C-COM Announces New High Performance Antenna Controller and 24 Month Standard Product Warranty

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2008) - C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CMI) announced today at Satellite 2008 in Washington DC (exhibit area # 276) the availability of a new high performance satellite antenna controller for its iNetVu Mobile antennas as well as a standard 24 month warranty for all of its auto-pointing antenna systems it manufactures.

The new 7000 Series controller which is based on a Motorola 32 bit Microprocessor running embedded software solution is designed to deliver fast and highly accurate satellite signal acquisition at a touch of a button. The 7000 controller will be able to support all modems presently supported by iNetVu systems and has been designed to support both DVB-S and DVB-S2 modulation standards offering the option to acquire satellite independently of modem. The controller has passed the required FCC, CE and Safety Standards allowing it to be sold around the world.

C-COM is also announcing at this time that all of its products sold as of March 1st, 2008 will come with a standard 24 month warranty rather than the industry norm which is 12 months.

"We are very pleased to be able to introduce at Satellite 2008 these significant industry first developments. The 7000 controller represents a significant advance in auto-pointing antenna technology and we expect all iNetVu Mobile customers to benefit from its many new features, its ease of use and superior diagnostic capabilities.

The iNetVu Mobile antennas systems have performed so well in field use over the years and have proven to be so reliable that we feel confident to extend a full 24 month warranty on all C-COM manufactured products. We believe that this industry first offering will benefit many of our customers and allow them to reduce their operating expenses and at the same time increase their confidence in purchasing iNetVu Mobile antenna systems" said Leslie Klein, president and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems.
