FIRST NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF VIDEOPHONE USERS TO BE PUBLISHED

 RIDGEWOOD, N.J., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- VideoPhone owners looking to connect with other users will soon have a phone directory of their own. The VideoPhone Age(TM) Directory, to be published later this year, will provide free listings to all business and residential videophone owners.
 The directory harkens back to the earliest days of the telephone itself, when buyers of the newfangled gadgets first gained the ability to place the phone calls, but didn't know whom to call.
 Today's videophone owners face much the same dilemma. Since the phones went on sale in early 1992, thousands of pioneering individuals and businesses have purchased the phones in anticipation of their eventual widespread use. Nevertheless, many videophone owners have expressed a sense of frustration at not knowing who else has the ability to video communicate with them.
 This frustration is particularly in evidence when it comes to businesses that provide services related to the videophones. "What good is it to offer the service," many have asked, "if videophone users aren't aware that you are providing it?"
 The VideoPhone Age Directory is intended to put an end to the frustrations of these early owners. The directory will allow business and residential users to obtain the full potential of their videophones by putting users in easy view of one another.
 Listings in the directory will be made available free-of-charge to owners of all makes of videophones. In addition, the directory will offer free listings to personal computer owners who have the ability to transmit and receive videophone calls through their computers.
 To be included in the 1993-1994 directory, videophone owners must submit their full name, address, company name (if applicable), videophone number and videophone make (AT&T, MCI, etc.) to The VideoPhone Age Directory at P.O. Box 139, Ridgewook, NJ 07451-0139. VideoPhone users may also register by faxing this information to 201-444-5919, or by contacting VideoPhone Age via E-Mail on CompuServe (70253,2171) or Prodigy (AXCU39A).
 Businesses interested in placing display advertisements in the directory should contact Dean Rotbart, publisher, or Jane Reilly, associate publisher, at VideoPhone Age, 201-444-6061 (voice only) or 201-445-3473 (AT&T VideoPhone).
 Only owners who volunteer to be included in the directory will be listed. Registered videophone owners will not automatically be included, but must re-register directly with VideoPhone Age.
 The VideoPhone Age Directory is an independently owned service of VideoPhone Age and is not affiliated with the makers of videophones or with other phone directory publishers.
