TrueVisions, Thailand's leading pay-TV Broadcaster, Chooses QuStream Cheetah XR Routing System

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2007) - 4 December 2007 - QuStream Corporation (TSX VENTURE:QVC) announces the completion of a major contract for TrueVisions, Thailand's leading pay-TV broadcaster. The project centres on a Cheetah 512XR multi-rate routing system configured with 224 x 224 SD and 32 x 32 HD crosspoints. An RCP-XY rotary control panel and RCP-TP touch control panel were also supplied, integrated with a TCD/RS programming and automation system. TrueVisions' order was received via Advanced Digital Technology Group, QuStream's Thai distributor, which is itself based on Bangkok.

"This is the first QuStream Cheetah installation in Thailand and represents a landmark order in our strategy of international expansion," comments QuStream's President and CEO Fred Godard. "The order is particularly gratifying given the very high reputation TrueVisions enjoys in south-east Asia, both for its technical standards and for the quality of its programme content. "

"The QuStream system is installed at TrueVisions' Bangkok headquarters and forms part of an expanded infrastructure designed to meet increasing demand for HD and SD television content," comments Karlton Burn, QuStream's Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. "When fully commissioned early in 2008, the Cheetah routing system will replace third-party analog devices and will support new HD and SD channels."

Introduced in 2006, the QuStream Cheetah 512XR is a large-scale router with low power consumption, SDI, ASI, and HD-SDI signal support, optical fiber input and output ports plus a range of optional integral conversion cards. The Cheetah 512XR is available with 128 optional outputs for in-frame signal conversion. Up to 16 channels per option card enable complete signal-path customization. Users requiring down conversion from HD to SDI or from digital to analog can deploy QuStream Viewport software to configure each signal path for processing from HD to SDI or from digital to analog. The HD-to-SDI conversion option card features letterbox or crop mode, 4:3 safe-zone overlay and an autosend feature for sending signals without conversion.
