Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 Named Editor's Choice by EMedia Magazine
Digital Media Suite Continues its Sweep of Industry Awards
Santa Clara, California - (April 20, 2004) - Roxio®, a division of Sonic Solutions® (NASDAQ: SNIC), the leader in digital media software, today announced that Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 has been named Editor's Choice by EMedia magazine, the leading resource for in-depth information on digital studio products and technologies. This award adds to an already impressive list of accolades that the Digital Media Suite has received since launching less than two months ago. Easy Media Creator 7 has dominated the industry press with impressive wins in CNET, PC Magazine, and has earned exceptional reviews in numerous daily newspapers and consumer publications.
Easy Media Creator 7 represents the realization of Roxio's vision to deliver the first, fully-integrated digital media suite for the PC. While integration is a major competitive differentiator for Roxio's offering, it is also set apart by the fact that each component of Easy Media Creator is more feature-rich than stand-alone competitive applications. EMedia affirms this stating: "It's hard to argue with a suite jam-packed with top-notch apps for $99," and later concluding: "Roxio's got all-stars at positions the competition doesn't even fill."

"We are honored to be recognized by EMedia magazine, a respected authority on digital media software," said Tom Shea , President of
Roxio. "This is a solid endorsement and one that sends a clear message to consumers and OEM partners that Easy Media Creator 7 is the best
product in its class."
Easy Media Creator 7 is widely available at major North American resellers and direct from Roxio for a suggested retail price of $99.95.
Previous owners of Roxio software and select competitive products may be eligible for an in-box upgrade of $20 mail-in rebate.
