any, of the Escrow Account are released to Seller.  Any amounts
paid by either party pursuant to this section will include
interest thereon as provided in the Escrow Agreement, or if not
so provided, at the Agreed Rate, from the Closing Date.

obligations to perform have accrued; and no breach or default,

knowledge of Seller, any other party or obligor with respect
thereto), has occurred or as a result of this Agreement or its
performance will occur.  Except as set forth in Schedule 4.4(a),

correct and complete copy of each Lease, together with all

fully and satisfactorily completed and furnished in accordance
with the provisions of Lease, as the case may be.

performed all obligations required to be performed by it, and is
not in default in any material respect under any Contract
relating to any of the foregoing.  Seller has not received any
notice to the effect (or is otherwise aware) that the Intangible
Property or any use by Seller of any such property conflicts with
or infringes (or allegedly conflicts with or infringes) the
rights of any Person in respect of the Business.

          4.7  Authorization; No Conflicts.

          The execution, delivery and performance of this
Agreement and any related agreements by Seller has been duly and
validly authorized by the Board of Directors of Seller, by the
requisite majority of all the shareholders of Seller and by all
other necessary corporate action on the part of Seller.  This
Agreement and any related agreements constitute legally valid and
binding obligations of Seller, enforceable against Seller in
accordance with its terms except as such enforceability may be
limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and
other similar laws and equitable principles relating to or
limiting creditors rights generally.  The execution, delivery and
performance of this Agreement by Seller and the execution,
delivery and performance of any related agreements or
contemplated transactions by Seller will not violate, or
constitute a breach or default (whether upon lapse of time and/or
the occurrence of any act or event or otherwise) under, the
charter documents or by-laws of Seller or any Material Contract
of Seller, result in the imposition of any Encumbrance against
any assets or properties of Seller or any Affiliate or any of the
Purchased Assets or violate any Law.  Schedule 4.7 lists all

certain actions be taken by or with respect to a third party or
Governmental Entity, the execution and delivery of this Agreement
by Seller and the performance of this Agreement and any related

Permit by, any other third party or Governmental Entity.

          4.8  Legal Proceedings.

knowledge of Seller, threatened, against or affecting Seller or
any Affiliate or any of its properties or assets that

expected to have a material adverse effect on the Seller, the
Business, the Purchased Assets (or the use, operation or value
thereof), the Assumed Liabilities, Seller's ability to perform
this Agreement, or any aspect of the transactions contemplated by
this Agreement.  Schedule 4.8 lists each Order and each Action

knowledge of Seller, which otherwise has been threatened or is
reasonably expected to be threatened or initiated, against or

          Except as fully described in Schedule 4.15, no
Affiliate of Seller nor any officer, director or shareholder of
any thereof, nor any Associate of any such Person, has any
material interest in any of the Purchased Assets, the Assumed
Liabilities or any property used in or pertaining to the
Business; no such Person is indebted or otherwise obligated to
Seller; and Seller is not indebted or otherwise obligated to any
such Person, except for amounts due under normal arrangements
applicable to all employees generally as to salary or
reimbursement of ordinary business expenses not unusual in amount
or significance.  The consummation of the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement will not (either alone, or upon

any thereof to any Person.

          4.16 Intercompany Transactions.

liabilities or obligations to any Affiliate of Seller and none of
such Affiliates has any obligations to Seller.  The consummation

becoming due from Seller or the successor or assign of any
thereof to any Affiliate.

          4.17 No Brokers or Finders.

          No agent, broker, finder, or investment or commercial

entitled to any brokerage or finder's or similar fee or other
commission as a result of this Agreement or such transactions.

the Business, the Purchased Assets, the Excluded Assets, the
Assumed Liabilities, the Excluded Liabilities, this Agreement and
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is true and
complete in all material respects and does not contain any untrue
statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact
necessary to make any statement therein not misleading.  None of

promptly notify Buyer in writing of such fact and of the reasons
for such change.  All documents required to be filed by Seller or

quality free from any technical defects or any other flaws,
reasonable in balance, and salable (in the case of Inventory held
for sale) or currently usable (in the case of other Inventory) in
the ordinary course of business.  The value at which Inventories
are carried reflects the customary Inventory valuation policy of
Seller for stating Inventory, in accordance with GAAP
consistently applied.

          4.20 Receivables.

          (a)  All receivables of Seller, whether reflected on
the most recent balance sheet delivered to Buyer pursuant to
Section 4.3 or otherwise, represent sales actually made in the
ordinary course of business, and are current and fully
collectible net of any reserves shown on the balance sheet (which
reserves are adequate and were calculated on a basis consistent
with GAAP and past practices).  Seller has delivered to Buyer a
complete and accurate aging list of all receivables of Seller.

          (b)  No steps have been taken outside of the ordinary
course of business by Seller with respect to its accounts
receivable to cause monies which would otherwise have been

delay collection of monies due which would have been paid as a

Seller and any intended Affiliate transferee shall deliver to
Buyer an investment letter in form and substance substantially as
set forth in Exhibit G (the "Investment Letter").  Seller
acknowledges that the Image Shares will not be registered under
and therefore will be "restricted securities" under the
Securities Act.

          5.3  No Conflicts.

          The execution, delivery and performance of this

otherwise under (a) the charter documents or bylaws of Buyer, (b)
any Law to which Buyer is subject or (c) subject to any consents
of its lenders, any Contract to which Buyer is a party that is

          No agent, broker, finder or investment or commercial
banker, or other Person or firms engaged by or acting on behalf
of Buyer or its Affiliates in connection with the negotiation,

contemplated by this Agreement, is or will be entitled to any
broker's or finder's or similar fees or other commissions as a
result of this Agreement or such transactions except for Buyer's
engagement of MDB Capital Group LLC, as to which Seller shall
have no liability.

          5.5  Image Shares.

          As of August 7, 1998, the authorized capital stock of

                COVENANTS WITH RESPECT TO CONDUCT
                        PRIOR TO CLOSING

          6.1  Access.

          Seller will authorize and permit Buyer and its
representatives (which term shall be deemed to include its
independent accountants and counsel and representatives of
prospective financing institutions of Buyer) to have (to the
extent lawful) unlimited access during normal business hours,
upon reasonable notice and in such manner as will not
unreasonably interfere with the conduct of Seller's businesses,
to all of its properties, books, records, reports (including,
without limitation, all reports and documentation supporting the
Inventory as are customarily maintained by Seller), personnel and
health and safety files, operating instructions and procedures,
Tax Returns and all other information with respect to the
Business as Buyer may from time to time request, and to make
copies of such books, records and other documents and to discuss
its businesses with such third Persons, including, without
limitation, its directors, officers, employees, accountants,
counsel, licensors, manufacturers, customers and creditors, as
Buyer considers necessary or appropriate for the purposes of
familiarizing itself with the Business, the Purchased Assets or
the Assumed Liabilities, obtaining any necessary Approvals of or
Permits for the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and
conducting an evaluation of the organization of Seller and the
Business.

          6.2  Material Adverse Changes; Reports; Financial Statements.

          (a)  Seller will promptly notify Buyer of any event of
which Seller obtains knowledge which has had or might reasonably

any of the Purchased Assets or Assumed Liabilities or which if
known as of the date hereof would have been required to be
disclosed to Buyer.

          (b)  Seller will furnish to Buyer (i) as soon as

(except as disclosed therein), except that such financial

extent the content thereof would not materially differ from those
disclosures reported in the most recent audited period and year-
end adjustments to the extent not material.  Each of the
financial statements delivered pursuant to this Section 6.2(b)
shall be accompanied by a certificate of the chief financial
officer of Seller to the effect that such financial statements
present fairly the financial condition and changes in equity and
results of operations and cash flow of Seller for the periods
covered and reflect all adjustments (which consist only of normal
recurring adjustments not material in amount) necessary for a
fair presentation.

          6.3  Conduct of Business.

          Seller will not, without the prior consent in writing
of Buyer, in respect of the Business:

its terms, amend, terminate, renew or renegotiate any Material

Assumed Liabilities or Purchased Assets, before furnishing a copy
to Buyer and affording Buyer an opportunity to consult with
respect thereto; or

          (p)  make any Tax election, change any method or period
of accounting or change any significant accounting policy,
practice or procedure, or introduce any new method of management
or operation in respect of the Business; or

          (q)  fail to maintain or repair any Purchased Asset in
accordance with good and prudent maintenance and repair
procedures; or

          (r)  agree to or make any commitment to take any action
that is or would be prohibited by this Section 6.3.

          6.4  Notification of Certain Matters.

          Seller shall give prompt notice to Buyer, and Buyer
shall give prompt notice to Seller, of (i) the occurrence, or
failure to occur, of any event that would be likely to cause any
of its representations or warranties contained in this Agreement
to be untrue or inaccurate in any material respect at any time
from the date of this Agreement to the Closing Date and (ii) any
failure on its part to comply with or satisfy, in any material
respect, any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with
or satisfied by it under this Agreement.

          6.5  Permits and Approvals; Third Party Consents.

          (a)  Seller and Buyer each agree to cooperate and use
their best efforts to obtain (and will immediately prepare all
registrations, filings and applications, requests and notices
preliminary to obtaining all) Approvals and Permits that may be
necessary or that may be reasonably requested by Buyer to
consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

          (b)  To the extent that the Approval of a third party
with respect to any Contract is required in connection with the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement, Seller shall use its
best efforts to obtain such Approval prior to the Closing Date
and in the event that any such Approval is not obtained (but
without limitation on Buyer's rights under Section 8.2), Seller
shall cooperate with Buyer to ensure that Buyer obtains the
benefits of each such Contract and shall indemnify and hold
harmless Buyer for and against any and all Losses as a result,
directly or indirectly, of the failure to obtain any such
Approval.

          (c)  From the date of this Agreement to the Closing
Date, Seller agrees to include in each Contract entered into
subsequent to the date of this Agreement ("Subsequent Contract")
a provision permitting the assignment of any such Subsequent
Contract to Buyer and providing that upon such assignment, Buyer
shall succeed to all of Seller's rights, title and interests
thereunder subject only to Buyer's express assumption of all
Seller's duties, powers and obligations under such Subsequent
Contract.

          6.6  Preservation of Business Prior to Closing Date.

          During the period beginning on the date hereof and
ending on the Closing Date, (a) Seller will use its best efforts
to preserve the Business and to preserve the goodwill of
customers, licensors, manufacturers and others having business
relations with Seller and (b) Seller and Buyer will consult with
each other concerning, and Seller will cooperate to keep
available to Buyer, the services of the officers and employees of
Seller that Buyer may wish to retain.  Nothing in this Section
shall obligate Buyer after the Closing to retain or offer
employment to any officer or employee of Seller.

          6.7  Sales and Transfer Taxes.

          Seller shall pay all real and personal property
transfer taxes, if any, and all sales, use and other similar
taxes, if any, imposed on or in connection with the purchase,
sale or transfer of the Purchased Assets to, and the assumption
of the Assumed Liabilities by, Buyer pursuant to this Agreement
or on the use thereof by Buyer after the Closing Date.  In
accordance with the provisions of Sections 10.1, 10.3 and 10.4
hereof, Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Buyer from and
against any Losses related to the failure of Seller to pay when
due such transfer, sales, use and similar taxes.

          6.8  No Other Bids.

          Seller (either directly or indirectly) and its
Affiliates, representatives and agents shall not initiate,
solicit or encourage any inquiry, offer or proposal with respect
to, any acquisition, merger, tender or exchange offer or other
form of business combination, or any acquisition or disposition
of all or any substantial part of the assets or the stock or
other securities of Seller.  Seller will promptly notify Buyer of
the details of any discussions with or proposal or offer from any
other Person relating to an acquisition, merger, tender or
exchange offer or other form of business combination involving
Seller or any of its securities or substantial assets or any
other proposal, the acceptance of which would be inconsistent
with the consummation of this Agreement in accordance with its
terms.  Compliance with this Section shall not relieve Seller of
any other express or implied obligations under this Agreement or
under applicable Law.

          6.9  Certain Filings.

          Seller and Buyer shall furnish each other such
necessary information and reasonable assistance as the other may
request in connection with its preparation of necessary filings
or submissions under the provisions of such laws.  Seller and
Buyer will supply each other with copies of all correspondence,
filings or communications, including file memoranda evidencing
telephonic conferences, with representatives of any Governmental
Entity or member of its staff, with respect to the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement and any related or contemplated
transactions.

          6.10 Elimination of Intercompany and Affiliate Liabilities.

          Prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall cause to be
repaid by the appropriate borrowers any and all loans or other
extensions of credit made or guaranteed by Seller that relate to
the Business to or for the benefit of any Affiliate, Associate,
director, officer, shareholder, or employee of, or any of such
Persons' Affiliates or Associates.  Buyer shall not have any
continuing commitment, obligation or liability of any kind with
respect to the Persons referred to in the preceding sentence as a
result of this Agreement.  Seller agrees to indemnify Buyer for
any Losses of Buyer with respect to any such commitment,
obligation or liability not assumed by Buyer.  Seller further
represent and warrant that the transactions contemplated by this
Section will have no adverse effect on the Business.

          6.11 Repair of Damage; Condemnation.

          (a)  In the event that prior to the Closing there is
any "Non-Material" (as defined in subsection (c) hereof) damage
to the Purchased Assets, or any part thereof, at Buyer's option
either (i) Seller shall at its cost and in a good and workmanlike
manner repair or replace such damage prior to the Closing, or
(ii) Buyer shall accept such Purchased Assets in their then-
current condition, with an abatement or reduction in the Purchase
Price in the amount necessary to fully repair and restore such
damaged Purchased Assets, less (provided Buyer shall be entitled
to all such insurance proceeds) the amount of insurance proceeds
received by Buyer with respect to such damage, and Buyer and
Seller shall proceed with the Closing.

          (b)  In the event that prior to the Closing, any Non-
Material portion of the Purchased Assets is subject to a taking,
Buyer shall accept the Purchased Assets in their then-current
condition and proceed with the Closing, in which case Buyer shall
be entitled to an assignment of all of Seller's rights to any
award in connection with such taking.  In the event of any such
Non-Material taking, Seller shall not compromise, settle or
adjust any claims to such award without Buyer's prior written
consent.

          (c)  For the purpose of this Section 6.11, damage to
the Purchased Assets or a taking of a portion thereof shall be
deemed to be "Non-Material" if the reasonably estimated cost of
restoration or repair of such damage or the amount of the
condemnation award with respect of such taking shall not exceed
$150,000.

          (d)  Seller agrees to give Buyer prompt notice of any
taking, damage or destruction of the Purchased Assets.

          6.12 Financing.

          Buyer will use its best efforts to obtain financing for
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the
anticipated ongoing cash needs of the Business on terms
satisfactory to it in an amount not less than $5,800,000 in cash
in exchange for debt and/or equity securities of Image or Buyer
without the need for approval of the shareholders of Image (the
"Financing").  Seller will cooperate fully with Buyer in its
efforts to obtain the Financing and will cause personnel of
Seller to meet with and respond promptly to questions of Persons
proposing to provide the Financing and, upon request, to assist
Buyer by reviewing and commenting upon draft documents.  Seller
will also use its best efforts to provide or cause to be provided
any certificates, legal opinions and other documentation
reasonably requested by the Persons supplying the Financing.

                           ARTICLE VII
                 ADDITIONAL CONTINUING COVENANTS

          7.1  Non-competition.

          (a)  Restrictions on Competitive Activities.  Seller
agrees that, after the Closing, Buyer shall be entitled to the
goodwill and going concern value of the Business and to protect
and preserve the same to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Seller also acknowledges that its management contributions to the
Business have been uniquely valuable and involve proprietary
information that would be competitively unfair to make available
to any competitor of the Business.  For these and other reasons
and as an inducement to Buyer to enter into this Agreement,
Seller agrees that for a period of five years after the date
hereof such Seller will not, directly or indirectly, for its own
benefit or as agent for another, carry on or participate in the
ownership, management or control of, or the financing of, or be
employed by, or consult for or otherwise render services to, or
allow its name or reputation to be used in or by any other
present or future business enterprise that competes with Buyer,
in activities similar to the Business as of the Closing Date (i)
in the counties of Los Angeles, and Orange  in which the Seller
now operates and (ii) in the state of California.

          (b)  Restrictions on use of KC Marks in Competitive
Activities.  Seller agrees that Seller will not, directly or
indirectly, for its own benefit or as agent for another, use or
permit another Person to use the KC Marks in connection with the
sale or distribution of Optical Discs through any medium,
including retail stores, mail order or Internet sales.

          (c)  Exceptions.  Nothing contained herein shall limit
the right of Seller solely as an investor to hold and make
investments in securities of any corporation or limited
partnership that is registered on a national securities exchange
or admitted to trading privileges thereon or actively traded in a
generally recognized over-the-counter market, provided the
Seller's aggregate equity interest therein does not exceed 5% of
the outstanding shares or interests in such corporation or
partnership.

          (d)  Restrictions on Soliciting Employees.  In
addition, to protect Buyer against any efforts by Seller to cause
employees of the Business to terminate their employment, Seller
agrees that for a period of five years following the Closing
Date, Seller will not directly or indirectly (i) induce any
employee of the Business with a then current compensation of more
than $30,000 annually to leave Buyer or to accept any other
employment or position, or (ii) assist any other entity in hiring
any such employee.

          (e)  Special Remedies and Enforcement.  Seller
recognizes and agrees that a breach by Seller of any of the
covenants set forth in this Section 7.1 could cause irreparable
harm to Buyer, that Buyer's remedies at law in the event of such
breach would be inadequate, and that, accordingly, in the event
of such breach a restraining order or injunction or both may be
issued against Seller, in addition to any other rights and
remedies which are available to Buyer.  If this Section 7.1 is
more restrictive than permitted by the Laws of any jurisdiction
in which Buyer seeks enforcement hereof, this Section 7.1 shall
be limited to the extent required to permit enforcement under
such Laws.  In particular, the parties intend that the covenants
contained in the preceding portions of this Section 7.1 shall be
construed as a series of separate covenants, one for each
location specified.  Except for geographic coverage, each such
separate covenant shall be deemed identical in terms.  If, in any
judicial proceeding, a court shall refuse to enforce any of the
separate covenants deemed included in this paragraph, then such
unenforceable covenant shall be deemed eliminated from these
provisions for the purpose of those proceedings to the extent
necessary to permit the remaining separate covenants to be
enforced.

          (f)  Allocation.  For purposes of Section 2.3 above,
Buyer and Seller agree that $0 (zero) of the Purchase Price under
this Agreement shall be allocated to the covenants in this
Section 7.1.

          7.2  Nondisclosure of Proprietary Data.

          Neither Seller nor any of its representatives shall, at
any time, make use of, divulge or otherwise disclose, directly or
indirectly, any trade secret or other proprietary data
(including, but not limited to, any customer list, record or
financial information) concerning the Business or the business or
policies of Seller related to the Business that Seller or any
representative of Seller may have learned as an owner,
shareholder, employee, officer or director of the Business.  In
addition, neither Seller nor any of its representatives shall
make use of, divulge or otherwise disclose, directly or
indirectly, any confidential information concerning the Business
that may have been learned in any such capacity to persons other
than Buyer.

          7.3  Tax Cooperation.

          After the Closing, Seller shall, and shall cause its
Affiliates to, cooperate fully with Buyer in the preparation of
all Tax Returns and shall provide, or cause to be provided at
Seller's sole cost and expense, to Buyer any records and other
information requested by such parties in connection therewith as
well as access to, and the cooperation of, the Seller Accountant.
After the Closing, Seller shall, and shall cause its Affiliates
to, cooperate fully with Buyer in connection with any Tax
investigation, audit or other proceeding relating to the
Business.  Any information obtained pursuant to this Section 7.3
or pursuant to any other Section hereof providing for the sharing
of information or the review of any Tax Return or other schedule
relating to Taxes shall be subject to Section 11.9.

          7.4  Employment Matters.

          (a)  Non-Represented Employees.  At or before the
Closing Date, Buyer may, at its option, offer employment
conditioned upon the Closing to any employee of Seller employed
in the Business that is not represented by a collective
bargaining organization on such terms and conditions as may be
mutually agreed upon by Buyer and such employees.  Seller shall
use its best efforts to assist Buyer in hiring any such employees
with respect to whom Buyer elects to offer employment.  Seller
shall not take any action, directly or indirectly, to prevent or
discourage any such employee from being employed by Buyer as of
the Closing Date and shall not solicit, invite, induce or entice
any such employee to remain in the employ of Seller or otherwise
attempt to retain the services of any such employee, except with
the prior written consent of Buyer.  Seller agrees to consult
with Buyer on any significant oral or written communications or
meetings primarily regarding future employment with such
employees.

          (b)  Employee Benefits.  All obligations for
compensation, wages, bonuses, severance pay, vacation time, pay
in lieu of vacation, sickness and accident benefits, leaves of
absence, and similar employee benefits provided by Seller shall
be settled and paid by Seller through the Closing Date.

          (c)  Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification
(WARN).  Seller represents and warrants that it has complied with
any and all requirements under WARN.  In making this
representation, Seller may assume that Buyer will initially hire
or offer employment to the persons associated with the Business
listed on Schedule 7.4.

          (d)  No Third Party Beneficiaries.  Notwithstanding any
possible inferences to the contrary, neither Seller nor Buyer
intend for this Section 7.4 to create any rights or obligations
except as between Seller and Buyer, and no past, present or
future employees of Seller or Buyer shall be treated as third-
party beneficiaries of this Section 7.4.

          7.5  Post-Closing Collection of Other Purchased Assets.

          Seller covenants that, if it receives any payments with
regard to any Purchased Asset, after the Closing Date, it will
promptly pay to Buyer the amount actually collected, less any out-
of-pocket expenses associated with the collection.  Buyer
covenants that, if it receives any payment with regard to any
Excluded Asset after the Closing Date, it will promptly pay to
Seller the amount actually collected, less any out-of-pocket
expenses associated with the collection.  Seller agrees that any
rights in other assets of a type included in the Purchased
Assets, acquired by Seller after the Closing Date shall
constitute part of the Purchased Assets and shall be deemed to
have been automatically assigned to Buyer. In any event, neither
Seller nor anyone authorized by Seller subsequent to the Closing
Date shall exploit or attempt to exploit any such assets of a
type included in the Purchased Assets in any manner whatsoever.

          7.6  Exchange Right.

          If, within one year after the Closing, a subsidiary of
Image files a registration statement in connection with an
underwritten, SEC registered public offering (the "Spin-off
Offering") of its stock (the "Spin-off Subsidiary"), and the
assets of the Spin-off Subsidiary include all or substantially
all of the assets of the Business, Seller shall have the right,
subject to any applicable legal limits and conditioned upon the
completion of the Spin-off Offering, to exchange up to 129,185
Image Shares acquired by it as described in Section 2.3(a) for
shares of the Spin-off Subsidiary.  Upon such exchange, Seller
shall receive such number of shares of stock of the Spin-off
Subsidiary so that Seller's ownership percentage of the
outstanding shares of stock of the Spin-off Subsidiary shall
equal a ratio where the numerator shall be $1,000,000 and the
denominator shall be the value attributed to the entire Spin-off
Subsidiary based on the pricing of the Spin-off Offering.  Image
shall have no duty to undertake a Spin-off Offering and the
decision whether or not to pursue a Spin-off Offering shall be
made by Image in its sole discretion.

          7.7  Sharing of Assets.

          If assets used or intended for use  in the operation of
the Business are used by the other businesses and operations of
Seller, Buyer and Seller agree to enter into equitable
arrangements for the sharing of the costs and benefits of such
shared assets.  Each of the parties will use its best efforts to
reduce the need for dual use of such assets and in no event will
either party be required to provide the same to the other after
the six months following the Closing.

          7.8  Sharing of Services.

          Seller shall provide to Buyer, during the period of six
months following the Closing or such shorter period as Buyer may
elect, the administrative and support services listed on Schedule
7.8, that have been historically provided by Seller in the
ordinary course to the Business.  Seller shall be compensated by
Buyer for such services at Seller's cost plus allocated overhead.

          7.9  Restrictions on Image Shares.

          Seller will not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of
the Image Shares except in a registered offering or in accordance
with Rule 144 under the Securities Act or in privately negotiated
transactions exempt from federal and state securities laws
registration requirements.  The restrictions and procedures
applicable to any resale of Image shares by the Seller shall
include those set forth in the Investment Letter.

                          ARTICLE VIII
                     CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE

          8.1  General Conditions.

          The obligations of the parties to effect the Closing
shall be subject to the following conditions unless waived in
writing by all parties:

          (a)  No Orders; Legal Proceedings.  No Law or Order
shall have been enacted, entered, issued, promulgated or enforced
by any Governmental Entity, nor shall any Action have been
instituted and remain pending or, to the best knowledge of
Seller, have been threatened and remain so at what would
otherwise be the Closing Date, that prohibits or restricts or
would (if successful) prohibit or restrict the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement.  No Governmental Entity shall
have notified any party to this Agreement that consummation of
the transactions contemplated by this Agreement would constitute
a violation of any Laws of any jurisdiction or that it intends to
commence proceedings to restrain or prohibit such transactions or
force divestiture or rescission, unless such Governmental Entity
shall have withdrawn such notice and abandoned any such
proceedings prior to the scheduled Closing, unless nationally
recognized counsel known to have expertise as to such matters on
behalf of the party against whom such action or proceeding was or
would be instituted renders to the parties a favorable opinion
that such action or proceeding is or would be without merit.

          (b)  Approvals.  To the extent required by applicable
Law, all Permits and Approvals required to be obtained from any
Governmental Entity and any third party consents shall have been
received or obtained on or prior to the Closing Date without the
imposition of any burdens or conditions materially adverse to the
party or parties entitled to the benefit thereof.

          (c)  Escrow.  The Escrow Agreement shall have been
executed and delivered by all parties thereto.

          8.2  Conditions to Obligations of Buyer.

any time before the Closing as follows and in no other manner:

          (a)  Mutual Consent.  By mutual consent in writing of
Buyer and Seller.

          (b)  Conditions to Buyer's Performance Not Met.  By

Section 8.1 or 8.2.

          (c)  Conditions to Seller's Performance Not Met.  By

          (d)  Inaccurate Information.  By Buyer if any material
information (whether or not in writing) delivered by or on behalf

respect.

          (e)  Financing.  By Buyer or Seller if Buyer has not

been a material misrepresentation or material breach on the part
of Buyer (in the case of a termination by Seller) or Seller (in
the case of a termination by Buyer) in its representations,

if such breach or misrepresentation is susceptible to cure,
Seller or Buyer, as the case may be, shall have 10 business days
after receipt of notice from the other party of its intention to

judgment in the course of its ongoing business investigation of
Seller shall determine after reviewing information, projections
and assumptions developed by Seller and their representatives and
delivered to Buyer that such information, projections and

such projections are in a range in which it is probable that such
projections will be met.

          9.2  Effect of Termination.

          If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section

[Attorney's Fees] and 11.16 [Specific Performance] shall survive
any such termination.  A termination under Section 9.1 shall not
relieve any party of any liability for a breach of, or for any

performance if available) for any such breach or
misrepresentation.

claim or notice is given under Article X [Indemnification] with
respect to any representation or warranty prior to the applicable
expiration date, such representation or warranty shall continue
indefinitely until the applicable claim is finally resolved and
settled.

                         ARTICLE X
                      INDEMNIFICATION

          10.1 Obligations of Seller.

          Seller agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and
its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents and
assigns from and against any and all Losses of Buyer, directly or
indirectly, as a result of, or based upon or arising from:

          (a)  any inaccuracy in or breach or nonperformance of
any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements
made by Seller in or pursuant to this Agreement whether or not of
a material nature; or

          (b)  any other matter as to which Seller in other
provisions of this Agreement has agreed to indemnify Buyer; or

          (c)  any liability or obligation of Seller or any of
its Affiliates not expressly assumed by Buyer pursuant to Section
2.2(b) hereof or in excess of any amount set forth on Schedule
2.2(b) for the type of liability or obligation; or

          (d)  any third party claims in respect of the Business
(or regarding the conduct of the Business) prior to the Closing
that are asserted after the Closing, except as provided in
Section 2.2(b) hereof.

          10.2 Obligations of Buyer.

          Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Seller from
and against any Losses of Seller, directly or indirectly, as a
result of, or based upon or arising from any inaccuracy in or
breach or nonperformance of any of the representations,
warranties, covenants or agreements made by Buyer in or pursuant
to this Agreement.

          10.3 Certain Tax Matters.

          (a)  Seller's Tax Indemnity.  Seller agrees to
indemnify, defend and hold harmless Buyer against (i) any Tax
payable by or on behalf of Seller or any of its Affiliates, (ii)
any Tax liability arising out of the transfer of the Purchased
Assets, or assumption of the Assumed Liabilities, and (iii) with
respect to any Taxes payable by Buyer with respect to the
operation of the Business and the ownership of the Purchased
Assets (other than Buyer's income or franchise taxes)  for
periods commencing prior to and ending after the Closing Date
(whether or not assessed prior to the Closing Date), a pro-rata
share of such Taxes, calculated as if the period ended on the
Closing Date.

          (b)  Audit Matters.  Seller shall have the
responsibility for, at Seller's expense, the audit (and
disposition thereof) of any Tax Return relating to periods ending
on or prior to the Closing Date and shall have the right to
participate in the disposition of the audit of any Tax Return
relating to the periods ending after the Closing Date if and to
the extent that such audit or disposition thereof could give rise
to a claim for indemnification hereunder.  Buyer shall have the
right directly or through its designated representatives, to
review in advance and comment upon all submissions made in the
course of audits or appeals thereof to any Governmental Entity
relating to periods ending (or treated by this Agreement as
ending) on or prior to the Closing Date and to approve the
disposition of any audit adjustment with respect to such periods
if such disposition will or might reasonably be expected to
result in an increase in Taxes of Buyer for any period beginning
at or after the Closing.

          10.4 Procedure.

          (a)  Notice.  Any party seeking indemnification (an
"Indemnified Party") with respect to any Loss shall give notice
thereof to the party required to provide indemnity hereunder (the
"Indemnifying Party").  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no
Indemnified Party shall have any obligation to give any notice of
any asserted liability by a third party unless such assertion is
in writing, and (ii) the rights of any Indemnified Party to be
indemnified in respect of any Loss resulting from the asserted
liability shall not be adversely affected by the Indemnified
Party's failure to give or delay in giving notice unless (and
then only to the extent that) the Indemnifying Party is
materially prejudiced thereby.

          (b)  Defense.  If any claim, demand or liability is
asserted by any third party against any Indemnified Party, the
Indemnifying Party shall upon the written request of the
Indemnified Party, defend any action or proceeding brought
against the Indemnified Party in respect of matters embraced by
the indemnity, but the Indemnified Party shall have the right to
conduct and control the defense, compromise or settlement of any
Indemnifiable Claim if the Indemnified Party chooses to do so, on
behalf of and for the account and risk of the Indemnifying Party
who shall be bound by the result so obtained to the extent
provided herein.  If, after a request to defend any action or
proceeding, the Indemnifying Party neglects or refuses to defend
the Indemnified Party, a recovery against the latter suffered by
it in good faith, is conclusive in its favor against the
Indemnifying Party, provided however that, if the Indemnifying
Party has not received reasonable notice of the action or
proceeding against the Indemnified Party, or is not allowed to
control its defense, judgment against the Indemnified Party is
only presumptive evidence against the Indemnifying Party.  In
connection with the defense of any claim, each party shall make
available to the party controlling such defense, any books,
records or other documents within its control that are necessary
or appropriate for such defense.

          (c)  Insurance Matters.  The provisions of this Article
X are subject to the rights of any Indemnified Party's insurer
which may be defending any such claim.  If the Indemnifying Party
makes any payment hereunder of a Loss, the Indemnifying Party
shall be subrogated, to the extent of such payment, to the rights
of the Indemnified Party against any insurer or third party with
respect to such Loss.  Nothing in this Section 10.4 shall be
deemed to obligate any person to maintain any insurance or to
pursue any claim against any insurer or third party.

          10.5 Survival.

          This Article X shall survive any termination of this
Agreement and shall survive the Closing.

          10.6 Limitations on Indemnification.

          Seller shall not be required to indemnify Buyer, and
Buyer shall not be required to indemnify Seller, for a breach of
a representation, warranty or covenant until the aggregate amount
of all Losses for which indemnity would otherwise be payable by
such Indemnifying Party exceeds $250,000 (the "Basket").  If the
aggregate amount of all such Losses exceeds the Basket, the
Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the full amount of all
Losses including amounts under $250,000; provided, however, that
the Basket shall not apply to Losses of the type described in
Sections 10.1(c) and 10.1(d) (and no such Losses, to the extent
indemnified by Seller, shall be included in the Basket).  The
foregoing two sentences notwithstanding, the Purchase Price
adjustments described in Section 2.5 hereof shall be calculated
and effected without regard to the Basket or the limitations set
forth in this Section 10.6, but to the extent that any
adjustments are made pursuant to Section 2.5, no such amounts
shall be included in the Basket.  The indemnity obligations of
Seller and of Buyer, respectively, shall each be limited, in the
aggregate, to $5,000,000; provided, however, that if an
Indemnifying Party shall be found to have committed an
intentional misrepresentation, the limitations on indemnification
under this Section 10.6 shall be ignored.

          10.7 Notice by Seller.

          Seller agrees to notify Buyer of any liabilities,
claims or misrepresentations, breaches or other matters covered
by this Article X upon discovery or receipt of notice thereof
(other than from Buyer), whether before or after Closing.

          10.8 Not Exclusive Remedy.

          This Article X shall not be deemed to preclude or
otherwise limit in any way the exercise of any other rights or
pursuit of other remedies for the breach of this Agreement or
with respect to any misrepresentation.

          10.9 Offset.

          If any matter as to which Buyer may be able to assert a
claim hereunder is pending or unresolved at the time any payment
is due from Buyer to Seller or the Seller Shareholder (including
under the Escrow Agreement), Buyer shall have the right, in
addition to other rights and remedies (whether under this
Agreement or applicable Law), to withhold from such payment an
amount or value equal to the amount of the claim (provided it has
been or is then asserted in writing against Seller in accordance
with the provisions of this Article X) until such matters are
resolved.  If it is finally determined that such claims are
covered by this Article, the amount of such claims may be offset
against the retained payments and the remainder, if any, shall be
delivered to Seller pursuant to this Agreement together with
interest on such remainder payable from the date such remainder
was withheld until paid at the Agreed Rate.

                           ARTICLE XI
                             GENERAL

          11.1 Amendments; Waivers.

          This Agreement and any schedule or exhibit attached
hereto may be amended only by agreement in writing of all

party to be bound and then only to the specific purpose, extent
and instance so provided.

          11.2 Schedules; Exhibits; Integration.

the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and
understandings of the parties in connection therewith including,
but not limited to the letter of intent dated June 2, 1998.

          11.3 Best Efforts; Further Assurances.

          Each party will use its best efforts to cause all
conditions to its obligations to be timely satisfied and to
perform and fulfill all obligations on its part to be performed
and fulfilled under this Agreement, to the end that the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be effected in
accordance with its terms as soon as feasible.  The parties shall
cooperate with each other in such actions and in securing
requisite Approvals.  Each party shall execute and deliver both
before and after the Closing such further certificates,
agreements and other documents and take such other actions as may
be necessary or appropriate to consummate or implement the
transactions contemplated hereby or to evidence such events or
matters.

          11.4 Governing Law.

          This Agreement and the legal relations between the
parties shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the
laws of the State of California applicable to contracts made and
performed in such State and without regard to conflicts of law
doctrines except to the extent that certain matters are preempted
by federal law or are governed by the law of the jurisdiction of
incorporation of the respective parties.

          11.5 No Assignment.

          Neither this Agreement (nor related agreements pursuant
to this Agreement) nor any rights or obligations under any of
them are assignable except that Buyer may assign its rights
(including but not limited to its rights under Article X) to any
wholly-owned subsidiary of Image or to any post-Closing
purchaser(s) of all of the capital stock of Buyer or of
substantially all of the Purchased Assets.  Buyer shall remain
liable to Seller for the payment of the Purchase Price and other
obligations of Buyer hereunder notwithstanding a permitted
assignment.

          11.6 Headings.

          The descriptive headings of the articles, sections and
subsections of this Agreement are for convenience only and do not
constitute a part of this Agreement.

          11.7 Counterparts.

          This Agreement and any amendment hereto or any other
agreement (or document) delivered pursuant hereto may be executed
in one or more counterparts and by different parties in separate
counterparts.  All of such counterparts shall constitute one and
the same agreement (or other document) and shall become effective
(unless otherwise therein provided) when one or more counterparts
have been signed by each party and delivered to the other party.

          11.8 Publicity and Reports.

          Seller and Buyer shall jointly coordinate all publicity
relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and
no party shall issue any press release, publicity statement or
other public notice relating to this Agreement, or the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement, without the prior
written consent of the other party, other than as required by
securities laws.  Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Buyer
may issue a press release regarding this Agreement or the
transactions contemplated herein at any time if Buyer determines
in its reasonable discretion that it is prudent, or Buyer is
obligated, to do so in light of Buyer's status as a public
company.  Seller acknowledges that Buyer may issue a press
release upon the execution of this Agreement.  If either party is
required by law to (or Buyer concludes that it should) disclose
to any person any information regarding the parties'
negotiations, the parties will endeavor to mutually agree on the
content and timing of any such disclosure to the extent
practicable.

          11.9 Confidentiality.

          All information disclosed by any party (or its
representatives) whether before or after the date hereof, in
connection with the transactions contemplated by, or the
discussions and negotiations preceding, this Agreement to any
other party (or its representatives) or its shareholders shall be
kept confidential by such other party, its representatives and
shareholders and shall not be used by any such Persons other than
as contemplated by this Agreement, except to the extent that such
information (i) was known by the recipient when received, (ii) it
is or hereafter becomes lawfully obtainable from other sources,
(iii) is necessary or appropriate to disclose to a Governmental
Entity having jurisdiction over the parties, (iv) as may
otherwise be required by law or (v) to the extent such duty as to
confidentiality is waived in writing by the other party.  If this
Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms, each party
shall use all reasonable efforts to return upon written request
from the other party all documents (and reproductions thereof)
received by it or its representatives from such other party (and,
in the case of reproductions, all such reproductions made by the
receiving party) that include information not within the
exceptions contained in the first sentence of this Section 11.9,
unless the recipients provide assurances reasonably satisfactory
to the requesting party that such documents have been destroyed.

          This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the
benefit of each party, and nothing in this Agreement, express or
implied, is intended to confer upon any other person any rights

Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement is intended to relieve or

right of subrogation or action over against, any party to this
Agreement.

financial institutions or other Persons and assumed by Buyer, in
connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and
performance of this Agreement and any Financing referred to in
Section 6.12 ("Buyer's Expenses").

          (b)  If this Agreement is terminated (x) by Buyer
without the consent of Seller for any reason other than pursuant
to Section 9.1(b), 9.1(d), 9.1(f), 9.1(g) or 9.1(h) or (y) by
Seller pursuant to Section 9.1(c), 9.1(e) (unless Buyer's
inability to obtain Financing is primarily due to a
representation or warranty of Seller not being true and correct
in all material respects or Seller having not performed an
obligation under this Agreement) or 9.1(f), then Buyer will,
within five days after Seller's submission of a reasonably
detailed statement of their expenses, reimburse Seller for all
out-of pocket expenses and fees incurred by them or on their
behalf, or incurred by other persons and assumed by Seller, in
connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and
performance of this Agreement ("Seller's Expenses").

          (c)  If Seller fail to pay any of the Buyer's Expenses
when due, then Seller will also be obligated to pay to Buyer all
costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and
expenses) incurred by Buyer in connection with the collection
thereof plus interest on the amount of the Buyer's Expenses not
paid from the date such payment was required to be made, at the
Agreed Rate until paid.

          (d)  If Buyer fails to pay any of the Seller's Expenses
when due, then it will also be obligated to pay to Seller all
costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and
expenses) incurred by Seller in connection with the collection
thereof plus interest on the amount of the Seller's Expenses not
paid from the date such payment was required to be made, at the
Agreed Rate until paid.

          (e)  Except as otherwise provided in Sections 11.13 or
12.2, Seller and Buyer shall pay its own expenses incident to the
negotiation, preparation and performance of this Agreement and
the transactions contemplated hereby, including but not limited
to the fees, expenses and disbursements of its investment
bankers, accountants and counsel and of securing third party
consents and approvals required to be obtained by it.

          (f)  Seller shall pay any documentary transfer tax,
real property transfer or gains tax, document recording fees and
charges, any amounts due under Division 6 of the California
Commercial Codes or other bulk sales laws, and any income,
franchise or revenue tax or excise tax (and any surtax thereon)
due in connection with the consummation of the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement.

          11.14 Remedies; Waiver.

          To the extent permitted by Law, all rights and remedies
existing under this Agreement and any related agreements or
documents are cumulative to, and not exclusive of, any rights or
remedies otherwise available under applicable Law.  No failure on
the part of any party to exercise or delay in exercising any
right hereunder shall be deemed a waiver thereof, nor shall any
single or partial exercise preclude any further or other exercise
of such or any other right.

          11.15 Attorney's Fees.

          Attorneys fees and other expenses incurred in enforcing
any judgment in respect of this Agreement shall be recoverable as
a separate item.  The preceding sentence is intended to be
severable from the other provisions of this Agreement and to
survive any judgment and, to the maximum extent permitted by law,
shall not be deemed merged into any such judgment.

          11.16 Specific Performance.

          Seller and Buyer each acknowledge that, in view of the
uniqueness of the Business and the transactions contemplated by
this Agreement, Seller or Buyer, as the case may be, would not
have an adequate remedy at law for money damages in the event
that this Agreement has not been performed in accordance with its
terms.  Seller and Buyer therefore agree that Seller, on the one
hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, shall be entitled to specific
enforcement of the terms hereof in addition to any other remedy
to which it may be entitled, at law or in equity.

          11.17 Severability.

          If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be
invalid, illegal or unenforceable by any Governmental Entity, the
remaining provisions of this Agreement to the extent permitted by
Law shall remain in full force and effect provided that the
essential terms and conditions of this Agreement for all parties
remain valid, binding and enforceable and provided that the
economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated is
not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party.  In
the event of any such determination, the parties agree to
negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement to fulfill as
closely as possible the original intents and purposes hereof.  To
the extent permitted by Law, the parties hereby to the same
extent waive any provision of Law that renders any provision
hereof prohibited or unenforceable in any respect.

<PAGE>

                     ESCROW AGREEMENT

          THIS ESCROW AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is
entered into as of ___________, 1998, by and among Ken
Crane's Magnavox City, Inc., d/b/a Ken Crane's, a California
corporation ("Seller"), Image Newco, Inc., a California
corporation ("Buyer"), and ________________, a
_____________, as escrow agent ("Escrow Agent").

                       R E C I T A L S

          WHEREAS, pursuant to that certain Asset Purchase
Agreement, dated as of ____________, 1998 (the "Asset
Purchase Agreement"), by and between Seller and Buyer, Buyer
has agreed to purchase, acquire and accept from Seller, and
Seller has agreed to sell, convey, assign, transfer and
deliver to Buyer, certain assets of Seller on the terms
described in the Asset Purchase Agreement;

          WHEREAS, each of Seller and Buyer have made or
given certain agreements, covenants, representations,
warranties and indemnities in the Asset Purchase Agreement
and have agreed that a portion of the Purchase Price (as
defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) shall be placed and
maintained in an escrow account to be administered pursuant
to this Agreement and the Asset Purchase Agreement; and

          WHEREAS, the parties desire to arrange for such
escrow and to appoint Escrow Agent as escrow agent in
accordance with the terms hereof.

                      A G R E E M E N T

          In consideration of the mutual promises contained
herein and for other good and valuable consideration,
receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, and intending to be
legally bound, the parties agree as follows:

          1.   Interpretation and Definitions.  This
Agreement is being executed and delivered pursuant to
Section 2.3 of the Asset Purchase Agreement and is the
Escrow Agreement referred to therein.  The terms and
conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement are hereby
incorporated by reference into this Agreement, but only for
such purposes as the context of this Agreement may require.
The provisions of this Agreement shall not in any event be
construed so as to enlarge or diminish the rights of Seller
or Buyer under the Asset Purchase Agreement.  Capitalized
terms used and not defined herein shall have the meanings
given to them in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

          2.   Appointment of Escrow Agent.  Escrow Agent is
hereby appointed to act as escrow agent in accordance with
the terms hereof, and Escrow Agent hereby accepts such
appointment.  Escrow Agent shall have all the rights,
powers, duties and obligations provided herein.

          3.   Deposit of Funds.  On the Closing Date, Buyer
shall deliver $500,000 by wire transfer of immediately
available funds to Escrow Agent.  Escrow Agent shall deposit
such funds and hold such funds, and any accrued interest or
earnings thereon, in a form of interest-bearing escrow
account (the "Escrow Account").  The amount in the Escrow
Account at any time, including accrued interest and earnings
on such amount, is referred to herein as the "Escrow
Amount."

          Escrow Agent shall invest and reinvest the Escrow
Amount as directed in writing from time to time by Buyer and
Seller; provided, however, that if Buyer and Seller are
unable to reach an agreement as to the appropriate
investment for all or any portion of the Escrow Amount, the
Escrow Amount (or such portion thereof) shall be invested
and reinvested in negotiable certificates of deposit (having
a term not in excess of [90] days) in a commercial bank
having a combined capital and surplus of at least
$_____ million, representing at least ____% of its assets.
Escrow Agent shall (to the extent permitted by the terms of
the applicable investment) sell or redeem any such
investment as necessary to make any payments required
pursuant to this Agreement and shall not be responsible for
any losses or penalties incurred as a result of any such
sale or redemption.

          4.   Accrued Interest on the Escrow Amount.

          (a)  Interest and earnings accrued on the Escrow
Amount in the Escrow Account shall be added to the Escrow
Amount and shall be held by Escrow Agent and shall be
available for any payment to be made by Escrow Agent under
this Agreement.  Buyer and Seller acknowledge and agree that
for federal and state income tax purposes, the amount earned
on any investment of the Escrow Amount, or portion thereof,
is for the benefit of Seller and shall be received by Escrow
Agent as the nominee of Seller and that such amount shall be
the income of Seller for federal and state income tax
purposes.  Escrow Agent is directed to file all required
reports and returns with the appropriate taxing authorities
reflecting that the income earned on the Escrow Amount is
the income of Seller.  Seller shall provide to Escrow Agent
such information regarding Seller as may be necessary to
enable Escrow Agent to make any tax filings in connection
with this Agreement, including but not limited to their
taxpayer identification numbers.

          (b)  Notwithstanding subparagraph (a) above, if
any funds are paid to Buyer from the Escrow Amount pursuant
to Sections 5 and 6 hereof, Buyer shall also receive a pro
rata share of the interest and earnings that have accrued on
the Escrow Amount to the date of such payment.  The pro rata
share shall be determined by dividing the amount to be paid
to Buyer pursuant to Sections 5 and 6 by the Escrow Amount
at the time of such payment (excluding any interest and
earnings accrued thereon) and multiplying such number by the
total interest and earnings that have accrued on the Escrow
Amount (as it exists at the date of such payment) to the
date of such payment.

          5.   Duration of Escrow.

          (a)  Escrow Agent shall hold the Escrow Amount
(including without limitation the interest accrued on such
amount from the Closing Date) in escrow until the date (the
"Settlement Time") that is the later of (i) ninety (90) days
after the Closing Date, (ii) the date upon which all
deficiencies payable to Buyer pursuant to Section 2.5 of the
Asset Purchase Agreement (together with any amounts payable
under Section 4(b)) have been fully paid and (iii) if any
Disputed Claim (as defined in Section 9 below) arises during
such ninety day period, the date of the final resolution of
any and all such Disputed Claims under Section 10 hereof.

          (b)  Immediately after the Settlement Time, Escrow
Agent shall disburse any amounts owed on Disputed Claims to
Buyer (together with any amounts payable under Section 4(b))
and shall pay to itself any unpaid fees owed by Seller under
Section 15.  Escrow Agent shall then disburse the remaining
Escrow Amount in the Escrow Account to Seller and the escrow
shall terminate; provided, however, that if at any time
prior to the Settlement Time the Escrow Amount shall equal
zero, then the escrow shall terminate at such earlier time.

          6.   Purposes of Escrow Account.  As between Buyer
and Seller, the purpose of the Escrow Amount shall be, and
the Escrow Amount shall be applied to, (a) any payments
required to be made to Buyer pursuant to Section 2.5 of the
Asset Purchase Agreement, subject to the terms and
conditions set forth therein and (b) any payments required
to be made to Buyer pursuant to Article X of the Asset
Purchase Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions set
forth therein.

          7.   Escrow Amount Not Exclusive Remedy.  The
availability of the Escrow Amount for the payment of any
amounts due to Buyer under Section 2.5 and Article X of the
Asset Purchase Agreement shall not limit in any way or
restrict any other remedies available to Buyer under the
Asset Purchase Agreement or applicable law.

          8.   Assertion of Claim.

          (a)  At any time prior to the Settlement Time,
Buyer or its successors may assert (i) a claim (a "Claim")
for payment pursuant to Section 2.5 of the Asset Purchase
Agreement and/or (ii) a Claim for payment pursuant Article X
of the Asset Purchase Agreement, and, to the extent of the
Escrow Amount, may demand satisfaction thereof from the
Escrow Account.

          (b)  To assert any Claim, Buyer shall deliver a
written notice to Escrow Agent and Seller (a "Certificate of
Claim") stating the amount of the Claim in dollars and the
date the notice is being sent (the "Notice Date").

          9.   Settlement of Claim.  Escrow Agent, without
concerning itself with Buyer's explanation as to the basis
for the Claim, may disburse the Escrow Amount, or any
portion thereof, to Buyer to settle the Claim asserted by
Buyer:

                    (a)  Upon receipt by Escrow Agent of a
          written instruction executed by Seller and Buyer;
          or

                    (b)  In the case of a Claim for funds
          for payment pursuant to Section 2.5 of the Asset
          Purchase Agreement, upon receipt of a written
          resolution from the Referee (as defined in Section
          2.4 of the Asset Purchase Agreement); or

                    (c)  Fifteen (15) days after the Notice
          Date, provided that the following conditions have
          been satisfied:

                              (i)  Buyer has delivered to
               Escrow Agent and Seller a Certificate of
               Claim;

                              (ii) Buyer has delivered to
               Escrow Agent an affidavit of mailing or
               certification stating that Buyer has
               delivered or transmitted for delivery to
               Seller a Certificate of Claim with respect to
               such Claim at least ten (10) days in advance
               of the anticipated date of disbursement of
               the Escrow Amount or portion thereof; and

                              (iii)     Escrow Agent has not
               received from Seller a written objection to
               the disbursement (an "Objection").

          Any Objection by Seller shall include a statement
in reasonable detail of Seller's basis for such Objection,
and Seller shall deliver a copy of any Objection to Buyer.
If Seller delivers to Escrow Agent an Objection prior to the
satisfaction of such Claim from the Escrow Amount, the Claim
(a "Disputed Claim") shall remain pending until resolved as
provided herein, and Escrow Agent, without concerning itself
as to the grounds for the Objection, shall not disburse the
Escrow Amount or any portion thereof to satisfy the Disputed
Claim.  If, after receiving an Objection from Seller, Escrow
Agent receives (1) the written consent of Seller to the
disbursement by Escrow Agent of the amount of the Disputed
Claim, (2) a written agreement executed by Buyer and Seller
revising the amount of such Disputed Claim and instructing
Escrow Agent to disburse to Buyer such revised amount or
(3) a written notice from the arbitrator selected pursuant
to the provisions of Article XII of the Asset Purchase
Agreement stating that the Disputed Claim has been resolved
and stating the resolution of such Disputed Claim, then
Escrow Agent shall be authorized to and shall promptly
disburse the Escrow Amount, or portion thereof, in
accordance with such documents.

          10.  Resolution of Disputed Claim.  A Disputed
Claim that cannot be resolved by Buyer and Seller shall be
finally resolved by the arbitration procedures set forth in
Article XII of the Asset Purchase Agreement.  The arbitrator
appointed pursuant to such Article XII shall, upon resolving
or settling a Disputed Claim, deliver written notice of such
resolution or settlement to Escrow Agent, Seller and Buyer.
If the arbitrator's resolution or settlement concludes that
Buyer is entitled to receive any payment from the Escrow
Amount, the arbitrator shall deliver written instructions to
Escrow Agent to disburse to Buyer the amount of such payment
from the Escrow Amount.  Escrow Agent shall, after receiving
any such notice from the arbitrator, disburse such amount to
Buyer.

          11.  Recovery of Attorneys' Fees and Court Costs.
In the event of any Action (other than disputes fully
resolved by the Referee) arising out of the subject matter
of this Agreement, the prevailing party in such Action shall
be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys' fees and
other costs and expenses, including all amounts paid to or
on behalf of Escrow Agent, incurred in connection with such
Action.  If Buyer is entitled to reimbursement of such fees,
costs and expenses, it may recover them from the Escrow
Amount, but its rights to recover and remedies shall not be
limited to the Escrow Amount.  To recover such amount from
the Escrow Amount, Buyer shall deliver to Escrow Agent a
copy of the adjudication resulting from such Action in which
it was the prevailing party and a self-certified statement
of its fees, costs and expenses, and Escrow Agent shall be
authorized to disburse to Buyer the total amount thereof.
If Seller is entitled to reimbursement of such fees, costs
and expenses, Seller shall deliver to Buyer a self-certified
statement of its fees, costs and expenses and Buyer shall
promptly reimburse such amount to Seller.

          12.  Escrow Agent Qualifications.  Escrow Agent
shall at all times be a bank, savings and loan association
or trust company in good standing, organized and doing
business under the laws of the United States or a state of
the United States, having combined capital and surplus of
not less than $100 Million and shall be authorized under the
laws governing its organization to exercise corporate trust
powers and shall be authorized under such laws and the laws
of the State of California to enter into and perform this
Agreement.  If Escrow Agent shall at any time cease to have
the foregoing qualifications, Escrow Agent shall give notice
of resignation to Buyer and Seller as provided in
Section 16, and Seller and Buyer agree to thereupon promptly
appoint a qualified successor escrow agent in accordance
with Section 17.

          13.  Limitations on Liability of Escrow Agent.

          (a)  Escrow Agent may act upon any written notice,
certificate, instrument, request, waiver, consent, paper, or
other document that Escrow Agent in good faith reasonably
believes to be genuine and to have been made, sent, signed,
prescribed, or presented by the proper person or persons.
Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or
omitted by it in connection with the performance of its
duties and obligations hereunder, except for its own
negligence or willful misconduct.  Escrow Agent shall be
under no obligation to institute or defend any action, suit
or legal proceeding in connection with this escrow or this
Agreement unless it is indemnified to its satisfaction by
the party or parties who desire that it undertake such
action.

          (b)  Escrow Agent shall be under no obligation or
liability for failure to inform Buyer or Seller regarding
any transaction or facts within Escrow Agent's knowledge,
even though the same may concern the matters described
herein, provided they do not prevent or interfere with
Escrow Agent's compliance with this Agreement, nor shall
Escrow Agent be liable for the sufficiency, correctness or
genuineness as to form, manner of execution or validity of
any instrument deposited, nor as to identity, authority, or
rights of any person executing the same, except as above
provided.

          (c)  Should Escrow Agent during or after the term
of the escrow receive or become aware of any conflicting
demands or claims with respect to the Escrow Amount or the
rights of any of the parties hereto, or any money or
property deposited herein or affected hereby, Escrow Agent
shall have the right to discontinue any or all further acts
on its part until such conflict is resolved to its and the
parties' satisfaction, and Escrow Agent shall have the
further right to commence or defend any action or proceeding
for the determination of such conflict.  In the event Escrow
Agent should file suit in interpleader, it shall be fully
released and discharged from all further obligations under
this Agreement.

          (d)  Escrow Agent may consult with legal counsel
satisfactory to it in connection with any dispute, the
construction of any provision of this Agreement or the
duties and obligations of Escrow Agent under this Agreement.

          14.  Release of Escrow Agent.  The retention and
distribution of the Escrow Amount in accordance with the
terms and provisions of this Agreement shall fully and
completely release Escrow Agent from any obligations or
liabilities assumed under this Agreement with respect to the
Escrow Amount.

          15.  Compensation of Escrow Agent.  Escrow Agent
shall be entitled to reasonable compensation and
reimbursement of fees, costs and expenses, including
reasonable attorneys' fees, suffered or incurred by Escrow
Agent in connection with the performance of its duties and
obligations hereunder, including but not limited to, any
suit in interpleader brought by Escrow Agent.  Buyer, on the
one hand, and Seller, on the other hand, shall be severally
responsible for one-half of such compensation, fees, costs
and expenses.

          16.  Resignation and Removal of Escrow Agent.
Escrow Agent or any successor to it may resign and be
discharged of its duties and obligations hereunder by
delivering written notice to Buyer and Seller specifying the
effective date of such resignation, which date shall not be
earlier than 30 days following the receipt by Buyer and
Seller of the notice of resignation.  Such resignation shall
take effect on the date specified in the notice of
resignation, unless a successor escrow agent has been
appointed in accordance with the provisions of Section 17
and has accepted such appointment, in which case such
resignation shall take effect immediately upon receipt by
such successor escrow agent of the Escrow Amount.  Escrow
Agent may be removed by the joint action of Buyer and
Seller, with or without cause, at any time upon 15 days'
prior written notice to Escrow Agent, which notice may be
waived by Escrow Agent.

          Notwithstanding any resignation or removal of
Escrow Agent pursuant to this Section 16, Escrow Agent shall
continue to serve in its capacity as escrow agent until
(a) a successor escrow agent is appointed in accordance with
the provisions of Section 17 and has accepted such
appointment and (b) the Escrow Amount has been transferred
to and received by such successor escrow agent.  Buyer and
Seller shall promptly take the necessary action to appoint a
successor escrow agent in accordance with the provisions of
Section 17.

          17.  Appointment of Successor Escrow Agent.  If at
any time Escrow Agent shall resign, be removed or otherwise
become incapable of acting as escrow agent pursuant to this
Agreement, or if at any time a vacancy shall occur in the
office of escrow agent for any other cause, a successor
escrow agent that meets the qualifications set forth in
Section 12 shall be appointed by Buyer by a written
instrument delivered to the successor escrow agent.  If no
successor escrow agent has been appointed at the effective
date of resignation or removal of Escrow Agent or within 30
days after the time Escrow Agent became incapable of acting
or a vacancy occurred in the office of escrow agent, any
party hereto may petition a court of competent jurisdiction
for an appointment of a successor escrow agent and Escrow
Agent shall have the right to refuse to make any payments
from the Escrow Amount until a successor escrow agent is
appointed and has accepted such appointment.  Upon the
appointment and acceptance of any successor escrow agent
hereunder, Escrow Agent shall transfer the Escrow Amount to
its successor.  Upon receipt by the successor escrow agent
of the Escrow Amount, Escrow Agent shall be discharged from
any continuing duties or obligations under this Agreement,
but such discharge shall not relieve Escrow Agent from any
liability incurred prior to such event, and the successor
escrow agent shall be vested with all rights, powers, duties
and obligations of Escrow Agent under this Agreement.

          18.  Parties in Interest.  This Agreement shall be
binding upon and inure to the benefit of each party, and
nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended
to confer upon any other person any rights or remedies of
any nature whatsoever by, under or by reason of this
Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement is intended to relieve
or discharge the obligation of any third person to, or to
confer any right of subrogation or action over against, any
party to this Agreement.

          19.  Notices.  Any notice or other communication
hereunder must be given in writing and either (a) delivered
in person, (b) transmitted by telefax or other
telecommunications mechanism or (c) mailed, postage prepaid,

            LEASE ASSIGNMENT AND ASSUMPTION AGREEMENT

          THIS LEASE ASSIGNMENT AND ASSUMPTION AGREEMENT (this
"Assignment") is made as of the ______________________ day of
_____________, 1998, by and between Ken Crane's Magnavox City,
Inc., d/b/a Ken Crane's, a California corporation ("Assignor"),
and Image Newco, Inc., a California corporation ("Assignee").
Terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the
meanings assigned to them in that certain Asset Purchase
Agreement, dated ____________, 1998, between Assignor and
Assignee (the "Agreement").

                      W I T N E S S E T H :

          WHEREAS, pursuant to the Agreement, Assignor has agreed
to sell, convey, assign, transfer and deliver and Assignee has
agreed to purchase, acquire and accept certain assets described
in the Agreement including, without limitation, the interest of
Assignor under the Lease attached hereto as Exhibit 1 (the
"Lease");

          WHEREAS, prior to the transfer of the assets pursuant
to the Agreement (the "Closing"), certain consents must be
obtained and other requirements must be satisfied;

          WHEREAS, in order to expedite the consent of the lessor
to the transfer of the Lease by Assignor to Assignee, the parties
desire to execute this Agreement prior to the Closing but
effective only upon the Closing; and

          WHEREAS, Assignee has agreed under the Agreement to
assume and discharge under the Lease all obligations that first
arise after the Closing with respect to the Lease.

          NOW, THEREFORE, with reference to the foregoing
recitals which are incorporated herein by this reference and for
other valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of
which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as
follows:

          1.   Assignor does hereby SELL, CONVEY, ASSIGN, TRANSFER AND
DELIVER to Assignee all of its right, title and interest as
tenant under the Lease demising that certain real property
located in the City of Westminster, in the County of Orange and
the State of California, which real property is more particularly
described in Exhibit 1 attached hereto and by this reference
incorporated herein (the "Real Property").  The foregoing sale,
conveyance, assignment, transfer and delivery shall become
effective on the date of the Closing.  Nothing contained in this
Agreement shall be deemed to transfer to Assignee any right or
interest of Assignor in, to or under the Lease prior to the
Closing or, prior to the Closing, to otherwise constitute an
assignment, agreement or arrangement in contravention of, or
which would adversely affect the rights granted to Assignor or to
be assigned to Assignee under, the Lease.

          2.   Effective as of the date of the Closing, Assignee accepts
the foregoing assignment and assumes and agrees to perform and to
pay or discharge when due any and all obligations of the tenant
under the Lease arising from and after the Closing.

          3.   Assignor hereby agrees not to further sell, convey, assign,
transfer, deliver, mortgage, pledge or otherwise encumber all or
any portion of its interest in the Lease.  Any attempted further
sale, conveyance, assignment, transfer, delivery, mortgage,
pledge or other encumbrance, whether made voluntarily or
otherwise, shall be void and of no effect.

          4.   Assignor further agrees that until the Closing it will fully
perform and discharge, as and when due, any and all of its
obligations under the Lease (including, without limitation, any
and all payment obligations thereunder).  Assignor represents to
Assignee that Exhibit 1 constitutes a true and complete copy of
the Lease, including all amendments, modifications and
supplements thereto.  Assignor shall not hereafter amend, modify,
surrender, terminate or waive its rights under the Lease or
otherwise take any action or omit to take any action with respect
to the Lease which might adversely affect the rights of tenant
thereunder without the prior consent in writing of Assignee.

          5.   Assignor hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold
harmless Assignee from and against any and all Losses (as defined
in the Agreement) arising out of or resulting from (a) the filing
of any mechanic's, materialman's or other similar lien against
the Real Property or the estate of Assignor under the Lease, (b)
any breach or default by Assignor in the performance of any of
the Assignor's obligations under the Lease or (c) any negligence
of Assignor, or any of Assignor's agents, contractors, employees
or invitees (collectively, "Assignor's Agents") if any such Loss
accrued or resulted from any act or omission of Assignor or any
of Assignor's Agents occurring on or before the Closing.  The
provisions of Article X of the Agreement shall apply to claims
for indemnity hereunder.

          6.   The persons executing this Assignment and any Consent
attached hereto hereby represent and warrant that they are duly
authorized to execute and deliver this Agreement or such Consent
on behalf of Assignor, Assignee or such consenting party, as the
case may be.

          7.   If the Agreement is terminated, then this Assignment shall,
on the date of such termination, terminate and be of no force or
effect.

          8.   This Assignment and any Consent attached hereto may be
executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be
deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute
only one instrument.

          IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this
Lease Assignment and Assumption Agreement to be executed as of
the date first written above.

<PAGE>

                         INVESTMENT LETTER

          The undersigned, Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc., d/b/a
Ken Crane's, a California corporation ("Seller"), hereby
certifies to and agrees with Image Newco Inc., a California
corporation ("Buyer"), as follows, and makes the following
representations to Buyer, with the intent that Buyer rely thereon
to assure compliance with applicable securities laws.  This
certificate is being delivered pursuant to Section 4.25 of that
certain Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of  ___________, 1998,
by and between Buyer and Seller (the "Agreement").  Capitalized
terms used but not defined herein have the meanings set forth in
the Agreement.

          1.   Seller has been provided copies of, and has read
     and understood the Agreement, all exhibits and schedules
     attached thereto and all other agreements contemplated
     thereby to which Seller or any of its Affiliates is a party;
     that certain Confidential Private Placement Memorandum
     prepared by Buyer, dated _________, 1998; and all
     information concerning Buyer and/or Buyer's Common Stock
     that has been provided to Seller in writing in connection
     therewith.

          2.   Seller has such knowledge and experience in
     business and financial matters that Seller is capable of
     utilizing the information provided about Buyer to evaluate
     the risks and merits of the exchange of the Purchased Assets
     for Buyer's Common Stock and Seller's other rights and
     duties under the Agreement and hereunder.

          3.   Seller has adequate means of providing for
     Seller's current financial needs and possible contingencies
     and has no need in the foreseeable future to sell or pledge
     any securities issued by Buyer.

          4.   Seller is acquiring certain of Buyer's securities
     pursuant to the Agreement for Seller's own account for
     investment without a view to or for sale in connection with
     any distribution thereof, and will not sell or distribute
     any of such securities in violation hereof or of the
     Agreement or any other agreements contemplated thereby, the
     Securities Act, the General Rules and Regulations of the SEC
     promulgated thereunder, or any other applicable securities
     laws, including but not limited to those of the United
     States and the State of California.

          5.   Seller acknowledges and agrees that:

               (a)  Buyer's Common Stock must be held for a
          period of not less than one year, and neither such
          stock nor any interest therein may be sold, transferred
          or otherwise disposed of, unless any transfer thereof
          is then registered or qualified under the Securities
          Act and any other applicable state securities laws or
          Buyer has received a written opinion of counsel to
          Seller with expertise in securities laws, which opinion
          must be satisfactory (as to content and legal authority
          for the positions expressed therein) to counsel for
          Buyer, to the effect that an exemption from such
          registration and qualification is available with
          respect to such action;

               (b)  if such opinion relies on the exemption from
          registration in Section 4(1) or 4(2) of, or any rule
          interpretation derived therefrom under, the Securities
          Act (or any analogous exemptions under state securities
          laws) Seller shall obtain, to the extent required by
          such opinion or by Buyer, and deliver to Buyer a copy
          of the prospective transferee's:  (i) representations
          to Buyer, similar to those contained herein or
          otherwise customary in the circumstances as to the
          transferee's non-distributive intent, sophistication,
          understanding of (and ability to bear) risk, and access
          to information, (ii) acknowledgement concerning
          restrictions on transfer of Buyer's Common Stock and
          (iii) assumption of obligations of Seller hereunder;

               (c)  Buyer's registrar and transfer agent will
          maintain a stop transfer order against the registration
          or transfer of Buyer's Common Stock held by Seller to
          assure compliance with applicable securities laws; and

               (d)  the certificate(s) representing Buyer's
          Common Stock to be held by Seller will bear a legend in
          substantially the following form:

               THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
               HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED OR QUALIFIED UNDER ANY
               STATE OR FEDERAL LAW AND NEITHER THE SHARES NOR
               ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED
               WITHOUT COMPLYING WITH SUCH LAWS AND PROVIDING TO
               THE ISSUER A WRITTEN OPINION OF COUNSEL
               SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER THAT AN EXEMPTION FROM
               REGISTRATION OR QUALIFICATION UNDER APPLICABLE
               STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS IS THEN AVAILABLE.  THESE
               SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN OTHER
               RESTRICTIONS PURSUANT TO AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE
               ISSUER AND HOLDER, DATED AS OF __________, 1998.

          6.   Seller does not have in mind any sale of Buyer's
     Common Stock either currently or after the passage of a
     fixed or determinable period of time or upon the occurrence
     or nonoccurrence of any specific event or circumstance; has
     no present or contemplated agreement, undertaking,
     arrangement, obligation, indebtedness or commitment
     providing for, or which is likely to compel a disposition of
     Buyer's Common Stock or any interest therein, by pledge or
     otherwise; and is not aware of any circumstances presently
     in existence that are likely in the future to prompt such a
     transfer or other disposition thereof.

          7.   Seller agrees to indemnify Buyer and hold Buyer
     harmless from and against any Losses incurred on account of
     or arising out of any inaccuracy in Seller's declarations,
     representations, and covenants set forth herein, the
     disposition of any of Buyer's Common Stock that Seller will
     receive contrary to its foregoing declarations,
     representations, and covenants, and any action, suit or
     proceeding based upon the claim that Seller's declarations,
     representations, or covenants were inaccurate or misleading
     or otherwise cause for obtaining damages or redress from
     Buyer or the disposition of any of Buyer's Common Stock or
     any part thereof in violation hereof or of any securities
     laws.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

     We have acted as counsel for Ken Crane's Magnavox City,
Inc., d/b/a Ken Crane's ("Seller"), The Crane Family Trust (the
"Trust") and Ken Crane, Sr. ("Ken Crane") in connection with the
sale by Seller and the purchase by Image Newco, Inc. ("Buyer") of
substantially all of the assets of Seller's business of
distributing laserdiscs and digital video discs, pursuant to that
certain Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of ________ __, 1998,
between Buyer and Seller and each other agreement or instrument
contemplated thereby to which Seller, the Trust and/or Ken Crane
is a party (collectively, the "Agreement").  This opinion is
being delivered to you pursuant to Section 8.2 of the Agreement.
Capitalized terms used herein without definition have the same
meanings as set forth in the Agreement.

     In our capacity as such counsel, we have examined originals
or copies of the Agreement and such corporate records of Seller,
certificates of public officials and of officers of Seller, and
other documents as we have deemed necessary for the purpose of
this opinion.  We have assumed the genuineness of the signatures
(except for those of the officers of Seller executing the
Agreement), the authenticity of all items submitted to us as
originals, the conformity with originals of all items submitted
to us as copies and the due authority of all persons executing
the same.  As to material matters of fact, we have, when relevant
facts were not independently established, relied upon the
statements and certificates furnished to us.

     On the basis of such examination and our consideration of
such questions of law as we have deemed relevant in the
circumstances, we are of the opinion, subject to the assumptions
and limitations set forth herein, that:

          1.   Seller is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and
in good standing under the laws of the State of California with
all necessary corporate power and authority to carry on its
business as now being conducted and to execute, deliver and
perform the Agreement and any related agreements to which it is a
party.  Each of the Trust and Ken Crane has all necessary power
and authority to execute, deliver and perform any agreements to
which it is a party.

          2.   Neither the execution and delivery of the Agreement nor the
consummation of the transactions contemplated by it will violate
the provisions of, or constitute a breach or default, whether
upon lapse of time and/or the occurrence of any act or event or
otherwise, under the charter documents or bylaws of Seller or any
Material Contract known to us to which Seller is a party or is
bound, or result in the imposition of any Encumbrance against any
asset of Seller, or violate any Order or Law applicable to Seller
or any of its assets.

          3.   The Agreement has been duly and validly authorized by all
necessary corporate action on the part of Seller.  Each of the
Agreement and any related agreements has been duly executed and
delivered by Seller, the Trust and/or Ken Crane, as applicable,
and constitutes a legally valid and binding obligation of Seller,
the Trust and/or Ken Crane, as applicable, enforceable against
such party in accordance with its terms, except as limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar
laws affecting creditors' rights generally.  We advise you that
the enforceability of the Agreement is subject to the effect of
general principles of equity, including, without limitation,
concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair
dealing, and the possible unavailability of specific performance
or injunctive relief, regardless of whether considered in a
proceeding in equity or at law.

          4.   Except for those Permits and Approvals described on Schedule
4.7 to the Agreement, the consummation of the sale of the
Purchased Assets and Assumed Liabilities by Seller pursuant to
the Agreement does not require any order, consent, approval of,
or filing or registration with any other third party or
Governmental Entity.  All required proceedings and other action
to assure compliance with applicable bulk sales laws and asset
transfer laws have been duly taken.

          In rendering our opinion in Clause 2 with regard to
material agreements, we are relying on Seller's certifications as
to their material agreements attached hereto and with your
consent have confined our review to the indicated agreements.

          In rendering the opinions expressed in Clause 3, we
have assumed that the Agreement has been duly authorized,
executed and delivered by Buyer, that Buyer has the requisite
power and authority to execute, deliver and perform the
Agreement, that the Agreement constitutes the legal, valid and
binding obligation of Buyer, enforceable against it in accordance
with its terms (as so qualified), that Buyer has obtained all
necessary Approvals and Permits required to be obtained by Buyer
in order to consummate the transactions contemplated by the
Agreement, that all items submitted as originals are authentic
and that all items submitted as copies conform to the originals,
and we have not independently verified such assumptions.

          We express no opinion concerning the laws of any
jurisdiction other than California or the United States or choice
of law, securities or antitrust law matters.

          This opinion is solely for your benefit in connection
with your acquisition of the Purchased Assets and related
transaction and may not be relied upon by, nor may copies be
delivered to, any other Person, or used for any other purpose,
without our prior written consent.

                                   Respectfully submitted,

                                   Lanning, Adams & Peterson

     coverage under such medical and dental insurance policies
     for Executive's direct dependent beneficiaries (e.g., spouse

     Term of this Agreement to all rights and benefits for which
     he is otherwise eligible under any stock option plan which
     Image may provide for him or for senior officers of Image's

     benefits, practices, policies, and programs referenced in
     this Section 4, without notice to or recourse by Executive,
     so long as such action is taken generally in respect of
     senior officers similarly situated and does not single out
     Executive.

     There shall be deducted from all compensation payable to
Executive hereunder, such sums, including, without limitation,
social security, income tax withholding and disability and
unemployment insurance and other payroll taxes, as Image Newco is

     In consideration of the payments to be received hereunder,
Executive acknowledges and agrees as follows:

     (a)  During the Term of this Agreement, Executive will have
     access to and become acquainted with various Trade Secrets
     (as defined below) and other confidential and proprietary
     information of Image Newco and of Image, including entities
     in which either of them has or acquires an interest.  Except
     as Executive's duties may require or as Image may otherwise
     consent to in writing, Executive will not at any time either
     during or subsequent to the Term hereof, disclose or use to
     the detriment of Image Newco or Image or for the personal
     benefit of Executive, either directly or indirectly, any
     such information, knowledge, or data he receives in
     confidence or acquires from Image Newco or Image or which
     relates to the Trade Secrets of Image Newco or Image.  For
     purposes of this Agreement, Trade Secrets ("Trade Secrets")
     shall include, but not be limited to:

          (i)  Financial information, such as Image Newco's or
          Image's earnings, assets, debts, prices, pricing
          structure, volume of purchases or sales, or other

          (ii) Supply and service information, such as goods and
          services, supplier's names or addresses, terms of
          supply or service contracts, terms of particular
          transactions, or related information about potential
          suppliers, to the extent that such information is not
          generally known to the public and to the extent that
          the combination of suppliers or use of a particular
          supplier, though generally known or available, yields
          advantages to Image Newco or Image, the details of
          which are not generally known;

          (iii) Marketing information, such as details about
          ongoing or proposed marketing programs or agreements by
          or on behalf of Image Newco or Image, sales forecasts,
          results of marketing efforts, or information about
          impending transactions;

          (iv) Licensing or distribution information, such as
          details about ongoing or proposed negotiations or

          terms and details of such negotiations or agreements,
          results of licensing or distribution efforts, or
          information about impending transactions; and

          (v)  Customer information, such as any compilation of
          past, existing, or prospective customers, customers'
          proposals or agreements between customers, the status
          of customers' accounts or credit, or related
          information about actual or prospective customers.

          Trade Secrets shall not include information or
     materials (i) that become part of the public domain other
     than by reason of Executive's breach of this Agreement or
     negligence, (ii) to the extent required to be disclosed by
     court order or other legal process, or (iii) that are
     already known to Executive and generally a matter of public
     knowledge in the industry.

     (b)  All files, records, documents, data information and
     customer lists are special, valuable and unique assets of
     Image Newco and Image and are essential to their continued
     business success, and, under no circumstance during the Term
     hereof or any time during the five years subsequent thereto,
     will Executive disclose or use for any purpose, without the
     prior written consent of Image and Image Newco, any files,
     records, documents, data, information, customer lists, or
     any other proprietary information of Image Newco or Image.

     (c)  All inventions, designs, improvements, patents,
     trademarks, tradenames, copyrights, and discoveries
     conceived by Executive during the Term that are useful in or
     directly or indirectly related to the business of Image
     Newco or to any work-in-progress carried on by Image Newco,
     shall be the property of Image Newco.  Executive shall
     promptly and fully disclose to Image Newco all such
     inventions, designs, improvements, patents, trademarks,
     tradenames, copyrights, and discoveries (whether developed
     individually or with other persons), and shall take all
     steps necessary and reasonably required to assure Image
     Newco's ownership thereof, and to assist Image Newco in
     protecting or defending Image Newco's proprietary rights
     therein.

     (d)  Any violation of the terms of this Section 6 or of
     Section 7 shall constitute a material breach of this
     Agreement and shall cause Image Newco and Image immediate
     and irreparable harm and that the damages that Image Newco
     and/or Image shall suffer may be difficult or impossible to
     measure.  Therefore, upon any actual or impending violation
     of this Section 6 or of Section 7, Image Newco or Image, as
     the case may be, shall be entitled to the issuance of
     restraining order(s), preliminary injunction(s), and
     permanent injunction(s), without bond, restraining or
     enjoining such violation by Executive or any entity or
     person acting in concert with Executive.  Such remedy shall
     be additional to and not in limitation of any other remedy
     which may otherwise be available to Image Newco and/or
     Image.

7.   NON-COMPETITION COVENANTS

     (a)  Covered Activities.  Executive agrees that, until the
     later of the fifth anniversary of the date hereof or the

     for the purpose of soliciting or inducing any of such
     customers to acquire (or providing to any of such customers)

     or to divert or direct their business to Executive or any
     other person or entity by or with which Executive is
     employed, associated, affiliated or otherwise related (an
     "Executive Related Entity").

     (c)  No Raiding of Employees.  Executive agrees that during
     the Term hereof and for a period of one (1) year after the

     (e)  Investment Exception.  Notwithstanding anything in this
     Section 7 to the contrary, nothing in this Agreement shall

     securities exchange or traded in a nationally recognized
     over-the-counter market.

     (f)  Termination Exception.  Notwithstanding anything to the

     continue for the periods set forth herein and (ii) if this
     Agreement is terminated by Image Newco Without Cause (as
     defined in Section 11), the covenants in this Section 7
     shall continue for any period as to which Image Newco is
     obligated to make (and makes) payments required upon such
     termination, rather than for the period established herein.

8.   INDEMNIFICATION OF EXECUTIVE; INSURANCE

     Image Newco will, to the extent permitted by California law,

9.   DEATH

     In the event of Executive's death, this Agreement shall
terminate on the last day of the calendar month of Executive's

heirs or beneficiaries entitled by will or the laws of descent
and distribution shall be entitled to receive only:

     (a)  Base Salary continuation (i) for a period of twelve
     (12) months or (ii) until the expiration of the Term,
     whichever occurs first;

     (b)  a prorated portion of the Annual Bonus, if any,
     otherwise payable pursuant to Section 3(b), (i) for a period
     of twelve (12) months or (ii) any partial fiscal year that
     has occurred prior to the effective date of termination,
     whichever is greater; and

     (c)  dependent insurance continuation for (i) a period of
     twelve (12) months or (ii) until the expiration of the Term,
     whichever occurs first, or for any longer period required by
     COBRA.

10.  PERMANENT DISABILITY/SUSPENSION

     If Executive fails, because of physical or mental illness,
incapacity or injury ("disability") to perform Executive's usual
duties for a period of longer than 60 consecutive calendar days
or shorter periods aggregating 90 weekdays, Image Newco's
obligation to pay Base Salary and its other obligations hereunder
shall be suspended.  If the disability is reasonably determined
to be total and permanent by a physician selected by Image Newco
and acceptable to Executive (whose agreement shall not be
unreasonably withheld) or the suspension because of disability is
reasonably anticipated to exceed 180 consecutive days within a
360-day period, Image Newco may terminate this Agreement
effective upon 30 days prior written notice to Executive.  In
such event, Executive shall be entitled to receive:

     (a)  Base Salary reinstatement from the date of suspension
     (i) until six (6) months after the date of termination or
     (ii) until the expiration of the Term, whichever occurs
     first;

     (b)  a prorated portion of the Annual Bonus, if any,
     otherwise payable pursuant to Section 3(b) for (i) a period
     of six (6) months or (ii) any partial fiscal year that has
     occurred prior to the effective date of termination,
     whichever is greater; and

     (c)  Insurance continuation for (i) a period of six (6)
     months after the date of termination or (ii) until the
     expiration of the Term, whichever occurs first.

     Disagreement as to the severity, characterization or
anticipated duration of a disability or suspension and/or the
date the disability/suspension commenced shall be settled by the
majority decision of three neutral arbitrators (or licensed
physicians, if the parties so agree) - one to be selected by each
party to the dispute, the two so appointed to choose the third,
and the three so appointed to constitute the board of
arbitration.  Such board, acting by majority vote within thirty
(30) days after choosing the third arbitrator, shall resolve such
disagreement, and their decision shall be final and binding on
Executive, Image Newco, and any other person with an interest in
the matter.

11.  TERMINATION

     This Agreement may be terminated by Image Newco either for
Cause (as defined below) or Without Cause (as defined below) at
any time, pursuant to the provisions of this Section 11,
effective upon delivery by Image Newco of written notice to
Executive.

     (a)  Cause.  Image Newco may terminate this Agreement for
     Cause, as provided below.  In such event, all of Image
     Newco's obligations hereunder shall terminate without
     further liability.  Moreover, Executive shall not be
     entitled to receive any severance, fringe benefits,
     compensation or other rights hereunder, nor shall Executive
     be entitled to receive any Bonus Compensation otherwise
     payable pursuant to Section 3(b) or Section 3(c).  For
     purposes of this Agreement, "Cause" shall include, but is
     not limited to, Executive's: (i) fraud, dishonesty or breach
     of fiduciary duty, (ii) willful misconduct or negligence in
     the performance of Executive's duties hereunder, (iii)
     willful or negligent violation (including conduct in respect
     of Executive's supervisory responsibilities) of any law,
     rule or regulation, (iv) conviction of a felony or
     misdemeanor (other than minor traffic violations or similar
     offenses), (v) breach of any material provision of this
     Agreement or any other material agreement between Executive
     and Image Newco or Image which is entered into by Executive
     on, prior to or after the date hereof or (vi) any material
     breach by Seller of the Asset Purchase Agreement.

     (b)  "Without Cause."  Notwithstanding anything contained in
     this Agreement to the contrary, in the event this Agreement
     is terminated by the Company prior to expiration of the Term
     for any reason other than pursuant to Sections 9, 10 or
     11(a), this Agreement shall be deemed to have been
     terminated "Without Cause" ("Without Cause"), Executive
     shall be entitled to receive (except as provided in the next
     sentence), as and when otherwise payable under this
     Agreement, the Base Salary and other remaining compensation,
     rights and benefits described in Sections 3 and 4 through
     the expiration of the Term (including any extension(s)
     thereof pursuant to this Agreement), as if this Agreement
     were in full force and effect.  If Image Newco terminates
     this Agreement Without Cause, the Annual Bonus, as set forth
     in Section 3(b), if any, shall be payable only for the
     fiscal year in which the termination occurs and such Annual
     Bonus shall be payable as and when otherwise payable under
     Section 3(b).

12.  GENERAL PROVISIONS

     (a)  Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement is binding upon
     and shall inure to the benefit of Image Newco and any
     successors in interest (including any successor by merger or
     person acquiring substantially all of its assets as an
     entirety ("Asset Sale")).  The parties hereto agree that
     Executive's services are personal to Executive and may not
     be delegated.  Executive shall have no right to sell,
     transfer or assign this Agreement or any rights or benefits
     hereunder in any manner whatsoever, except by will or laws
     of descent and distribution.  Upon any merger of Image Newco
     or Asset Sale or change in control of Image Newco, the
     surviving entity or successor to the business of Image
     Newco, if any, shall expressly assume its obligations
     hereunder.

     (b)  Amendment.  This Agreement shall not be modified,
     amended or altered except by an instrument in writing
     executed by the parties hereto.

     (c)  Severability.  In the event that one or more of the
     provisions contained in this Agreement (or any portion of
     any such provision) shall for any reason be held invalid,
     illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity,
     illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other
     provision of this Agreement (or any portion of any such
     provision), but this Agreement shall be construed as if such
     invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision (or portion
     thereof) had never been contained herein.  It is the desire
     and intent of the parties hereto that the provisions of this
     Agreement shall be enforced to the fullest extent
     permissible under the laws and public policies applied in
     each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.  If any
     particular provision or portion of this Agreement shall be
     adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable, such
     adjudication shall apply only with respect to the operation
     of this Agreement in the particular jurisdiction in which
     such adjudication is made.

     (d)  Waiver.  The failure by either party, at any time, to
     require performance by the other of any of the provisions
     hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of any kind nor shall it
     in any way affect such party's rights thereafter to enforce
     the same.

     (e)  Notices.  All notices, requests, demands and other
     communications provided for by this Agreement shall be in
     writing and shall be deemed to have been given 24 hours

     which notice shall be given, provided, however, that any
     such notice of change of address shall be effective only
     upon receipt or rejection thereof.

     (f)  Good Faith.  The parties hereto shall perform, fulfill
     and discharge their duties and obligations hereunder in a
     reasonable matter in good faith.

     (g)  Governing Law.  This Agreement and all rights,
     obligations and liabilities arising hereunder shall be
     construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the
     State of California without regard to conflicts of law
     doctrines, except to the extent that certain matters are
     preempted by federal law.

     (h)  Attorneys' Fees.  In the event it becomes necessary to
     commence any proceeding or action to enforce the provisions
     of this Agreement, the court before whom the same shall be
     tried may award the prevailing party all costs and expenses
     thereof, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys'
     fees, the usual, customary and lawfully recoverable court
     costs, and all other expenses in connection therewith.

     (i)  Advice of Counsel.  The parties represent and warrant
     that in executing this Agreement, they have each had the
     opportunity to obtain independent financial, legal, tax and
     other appropriate advice, and are not relying upon any other
     party (or the attorneys or other agents of such other party)
     for any advice.

     (j)  Subject Headings and Defined Terms.  Subject headings
     and choice of defined terms are included for convenience
     only and shall not be deemed part of this Agreement.

     (k)  Cumulative Rights and Remedies.  The rights and
     remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative;
     resort to one right or remedy shall not preclude resort to
     another or to any other right or remedy provided for by law
     or in equity.

     (l)  Unique Services; Specific Performance.  The parties
     hereto agree that the services to be rendered by Executive
     pursuant to this Agreement, the rights and privileges
     granted to Image Newco pursuant to this Agreement and the
     rights and privileges granted to Executive by virtue of his
     position are all of a special, unique, extraordinary and
     intellectual character, which gives each of them a peculiar
     value, the loss of which cannot be reasonably or adequately
     compensated in damages in any action at law, and that a
     breach by Executive of any of the terms of this Agreement
     will cause Image Newco severe and irreparable injury and
     damage.  Executive hereby expressly agrees that Image Newco
     shall be entitled to the remedies of injunction, specific
     performance and other equitable relief to prevent a breach
     of this Agreement by Executive.  This Section 12(l) shall
     not be construed as a waiver of any other rights or remedies
     which Image Newco may have for damages or otherwise.

     (m)  No Restrictions on Corporate Authority.  The provisions
     of Section 3 and 9 through 11 shall not be deemed to
     restrict in any way any rights of the shareholder(s) or the
     Board of Image Newco, acting in good faith, during the Term
     of this Agreement to dissolve, reorganize (by merger, Asset
     Sale, recapitalization, or otherwise) or take any other
     action or make any other change (fundamental or otherwise)
     affecting the structure, existence, organization, operations
     or business of Image Newco, including but not limited to any
     material acquisition; provided that, in the case of any
     reorganization, any successor to its business by
     reorganization assumes Image Newco's obligations hereunder
     or such obligations are then guaranteed by Image.

     (n)  Section 162(m) Deferral.  If at the time an Annual
     Bonus would be payable hereunder Executive is a person whose
     compensation is subject to limitations on deductibility
     under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code and the
     Annual Bonus would not qualify as performance based
     compensation thereunder, then (to the extent that the
     payment would cause Executive's compensation to be non-
     deductible to Image Newco) the date of payment of the Annual
     Bonus shall be deferred at the election of Image Newco until
     the earliest time at which such compensation can be paid and
     deducted by Image Newco and/or Image for federal income tax
     purposes, but in no event later than the 76th day after the
     fiscal year following the fiscal year in which a termination
     of service occurs.

     (o)  Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the
     entire understanding and agreement between the parties
     pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes (i)
     any and all prior and preliminary discussions, (ii) any and
     all prior written or oral agreements and (iii) any and all
     contemporaneous written or oral agreements, understandings
     and/or negotiations between the parties.  There are no
     warranties, representations or other agreements between the
     parties in connection with the subject matter hereof except
     as set forth or referred to herein.

     (p)  Survival.  Sections 6 and 7 and all express post-
     termination benefit provisions shall survive the termination
     of this Agreement.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this
Employment Agreement as of the date first written above.

          Re:  Charles K. Crane, II / Image Newco, Inc.
               Employment Agreement

Dear Mr. Crane:

     Pursuant to that certain Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as
of August 20, 1998, between Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc. and
Image Newco, Inc. ("Image Newco"), Image Newco has agreed to
enter into an employment agreement with Charles K. Crane, II upon
the closing of the acquisition (" Ken Crane, Jr.'s Employment
Agreement").  Except as discussed below, Ken Crane, Jr.'s
Employment Agreement will be substantially in the form attached
to the Asset Purchase Agreement as Exhibit J.

     As you are aware, the form of employment agreement for Image
Entertainment's executive officers (the "Officers' Employment
Agreement") is currently being revised.  In particular, the Board
of Directors of Image entertainment has decided to rewrite the
"Cause" termination provision included in the Officers'
Employment Agreement.  You have expressed the concern that
differences might exist between the definition of "Cause"
included in Section 11 of Ken Crane, Jr.'s Employment Agreement
and the definition of "Cause" found in the Officers' Employment
Agreement.  Although the Officers' Employment Agreement has not
yet been finalized, I am writing to assure you that, upon
approval of the form of the Officers' Employment Agreement by the
Chairman of our Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors,
the form of Ken Crane, Jr.'s Employment Agreement will be
adjusted so that the definition of "Cause" included therein
(except as such definition is tailored in subsection (vi) to
include a material breach of the Asset Purchase Agreement by Ken
Crane's Magnavox City, Inc.) will match the corresponding
definition in the Officers' Employment Agreement.

     I very much look forward to working with your son and I
sincerely hope that this letter allays any concerns you might
have regarding the form of his employment agreement.

Very truly yours,

/s/ Martin W. Greenwald
Martin W. Greenwald
President and Chief Executive Officer

                       CONSULTING AGREEMENT

Purchase Agreement, dated as of _____________, 1998 (the "Asset
Purchase Agreement"), with Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc.
("Seller"), d/b/a Ken Crane's, a California corporation, pursuant
to which Image Newco, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Image
Entertainment, Inc. ("Image"), a publicly-held company, acquired
substantially all of the assets of Seller used in connection with
Seller's business of distributing laserdiscs and digital video
discs (the "Software Division");

     WHEREAS, Consultant has served as an [officer and] employee
of Seller since ___________________, 19__ and Image Newco desires
to obtain the benefit of continued service by Consultant on a
consulting basis, and Consultant desires to render services to
Image Newco on a consulting basis;

     WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of Image Newco (the "Board")
has determined that, because of Consultant's substantial
experience and business relationships in connection with the
business of Seller, it is in the best interests of Image Newco
and its sole stockholder, Image, to secure the services of
Consultant and to provide Consultant with the compensation and
benefits set forth herein; and

     WHEREAS, pursuant to this Agreement, Consultant will provide
general consulting services to Image Newco and Consultant will
make additional commitments to preserve Image Newco's goodwill.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and
covenants contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1.   TERM OF AGREEMENT

     Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, the term of
this Agreement shall be the period commencing on the date hereof
and ending on the first anniversary of the date hereof (the
"Consulting Term").

2.   ENGAGEMENT OF CONSULTING SERVICES

     (a)  Nature of Services.  Image Newco hereby engages
     Consultant to provide the consulting services set forth
     herein throughout the Consulting Term, at reasonable times
     and upon reasonable notice, as an advisor and consultant to
     Image Newco in matters affecting its business, taking into
     account Consultant's other business commitments and
     activities. Consultant's services shall be compatible with
     Consultant's position as a consultant to Image Newco and
     shall consist of (i) those services set forth in Schedule A
     hereto and made a part hereof and (ii) those services that

     reasonable efforts and abilities to promote Image Newco's
     interests.

     (b)  Consulting Fee.  In consideration of the Services to be
     performed during the Consulting Term and provided those
     Services are performed in accordance with the terms hereof,
     the Consultant shall be entitled to receive a consulting fee
     of $250,000.  One half of the consulting fee ($125,000)
     shall be advanced on the date hereof.  The remaining portion
     of the consulting fee ($125,000) shall be paid to Consultant
     no earlier than January 1, 1999 and no later than
     January 10, 1999.

     (c)  Taxes.  Consultant agrees to accept exclusive liability
     for the payment of all federal and state taxes or
     contributions for unemployment insurance or old age pensions
     or annuities or social security payments which are measured
     by payments to Consultant for the performance of the
     Services.  Consultant agrees fully to defend, indemnify and
     hold harmless Image Newco from the payment of taxes,
     interest, penalties or contributions which are required of
     Image Newco by any government agency at any time as the
     result of payment of the amounts set forth in this Section 2
     or which Image Newco may otherwise be compelled to pay
     (except to the extent required by law to be withheld and in
     fact withheld by Image Newco).  Consultant further agrees to
     comply with all valid administrative regulations respecting
     the assumption of liability for such taxes and
     contributions.

     (d)  Independent Contractor Relationship.  This Agreement
     establishes between Consultant and Image Newco an
     independent contractor relationship and all the terms and
     conditions of this Agreement shall be interpreted in light
     of that relationship.  There is no intention to create, by
     way of this Agreement, an employer-employee relationship
     with Consultant and Consultant shall not serve as an officer
     or director of Image Newco.  Except where expressly agreed
     upon in writing by an executive officer of Image Newco (an
     "Authorized Officer") or authorized by the Board, Consultant
     shall not have or represent that he/she has general
     authority to enter into, nor shall he/she enter into, any
     agreement or obligation on behalf of or in the name of Image
     Newco or any affiliate or otherwise purport to bind Image
     Newco or any affiliate.

     (e)  Work-Product Owned by Image Newco.  All information
     developed under this Agreement, of whatever type relating to
     the work performed under this Agreement, shall be the
     exclusive property of Image Newco.  All writings,
     instruments or other items produced or assembled by
     Consultant pursuant to this Agreement, shall be the
     exclusive property of Image Newco.

     (f)  No Inconsistent Commitments.  Consultant represents to
     Image Newco that Consultant has no outstanding commitments
     inconsistent with any of the terms of this Agreement or the
     Services to be rendered hereunder.

3.   COMPLIANCE; CONFLICTS

     In rendering the Services hereunder, Consultant shall obtain
and maintain all necessary or appropriate licenses, permits and
registrations and shall comply with all applicable laws and
regulations and policies of Image Newco.  Consultant shall not
pursue any business opportunities that constitute or may
constitute or appear to constitute a conflict of interest or
which materially interfere with, delay, jeopardize or otherwise
conflict with Consultant's duties under this Agreement, without
the prior written consent of the Chief Executive Officer of Image
Newco, which consent (in the case of possible or apparent
conflicts (as distinguished from actual conflicts)) shall not be
unreasonably withheld.

4.   TERMINATION; RECAPTURE OF PAYMENTS

     Consultant's Services hereunder shall be terminated and all
of his/her rights to retain consulting fees hereunder in respect
of the remaining Consulting Term shall terminate in the event
that (a) Consultant is found guilty by a court or regulatory body
of having committed fraud or theft against Image Newco or any
governmental entity or having committed a felony involving moral
turpitude; (b) Consultant, in the reasonable judgment of the
Board, compromises trade secrets or other proprietary information
of Image Newco and such breach or compromise has a significant
adverse effect on Image Newco; (c) Consultant breaches in any
material respect the terms of this Agreement and fails to cure
such breach within 30 days after written notice from Image Newco;
(d) in the reasonable judgment of the Board, Consultant neglects
or willfully fails or refuses to perform material assigned duties
and such failure or refusal continues for 30 days after written
notice from Image Newco specifying the manner in which he/she has
neglected, or willfully failed or refused to perform such duties;
or (e) in the reasonable judgment of the Board, Consultant has
engaged in gross or willful misconduct that causes substantial
and material harm to the business, operations or reputation of
Image Newco or a subsidiary or any affiliate.

     If Consultant fails or refuses to perform the Services in
the manner specified in Section 3 and fails to cure such breach
within 30 days after written notice from Image Newco or Image
Newco terminates Consultant pursuant to any of the provisions of
this Section 4, Image Newco shall so notify Consultant and, in
addition to the other rights and remedies of Image Newco for
breach of this Agreement, Image Newco shall be entitled (a) to
offset against the amount that is due and payable to Consultant
under this Agreement or any other agreement an amount equal to
(i) $250,000 multiplied by x (where x equals 365 days less the
number of days before termination) divided by (ii) 365 days (the
"Recapture Amount") or (b) if the Recapture Amount exceeds the
amount that is due and payable to Consultant, to obtain a refund
(a "Refund") of the Recapture Amount, or any portion thereof,
from Consultant with respect to payments made to Consultant by
Image Newco.  If Image Newco is entitled to a Refund of the
Recapture Amount, or any portion thereof, pursuant to this
Section 4, Image Newco shall be entitled to recover the costs of
obtaining such Refund from Consultant, including, but not limited
to, reasonable attorneys' fees.

5.   CONFIDENTIALITY; COOPERATION WITH LEGAL PROCESS; NON-
SOLICITATION

     (a)  Confidentiality.  Consultant acknowledges that he/she
     has held a management position within Seller and that, by
     virtue of having held such position, has had access to and
     has learned confidential and proprietary information and
     trade secrets pertaining to the business and operations of
     the Software Division.  Consultant further acknowledges
     that, as a consultant for Image Newco, Consultant may have
     access to and learn confidential and proprietary information
     and trade secrets pertaining to the business and operations
     of Image Newco and its affiliates.  Examples of such
     proprietary information and trade secrets include, but are
     not limited to, information as to the Software Division's
     and/or Image Newco's products, services, systems, software,
     finances (including prices, costs and revenues), marketing
     plans, programs, methods of operation, prospective and
     existing contracts, other business arrangements or business
     plans, procedures, strategies (including acquisition
     strategies), customer lists, referral sources, and other
     information concerning Image Newco's practices and
     procedures.  Consultant represents that he/she has held all
     such information confidential and will continue to do so and
     that he/she will not disclose any such information to any
     other person, except as may be required by law or as may
     (with the consent of the Chief Executive Officer of Image
     Newco) be necessary in furtherance of the performance of the
     Services hereunder.  Without limiting the generality of the
     foregoing, Consultant hereby agrees that he/she will not
     respond to or in any way participate in or contribute to any
     public discussion, notice or other publicity concerning or
     in any way related to proprietary or confidential
     information concerning the Software Division or Image Newco
     or its subsidiaries, affiliates, operations, officers or
     directors, or any matters concerning his/her consulting for
     Image Newco.  Consultant further agrees that any disclosure
     of any of the information referred to herein or any
     solicitation in violation of Section 5(c) hereof shall
     constitute a material breach of this Agreement and, in
     addition to other remedies available to Image Newco, shall
     entitle it to reimbursement any payments hereunder
     consistent with the formula in Section 4.

     (b)  Cooperation With Legal Process.  The parties agree that
     no provision of this Section 5 or any other provision of
     this Agreement shall be construed or interpreted in any way
     to limit, restrict or preclude either party hereto from
     cooperating with any governmental agency in the performance
     of its investigatory or other lawful duties or producing
     materials or giving testimony pursuant to a court
     proceeding, or restrict Consultant in the performance of the
     Services.  Consultant agrees that if he/she receives a
     subpoena or is otherwise required by law to provide
     information to a governmental entity or other person
     concerning the activities of the Image Newco or his/her
     activities in connection with the Image Newco's business,
     he/she will immediately notify Image Newco of such subpoena
     or requirement and deliver to Image Newco a copy of such
     subpoena or other notice, unless such disclosure would in
     the opinion of a recognized legal expert on such matters, be
     prohibited by law.

     (c)  Non-Solicitation.  Consultant agrees that he/she will
     not solicit any employee of Image Newco or its affiliates
     for employment or other services for himself/herself or any
     other entity.

     (d)  Nondisclosure of this Agreement.  Consultant agrees
     that he/she will keep the terms, amounts and facts of this
     Agreement completely confidential and will not hereafter
     disclose any information concerning this Agreement or the
     Services to anyone except his/her attorneys or accountants,
     including, but not limited to, any past, present, or
     prospective employees of the Software Division or of Image
     Newco or any of its affiliates, except, in each case, as may
     be required by law or as permitted in writing by Image Newco
     or as may be necessary in furtherance of the performance of
     the Services hereunder.

6.   GENERAL PROVISIONS

     (a)  Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement is binding upon
     and shall inure to the benefit of Image Newco and any
     successors in interest (including any successor by merger or
     person acquiring substantially all of its assets as an
     entirety ("Asset Sale")).  The parties hereto agree that
     Consultant's services are personal to Consultant and may not
     be delegated.  Consultant shall have no right to sell,
     transfer or assign this Agreement or any rights or benefits
     hereunder in any manner whatsoever, except by will or laws
     of descent and distribution.  Upon any merger, Asset Sale or
     change in control of Image Newco, the surviving entity or
     successor to the business of Image Newco, if any, shall
     expressly assume its obligations hereunder.

     (b)  Amendment.  This Agreement shall not be modified,
     amended or altered except by an instrument in writing
     executed by the parties hereto.

     (c)  Severability.  In the event that one or more of the
     provisions contained in this Agreement (or any portion of
     any such provision) shall for any reason be held invalid,
     illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity,
     illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other
     provision of this Agreement (or any portion of any such
     provision), but this Agreement shall be construed as if such
     invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision (or portion
     thereof) had never been contained herein.  It is the desire
     and intent of the parties hereto that the provisions of this
     Agreement shall be enforced to the fullest extent
     permissible under the laws and public policies applied in
     each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.  If any
     particular provision or portion of this Agreement shall be
     adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable, such
     adjudication shall apply only with respect to the operation
     of this Agreement in the particular jurisdiction in which
     such adjudication is made.

     (d)  Waiver.  The failure by either party, at any time, to
     require performance by the other of any of the provisions
     hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of any kind nor shall it
     in any way affect such party's rights thereafter to enforce
     the same.

     (e)  Notices.  All notices, requests, demands and other
     communications provided for by this Agreement shall be in
     writing and shall be deemed to have been given 24 hours
     after deposit thereof for mailing at any general or branch
     United States Post Office, enclosed in a registered, express
     or certified postage pre-paid envelope, or delivered by
     nationally recognized courier, and addressed as follows:

          The parties hereto may designate a different place at
     which notice shall be given, provided, however, that any
     such notice of change of address shall be effective only
     upon receipt or rejection thereof.

     commence any proceeding or action to enforce the provisions
     of this Agreement, the court before whom the same shall be
     tried may award the prevailing party all costs and expenses
     thereof, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys'
     fees, the usual, customary and lawfully recoverable court
     costs, and all other expenses in connection therewith.

     (i)  Advice of Counsel.  The parties represent and warrant
     that in executing this Agreement, they have each had the
     opportunity to obtain independent financial, legal, tax and
     other appropriate advice, and are not relying upon any other
     party (or the attorneys or other agents of such other party)
     for any advice.

     (j)  Subject Headings and Defined Terms.  Subject headings
     and choice of defined terms are included for convenience
     only and shall not be deemed part of this Agreement.

     (k)  Cumulative Rights and Remedies.  The rights and

     or in equity.

     (l)  Enforceability Representation.  Each party to this
     Agreement represents that this Agreement constitutes the
     legally valid and binding obligation of such party,
     enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms,
     except as may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency,
     reorganization, moratorium or similar laws relating to or
     affecting creditors' rights generally (including, without
     limitation, fraudulent conveyance laws) and by general
     principles of equity, including without limitation, concepts
     of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing
     and the possible unavailability of specific performance or
     injunctive relief, regardless of whether considered in a
     proceeding in equity or at law.

     (m)  Consent Representation.  Each party to this Agreement
     represents that such party is not required to submit any
     notice, report or other filing to or obtain any consent or

     (p)  Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the
     entire agreement between the parties pertaining to the
     subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements
     and understandings of the parties in connection therewith.

     (q)  Injunctive Relief.  Consultant hereby acknowledges and
     agrees that, because of the unique services and
     relationships contemplated by Section 3 hereof and for other
     reasons, any breach of or default under this Agreement will
     cause damage to Image Newco in an amount difficult to
     ascertain.  Accordingly, in addition to any other relief to
     which Image Newco may be entitled, Image Newco shall be
     entitled, without proof of actual damages, to such
     injunctive relief as may be ordered by any court of
     competent jurisdiction including, but not limited to, an
     injunction restraining any violation of Section 5 hereof.

<PAGE>

               FORM OF OPINION OF BUYER'S COUNSEL
                        ___________, 1998

Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc.
4900 W. 147th Street
Hawthorne, California  90250

Ladies and Gentlemen:

          I am General Counsel of Image NewCo, Inc., a California
corporation ("Buyer"), and as such I am delivering this opinion
in connection with the acquisition by Buyer of substantially all
of the assets of Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc., d/b/a Ken
Crane's, a California corporation ("Seller") used in connection
with Seller's business of distributing laserdiscs and digital
video discs, pursuant to that certain Asset Purchase Agreement,
dated as of ____________ 1998, between Buyer and Seller (the
"Agreement").  This opinion is rendered to you pursuant to
Section 8.3 of the Agreement.

          In my capacity as such counsel, I have examined
originals or copies of the Agreement and such corporate records
of Buyer, certificates of public officials and of officers of
Buyer, and other documents as I have deemed necessary for the
purpose of this opinion.  I have assumed the genuineness of the
signatures (except for those of the officers of Buyer executing
the Agreement), the authenticity of all items submitted to me as
originals, the conformity with originals of all items submitted
to me as copies and the due authority of all persons executing
the same.  As to material matters of fact, I have, when relevant
facts were not independently established, relied upon the
statements and certificates furnished to me.

          On the basis of such examination and my consideration
of such questions of law as I have deemed relevant in the
circumstances, I am of the opinion, subject to the assumptions,
qualifications and limitations set forth herein, that:

          1.   Buyer has been duly incorporated and is validly
existing and in good standing under the laws of California with
all necessary corporate power to carry on its business as now
being conducted, to enter into the Agreement and to carry out the
provisions of the Agreement, and to purchase the Purchased Assets
(as defined in the Agreement) and assume the Assumed Liabilities
(as defined in the Agreement).

          2.   Neither the execution and delivery of the
Agreement nor consummation of the transactions contemplated by it
will violate the provisions of, or constitute a breach or default
whether upon lapse of time and/or the occurrence of any act or
event or otherwise under (a) the charter documents or bylaws of
Buyer, (b) any Law (as defined in the Agreement) to which Buyer
is subject or (c) subject to any consents of its lenders, any
Contract (as defined in the Agreement) to which Buyer is a party
that is material to the financial condition, results of
operations or conduct of the business of Buyer.

          3.   The Agreement has been duly authorized by all
necessary corporate action on the part of Buyer.  The Agreement
has been duly executed and delivered by Buyer and constitutes a
legally valid and binding obligation of Buyer, enforceable
against Buyer in accordance with its terms, except as limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar
laws affecting creditors' rights, generally.  I advise you that
the enforceability of the Agreement is subject to the effect of
general principles of equity, including, without limitation,
concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair
dealing, and the possible unavailability of specific performance
or injunctive relief, regardless of whether considered in a
proceeding in equity or at law.

          In rendering the opinions expressed in Clause 3, I have
assumed that the Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and
delivered by Seller, that Seller has the requisite power and
authority to execute, deliver and perform the Agreement, that the
Agreement constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of
Seller, enforceable against Seller in accordance with its terms
(as so qualified), that Seller has obtained all necessary
Approvals (as defined in the Agreement) and Permits (as defined
in the Agreement) required to be obtained by Seller in order to
consummate the transactions contemplated by the Agreement, that
all items submitted as originals are authentic and that all items
submitted as copies conform to the originals, and I have not
independently verified such assumptions.

          I express no opinion concerning the laws of any
jurisdiction other than California.

          This opinion is solely for your benefit in connection
with your sale of the Purchased Assets and related transactions
and may not be relied upon by, nor may copies be delivered to,
any other Person, or used for any other purpose, without my prior
written consent.

                         Respectfully submitted,

                         Cheryl Lee, Esq.

                 FORM OF GUARANTY OF PERFORMANCE

<PAGE>

                            GUARANTY

     THIS GUARANTY (this "Guaranty") is made and entered into as
of ___________, 1998 by and among Charles K. Crane, an
individual, and the Crane Family Trust (the "Trust"), established
December 22, 1984 (each a "Guarantor" and, collectively, the
"Guarantors"), and Image Newco, Inc., a California corporation
("Buyer"), with reference to the following facts:

                            RECITALS

     WHEREAS, Ken Crane's Magnavox City, Inc., d/b/a Ken Crane's,
a California corporation ("Seller"), and Buyer are entering into
that certain Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of even date
herewith (the "Asset Purchase Agreement"), pursuant to which
Buyer has agreed to acquire substantially all of the operating
assets of Seller used in connection with Seller's business of
distributing laserdiscs and digital video discs;

     WHEREAS, the Trust, a revocable trust, owns all of the
Common Stock of Seller, and Charles K. Crane is the sole settlor
and trustee of the Trust;

     WHEREAS, each Guarantor controls, directly or indirectly,
Seller and will benefit from the transactions contemplated by the
Asset Purchase Agreement; and

     WHEREAS, in consideration of Buyer's entering into the Asset
Purchase Agreement, each Guarantor has agreed, at the request of
Seller, to guarantee certain of Seller's obligations under the
Asset Purchase Agreement.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals
and the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties hereto
agree as follows:

1.   Continuing Guaranty.  In the event that Seller fails to pay,
perform, satisfy or discharge any obligation or liability set
forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement, when and as such
obligations and liabilities shall become due in accordance with
the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, including any
applicable cure periods (collectively, the "Obligations"),
Guarantors, jointly and severally, fully, irrevocably and
unconditionally guarantee and promise to cause any Obligation not
paid, performed, satisfied or discharged, within 10 days after
written notice to either Guarantor, to be paid, performed,
satisfied or discharged in accordance with the terms of the Asset
Purchase Agreement (except that any Obligation that may be
performed, satisfied or discharged only by the taking of an
action or actions other than the payment of money shall, to the
extent of such action or actions, be paid, performed, satisfied
or discharged only to the extent reasonably possible) by
Guarantors.

2.   Limitations on Guaranty.  The indemnity and other payment
Obligations of the Guarantors shall be limited, in the aggregate,
to $5,000,000; provided, however, that if a Guarantor or Seller
shall be found to have committed an intentional
misrepresentation, the limitations on indemnification under this
Section 2 shall be ignored.

3.   Discharge Only Upon Satisfaction in Full; Reinstatement in
Certain Circumstances.  Each Guarantor's obligations hereunder
shall remain in full force and effect until all Obligations shall
have been paid, performed, satisfied and discharged in full.  If,
at any time, whether before or after the discharge of all
Obligations, any payment of any amount paid by or payable by
Seller under the Asset Purchase Agreement is rescinded or must be
otherwise restored or returned, upon the insolvency, bankruptcy
or reorganization of Seller, or otherwise, each Guarantor's
obligations hereunder with respect to such payment shall be
reinstated as though such payment had been due but not made at
such time.

4.   Representations and Warranties of Guarantor.  Each Guarantor
represents, warrants and agrees as follows:

     (a)  Guarantor is now and shall continue to be familiar with
the prospects, business, operations and financial condition of
Seller.

     (b)  Guarantor has the full capacity, right, power and
authority to enter into this Guaranty.  This Guaranty has been
duly executed and delivered by Guarantor and is enforceable in
accordance with its terms.

     (c)  Guarantor is not a party to, subject to or bound by any
Law (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement), and no Action
(as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) is pending against
Guarantor or, to Guarantor's knowledge, threatened, that would
prevent or adversely affect the execution, delivery or
performance of this Guaranty by Guarantor.

     (d)  Neither the execution and delivery of this Guaranty nor
the fulfillment of the terms hereof by Guarantor violates or will
violate, or results or will result in, any augmentation or
acceleration of rights, benefits or obligations of any party
under any Contract (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement)
to which Guarantor is a party or is bound, or any Order (as
defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) applicable to Guarantor.

5.   Transfer of Lease.  In connection with the transactions
contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement, each Guarantor has
taken, and will continue to take, all steps necessary to cause
Seller to (a) assign to Buyer, effective as of the Closing, all
of Seller's interests under the Lease (as defined in the Asset
Purchase Agreement), and (b) obtain all Permits (as defined in
the Asset Purchase Agreement) and Approvals (as defined in the
Asset Purchase Agreement), including third party consents, that
may be necessary or that may be reasonably requested by Buyer to
complete, evidence or validate the assignment of the Lease to
Buyer, without any additional liability or expense to Buyer.

6.   Restrictions on Soliciting Employees.

     (a)  To protect Buyer against any efforts by Guarantors to
cause employees, sales or other representatives or venturers,
partners or members of Buyer ("Covered Persons") to terminate
their employment or relationship with Buyer, each Guarantor
agrees that (i) in the case of an employee or sales or other
representative, for so long as such person is employed or engaged
by Buyer; and (ii) in the case of a venture, partnership or other
joint business arrangement, until the expiration of any
contractual arrangement between Buyer, on the one hand, and the
applicable Covered Person, on the other hand, the Securityholder
will not directly or indirectly (A) induce any Covered Person to
leave or cease doing business with Buyer or to accept any other
employment or position, (B) assist any other entity in hiring or
doing business with any Covered Person or (C) otherwise interfere
with Buyer's relationship (contractual or otherwise) with any
Covered Person.

     (b)  Guarantors recognize and agree that a breach by either
of them of this non-solicitation covenant could cause irreparable
harm to Buyer, that Buyer's remedies at law in the event of such
breach would be inadequate, and that, accordingly, in the event
of such breach a restraining order or injunction or both may be
issued against any Guarantor, in addition to any other rights and
remedies which are available to Buyer.  If this Section 6 is more
restrictive than permitted by the Laws (as defined in the Asset
Purchase Agreement) of any jurisdiction in which Buyer seeks
enforcement hereof, this Section 6 shall be limited to the extent
required to permit enforcement under such Laws.  If, in any
judicial proceeding, a court shall refuse to enforce any of the
covenants deemed included in this Section 6 in any place or as to
any Covered Person, then the unenforceable covenant shall be
deemed eliminated from these provisions for the purpose of those
proceedings only to the extent necessary to permit the remaining
covenants to be enforced as to other locations or Covered
Persons.

7.   Incorporation by Reference.  The provisions of Section 7.2
[Nondisclosure of Proprietary Data], 7.3 [Tax Cooperation] and
Article IX [Termination of Obligations; Survival] of the Asset
Purchase Agreement shall apply mutatis mutandis to the provisions
of this Guaranty.

8.   Notices.  Any notice or other communication hereunder must

parties hereto acknowledge that such court has the jurisdiction
to interpret and enforce the provisions of this Guaranty and,
except pursuant to Section 13 below, the parties waive any and
all objections that they may have as to jurisdiction or venue in
any of the above courts.

10.  Amendment of Asset Purchase Agreement.  Any modification of
the Asset Purchase Agreement shall not release Guarantors of any
obligation hereunder, except to the extent Guarantors are
materially prejudiced thereby.  Guarantors specifically agree
that their obligations hereunder shall not be released, modified
or otherwise affected by any failure or delay on Buyer's part to
enforce any of Buyer's rights or remedies under the Asset
Purchase Agreement, whether pursuant to the terms thereof, or at
law or in equity.  Guarantors hereby waive notice of acceptance
of this Guaranty, and any right to require Buyer to pursue or
exhaust any other remedy Buyer may have against Seller (or any
successor or assign) before proceeding against Guarantors.

11.  Attorneys' Fees.  Should any litigation or arbitration be
commenced (including any proceedings in a bankruptcy court)
between the parties hereto or their representatives concerning
any provision of this Guaranty or the rights and duties of any
Person hereunder, solely as between the parties hereto or their

subject matter hereof and supersede all agreements,
representations, warranties, statements, promises and
understandings, whether oral or written, with respect to the
subject matter hereof.

under, arising out of, in connection with or in relation to this
Guaranty, including but not limited to the negotiation,

performance, non-performance, breach, termination, validity or
enforceability of this Guaranty or any alleged fraud in
connection therewith, shall be settled, at the request of either
Guarantor or Buyer, by arbitration conducted in accordance with
the arbitration procedure set forth in Article XII of the Asset
Purchase Agreement.

14.  Subrogation.  So long as Guarantors continue to comply with
and perform the terms of this Guaranty and are not otherwise in
default of their obligations hereunder, Guarantors shall not be
required to withhold, limit or otherwise restrict any rights of
subrogation or contribution they may have against Seller or any
other party with respect to such obligations.

15.  Lien or Security Interest.  This Guaranty is not secured and
does not create a lien upon or a security interest in any
property or assets of either Guarantor or obligate either
Guarantor to grant a security interest to Buyer in any of
Guarantors' property or assets.

16.  Counterparts.  This Guaranty and any amendment hereto or any
other agreement (or document) delivered pursuant hereto may be

other party.

17.  Assignment; Successors and Assigns.  Neither this Guaranty

that Buyer may assign its rights under this Guaranty to any
Person (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) to whom Buyer

the KC Marks (as defined below) in connection with the sale or
distribution of Optical Discs (as defined in the Asset Purchase
Agreement) through any medium, including retail stores, mail
order and Internet sales.  The term "KC Marks" shall mean the
names and logos and derivations thereof used by Seller in the
operation of the Software Division, including, but not limited
to, "Ken Crane's", "Ken Crane's Home Entertainment City", "Ken
Crane's Laserdisc" and "Ken Crane's Laserdiscs/DVDs".

     2.   Reasonableness of Restrictions and Enforceability.
Given Crane and the Trust's positions, directly or indirectly, as
sole shareholder of Seller and Crane's strong business and
community ties significant to the business and growth of Seller
and, in particular, the Software Division, Crane and the Trust
acknowledge that the restrictions set forth in this Agreement are
reasonable both individually and in the aggregate and that the
duration, geographic scope, extent and application of each of
such restrictions are no greater than is necessary for the
protection of the legitimate business interests of Buyer, which
include but are not limited to the Software Division's trade
secrets and other valuable confidential business information, the
Software Division's substantial relationships with prospective or
existing customers and suppliers, and the goodwill associated
with the Software Division's Business.  It is the desire and
intent of the parties hereto that the provisions of this
Agreement shall be enforced to the fullest extent permissible
under the laws and public policies applied in each jurisdiction
in which enforcement is sought.  If any particular provision or
portion of this Agreement shall be adjudicated to be invalid or
unenforceable, such adjudication shall apply only with respect to
the operation of such provision to that extent and in the
particular jurisdiction in which such adjudication is made.
Further, in the event that any restriction herein shall be found
to be void or unenforceable for its term or scope but would be
valid or enforceable if some part or parts thereof were deleted
or the period or area of application reduced, each of the parties
hereby agrees that the applicable restriction shall apply with
such modifications as may be necessary to make it valid and
enforceable.

     3.   Miscellaneous Provisions.

          (a)  Third Party Beneficiaries.  The parties agree and
     intend that Image and its subsidiaries and other affiliates
     are and will be express third party beneficiaries of the
     covenants set forth in this Agreement.

          (b)  Construction.  Each party has cooperated in the
     drafting and preparation of this Agreement.  Accordingly,
     this Agreement shall not be construed against any party on
     the basis that the party was the drafter.

          (c)  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in
     counterparts, and each counterpart, when executed, shall
     have the efficacy of a signed original.  Photostatic copies
     of such signed counterparts may be used in lieu of the
     originals for any purpose.

          (d)  Consent to Jurisdiction.  This Agreement and the
     legal relations between the parties shall be governed by and
     construed in accordance with the laws of the State of
     California applicable to contracts made and performed in
     such State and without regard to conflicts of law doctrines
     except to the extent that certain matters are preempted by
     federal law.

          (e)  Enforceability Representation.  Each party to this
     Agreement represents that this Agreement constitutes the
     legally valid and binding obligation of such party,
     enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms,
     except as may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency,
     reorganization, moratorium or similar laws relating to or
     affecting creditors' rights generally (including, without
     limitation, fraudulent conveyance laws) and by general
     principles of equity, including without limitation, concepts
     of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing
     and the possible unavailability of specific performance or
     injunctive relief, regardless of whether considered in a
     proceeding in equity or at law.

          (f)  Consents.  Neither Crane nor the Trust is required
     to submit any notice, report or other filing to or obtain
     any consent or approval from any governmental authority or
     third party under any agreement to which either Crane or the
     Trust is a party in order to execute, deliver and perform
     this Agreement as contemplated hereby.

          (g)  Waivers.  No waiver of any breach of any term or
     provision of this Agreement shall be construed to be, or
     shall be, a waiver of any other breach of this Agreement.
     No waiver shall be binding unless in writing and signed by
     the party waiving the breach.

          (h)  Cooperation.  All parties agree to cooperate fully
     and to execute any and all supplementary documents and to
     take all additional actions that may be necessary or
     appropriate to give full force to the basic terms and intent
     of this Agreement and which are not inconsistent with its
     terms.

          (i)  Opportunity to Review.  Crane and the Trust each
     represent and agree that each of them has discussed all
     aspects of this Agreement with an attorney of his/its
     choice, has carefully read and fully understands all of the
     provisions of this Agreement and is voluntarily entering
     into this Agreement.

          (j)  Attorney's Fees.  In the event of any action by
     any party arising under or out of, in connection with or in
     respect of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be
     entitled to reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys' fees
     incurred in such action.  Attorney's fees incurred in
     enforcing any judgment in respect of this Agreement are
     recoverable as a separate item.  The parties intend that the
     preceding sentence be severable from the other provisions of
     this Agreement, survive any judgment and, to the maximum
     extent permitted by law, not be deemed merged into such
     judgment.

          (k)  No Reliance.  Each of Crane and the Trust
     represent and acknowledge that in executing this Agreement,
     he/it does not rely and has not relied on any
     representations or statements made by Buyer, or any of
     Buyer's agents, representatives or attorneys with regard to
     the subject matter, basis or effect of this Agreement, or
     otherwise.

          (l)  Severable Covenants.  The parties hereto intend
     that the covenants set forth in Sections 1 hereof shall be
     construed as a series of separate covenants, each consisting
     of the covenants set forth in Sections 1 for each of the
     Locations.  Except for such Locations, all such separate
     covenants shall be deemed identical.  It is the desire and
     intent of the parties hereto that the provisions of this
     Agreement shall be enforced to the fullest extent
     permissible under the laws and public policies applied in
     each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.  Without
     limiting the generality of Section 2 hereof, if any
     particular provision or portion of this Agreement shall be
     adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable, such
     adjudication shall apply only with respect to the operation
     of this Agreement in the particular jurisdiction in which
     such adjudication is made.

          (m)  Entire Agreement; Changes.  This Agreement
     constitutes the entire agreement and final understanding
     between the parties concerning the subject hereof and
     supersedes any prior negotiations and all agreements whether
     existing, proposed or otherwise, whether written or oral,
     concerning the subject hereof.  No modification of this
     Agreement shall be valid unless made in writing and signed
     by the parties hereto.

          (n)  Succession.  This Agreement shall inure to the
     benefit of and shall be binding upon the parties and, as to
     Buyer and the Trust, their respective successors and
     permitted assigns, but without the prior written consent of
     Crane and the Trust this Agreement may not be assigned other
     than to a transferee of all or a substantial part of the
     Business and/or its associated goodwill, to a purchaser of
     more than 10% of the stock of Buyer or to Image or any of
     its affiliates or subsidiaries.  The obligations and duties
     of each of Crane and the Trust hereunder shall be personal
     and not assignable.

          (o)  Injunctive Relief.  Each of Crane and the Trust
     hereby acknowledge and agree that any breach of or default
     under this Agreement will cause damage to Buyer and Image in
     an amount difficult to ascertain.  Accordingly, in addition
     to any other relief to which Buyer may be entitled, Buyer
     and Image shall be entitled, without proof of actual
     damages, to such injunctive relief as may be ordered by any
     court of competent jurisdiction including, but not limited
     to, an injunction restraining any violation of Section 1
     hereof.

          (p)  Independent Agreements and Remedies.  This
     Agreement is in addition to the Asset Purchase Agreement and
     the parties' rights and remedies under this Agreement and
     under the Asset Purchase Agreement shall be independent,
     separate and distinct, but also shall be cumulative.

          (q)  Notice.  For purposes of this Agreement, notices
     and all other communications provided for in this Agreement

WHEREAS, the Parties desire to amend the Asset Purchase Agreement as hereinafter provided. NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual premises contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows: 1. Amendment to Asset Purchase Agreement. Section 9.1 is hereby amended by replacing it in its entirety with the following: "9.1 Termination of Agreement. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement (except to the extent provided in Section 9.2) and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may be terminated prior to the Closing by written notice by either party after January 15, 1999 unless this date is extended by mutual consent in writing of Buyer and Seller and may otherwise be terminated at any time before the Closing as follows and in no other manner: (a) Mutual Consent. By mutual consent in writing of Buyer and Seller. (b) Conditions to Buyer's Performance Not Met.

(c) Conditions to Seller's Performance Not Met. By Seller upon written notice to Buyer if any event occurs which would render impossible the satisfaction of one or more conditions to the obligation of Seller to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as set forth in Section 8.1 or 8.3. (d) Inaccurate Information. By Buyer if any material information (whether or not in writing) delivered by or on behalf of Seller to Buyer is inaccurate or incomplete in any material respect. (e) Certain Conditions. By Seller if the Closing has not occurred by that date which is five (5) business days after the date of receipt by Buyer of the Financing by Buyer as contemplated by Section 6.12 and the Nasdaq listing contemplated by Section 8.2(n), provided Seller has performed all obligations of Seller and has delivered the documents to be delivered by or on behalf of Seller under Section 8.2.

(i) Diligence Investigation. By Buyer upon delivery of written notice of termination to Seller (A) no later than 10 business days after the delivery by Seller of the last of the documents requested prior to the date hereof by Buyer to complete its diligence, or (B) if Buyer in the reasonable exercise of its judgment in the course of its ongoing business investigation of Seller shall determine after reviewing information, projections and assumptions developed by Seller and their representatives and delivered to Buyer that such information, projections and assumptions are not commercially reasonable in light of current business conditions or otherwise are likely to be so materially inaccurate that Buyer does not have reasonable assurance that such projections are in a range in which it is probable that such projections will be met." 2.
