Boston, MA, February 14, 1997 - Zoom Telephonics, a
leading manufacturer of computer communications equipment,
is now shipping the Zoom® ComStar XT SVD external speakerphone/faxmodem
for PC-compatible and Macintosh computers. The ComStar XT
SVD combines a full-featured 33,600 bps V.34 modem, AudioSpan™

14,400 bps fax, voice mail, speed dialer, plus support for
the ITU H.324 videophone standard.
XT SVD is ideal for home or small office use," said Terry
Manning, Zoom's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The
SVD feature is perfect for application sharing, whiteboarding,
and interactive game playing. With SVD, users can send data
and talk at the same time when connected to another SVD modem."
The ComStar XT SVD external features serial Plug-and-Play
compatibility for fast installation and provides extended
status reporting with 14 indicator lights. Internal ComStar
SVD products are also available for PC-compatible computers.
All ComStar models include a high-quality external microphone
and speaker, and all necessary software.
The new Zoom/Link™
CD-ROM, which contains over 425 megabytes of software, is
included with the PC version of the ComStar XT SVD. Zoom/Link

services software, modem-enabled games, advanced telephony
applications, support information, and more. It features an
attractive graphical user interface for easy, intuitive navigation.
The ComStar XT SVD and all other Zoom SVD products include
VoiceView® compatibility, Distinctive Ring to automatically
discriminate data, voice, and fax calls, Caller ID, and ZoomGuard™

modem failure. Recent results from an independent lab demonstrate
that ZoomGuard is superior to the MOVs (metal oxide varistors)
used in competing modems.
