ATI TECHNOLOGIES' FAX MODEMS FIRST TO ACHIEVE 19,200 BPS FAX TRANSMISSION RATES

 THORNHILL, Ontario, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- ATI Technologies, Inc. (Toronto: ATY) today announced that its 19200 ETC fax-modems are the first to achieve fax transmission rates of 19,200 bps.
 ATI developed its high-speed 19200 ETC-I(TM) and 19200 ETC-E(TM) PC fax-modems to take advantage of AT&T Microelectronics' V.32/V.17terbo chip set and SofNet's FaxWorks(TM) 3.0 software. ATI harnessed the full power of the V.32terbo to extend the fax transfer rate of its modems from the commonly used 14,400 bps to 19,200 bps. This rate exceeds the speeds of the new 28,800 bps modems whose fax transmissions only reach 14,400 bps.
 "We are pleased that ATI has successfully exploited the full capability of our V.32terbo chip set, providing the marketplace with the first fax-modem to take advantage of 19,200 transmission," said Haig Sarkissian, AT&T Microelectronics modem group marketing manager.
 The ATI 19200 ETC fax-modems include FaxWorks 3.0 software from SofNet, which is the first fax software capable of supporting 19,200 bps fax operation. FaxWorks 3.0 is standalone fax software for Windows which allows users to fax from any application as easily as printing. FaxWorks 3.0 supports full sending and receiving of faxes, phone directory and thumbnail viewing of any multiple page fax for swapping, inserting and deleting any page within that document.
 "As the first software vendor to support 19,200 bps transmission faxing, we are pleased to offer ATI customers unprecedented speed and functionality," said Drew Lanham, director of OEM sales, SofNet, Inc. "By the third quarter of this year, our other fax software packages for standalone and LAN users will also support 19,200 bps."
 ATI, AT&T and SofNet have collaborated on a standard specification for 19,200 transmission which they will make available to other modem manufacturers using the AT&T chip set.
 ATI's modems are priced at $259US for the internal 19200 ETC-I and $279 for the external 19200 ETC-E, and are available through most resellers and distributors.
