 SISCOM ANNOUNCES NEWSPRO(TM) SALES TO RAINBOW NEWS 12
 AND CALGARY TELEVISION
 BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Satellite Information Systems Co. (SISCOM) (OTC: SATI), developer of NewsPro(TM) broadcast newsroom automation systems, today announced two contracts to provide Rainbow News 12, of Woodbury, N.Y. and Calgary Television (CKKX-TV), of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with NewsPro systems. Terms were not disclosed.
 Rainbow News 12, a division of Cablevision, provides 24-hour regional cable news to the Long Island, N.Y. region. The system provided to Rainbow, which will initially support 48 users, includes twin Digital Equipment Corporation CPUs, script and utility printers, editorial and production control and SISCOM's extensive archive capabilities. An automated election reporting capability is also scheduled for inclusion in the configuration.
 Janet Alshouse, executive producer for Rainbow News 12, chaired the procurement. "Following several months of research and investigation, we concluded that NewsPro was the best newsroom automation system available to suit our needs," said Alshouse. "The search capability of this product is phenomenal, and the service provided has been excellent."
 "Regional cable news operations represent a growing high profile segment of the news industry, and Rainbow and their parent Cablevision are at the forefront of this segment," said Bob Turner, SISCOM's director of marketing. "News 12 has an aggressive rollout planned for the new system, and we're pleased to be a part of it."
 Calgary Television, a member of the WIC Group, is the fourth station within this group to purchase a NewsPro system. They join sister stations in Vancouver, Victoria and Lethbridge.
 The Calgary Television system, which will initially support 36 users, includes dual Digital Equipment Corporation CPUs, script and utility printers, editorial and production control, dual prompters and a closed captioning sub-system, which will be a first in their market. The system, scheduled for installation early in 1992, is part of a complete renovation of CKKX's newsroom.
 "The selection of SISCOM by the Calgary Television, extending the number of WIC users to four, represents a tremendous endorsement of the SISCOM approach," said Turner.
 SISCOM's NewsPro automates the editorial and production control aspects of broadcast news operations and provides information management facilities for use by organizations in the print media, public affairs, press relations and image industries.
 SISCOM, with 25 installations worldwide, has customers affiliated with all three major networks as well as cable-based television, radio broadcasters and independent broadcast organizations.
