a contract (the "Contract") with Borgata, a joint venture of Boyd Gaming
Corporation (NYSE:   BYD) and MGM MIRAGE (NYSE:   MGM) to install Guest-Tek's

    On schedule to open just in time for summer, The Water Club, A Signature

Borgata's dining, nightlife and entertainment options.
    "We are pleased to announce this Contract with Guest-Tek," said John
Forelli, Vice President of Information Technology for Borgata Hotel Casino &
Spa. "Our commitment to provide our guests with cutting-edge technology and
quality high-definition television services has led us to select Guest-Tek's
unified system of 100% digital HD IPTV and HD VOD products for The Water
Club."
    "We are very pleased to have been selected to provide The Water Club our
converged IP system of digital television offerings," said Arnon Levy,
President & CEO of Guest-Tek. "Our system will provide the hotel with the
ability to boast full digital television with the most HD channels available
in the industry. With OneView Media HD IPTV and video-on-demand, guests will
enjoy a high level of service and quality of network."
    Guest-Tek's OneView Media(TM) HD system provides an advanced and
intelligent HD set top box that supports MPEG2, MPEG4-AVC and VC-1. The
OneView(TM) Media HD platform provides a complete 100% digital system able to
support both IPTV, and VOD in HD and standard definition (SD) formats. Digital
content is delivered securely over IP using industry standards for conditional
access and content encryption featuring Advanced Encryption Standard 128-bit
encryption technology, as well as aiding content protection from piracy with
session based forensic watermarking. The additional value of this technology
provides flexibility through a software-based approach to content protection
supporting easy renew-ability, revocability, and even complete replacement -
instead of costly and inflexible hardware based solutions that are dependent
upon proprietary embedded hardware in the television.
