SAM Intelligent IP Video Announced as Product Achievement Winner by Security Industry Association - ISC West in Las Vegas

WARREN, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 21, 2006 -- SAM Systems, Inc. today announced receipt of the Software Product Achievement Award from the Security Industry Association (SIA) at the International Security Conference West (ISC) in Las Vegas.

The program identifies and showcases innovation in electronic security products and services. Eighteen judges representing various segments of the industry evaluated over 94 new products and services. SIA President Bill Gorski, Siemens Building Technologies, joined New Products and Services Committee Chair Sandra Jones, and SIA Executive Director Richard Chace to present the awards.

The SAM Intelligent IP Video System was chosen because of its ability to dramatically reduce bandwidth while improving video quality. 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.

According to Gene Thomas, Founder & CEO of SAM Systems, "When SIA announced SAM IP Video as the software product winner we were immediately approached by a dozen international camera manufacturers and video management vendors to discuss strategic alliances. It was quite an endorsement of our technology."
