SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA UPGRADES THE ASSOCIATES PRESS SATELLITE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM WITH SEDAT(TM) RECEIVERS

 ATLANTA, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. (NYSE: SFA), today announced it will provide The Associated Press (AP) with a satellite distribution system that will increase access to AP programming by thousands of stations and at the same time allow AP to offer individual programming to selected stations.
 The Scientific-Atlanta system, which includes more than 400 Symphony(TM) DSR-5000 Series Digital Satellite Receivers, allows AP to distribute SEDAT(TM) audio and high speed data to radio stations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
 The new system also allows radio stations to select audio programming from the satellite automatically, via special receiver software designed by Scientific-Atlanta. AP will be the first in the industry to use this software feature.
 The contract includes specialized uplink transmission equipment including the Scientific-Atlanta model AD3318 SEDAT Studio Server. SEDAT, a digital audio compression technology introduced by Scientific-Atlanta in 1990, allows radio networks and broadcasters to increase their satellite channel capacity and transmit and store CD-quality sound.
 The equipment, produced by Scientific-Atlanta's Broadcast Radio and Data Systems, will be shipped to AP later this year. Deployment will be completed by mid-1994.
 Broadcast Radio and Data Systems, part of Scientific-Atlanta's Private Networks Business Division, is based in Melbourne, Fla. The division designs, manufactures, installs and supports satellite communications systems for data, video and audio communications and has installed more than 10,000 earth stations worldwide.
 Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. is a world leader in broadband communications systems, cable television electronics, satellite-based communications networks, and instrumentation for industrial, telecommunications and government applications.
