 PICTURETEL NAMED LOTUS NOTES ALLIANCE PARTNER
 DANVERS/CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- PictureTel


Corporation (NASDAQ: PCTL) and Lotus Development Corporation (NASDAQ: LOTS) today announced that PictureTel has been named a Lotus Notes Alliance Partner. Under the terms of this alliance, PictureTel will integrate its proven dial-up videoconferencing capabilities with the popular Lotus Notes(tm) application to provide users with the ability to add live visual communications capabilities to Lotus' workgroup computing environment. Both PictureTel and Lotus have exchanged technology under the terms of the agreement.
 At its newly opened Application Showcase Center, PictureTel recently demonstrated its first phase of video integration with the Notes application. Using these integrated features, a user is able to dial a videoconference with the Notes application. Product availability and pricing have not been announced.
 "Lotus currently leads the field in workgroup communication with more than 250,000 Lotus Notes users around the world. Many of these customers have asked for live video capabilities," said Chris Herot, director, Lotus Advanced Technology.
 "We believe that PictureTel's leading videoconferencing technology coupled with Lotus Notes' comprehensive computing capability perfectly meets that demand," Herot added.
 "PictureTel is building a fully compatible family of videoconferencing products for the desktop. An extremely important part of that effort is the ability to integrate our capabilities with software applications," said Marty Falaro, director, desktop business line. "Lotus represents the leader in workgroup software, and that makes PictureTel, the leader in dial-up videoconferencing, a natural partner to integrate these two powerful communications tools."
