Guest-Tek's Sigpro & TeleMatrix Announce the Launch of the TeleMatrix 1170 Touch Screen Telephone

    CALGARY, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd.,
("Guest-Tek" or the "Company") (TSX:GTK), a leader in providing broadband
technology solutions to the global hospitality industry, announced that
TeleMatrix, Inc ("TeleMatrix"), a worldwide leading supplier of hospitality
and business telephones, and Sigpro, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guest-Tek
have signed an agreement (the "Agreement") to jointly develop and launch the
1170 touch screen telephone. The 1170 is a multi-service SIP display telephone
that will provide hoteliers a new paradigm for the cost effective deployment
of IP telephony. Under the terms of the Agreement, TeleMatrix will complete
development of the 1170 phone, and will manufacture the 1170 and certain other
Sigpro products under license from Sigpro. Guest-Tek and Sigpro will market
the 1170 to the hospitality market while TeleMatrix will provide global
distribution through its established network of dealers.
    "TeleMatrix has been working with Sigpro and Guest-tek for many years on
various projects. We have enjoyed a good working relationship and are pleased
to take on this project. TeleMatrix has been working behind the scenes for
some time blending in our existing SIP technology with our DECT developments.
The 1170 is already well underway and has some wonderful technology," says
Jose Quiros, VP of Sales & Marketing for TeleMatrix & Scitec.
    "We have seen tremendous interest in this product from hoteliers around
the world and are pleased to be working with TeleMatrix to get the product to
market and ensure strong global distribution. Hoteliers in many sectors have
recognized the significant economic benefit they can realize from the
convergence of WiFi, DECT, and SIP in this product along with a powerful
display that enhances the in-room experience," said Mike Tourigny, CEO of
    The 1170 Touch Screen Telephone is expected to be finished and on display
at the HITEC 2008 Expo, and is scheduled for release in June 2008.
