AT&T INTRODUCES SECURE VIDEOTELEPHONE

 AT&T INTRODUCES SECURE VIDEOTELEPHONE
 GREENSBORO, N.C., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE: T) today


introduced the world's first secure videotelephone. The key component in this exclusive system is the AT&T Secure Video Docking Unit, which contains a compact video camera and monitor.
 The docking unit is sold with the AT&T Secure Voice/Data Terminal. It is also available separately for users who already have the secure voice/data terminal. The Secure Voice/Data Terminal and Video Docking Unit are priced at $8,295 to commercial customers.
 Production of the docking unit will begin in July; the first units will be shipped in September. Manufacturing will be managed by Comtech Labs of Palo Alto, CA., AT&T's partner in development of the docking unit.
 The AT&T Secure Video Docking Unit is fully compatible with AT&T's new line of Series 1000, 2000 and 4000 secure telephone products. Users of the AT&T secure videophone system will be able to communicate freely with secure and non-secure phones that aren't equipped for video transmission.
 Secure video calls can be transmitted over regular phone lines at 9.6 kbps. And the secure features of the AT&T Voice/Data Terminal are fully preserved.
 When attached to the base of the AT&T Secure Voice/Data Terminal, the AT&T Secure Video Docking Unit allows point-to-point secure video communication. It also securely transmits high-resolution still-frame images.
 The unit's four-inch monitor displays sharp, motion images of three to eight frames per second adjustable with 256 colors. The image can be enlarged by connecting the unit to an external video monitor.
 "Simply connect the Video Docking Unit to the base of your AT&T secure phone and plug the phone into a standard telephone jack," says W. Michael Agee, AT&T's Secure Communications Products Marketing Manager. "Place your call and press the Secure Data button on your phone. It's that easy."
 Video capability makes the AT&T Secure Voice/Data Terminal the most full-featured secure communications product on the market -- offering dial-up secure transmission, encrypted voice, secure facsimile transmission, remote computer access, electronic mailbox connectivity and more.
