MediaStreet Inc. has used its award-winning photo inks and papers to produce
a magnificent photo exhibit to raise money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Produced with MediaStreet's Generations inks and enlarged to 30x40-inches
on their Royal Renaissance papers, the exhibit-quality prints were displayed
during the foundation's annual Gala fundraiser. The gallery prints were
auctioned individually to the highest bidders during a live auction. ? ?With
the help of MediaStreet's participation and other corporate sponsors,
Cystic Fibrosis was able to raise more than $130K for CF research.



"It is a wonderful feeling to know that our products and services were
used to raise funding for medical research," said Norm Levy, President
of MediaStreet. "The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is geared toward one thing
-- raising money for research to find a cure for CF. We were honored to
be asked for our help and thrilled to do whatever we could to help," Mr.
Levy added.



About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation?When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was
established in 1955, children with cystic fibrosis (CF) were not expected to
live long enough to attend elementary school. Thanks, in large part, to the
Foundation's aggressive investments in innovative research and comprehensive
care, the median survival age for people with this disease is now nearly 37
years.???After more than 50 years of service, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
remains committed to its core mission: to develop more therapies that will extend
and enhance the lives of those with cystic fibrosis and ultimately to find a
cure or control for CF.

X-Rite Inc. has introduced the the OPTIX XR2 display calibration and profiling
solution. Combining a state-of-the-art colorimeter with enriched software, the
OPTIX XR2 is said to deliver an unparalleled color management solution for displays;
including LCD, CRT and newly developed wide gamut technologies. Easy to use, the
OPTIX XR2 is X-Rite's most recent upgrade of MonacoOPTIX XR, which joined
X-Rite's product line after X-Rite acquired Monaco in 2003. This latest
iteration completes the integration of the product into the X-Rite family of color
measurement solutions.



The first and most fundamental step to ensure consistent and accurate color is
a properly calibrated monitor. The OPTIX XR2 allows users to adjust color at the
touch of a button. Plus, a new help system puts easy to find answers at the user's
fingertips.


OPTIX XR2 also has the ability to automatically recognize and take control of
your color display, with Automatic Display Control (ADC). Using one touch, ADC
will optimize your display's color temperature, contrast and brightness
settings to ensure you build the highest quality ICC profile and obtain the best
color results from your monitor.



In addition, an ambient diffuser attaches to the bottom of the OPTIX XR2 hardware,
allowing for more exact characterization of the user's environment, thus
improving the accuracy of profiles.



Designed to advance with users as they upgrade their display types, the OPTIX
XR2 builds the highest quality profile for today's as well as tomorrow's
advanced display technologies. Additionally, it recognizes when an upgrade is
necessary and prompts users to download the correct information required to properly
profile their monitor.



The OPTIX XR2 will be available to the market in late May, as will the OPTIX XR2PRO,
a network version for multi-workstation environments.
