DSI Chooses QuStream Routers for Korean HD Production and Presentation Centre

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - QuStream Corporation (TSX VENTURE:QVC) has received a major order for video and audio routing equipment to be installed at a new HD production and presentation centre in South Korea. The contract was placed by Diversified Systems, recently acclaimed as one of the top five broadcast systems integrators in the USA.

"The new centre will form part of the main conference facilities at the Samsung Group headquarters in the capital city, Seoul," explains Kevin Collins, Diversified Systems' COO. "A key requirement was the ability to distribute multiple HD and DVI sources throughout the facility and allow Samsung subsidiaries in various parts of the world to view shared content at HD resolutions. A critical requirement was the ability to maintain the highest resolution at all points in the system. The distance limitations of traditional Dual Link DVI cables being short at about 15 ft maximum length created design challenges. Qustream's solution allowed us to route full resolution HD and DVI plus stereo analog audio without incurring any significant distance limitations. Another important benefit was the scalability of QuStream equipment which will allow the routing infrastructure to be expanded easily as and when required. We installed a router from QuStream's PESA range for Samsung in 2005 and it has performed well."

"This new multi-million dollar installation is an outstanding example of the way in which full broadcast-quality HD television is being harnessed by international companies to provide corporate communication and training for their overseas divisions," adds Karlton Burn, QuStream's Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. "The expanded router installation comprises two QuStream Cheetah 128NE frames, one Jaguar 64 X 64 stereo audio matrix and a Cougar 32 x 32 Stereo Audio Matrix. One of the two Cheetah 128NE frames will be configured as 64 X 64HD W/ 32 SFP fiber in with 32SFP fiber out. The second 128NE frame will comprise 80 X 80HD W/ 80 SFP Fiber in and 80SFP Fiber Out. A full set of accessories and spares will be provided for all four matrices."

QuStream's Cheetah V5-DVI modules are used to terminate the HD and DVI video and stereo audio throughout the facility. Construction of the new system is currently in progress, scheduled for completion in September 2008.
