SANYO CREATES STILL-PICTURE HDTV SOFTWARE

 NEW YORK, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ Small Cap: SANYY), the Japan-based world giant in electronics technology and manufacturing, today announced an agreement with the Art Institute of Chicago to create a series of short documentaries in still- picture high definition television (HDTV) format on works of art in the Art Institute's renowned permanent collection. Tentatively titled "Masterpieces from the Art Institute of Chicago," the series will include seven documentaries of seven-eight minutes playing time each, and will feature about 50 pieces of art.
 The series will examine works by such 19th and 20th century European masters as Eugene Delacroix, Pierre Auguste Renior, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, and Georges Seurat, representing the major artistic movements of Romanticism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism. The Art Institute's collection of Japanese wood block prints (ukiyo-e) -- by Harunobu Suzuki, for example -- will also be represented, examining the influence of Japanese art on the Impressionists. The birth of Modernism, both in Europe and the United States, will be documented as well.
 The software, recorded on disc, will be available in Japan by the end of 1993, and will be offered by SANYO for use at HiVision museums and at information centers run by Japanese municipalities, as well as for art education classes in schools and at trade shows.
 "We expect that this software will increase and accelerate the understanding of the high quality of high definition pictures and will promote sales of our HDTV equipment," said Dr. Joseph I. Nishimura, general manager of SANYO Electric's Audio-Video System Division.
 SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. is the largest supplier of high definition still-picture filing system in Japan.
