PICTURETEL AWARDED ISO-9002 CERTIFICATION

 DANVERS, Mass., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- PictureTel Corporation (NASDAQ: PCTL) today announced it has received International Standards Organization (ISO) 9002 certification. ISO-9002 is a system model for quality assurance relating to production and installation operations and is one of several prestigious ISO-9000 Quality Management System standards that have been adopted by the European Community (EC) to assure consistent quality and reliability throughout a wide range of products and services.
 PictureTel Vice President of Operations, Jeffrey E. Shaw, on April 16, was presented with ISO-9002 certification credentials by Tom Quinn, managing director of certification & registration for the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
 "It is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to be successful selling goods and services that are not ISO-certified," said Shaw. "We're extremely proud that PictureTel has measured up to the demanding standards of the ISO-9002 certification process. It acknowledges our long-standing commitment to provide the best quality in both products and service throughout the global market."
 "In addressing an ever expanding customer base, PictureTel has correctly identified the quality of its products and services as being absolutely central in providing the competitive edge," said Quinn. "I know that PictureTel has an unrelenting approach to the quality challenge and this presentation represents an important milestone in that strategy."
 ISO-9000 was developed by the ISO, headquartered in Geneva, and is a consistent set of quality benchmarks designed to promote the development of worldwide quality standards that improve operating efficiency and productivity as well as reduce manufacturing costs. Forty countries have adopted ISO-9000 certification as their official quality measure.
 To achieve the ISO-9002 level of certification, a company must implement a comprehensive and thorough program of internal quality audits and training, as well as demonstrate the effective use of statistical process controls.
