SENSIO® Signs a First Contract for the Integration of its Technology Into a 3D TV Designed by Kerner Optical R&D

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2007) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO") (TSX VENTURE:SIO), the inventor of the SENSIO®3D technology, announces that its technology will be integrated for the very first time into a 3D television intended for the consumer market. "We are extremely pleased with this milestone agreement we just reached with Kerner Optical Research and Development Corporation ("KORD"). The signature of this first contract falls within the timeline we had set and is the result of our efforts aimed at integrating our technology into a mass consumption device", explains Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO.

This recently entered into agreement will allow KORD to integrate the SENSIO®3D technology into the new LCD HD SpectronIQ television, as well as the JVC 2D to 3D real-time conversion technology, for which SENSIO obtained a license in October 2006. The new television is currently being developed as per a contract between KORD and SpectronIQ. This agreement follows the Letter of Intent announced last June, which expressed KORD's interest for the SENSIO®3D technology.

"We are thrilled to be working with SENSIO, the only company currently offering a full 3D home theater solution. The quality of the 3D presentation, combined with their diversified content offering, prove that SENSIO is well on track to becoming a true standard on the market", says Mark Anderson, KORD's President and Chief Executive Officer.

For his part, Mr. Routhier is very happy to be partnering with industry leader KORD to make 3D theater more accessible at home. "KORD's creativity and sense of innovation are undeniable assets for the development of the 3D home theater market."

This first commercial success will generate recurring incomes for SENSIO, as the contract provides for a base amount, as well as royalties on every unit sold.
