BOXX Technologies and ProMAX Systems team up to deliver open architecture,

Austin, TX – December 20, 2005 - In a far-reaching agreement, ProMAX Systems, Inc.
(Irvine, California) and BOXX Technologies, Inc. (Austin, Texas) announced today
that they will jointly deliver a broad range of specialized media creation products
for film, video and broadcast professionals.

BOXX Technologies is a leading provider of workstations and render nodes for the VFX
and animation markets. BOXX’s strategy is to rapidly make new performance
technologies available to creative professionals to improve the efficiency of their
workflow. ProMAX Systems is a leading provider of turnkey DV, SD, and HD digital
video editing systems for the broadcast, post or production, corporate video,
academic and government markets. ProMAX delivers stability, performance and high
quality support in advanced integrated video systems.

The two make for a powerful combination. BOXX will complement its range of
specialized 3DBOXX™ workstations and RenderBOXX™ render nodes with ProMAX’s
extensive line of fully integrated video editing systems, and powerful SAN storage
systems.

ProMAX will power a range of turnkey video editing systems with purpose-built
workstations designed and manufactured by BOXX. Video editing professionals will see
an immediate benefit from acquiring ProMAX video editing solutions powered by BOXX
workstations that are certified and optimized to provide both performance and
reliability when running advanced video editing applications.

BOXX and ProMAX intend to engage in a broad range of joint marketing activities in
order to leverage each other’s market and customer expertise.

Both companies are committed to integrating the best technologies available to
empower digital creators to do their best work. Customers will have access to
greater specialized technical support resources that will cover all the major steps
of the creation process from shooting, computer graphics (CG) to compositing,
editing and authoring.

BOXX Technologies CEO Rick Krause describes his vision for this strategic
relationship with ProMAX: ”BOXX and ProMAX have perfectly complementary strategies
that can be combined to deliver real value to both customer communities.” ProMAX
CEO Dan Hatch adds: ”The timing is right to combine forces with BOXX and make a
significant impact in the increasingly democratized video space.”

“We are very excited for the new ProMax and BOXX relationship as it brings two
first class organizations focusing on the content creation marketplace. This new
relationship takes ProMax’s system integration expertise and pairs it with one of
the best PC solutions in the market. Solutions from Avid, our video division and
Softimage, our animation and effects division, will truly leverage the processing
power of BOXX and the integration expertise of ProMax.” Said Dave Fish, Director
of Intermediate and Educational Markets, Avid Technology.
