CARVE THE TURKEY; THEN MAKE PLANS TO SEE FAR AWAY RELATIVES WITHOUT TRAVELING

 CLEVELAND, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Through the technological wonders of videoconferencing, families can forgo hopping on an airplane or spending hours in the car going cross country to grandma's house for the holidays, and they can do it for free.
 During Dec. 20 through Dec. 23 three companies actively involved in multimillion-dollar videoconferencing centers will waive their usual fees to allow individuals to both see and talk with relatives in cities miles away.
 Management Recruiters International Inc. (MRI), Compression Labs Inc. (CLI) and AT&T are joining forces to provide free access for people nationwide to experience videoconferencing and bring families together without the time and expense of travel.
 MRI's ConferView Videoconferencing Centers located in eighty of their Sales Consultants and Management Recruiters offices will allow the public to reserve fifteen minutes with a long-distance relative via videoconferencing, which is like talking to a TV that can talk back to you.
 AT&T's Global Business Video Services will be providing ACCUNET Switched Digital Service which transmits the audio and video communications. CLI's state-of-the-art eclipse unit (a television set with its own camera) will allow both parties to talk and interact simultaneously.
 All three companies are waiving the usual costs of their services which MRI's clients utilize for candidate interviews, meetings or legal depositions. During a normal business day, videoconferencing saves time and money in long-distance travel by linking parties together.
 To reserve a videoconferencing time, individuals can call MRI at 800- 875-4000 by Dec. 15, 1993.
