 INTERNATIONAL TRADE GETS VIDEOWINDOW TO THE 21ST CENTURY;
 FIRST INTERNATIONAL TESTS OF NEW TECHNOLOGY
 MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- BVC VideoCom and the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) are collaborating to link hundreds of World Trade Center member sites with a state of the art, life size video conferencing system. The first international demonstrations of the new video conferencing technology will take place April 6-7, 1992, as part of the grand opening of Montreal's World Trade Center and the WTCA's board of directors meeting.
 During the demonstrations, Ameritech, Bell Canada, Sprint and Bellcore will participate in another first: the international testing of high bit rate digital subscriber line (HDSL) technology in support of the video conferencing link. HDSL will enable the vast embedded copper plant network to transport T1 services during the interim period while fiber is being installed.
 BVC, which its systems integrator TeleMeasurements, Inc., is developing video conferencing systems which produce images so life-like they give users a sense of "presence" of the remote party. Bellcore, the USA's largest research consortium, has signed a licensing agreement for its large screen video teleconferencing patents with BVC VideoCom.
 "The stunning effect of 'telepresence' is achieved by combining a wide screen display which provides life-size images, and full duplex or two-way audio," noted Jean Aspen, vice president, BVC. The high-quality audio allows users to speak and hear without the "clipping" or "cutting off" common to other teleconferencing systems.
 "Our telepresence system will give users the feeling they are looking at each other through a large picture window -- a VideoWindow -- and talking as naturally as if they were sitting across the room from one another," Aspen concluded.
 BVC VideoCom is an Indiana-based corporation which is entering the video conferencing business using large-screen video conferencing sites. In addition to working with the World Trade Centers Association, BVC will be working with other companies. For these companies, the video conferencing systems will be used to bring together, via telepresence, work forces which are operating in many countries on several continents.
 The World Trade Centers Association was founded in 1968 to encourage the expansion of world trade through the World Trade Center concept. The WTCA has grown to become a network of over 230 member organizations in cities world wide. The association is dedicated to three basic goals: to encourage mutual assistance and cooperation among members, promote international business relationships, and foster increased participation in world trade by developing nations.
 TeleMeasurements Inc., based in Clifton, N.J., is a communications systems engineering sales and service organization. TeleMeasurements provides custom audio and visual teleconferencing facilities to Fortune 500 companies.
