MINNEAPOLIS -- January 7, 2013

Rimage Corporation (NASDAQ: RIMG) today announced that Peter Shutte has joined
as Vice President of Business Development of Qumu, its enterprise video and
digital publishing software business. He will report to Vern Hanzlik, Senior
Vice President of Rimage and General Manager of Qumu.

Peter Shutte has over 20 years of sales and business development experience
with enterprise software and Software as a Service (SaaS) companies. His most
recent corporate position was General Manager of Cloud Services and
Partnerships at Looxcie, a real-time streaming and recording device maker,
where he was responsible for OEM relationships and helping bring Looxcie Live
(real-time streaming capability) to market. Prior to that, he served as Vice
President of Business Development and then Vice President of Sales at Sajan
Inc., a cloud-based provider of global language services and translation
management software. He joined Sajan from WebEx, which he joined in 1999 and
where he ran the Enterprise Sales group. During his tenure, WebEx established
itself as the premier web conferencing solution for the enterprise. Mr. Shutte
cofounded Workgroup Technology, an enterprise PDM/PLM software company, in
1992. There he established both a channel and direct revenue model throughout
the US and then Europe which helped enable the company’s successful IPO in
1996. Mr. Shutte has been consulting and advising start-up organizations in
the San Francisco Bay Area over the past year prior to joining Qumu.

“Peter is a tremendous addition to our management team at Qumu,” said Vern
Hanzlik, SVP and GM of Qumu. “His enterprise software application and
collaboration expertise brings a valuable perspective to our business
development and channel strategies. With his experience in growing several
software companies and establishing them as leaders in their markets, Peter
will be able to step in immediately to expand and build our channel strategy
with companies like Microsoft, IBM and Oracle. These relationships will become
invaluable, given the continued momentum that Qumu has demonstrated in the
last two quarters with top-tier enterprises.”

Mr. Shutte said, “Qumu has many of the elements required for success,
including leading software technology, a blue chip customer base, and
expanding market presence. I look forward to working with the Qumu team to
build on the success of the last several quarters in driving our video
solutions for the enterprise in the US and Europe.”

The Company also announced that it will grant an inducement award to Peter
Shutte in connection with his appointment as Vice President of Business
Development of Qumu. Mr. Shutte will receive an "inducement award" as defined
