 BROOKTROUT HIRES TWO WORLD-CLASS ENGINEERS
 WITH EXTENSIVE EXPERTISE IN DSP AND ISDN
 NEEDHAM, Mass., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Brooktrout Technology Inc. today announced the appointment of Alex Berestetsky as senior design engineer and Richard S. Shultz Jr. as product manager.
 Berestetsky was one of the top 10 experts in digital signal processing (DSP) in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) before emigrating a year ago. Shultz is one of the leading authorities on Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) in the United States.
 "The addition of Alex Berestetsky and Dick Shultz to Brooktrout's development team strengthens our position in core technologies key to product development," said Brooktrout President Eric Giler. "Brooktrout is known industrywide as an innovator in the area of multichannel integrated voice/fax hardware and software. The hiring of these individuals underscores the fact that we intend to maintain our technology leadership position in this arena."
 Berestetsky has extensive experience in the areas of design and computer-based modeling of algorithms and devices for digital signal processing in data and telecommunications systems, including mobile reception, compression/reconstruction of audio signals, image processing, channel equalization and echo suppression. He holds 16 patents and has published widely.
 From 1988 to 1992, Berestetsky was a senior research engineer with the Scientific Research Institute of Broadcasting, Reception and Acoustics in Leningrad. During this time he was responsible for a number of projects including the design and implementation of the receiver for a digital broadband broadcasting system for mobile reception. This project was undertaken jointly with the Common Center of Studies of Telediffusion & Telecommunications (CCETT), a French governmental authority, and the Institute of Radio Telecommunications (IRT), a regulatory board in Germany.
 Berestetsky also was a software engineer with the Electrical Engineering Institute of Telecommunications in Leningrad and a digital engineer with the Analytical Instrument-Making Institute of the USSR Academy of Science. Also, as a visiting professor with the Institute of Electrical Engineers, Berestetsky developed and conducted a course on digital filtering and spectrum analysis.
 Berestetsky has a doctorate in electrical engineering from the Electrical Engineering Institute of Telecommunications and master's and bachelor's degrees in computer science and electrical engineering, respectively, from the Electrical Engineering Institute in Leningrad.
 Shultz has more than two decades of experience specifying, developing and introducing products into the data communications and industrial control markets.
 He came to Brooktrout from Motorola Codex, where he managed multiple product development and marketing programs, including the development program of an ISDN terminal adapter. Shultz also developed public databases of ISDN deployment, users and regulatory requirements worldwide for use by sales, marketing and engineering groups and provided the technical lead on the "Basics Book of ISDN" and two computer-based training programs on ISDN.
 Previously Shultz was product marketing manager at the Foxboro Co., which develops and manufactures instrumentation and controls for fluid process industries. He also was a product specialist with Texas Instruments, a systems application engineer with Electronics Corp. of America, and in various engineering positions with Reliance Electric Co.
 Shultz has a master's degree in business administration from Babson College and a bachelor's degree in industrial management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Business.
 Brooktrout is a market and technical leader in voice and facsimile messaging systems and holds a landmark patent in integrated voice and fax messaging. The company was the first to introduce multichannel fax cards, combine voice and facsimile on a single card, use Direct Inward Dial (DID) for autorouting of facsimile messaging, and provide facsimile support for UNIX platforms.
