    IPICO Sports' next generation tracking and timing solutions continue to
gain market acceptance across the world. Since an initial market introduction
in March 2007, IPICO Sports (http://www.ipicosports.com) has shipped to 16
different countries, and more than 750,000 individuals have been timed by an
IPICO Sports system.
    "Our engineers have been evaluating Radio Frequency Identification
Systems for over 10 years with hopes of creating an integrated solution for
mass finish events that incorporates our FinishLynx digital photofinish and
timing system," said Lynx CEO Ed Evansen. "The IPICO Sports systems are the
first we've found that are both affordable and tailor-made for the application
of sports timing. The fact that our customers could own all of the technology
was also a key consideration in our decision."
    Lynx put the IPICO Sports systems through seven months of extensive tests
and concluded its dual frequency data capture solutions meet their exacting
demands. "That's a very strong endorsement," said IPICO Sports CEO Mark
Herbst. "Their strong reputation is well known throughout the world. I believe
our ability to provide integrated solutions into several key channels will
further benefit the participants at all levels of training and competition."
