GRIFFIN NAMED DIRECTOR OF SOFTWARE ENGINEERING AT INTERACTIVE NETWORK

 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Interactive Network, (NASDAQ: INNN) the only home interactive television entertainment system currently in operation in the United States, announced the appointment of Don Griffin as director of software development. Formerly, the director of engineering at CAE-Link, Griffin will be responsible for overseeing all technical objectives surrounding the company's 1993 national roll-out.
 Griffin has had twenty years of engineering management and software development experience. In his 13 years with CAE-Link Flight Simulation Division, Griffin was responsible for the design, implementation and integration of large custom electronics systems and software used in flight trainers for such advanced aircraft as the U.S. Army's AH-64 Apache tactical combat helicopter, the Air Force's F-117 fighter and the B-2 bomber. Griffin also pioneered real-time software development for large scale, real-time computer graphics systems.
 Since 1987, Griffin managed CAE-Link engineers in hardware engineering, systems/program engineering, software engineering and product design for the development of digital image generation systems for sensor and out-the-window scenes simulation.
 As systems engineering manager, he directed systems and program engineers assigned to visual or sensor simulation projects and personally directed system integration of the prototype visual simulator for the Apache helicopter.
 Griffin will report to Dr. Robert Brown, vice president of Engineering. "Don Griffin is one of the most accomplished and innovative managers in the
business today," said Brown. "His grasp of complex real-time software brings added vision to an already superb team and we are extremely lucky to have this premier technician with us."
