MDI to Provide Security Solutions for Wake County, N.C.

MDI system to provide unified security management for 60 building locations


SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MDI, Inc. (NASDAQ:MDII), the leading provider of Unified Technology solutions for the security industry, today announced that it has received a purchase order to provide products, engineering services and technical solutions for unified access control and alarm management at 60 critical locations within the Wake County Government system in North Carolina. At the customer's request, the value of the contract will remain undisclosed.

"We stated on March 29, 2007 that we expected to close four key deals in April related to our traditional MDI Security Systems products business. I am happy to announce that we have finalized orders on one of these contracts already and we expect to immediately begin providing the equipment and professional services required for the installation of this state-of-the-art security system. With the approval of our clients, we will strive to keep our stakeholders advised as we close key sales and business development transactions in the future," stated J. Collier Sparks, President and CEO of MDI.

The 23,000 card security system was chosen as an upgrade based on its ability to provide a unified access control and alarm management solution for Wake County's detention and corporate (non-detention) facilities. It will also act as a secondary detention alarm monitoring system while collecting and storing real-time access, scheduling and location validation for key personnel across county government facilities. As an open platform, the client was able to customize capabilities within the system to meet their specific needs, versus relying on "off the shelf" integrated systems that are not capable of customizing beyond their core feature-set.

With the MDI solution, the customer will benefit by upgrading to a unique "one card system" across all county facilities that is capable of granting access to credentialed personnel at any facility within the county government system, including photo verification, regardless of enrollment location or origination group.
