Sentry Technology Signs $770,000 Contract

RONKONKOMA, N.Y. , May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sentry Technology Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SKVY) announced today, the signing of a contract to install comprehensive SentryVision(R) SmartTrack(TM) video surveillance and operational management systems in 8 locations of one of the world's largest courier companies. SmartTrack traveling systems are at the heart of the total solution that transmits video information over the customer's internal network via the SentryVision(R) Video Server. The system is designed to monitor package flow through the facilities while observing potential security threats. All sites are scheduled for completion by the end of May.

SmartTrack(TM) uses patented technology to transmit video images from one or two pan, tilt and zoom cameras traveling along an aluminum rail mounted on the ceiling. The camera carriage travels at high speeds and provides unobstructed views of people, goods and processes.

"We continue to have success with our OperationalVideo(TM) concept," said Peter L. Murdoch , President and CEO of Sentry Technology Corporation. "Providing operational controls in addition to safety and security using the same video system just makes sense. The return on investment is achieved much sooner and many more departments within an organization benefit from seeing the business real-time, instead of via printed reports after the fact."

Sentry Technology Corporation designs, manufactures, sells and installs a complete line of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) solutions, Electro-Magnetic (EM) and RFID based Library Management systems as well as Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Magnetic (EM) EAS systems. The CCTV product line features SentryVision(R), SmartTrack, a proprietary, patented traveling Surveillance System. The Company's products are used by libraries to secure inventory and improve operating efficiency, by retailers to deter shoplifting and internal theft and by industrial and institutional customers to protect assets and people.
