Vividas technology enables streaming of 'Reality TV' series for casino and
internet gambling group

Vividas announces that its video streaming technology is enabling the internet
broadcast of a docusoap series of 10 x 10 minute programmes called Aspers Casino
World - showing life behind the scenes at Aspers Casino, the first Aspers in the
UK, which opens at The Gate in Newcastle this week. This is the first time
Vividas has been utilised to stream in full screen a docusoap series created
especially for the web.

Starting today, Aspers Casino World, sponsored by Aspinalls on line casino, can be viewed, without installing any special software, on The first of 10 weekly editions, 'Training Days', describes how
the Aspers Academy, which has recruited 60 young people with unpromising
prospects, goes about training them to be Newcastle's finest croupiers.

Damian Aspinall, Director of Aspers, said 'I've seen all the finished episodes
so far and it's been a real eye opener for me. It really gives a flavour of what
Aspers is about. It's fantastic that anyone around the world will be able to
view the docusoaps and see what's going on at Aspers '.

Vividas' Chief Executive, Geoffrey Hamilton-Jones, said 'The Vividas-powered
series represents a new and compelling on-line experience, combining two of the
principal applications for Vividas technology - marketing communications and
entertainment. This is the first time our streaming technology has been utilised
by an internet gambling group'.

Notes for Editors:

Vividas Group plc (VDS.L) is a developer and provider of video streaming
technology and related products, which enable straightforward playback on
personal computers of full screen, high quality video via discs or over
networks, including the Internet, normally without requiring software
installation. Vividas proprietary technology overcomes the disadvantages of
competing CD and streaming market solutions. These competing technologies
typically offer only partial screen, or poor quality full screen, viewing and
generally require the user either to have or to install specialist player
software. Based in London, Vividas also has offices in Australia and the USA.
