LASERTECHNICS ANNOUNCES FORMATION OF NEW IMAGING COMPANY

 BOSTON, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Lasertechnics Inc. has announced its intention to acquire the assets of Texas-based Media Imaging Technologies Corp. (MITC), producer of imaging software and photographic image transmitters, and has created Sandia Imaging Systems (SIS), a subsidiary of Lasertechnics. SIS will be headquartered in Carrollton, Texas.
 "SIS will then be a complete imaging resource, combining MITC's flexible SNAPSHOT software and imaging systems capabilities with Lasertechnics' high-resolution imaging products and capabilities, such as its DIR/Direct Drive Gray Scale Printer, and its interest in Printis, a thermal printing product development company in France," says George Peterson, president/chief executive officer of SIS.
 Combined resources will enable SIS to join software and hardware, such as cameras, scanners, workstations, networks, and printers to provide customers with totally integrated photographic imaging system solutions.
 "SIS' strength will lie in its ability to design and/or supply necessary components for custom imaging systems," says Peterson. "This expertise will enable customers to get their imaging systems up and running faster and will provide complete supplier accountability for system integration."
 SIS imaging systems and products will be utilized in a variety of markets, including newsphoto, weather/LANDSAT, medical, microscopy, karyotyping, forensics, mapping and reconnaissance, for the production, manipulations, transmission and storage of photo-quality digitized images.
 Headquartered in a new, 6,500-square-foot-facility, SIS will also undertake research and development of its high-performance imaging products and offer extended service capabilities from the Carrollton location.
 Founded in 1981, Lasertechnics is located in Albuquerque, N.M. It has regional sales offices throughout the United States and distribution outlets worldwide. Lasertechnics produces and markets laser marking systems and related technologies for a diverse range of industrial and commercial markets.
