MARKHAM, ONTARIO—-(Marketwire – Oct. 10, 2006) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) announced today the release of its new Encompass digital audio and video capture solution and the latest version of the RecordIAB recording console with networking capabilities.

In addition to multi-channel digital audio recording, Encompass offers synchronized digital video capture, making it ideally suited for markets with both digital audio and visual requirements such as the traditional court market, quasi-judicial markets including depositions, inquiries or hearings and new vertical markets.

Encompass has been configured to suit any environment and can function as a fully featured stand-alone solution operating on a tablet PC or laptop, or as a networked solution for multi-room installations.

"It is a versatile solution that will appeal to many different verticals and has a feature list that is unmatched in the marketplace," added Mr. Outhwaite.

The latest version of the RecordIAB recording console offers full networking capabilities as well as the ability to archive audio to an external USB device for easy storage, backup or remote use. These features make RecordIAB an ideal solution for a wide array of customers including the thousands of users with end of life analog recording machines as well as users looking for centralized storage of their audio records.

Both Encompass and RecordIAB will be launched in the US market at the upcoming dealer conference co-hosted by VIQ Solutions and Smoltz Distributing Inc., VIQ Solutions' North American distribution partner, on November 9, 2006.
