ever its technology that transmits live real-time images to be received on a handheld wireless device. The first ever image will be that of Jennifer Ringley (www.JenniCam.org), a woman recognized for living her life live on the Internet via webcam technology. The second images will be live traffic conditions made possible by a partnership with WNBC.

EarthCam has developed an application that enhances live images that are viewable on the Palm VII and other handheld wireless devices. The standard 150 x 150 pixel images can be tailored for individual preferences. Utilizing the Palm Query Application (PQA), EarthCam has created an expanding range of channel applications.

"EarthCam is proud and excited to be the first company to ever provide the public with a means to view live images of real-time traffic conditions; see that their children are safe; monitor homes, offices and factories; and to actually see the weather in other locations -- all while being away from the desktop," said Brian Cury, chief executive officer of EarthCam. "This breakthrough is so useful, and so practical, that will enhance our daily lives."

"This application was developed to simplify people's lives using wireless technology. Providing users with access to EarthCam's live webcam images such as, real-time traffic and images of one's own children from their daycare center, takes the wireless device category to a whole new level," said Bruce A. Schwartz, Vice President, Marketing of EarthCam.

EarthCam Mobile software is currently available via free download for the Palm VII and other wireless devices utilizing the PQA operating system at EarthCam's website (www.earthcam.com/mobile). EarthCam is expected to release software for use with wireless devices that are based on other platforms such as Windows CE, prior to the end of 4th quarter 1999.

EarthCam creates webcam solutions for the most recognized brands and sites in the world. These strategic partners include the top Internet portals: Yahoo!, Lycos and MSN. Additional webcam clients include Bristol Myers/Squibb, General Motors, Continental Airlines, New York Post, Intel, Seventh on Sixth Fashion Week, Columbia TriStar Television, CBS, FOX, Tony Awards, Goodwill Games, NASCAR and Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII for the NFL. EarthCam was recently named in Forbes Magazine's list of the top 250 Internet sites.
