Intel and CRN Announce SAM Intelligent IP Video Winner of "Most Innovative Server Solution"

WARREN, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2006 -- SAM Systems, Inc., today announced receipt of the "Most Innovative Server Solution" Award from Intel Corporation and CRN (Computer Reseller News) at the annual Intel Summit 2006.

The Innovative Server Solution Award recognizes the significant contribution made to the video industry by SAM Systems video delivery technology, as demonstrated in the SAM Core3 and SAM Clarity products. Intel Corporation has participated with CRN through these awards to promote innovation within the computer, networking, and communications reseller industry.

SAM Systems was chosen because of its unique ability to dramatically reduce bandwidth while improving video quality through software. SAM's patent-pending technology -- Network Video Tunneling and Adaptive Video Resolution -- are considered "enabling technologies" because they eliminate the bandwidth barrier to delivery of high resolution video in real-time via the Internet. This breakthrough moves the video monitoring and surveillance industry forward because it enhances the ability of existing products such as high resolution cameras to deliver on their full potential. In addition, video management system vendors can now upgrade their product offerings through integration of the SAM IP Video technology.

When the award from Intel Corporation and CRN was announced, Gene Thomas, Founder & CEO of SAM Systems, commented that "This award validates SAM's strategy to use Intel Servers, which provide a standards-based platform for our software-based video delivery solution."
