QuStream Corporation: All Mobile Video Outfits Newest HD Mobile Production Unit With PESA Routing Systems

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 27, 2005) - QuStream Corporation ("QuStream") (TSX VENTURE:QVC) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary PESA, a leading provider of analog and digital video and audio equipment for broadcast applications, today announced that New York City-based All Mobile Video has purchased an extensive array of PESA routing equipment for integration into its newest mobile production truck, an 53-foot expando unit designed for HD operation. The new PESA systems will provide reliable and versatile signal routing during HD production of live sports and entertainment event coverage.

The order includes two 256x256 Cheetah HD digital routing switchers; a TDM3000 large-scale audio routing switcher configured for 256x192 audio, 336x336 AES, and 32x32 timecode support; an Ocelot 8x8 multirate routing switcher configured as a transmission router; and more than 50 remote control panels.

PESA routing equipment is known for providing reliable performance and delivering the functionality required in a compact form factor. Both digital and analog video and audio routing systems from PESA are currently operational in "Crossroads," All Mobile Video's double-sided expando designed to facilitate easier access in tight spaces without compromising on features.

"The challenge with mobile trucks, especially the leading-edge units from All Mobile Video, is that the routing equipment has to be as compact as possible, it has to meet the highest quality standards, and it has to be totally reliable because any failure or downtime on the road is just not an option," said Bob McAlpine, senior vice president of sales and marketing at PESA. "PESA routing systems have been designed to meet the needs of even the most rugged mobile broadcast environments, and we look forward to seeing this newest truck hit the road."
