Sentry Technology Installs OperationalVideo(TM) in a Major Retailer

RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sentry Technology Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SKVY) announced today, the signing of a contract for a trial installation of SentryVision(R) SmartTrack(TM) traveling CCTV systems including OperationalVideo(TM) in one of America's largest retailers, valued at approximately $100,000. The customer has more than 4,000 stores and expects to use OperationalVideo(TM) as a tool to provide improved information for business managers. OperationalVideo(TM) delivers real-time images over the internet to help control safety and security as well as remote viewing of store operations, merchandising, signage, displays, pricing and employee procedure compliance.

Managers will have access to all store operations from the home office, regional offices and any other fixed or mobile location equipped with an internet connection. As well, security personnel are able to walk the floor interacting with staff and customers while maintaining control of the SmartTrack(TM) system using a wireless PDA. Video is managed via the SentryVision(R) Server, a network device that provides real-time remote viewing and user passwords to manage hierarchal control of the system.

"Managing retail operations using video is a new market that will be a multi-billion dollar segment of the security industry and OperationalVideo(TM) is gaining traction as a leading solution," said Peter L. Murdoch, President and CEO of Sentry Technology Corporation. "We are encouraged to be installing systems in a second major retailer this month. Developing in-store applications for SmartTrack(TM) such as OperationalVideo(TM) dramatically increases the size of our target market compared to traditional installations in distribution centers alone. OperationalVideo(TM) for this single customer is a multi-million dollar opportunity."

The CCTV product line features SentryVision(R), SmartTrack(TM), a proprietary, patented traveling Surveillance System.
