Extreme CCTV Inc.: US Maximum Security Facility Goes Extreme; EX36 Infrared Camera Now Holds US Patent

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 21, 2005) - Extreme CCTV Inc. (TSX:EXC), the security industry's leading supplier of active-infrared night vision surveillance equipment, announces that the highest security prison in the USA has placed an order for seventy-five EX36 Prison Cell Cameras. This maximum-security facility houses the most violent convicts in the nation - offenders that require the tightest controls possible. Also called the Seclusion Cell camera, the EX36 was recently awarded a US patent, and is already in use at numerous corrections facilities worldwide, including one notorious prison in Iraq.

The unique design of the vandal-resistant EX36, which allows for secure placement into the upper corner of a room, abutting two walls and a ceiling, is partly why it received its patent. Unlike conventional cameras, the EX36 design ensures no grip or anchor points, preventing the camera from being torn off its supporting walls. Additionally, the design helps protect at-risk individuals from suicide attempts, making the EX36 an ideal camera for prison cells, seclusion cells and psychiatric wards.

"The EX36 camera became invaluable to the corrections industry after an inmate successfully sued for damages after a botched suicide attempt," says Jack Gin, President and CEO of Extreme CCTV. "These cameras are here to protect both the inmate and the correctional authority. Market opportunities for the EX36 also include police interrogation rooms and holding cells for liability prevention against false injury claims."

Featuring 1/4" Lexan plate windows, the EX36 is the indestructible camera of choice for prison authorities throughout the world. Its wide field of view and 45 degree tilt enables it to monitor an entire 9x15 foot room, including underneath the camera itself. The EX36MNX version is a color/monochrome camera with excellent performance under both visible lighting and infrared illumination, and is specified for use by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The US Federal Bureau of Prisons comprises over 100 facilities, housing over 180,000 inmates. The EX36 is also installed in jails and prisons in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries.
