IDC Awarded 300 Unit Contract In China For Its DR Technology



    Marks Single Largest OEM Contract Awarded to IDC in Company History

    CALGARY, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd.) (TSX: IDL),
the global leader in the rapidly growing market for digital radiography (DR),
is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract to supply 300 units of
its proprietary CCD-based DR imaging technology to the China Charity
Federation over the next twelve to eighteen months. This is the single largest
OEM contract IDC has been awarded to date. The China Charity Federation (CCF)
is a United Way International recognized body and one of the most influential
charitable organizations in China.
    In the last several years, the CCF has been actively involved in
humanitarian activities that have gained nationwide attention and resulted in
great social impact. Its main focuses are providing disaster relief, poverty
relief, care of seniors and orphans, education, medical assistance and helping
the disabled. This contract is a result on an endeavor of the Sunshine Medical
Aid Project, organized by the China Charity Federation.
    "This contract marks the first time the China Charity Federation has ever
proceeded with such a large medical digital imaging equipment project in
China," states Mr. Li Bao Zhong, Vice Chairman and Director of the China
Charity Federation. "The China Charity Federation, in conjunction with the
China government, will install such a large number of digital radiography
systems into healthcare facilities all over the country to provide better
access to those in need. This project will also boost our economy with the
realization of jobs created by the construction and development of additional
medical facilities."
    "The CCF has stringent guidelines and IDC was awarded the contract after
a very comprehensive competitive evaluation," states Mr. Sidong Huang, Vice
President, IDC Asia. "It is a great honour to have been chosen to provide CCF
healthcare facilities in China with the technology to capture high resolution
diagnostic images and improve the level of patient care for those who normally
wouldn't have access to adequate healthcare facilities."
    "IDC is extremely proud to have been chosen by the China Charity
Federation as its sole digital radiography provider for its healthcare
facilities," states Mr. Tom Boon, President & CEO, IDC. "This contract is a
phenomenal testament to IDC's DR technology and continued innovation. The
installation of these 300 systems will further strengthen our position as a
leading DR provider in the China market."
