SYMBOL TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES FIRST LASER-BASED BAR CODE VERIFIER TO READ
 POSTAL SERVICE'S POSTNET
 BOHEMIA, N.Y., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies Inc. (NYSE: SBL), the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems, today introduced the Symbol LC 2912, the first laser-based portable bar code verifier with the ability to read Postnet, the proprietary bar code of the United States Postal Service.
 The new product is being unveiled and demonstrated this week in Chicago at ID Expo, a major trade show and exhibition for the automatic identification marketplace.
 The LC 2912 is designed to meet the needs of Postnet users -- direct mail houses, credit card companies, regional post offices and other companies involved with mass mailings -- that require an inexpensive and simple method to read Postnet bar codes in order to verify the data. The LC 2912 is one of a number of Symbol products to service Postnet verification.
 The Symbol LC 2912 reads and decodes Postnet and provides the data in either human readable format displayed on the terminal or transmitted to a host computer.
 The postal service offers users converting to Postnet a discount incentive of 5 cents per letter. That could amount to annual savings of tens of thousands of dollars for mass mailers. The postal service demands that the bar codes be accurate and readable to earn the discount.
 "Bar code accuracy and the elimination of dead letters are key to postal service efficiency," said Sal Cali, vice president, Symbology Products and Services, Symbol Technologies. "The postal service's high- speed scanner/sorters are reading thousands of pieces of mail per hour and if the Postnet code is inaccurate or the symbol is unreadable, it's a dead letter that has to be processed manually."
 The LC 2912 will be available in September. The list price is $2,995. Like other Symbol verification products designed to aid users in determining bar code quality problems, the LC 2912 is lightweight, compact and easy to use and includes an RS-232C port for easy data transfer to the host computer.
 Symbol Technologies is the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems with nearly two million scanners and terminals installed. The company designs, manufactures and markets bar code reading equipment, portable data terminals and radio frequency data communications products which are used as strategic building blocks in technology systems for retailing, package and parcel delivery, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, healthcare and other industries.
