Extreme CCTV Inc.: Obzerv Secures $2.5 Million in Orders for Seven ARGC-2400 Units

ARGC-2400's Long-Range Identification Required by Three Different Countries

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2007) - Extreme CCTV Inc. (TSX:EXC) announces that its strategic partner, Obzerv Technologies Inc., has secured three separate contracts for seven units of its ARGC-2400 long-range night vision camera. The contracts originate from three different countries and combined are valued at approximately $2.5 million.

Of the seven units, three units are destined for new applications in Japan and Spain. There, the ARGC-2400 long-range night vision cameras will serve from within evaluation programs to demonstrate how Obzerv's range-gated technology can improve mission efficiency for coastal and harbor security in national surveillance projects. Obzerv is also proud to announce that the remaining four ARGC-2400 units will be deployed at undisclosed locations in South East Asia as part of a repeat order.

In each project, the ARGC-2400 was specified for its outstanding performance in long range identification. Combining range-gated active-imaging with high power magnification, the ARGC-2400 quickly and positively identifies targets, enabling rapid threat assessments and minimizing response times.

In the South East Asia project, the ARGC-2400 cameras are currently integrated into existing surveillance systems for national security applications. The ARGC-2400 is used for capturing identification-level images while radar systems or thermal cameras fulfill detection-level imaging. The ARGC-2400 is also used to monitor long-range strategic locations such as ports, border crossings and bridges.

"Currently, the ARGC-2400 is the longest range night vision camera for extensive identification. It can identify letters of 40 cm at a distance up to 6 km at night and can operate in rain and snow conditions. In all the competitions organized by independent organizations, Obzerv's cameras have always significantly outperformed all other night vision cameras at the final identification task. While radar is widely used for the detection and location of unusual suspicious activity, the ARGC-2400 cameras are used to classify and identify those targets," says Mr. Deni Bonnier, President of Obzerv Technologies.

"Range-gating with active-infrared is now regarded as the most effective surveillance method for recognition and identification of vessels," says Jack Gin, President and CEO of Extreme CCTV. "While conventional technologies cannot read lettering from any distance, Obzerv's ARGC-2400 has an amazing ability to see and read at extreme distances even through night-time mist. These chasm-crossing orders are an indication that Obzerv's technology has arrived for maritime security."

Extreme CCTV holds a 31% equity interest in Obzerv by way of a convertible debenture.
