Vancouver, British Columbia, July 14, 2003 - Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DSNY; Berlin: DME 935 410) is pleased to announce an agreement with Capita Technologies, Inc. to offer Clipstream™ as an exclusive method for embedding video advertising into customer web pages and emails.

Mr. Granville EVP of Capita says "Clipstream is an impressive communication solution offering a technologically superior product and a reduced cost. What you want is a really smooth and fast video, and you don't want the user to have to download anything. Clipstream delivers this.
Everyone loves real time motion pictures & video presentations versus having to read something. This is ideal for our clientele that desires movie trailers, advertisements, speeches from the President, web site marketing, and email campaigns."
Clipstream™ is uniquely suited for use in the advertising world. Because the consumer is not required to download or configure player software, it has audience reach of 93%. The content automatically streams at the appropriate bitrate for modem or broadband users. Because the content automatically caches, bandwidth costs can be 90% lower than other solutions at a much higher level of reliability.
Steve Vestergaard, Destiny CEO, comments, "I am extremely pleased to work with Capita Technologies as they have the market presence and experience to expose a number of Fortune 500 companies to instant play streaming. Clipstream™ is fast becoming the standard method for replacing static banner ads with rich video commercials."
