US Navy Security Project to Utilize Technology from
Extreme CCTV

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 31, 2005) - Extreme
CCTV International (TSX:EXC) announced today that the US Navy has
recently awarded a significant project incorporating Extreme's leading
license plate reading system for a security application at an East Coast
Naval base. The project required an automated license plate reading
system at the base's entrance gate that could function in any weather or
lighting conditions, capturing, logging and comparing vehicle license
plates to selected databases.

The US Navy project had to meet technical requirements that were also
cost effective. The selected configuration that is being installed at
the naval base is also being proposed as a new Navy standard for vehicle
and ID verification at Naval base gates.

The system configuration includes Extreme CCTV International's REG
License Plate Capture cameras and Dedicated Micros' BX2 Digital Video
Multiplex Recorders with 640GB. The BX2 with internal CD writer provides
the Navy highly-secured recording to meet their current needs. The value
of the contract was undisclosed.

The Navy had several requirements for plate capture and DVR (digital
video recorder) systems. To design an effective solution, the camera had
to capture plates consistently in a variety of challenging conditions.
The DVR had to be able to take the inputs from Extreme's REG cameras and
effectively record images of the license plates. The Navy wanted to be
able to burn images to CD, and thus required a minimum of 13 frames per
second per camera to guarantee capture. Extreme CCTV's REG cameras
easily meet this performance criteria.

"The naval project is an example of how REG license plate capture
technology is being used for the highest levels of security," says Jack
Gin, President and CEO of Extreme CCTV. "The ability to capture license
plates in any ambient lighting conditions is now considered an important
security requirement for numerous applications."

The 12-18 month long project is planned to begin in April.

The naval base security project was awarded to systems integrator
Executive Technologies Corporation of Charleston, SC. Executive
Technologies integrates products from leading technology companies
including Extreme CCTV and Dedicated Micros. Atlantic Protection
Systems, a U.S. Department of Defense systems integrator subcontracts
for Executive Technologies Corporation, and was also instrumental in
assembling the winning bid with Executive Technologies. A larger part of
Extreme's revenue is now being derived from systems integrators.

Further project details will be disclosed at an Extreme CCTV
International / Dedicated Micros joint press briefing and demonstration
at Extreme CCTV's booth (5101) at 1:00 pm on Wednesday April 6 at the
International Security Conference in Las Vegas (ISC West).
