ARC ANNOUNCES 'DIGITAL SOUND FOR THE MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY'

 ARC ANNOUNCES 'DIGITAL SOUND FOR THE MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY'
 TORONTO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ARC International Corporation (AMEX: ATV) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Ballantyne of Omaha, has completed the development of a new 6 track digital sound system for movie theaters.
 The Model DLS6 Digital Laser Sound System provides true "CD Quality" for the motion picture industry. It is a complete system utilizing a 12-inch laser disc encoded with six discreet channels of digital sound. The original sound track of the motion picture is encoded on a laser disc. The result is clean dynamic digital sound reproduced in the movie theater. The discreet channels are available for movies up to three hours in length on one side of the laser disc.
 Ballantyne will begin manufacturing, with first deliveries scheduled for March. There are approximately about 55,000 motion picture screens worldwide. Ballantyne is the world leader in motion picture projection booth equipment for the theater industry marketing under the trade names "Strong" and "Simplex."
 The company also announced that it has planned demonstrations in Hollywood for movie producers and directors toward the end of January. In February, theater owners and film distributors will be able to hear the new system at the industry's ShoWest Convention in Las Vegas, Nev.
 ARC International Corporation expects the DLS6 to contribute significantly to profits in 1992.
