Extreme CCTV Announces Mobile License Plate Reader for
Law Enforcement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 11, 2005) - Extreme
CCTV Inc. (TSX:EXC) the security industry's leading supplier of active
infrared night vision surveillance equipment, announces the development
of an intelligent mobile license-plate detection system designed for use
in policing, stolen-car searches, parking enforcement and Homeland
Security. Developed over a two year period through the research and
development arm of Extreme CCTV International, the mobile system was
inspired after meetings at RCMP headquarters in Ottawa to help combat

The system, known as RX-M1, is capable of detecting license plates from
a targeted "hot-list" under any ambient light conditions. RX-M1 is a
compact system that mounts directly onto police vehicles, allowing law
enforcement agencies to search for stolen vehicles while performing
routine neighborhood patrols. RX-M1 outputs real-time alarms upon
positive matches against the "hot list" so that authorities can take
immediate action.

"Proactive police forces need to catch stolen vehicles with their
drivers in them, rather than after they are abandoned," says Jack Gin,
CEO of Extreme CCTV Inc.

The RX-M1 has already been successfully tested in the USA. In Arizona,
police authorities that trial-tested the RX-M1 found a stolen vehicle
within 15 minutes of using the system. At a university in California,
traffic enforcement authorities located so many wanted vehicles that
they depleted their supply of restraining boots on the first day of

The RX-M1 is founded on the stationary version REG-ALERT™ license
plate reading system that was first installed at a major Las Vegas hotel
a year ago. That system has since identified hundreds of targeted
vehicles. Government agencies are working there to identify license
plates belonging to individuals on the Homeland Security terrorist watch
lists. Since the installation of that system, two individuals on the
terrorist watch list have been apprehended.

"Our engineers in Canada, the USA and the UK have collaborated
brilliantly to produce another world class market-making product," says
Gin. "We are inviting all law enforcement agencies to test this
important technology that has outstanding performance and global

The RX-M1 will be publicly unveiled at the International Security
Conference in Las Vegas (ISC West) on April 6, 2005 where a press
conference will be held to announce further details.
