DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 4, 2003--Viseon, Inc. (OTCBB:VSNI - News), a global developer and provider of broadband personal video communications solutions, today announced that it has retained TVA Productions, a leading Los Angeles-based communications firm, to develop and launch an extensive multi-media campaign for the new VisiFone(TM). The media blitz is designed to generate over 22,000 placements for the VisiFone(TM) on TV, radio, print media, and airline in-flight programs.

The Viseon VisiFone is the world's first self-contained broadband videophone that does not require a PC or any external equipment. It provides free video and audio calls on any broadband connection and home or office network including high-speed Internet connections via DSL or cable modem. The patented VisiFone is H.323 compliant and delivers up to 30 frames per second video and crisp audio quality utilizing 128k to 512k of bandwidth. It is compatible with virtually all corporate video conferencing systems, but with a low retail price of $599, it can be used by more than 24 million broadband connected North American homes.

"While we continue to achieve successful VisiFone deployments in corporate applications, we believe that the VisiFone's greatest potential is for the rapidly growing number of broadband connected consumers" said John Harris, Viseon president and chief executive officer. "The launch of our consumer public relations campaign utilizing TVA will help make the 24 million North American broadband users aware of this compelling application for their DSL or cable modem connection."
