SPECTRUM BOOKS FIRST OEM ORDER FOR MULTIMEDIA PRODUCT; COMPANY REVEALS PRODUCT ROLL-OUT STRATEGY

 BURNABY, British Columbia, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: SSPIF; TSE and VSE: SSY) today announced it has received orders from a major computer manufacturer for delivery of Spectrum's new OfficeComm multimedia board. OfficeComm is the OEM version of Spectrums' ENVOY computer integrated telephony suite. The orders call for Spectrum to manufacture and supply OfficeComm in OEM quantities before the end of 1993. Included specifically in this agreement is Spectrum's new user interface software package, called "Aura," developed by Spectrum for its own multimedia board. Spectrum's customer has asked to remain unnamed for commercial confidentiality reasons.
 OfficeComm is a total desktop telecommunications tool combining computer integrated telephony, fax, modem, and sound card capability based on the IBM MWave technology platform. OfficeComm will feature an exclusive edition of OCTuS' (NASDAQ: OCTS) PTA (Personal Telecommunications Assistant) software. Spectrum today announced another companion software feature of OfficeComm from Smith Micro Software Inc., the market leader in high speed fax and modem software for the OEM market. The QUICKLINK II from Smith provides 9600 baud fax and V.32bis (14,400) modem. OfficeComm, through DSP technology, is completely programmable and as such can be enhanced and expanded through software upgrades, which Spectrum intends to supply. The product, which features audio capability, enables the user to voice annotate files and documents as never before and play full-featured network telegames.
 "This first order validates Spectrum's target market for its multimedia products, OfficeComm and ENVOY, and we expect to make further inroads into various OEM channels with this product," said Barry Jinks, Spectrum Signal Processing, Inc., president and CEO. "We expect the combined capabilities of Spectrum's DSP power, IBM's flexible MWave technology platform, OCTuS' superior computer integrated telephony, and Smith's proven fax/modem software will position Spectrum ENVOY as the premier small office/home office (SoHo) communications manager for the more than 20 million established SoHos in North America." Jinks added, "Further formal announcements on the ENVOY, including pricing and distribution details, will be made to the PC industry prior to year end."
 The Spectrum ENVOY will be showcased at the COMDEX trade show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Annex Pavilion, No. A1554, Nov. 15 to 19, 1993.
