IMAGERY, LOTUS COLLABORATION BEARS NEW FRUIT; LN:DI RELEASE 2 EXPANDS ON CAPABILITIES OF INDUSTRY'S FIRST IMAGE-ENABLED PRODUCT

 CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagery Software, Inc. today announced it has collaborated with Lotus Development Corporation to develop Lotus Notes: Document Imaging (LN:DI) Release 2, previewed here at AIIM, the imaging industry's largest tradeshow and conference. LN:DI Release 2 expands on the capabilities of LN:DI Release 1, the industry's first "image-enabled" product, allowing users to seamlessly and cost- effectively integrate paper and fax images into their Notes applications.
 LN:DI Release 2 builds on its successor's black and white image capture, manipulation, storage and display capabilities, adding support for color and gray-scale images. It features support for Eastman Kodak Company's Photo CD file format, enabling users to capture and display high-resolution color photographs from CD-ROM media. The new version also adds TWAIN Acquire commands, giving users the choice of either LN:DI's scanning user interface or those provided by scanner vendors.
 The new release supports OS/2 1.3 and OS/2 2.0 servers as well as Windows 3.0 and 3.1 clients. It includes support for Microsoft's Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) specification which will allow users to access LN:DI's imaging functionality using standard Windows commands. LN:DI Release 2 also takes full advantage of Imagery's hierarchical storage technology in the Notes Mass Storage Subsystem (MSS). Large quantities of image files can now be stored on diverse media and automatically migrated from one device to another. Users can optimize the system to suit the price and performance of their storage media.
 "Imagery and Lotus were the first to bring a cost-effective, desktop imaging product to market," said Steve Conkling, Imagery's president and CEO. "Users' response to LN:DI has been overwhelmingly positive as they find the ability to capture and access paper images within Notes as easily as accessing their mail messages. We will continue to build on the success of our relationship with Lotus, providing users with a robust desktop imaging capability on a powerful platform: Notes."
 In 1991, Imagery (a Kodak subsidiary) and Lotus set a new course for the industry by announcing their intent to bring to market a low-cost, image-enabled version of Lotus Notes. The image-enabling concept and the subsequent LN:DI product have prompted a radical change in the electronic treatment of paper-based images. Previously, paper-based information could only be processed electronically by expensive, back- room, production level systems. Now, knowledge workers are cost- effectively integrating images -- whether it be fax, photographs or paper -- into Notes applications. Functions such as human resource, product development, client tracking, customer service, sales and marketing desktop applications have significantly improved their productivity and effectiveness. Using LN:DI, images are assessed quickly and easily, enhancing the information they accompany and making critical information available at the desktop.
 LN:DI Release 2 is compatible with Lotus Notes Release 2.1 and the upcoming Notes Release 3. Together with the Lotus Notes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) server, and Lotus Notes Outbound and Inbound Fax Gateways, LN:DI Release 2 provides a powerful and complete imaging solution.
