 PICTURETEL ANNOUNCES GLOBAL USER GROUP FORMATION;
 INAUGURAL CONFERENCE TO BE HELD NOVEMBER 11-13 IN BOSTON
 DANVERS, Mass., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- PictureTel Corporation, the leading provider of videoconferencing equipment and services, today announced the formation of its Global User Group. This action follows the creation of PictureTel's seven member Executive User Committee which took place in June 1992. The inaugural meeting of the User Group will take place in Boston, November 11-13, 1992.
 The primary purpose of the group is to create a strong working partnership between PictureTel and its customers by working through the company's business lines to obtain customer input to the development process from the beginning, according to Norman E. Gaut, president and CEO of PictureTel.
 "Our success depends on being a customer-driven company with customer driven research and development," said Gaut. "In a rapidly- changing marketplace, we must be able to identify our customers' needs and concerns very quickly. The User Group empowers our customers to help PictureTel shape its technology direction, as well as giving us timely feedback on how we are meeting their needs today."
 The inaugural conference will be moderated by the seven Executive Committee members. Members of the Executive Committee include representatives from: Du Pont, Metropolitan Life, JC Penney, Motorola, Allergan Inc. and Monsanto.
 Remote access to selected portions of the one and a half day conference will be made possible through PictureTel's videoconferencing capabilities. Al Lill, Gartner Group consultant and PictureTel customer will provide the key note address, leading customers will present their newest applications and PictureTel executives will present the company's strategic focus. A business meeting will be held to elect officers, adopt bylaws and formally establish the group.
 The fee for attending the founding conference is $295. Attendance is open to all PictureTel customers. Membership fees will be established at the conference. For additional information about the User Group or the conference, call 617-235-1167.
