VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Aug. 23, 2007) - Extreme CCTV Inc. (TSX:EXC) today announces sales success of its Moondance pan-tilt-zoom camera in China.
Extreme's innovative Moondance camera, which is branded as Forward Vision's Mic1-400 "Metal Mickey" in China, has been recently specified for several prestigious security projects. In a notable critical infrastructure application, the cameras will be used at one of China's major nuclear power plants for surveillance at critical zones. In a transportation security project, the Mic1-400 is providing video imaging capability for a 3.5G wireless CCTV system for mobile surveillance linked to video analytics, a project administered by the Hong Kong Transport Department. As well, the Mic1-400 is providing key surveillance imaging capability in event monitoring applications for the Hong Kong Legislative Council.
Each of the projects were administered by Tung Po Hong Kong Company, the system integration partner for Forward Vision in the China market. Tung Po serves high level end-users in government and commercial security applications, integrating mainly North American or European products field-proven for performance, quality and integrity. Tung Po's market position supports Moondance's high performance brand equity, established after years of being specified for critical security applications throughout the UK.
The sales success of the Metal Mickey in China marks an important development in Extreme's mandate to grow sales of Forward Vision products in China's security market. "We are seeing signs of growing market acceptance in every region where we are promoting Moondance," says Jack Gin, President and CEO of Extreme CCTV. "We will continue to leverage Moondance's field-proven reputation as Britain's finest pan-tilt-zoom camera to address the growing global demand for high performance surveillance products."
