 ALDUS OFFERS PRINT-TO-VIDEO KIT FOR ALDUS PERSUASION
 BOSTON, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today


announced Print-to-Video, a toolkit that offers a complete solution for transferring Aldus Persuasion presentations to videotape. The Print-to- Video kit includes hardware and software components that work with Persuasion 2.0 and 2.1 for the Apple Macintosh. The kit is available for a limited time through a special offer from Aldus.
 The Print-to-Video kit contains everything necessary to transfer finished presentations to videotape: MediaMaker CV from Macromedia, software that enables users to import Persuasion slides and add timing, music and narrative to their video (this is a mini-version of the full MediaMaker program, which can also import Persuasion slides); a WTI-VideoMax encoder from Workstation Technologies Inc., hardware that converts computer data to video (NTSC) format; and new Persuasion Auto- Templates specifically designed for videotape output. The kit also comes with user manuals and sample sound and animation files for use with videotaped presentations. Customers supply their own copy of Aldus Persuasion.
 "The Print-to-Video solution was developed in response to customer requests for a way to transfer Persuasion presentations to videotape," said Mark Sherman, Aldus product marketing manager. "Print-to-Video is the fastest, simplest way to create videotape presentations right on your desktop."
 Once created, these videotaped presentations can be used for training and orientation tapes, product demonstrations, point-of- purchase displays, "live" handouts for audiences, high-impact client proposals, and other kinds of informational and sales materials.
 PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
 The Print-to-Video kit will be available within 30 days as a special promotion for $395(U.S.) from Aldus Customer Services only. To order the kit or obtain more information, call 206-628-2320. This offer is valid while supplies last.
