'Changing the face of Communications'

March 28 2005

Ladies and Gentlemen

It seems like everyone is talking about video products these days. Our company, I-Stream/Vidrev has developed and produced a revolutionary new video-conferencing product with text messaging and we would like to introduce it to the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Attached to this letter you will find a full description of the service for your perusal. You may also examine the product at http://i-stream.biz

The deaf and hard of hearing will find the system a welcome addition to the tools they may use to communicate. The crisp video quality allows persons wishing to sign to do so without effort as the clarity of the video picture makes it easy to follow hand and finger movements. Lip reading is also possible due to the clearness of the video. A further enhancement is the ability to type text messages and have them immediately appear alongside the video screen. This allows persons who are not hard of hearing to communicate easily with those who are. It is an excellent tool to use when the system is used in high noise areas.

We would like to send you the hardware so that you could personally test this new, innovative system. If you will call us at (305) 612 4121 or email us at tpetrone@idstelcom.com, we will immediately forward to you, completely free of any charges, 2 Video Cameras and 2 headsets, as well as the necessary software and instructions which will allow you to test the system with another person of your choice.

We are sure that once you use the system you will want to know how it can be introduced to others. I-Stream/Vidrev is willing to discuss any ideas that you may have along these lines as well as licensing the product. We are sure that we can negotiate an attractive package for your organization.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Cordially
