QuStream Corporation: PESA Wins Major Order Under GSA Contract

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 3, 2005) -

Routing System Order Valued in Excess of US$600,000

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, today announced that it has received a major order this month from a U.S. government organization under their GSA contract. The order, which is valued in excess of US$600,000, includes a 128x128 Cheetah routing system with 128 Cheetah V5 RGBHV extenders that allow incoming high-resolution RGBHV analog video sources to be converted to digital and then distributed to native RGBHV destination over both coax and fiber-optic cable. The routing matrix is housed in a 10-RU Cheetah HD-MR mainframe.

"This order is another significant government win for us and demonstrates our continuing dominance of that market," said Bob McAlpine, senior vice president of sales and marketing for PESA. "As a technological advance, the Cheetah routing system and Cheetah V5 multiplexor has greatly simplified the use of RGBHV and has become very popular with our government as well as commercial customers."

The Cheetah routing matrix offers optional fiberoptic input and output cards to facilitate a cost effective, and space efficient integration for the installation. This option offers a hybrid of coax and fiber formats within the same frame.

The Cheetah is PESA's flagship router system, offering a full-featured digital routing switcher with the power to handle analog, SDI, HDTV, and non-standard digital signals in the same frame. To accommodate a wide range of requirements, the Cheetah is available in 64x64, 128x128, 256x256, and 512x512 frame sizes and can handle bit-rates from 3 Mb/s up to 1.485 Gb/s.
