(April 11, 2000)

Milpitas, CA - DISC Inc. (NASDAQ: DCSR), a leading manufacturer of automated library solutions for enterprise storage, announced today the company's first DVD-RAM storage solution: the DV Series. Combining fast write and transfer rates with high capacity ranging from 156 GBs to 1.6 TBs, the DV Series combines high-performance and reliability for a broad range of storage applications.

Incorporating from one to seventeen DVD-RAM drives, the DV Series libraries record data onto DVD-RAM media at 1.35 MBs per second and have a play back rate of 2.7 MBs per second for DVD media and 2.4 MBs per second (16x speed) for CD-ROM media. With a Mean Swap Between Failure (MSBF) of 2,500,000 cycles, the DV Series offers the reliability needed for critical recording environments such as video record-and-playback, security, back-up and storage.

"The DV Series was designed to meet today's growing storage requirements by offering users safe, secure and reliable storage for their important and sensitive data," said J. Richard Ellis, DISC President and CEO. "With compatibility across multiple operating systems, customers can expect seamless integration into a complete range of applications and environments."

Fully compliant with the DVD Forum standards, the DV Series can read from both DVD-RAM and DVD-ROM discs as well as from CD-ROM, CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW and video CDs. A single DVD can store approximately 1.3 million pages of text, 150 minutes of high-quality MPEG-2 video, more than 8 hours of AC3 audio or 5,200 full-color photos (640x480).

DISC's entire line of DVD-RAM storage libraries provide users with the highest possible performance and reliability. The DV Series features 100, 200, 400 and 600 disc capacity models and are expected to begin shipping April 2000.
