Deer Park, N.Y. Wednesday, June 17, 1998 - QuesTec Imaging, Inc. (QuesTec), (NASD-BB: QSTI), , and Live Motion Company (LMC) of Wiesbaden, Germany announce the first individual-sport contract forthe research, development and distribution of a virtual replay,broadcast enhancement system for the sport of tennis. This contract signing falls on the heels of a June 10,1998 announcement of a seven-year Strategic Alliance, Research and Development Agreement between QuesTec and LMC in which LMC has agreed to provide partial-funding for the research and development of future sports-imaging, broadcast enhancement products (like QuesTec's existing GolfProView TM and SuperVision SM pitch-tracking system for baseball), and to lend its vast live-television production experience and significant client/sponsor relationships for the successful distribution of any new products. "This new tennis application is being marketed for $ 25,000 U.S. per event, with projected revenues, following product release for licensing fees, royalty fees and product services to be about $2.1 million U.S. for the next three (3) years." Mike Russo, President.

Under the terms of the tennis contract LMC will invest over $100,000U.S for the purchase of hardware and as development funding, which includes an initial payment of $30,000 U.S and additional payments during each month of development-- with the balance due upon completion of the product. As stipulated in the June 10 Agreement,QuesTec will retain ownership rights to the new system and exclusive distribution rights throughout North America, the Caribbean and Bermuda, while LMC will retain exclusive distribution rights for Europe, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates. In addition, QuesTec and LMC will split any licensing fees and royalties evenly from third-party contracts obtained in non-exclusive territories.

The visual output of the new virtual replay system is scheduled to be unveiled to LMC' s list of clients and sponsors July 15-19 at the Davis Cup Tournament in Hamburg, Germany. In addition to the Davis Cup matches LMC handles tv-production for as many as fifteen tennis tournaments a year, which has included the ATP World Cup, the Compaq Grand Slam and Wimbledon.

Because of the speeds reached by the ball during tennis matches, innovative new technology has been developed for the tracking mechanism of the system which is due to be completed in the fourth quarter of 1998. When the system is complete QuesTec management plans to distribute the new product under its company name, while LMC Principals Felix Marggraff and Heiko Schweim will distribute the system under the name 101 Images.

QuesTec develops and markets proprietary software systems that capture, render, and display real-time graphic simulations that can be applied to sports entertainment, display media, business and industry.
