DALLAS, TEXAS, U.S.A., 1995 FEB 14 (NB) -- Camelot Corp. (NASDAQ:
CAML) has announced a software package that permits full duplexing
of voice over the Internet. The company says the program makes it
possible for PC users with an Internet connection to conduct
real-time worldwide voice communications for the cost of a local
phone call.

The software, called Personal Internet Companion Kit (PICK), will be
published by Third Planet Publishing, a subsidiary of Camelot Corp.
and will have a suggested retail price of $99.95. It will ship on
CD-ROM and floppy disk.


System requirements to use PICK include a 9,600 bits-per-second
(bps) or higher modem, a PC powered by at least a 33 Megahertz (MHz)
386 chip, four megabytes (MB) of system memory, a multimedia sound
card, a microphone, speakers and local Internet connection. PICK is
scheduled to ship in the second quarter.
