nVIEW READY TO SHIP PRODUCT BEFORE PRICES INCREASE; ECONOMIC, SUPPLY FACTORS AFFECT PROJECTION DISPLAY INDUSTRY

 NEWPORT NEWS, Va., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to recent developments in the electronics industry and world economic markets, nVIEW Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: NVUE) announced today an increase in the prices of its active-matrix liquid-crystal display (AMLCD) projection products. Until the new prices take effect July 1, however, the company has guaranteed delivery -- at current prices -- from a $3.6 million finished goods inventory.
 Effective July 1, the Luminator projector will retail for $12,595, the MediaPro projection panel for $8,595, and the ViewFrame Spectra C panel for $5,595, increases of 14.6 percent, 7.5 percent and 12 percent, respectively. Despite the increases, nVIEW believes its award-winning products remain cost-competitive with other manufacturers' models.
 For all orders placed in June with June delivery, current prices will remain in effect. The company will also price protect purchases for June delivery in the unlikely event that stock runs low.
 "We feel nVIEW is in a good position to cope with the industry's expected shortages," said company President and CEO William Donaldson. "We currently have $3.6 million in finished goods inventory. Therefore, we are confident we can accommodate orders that result from this advance notice of price increases."
 Fluctuations in the value of the Japanese yen, as well as worldwide constraints in supplies of many components used to manufacture LCD projection products, particularly active-matrix LCDs, have caused nVIEW to re-evaluate its pricing structure for AMLCD products. These issues have been widely covered in recent press reports regarding the manufacture of lap-top and notebook computers using AMLCDs.
 Preliminary response from the field indicates that resellers appreciate the advance notice, which gives them the opportunity to take advantage of nVIEW's current prices on available inventory as the industry enters a period of constrained supply.
 nVIEW's line of LCD projection products has accumulated an award history unmatched in the industry, including the prestigious Editors' Choice award for "Best New Display Product, 1992" (Luminator) from MacUser Magazine. MacUser also awarded four-and-a-half mice -- its highest rating -- to the Luminator (June 1993 issue), calling the projector "our favorite LCD product." The MediaPro projection panel won MacWorld Magazine's Editor's Choice Award (January 1993 issue), and the Readers' Choice Award from Presentation Products magazine (December 1992 issue). The Spectra C projection panel won the Editor's Choice Award, Computer Reseller News (Feb. 8, 1993, issue).
 nVIEW products are distributed through a worldwide network of authorized dealers and distributors, and will be on display at PC EXPO, June 29-July 1 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, and at the National Education Computing Conference at Marriott's Orlando World Center, June 27-30.
