("VRX") has signed a three year licensing agreement to provide 360-degree virtual hotel tours, still images, and interactive maps to Expedia, Inc. for its global points of sale, including Expedia(R) and VRX is delivering the content to Expedia under its new distribution program, Athena. Under the new VRX distribution program, Athena, Expedia will integrate a package of rich media content, as well as update existing hotel content. In addition, Expedia hotel partners that work with VRX now have the option to post their VRX content on Expedia, reaching Expedia's millions of visitors worldwide who will be able to access panoramic views and more of hotel rooms, grounds and amenities before they book.

"Athena's innovative approach to the online distribution of hotel content will simplify the way Expedia accesses multimedia hotel content," commented David MacLaren, Chief Executive Officer of VRX.
