Even Technologies Announces Successful Completion of Phase 1 IPTV System at Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - Even Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ETI) is pleased to announce that Infinite Video Corporation has completed Phase One of the IPTV system testing at Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative Corporation ("Twin Lakes").

Successful testing of the IPTV system will enable Twin Lakes to deliver Video over IP and other IPTV services over the existing Twin Lakes network. By integrating Even Technologies' PSI™ Video Codec and the dme™ Video over IP system, Twin Lakes can introduce broadcast TV over DSL, Video on Demand (VOD) and other advanced video services to their subscribers.

The solution is technologically advanced in that it will allow Twin Lakes to deploy IPTV without upgrading the outside plant currently in place. Robert Saunders, of Infinite Video Corporation, says, "The IPTV System will put Twin Lakes in a position to deliver a profitable IPTV solution created for the Telco space."

Wayne Gassaway, Twin Lakes' General Manager, reiterates, "After looking at the Infinite Video IPTV system, we came to the conclusion that it offered both a technically and economically superior solution that nothing else on the market could provide."

Twin Lakes, one of the largest telephone cooperatives in the USA, has completed the first testing phase of the end-to-end solution for Twin Lakes to deliver broadcast TV and new media services to their customers. The Infinite Video solution provides encoding, middleware and web features designed to deliver very low bit-rate video for streaming applications.

Even Technologies' advanced compression solutions enable telephone companies like Twin Lakes to deliver standard definition television at 750kbps and high definition television at 3Mbps.
