Comverse Technology Inc. receives $2 million order from European Government Agency for AUDIODISK Systems.

WOODBURY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 23, 1995--Comverse Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:CMVT) announced the receipt of an order of approximately $2 million for AUDIODISK(TM) systems. The identity of the customer, a government agency located in Europe and a first-time AUDIODISK buyer, is being withheld at the customer's request.

Kobi Alexander, Comverse's President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said, "AUDIODISK is at the leading edge of the early stages of a major transition by the world's law enforcement and intelligence agencies, in which outdated analog recording equipment is being replaced with more sophisticated and effective digital technology."

AUDIODISK is a multiple-channel, multimedia digital recording system designed and developed by Comverse primarily for law enforcement and intelligence gathering applications. The product, now in its fifth generation, has been sold in 20 countries around the world.

AUDIODISK systems enable many simultaneous users to monitor and process voice, image (facsimile) and data communications from multiple channels in a variety of analog and digital formats, provide facilities for archiving large volumes of recorded information and allow the use of computer database processing techniques for management and retrieval operations. The systems have been sold primarily to law enforcement and intelligence agencies that monitor and record communication channels for a variety of purposes, such as surveillance in support of police actions and the collection and processing of information for intelligence analysis.

Traditionally, analog tape recorders, alone or coupled with a variety of special purpose devices, have been utilized for these applications. The worldwide growth in telecommunications traffic in general and digital communications in particular, and the increasing use of a variety of digital transmission formats in telecommunications networks, have created a need for these organizations to modernize their monitoring, recording and processing capabilities. AUDIODISK provides a number of advantages over analog, tape recorder-based systems, including improvements in capacity, reliability, accuracy, processing efficiency and archiving and retrieval capabilities. Most importantly, AUDIODISK systems enable users to adapt efficiently to the emergence of new telecommunications technologies, such as digital transmission, ISDN and enhanced signaling systems, for which analog, tape recorder-based equipment was not designed.

Comverse Technology Inc., headquartered in Woodbury, designs, develops, manufactures and markets special purpose computer and telecommunications systems for a variety of communications processing applications, including telephone-accessed, multimedia messaging and information processing systems marketed under the name TRILOGUE(R) and multiple channel, multimedia digital recording systems marketed under the name AUDIODISK(TM).
