Kangaroo TV Branches into Golf

    Handheld TV brings new multimedia dimensions and state-of-the-art
    spectator services into prestigious golf tournament

    MIRABEL, QC, Sept. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Kangaroo TV Europe Ltd,
IMG Worldwide and the PGA European Tour are proud to announce the integration
of the Kangaroo handheld TV at the HSBC World Match Play Championship,
October 11 to 14, 2007. Kangaroo TV will be trial-tested throughout the
four-day competition to be held in Wentworth, England with the intention of
developing the program for public use in 2008.
    The progressive move from HSBC, title sponsor of the World Match Play
Championship, and IMG to include the state-of the-art technology will enhance
coverage of the annual event and further the sport. Kangaroo TV is a
lightweight portable device that receives live audio, video and data streams,
allowing the user to "jump" between various screens to follow the golfers
around the course. Kangaroo TV will carry the BBC production of the HSBC World
Match Play Championship, exclusive live footage from different camera angles,
vital up-to-the-minute Unisys scoring, and live tournament commentary.
    Tournament Director Senior Vice President, IMG, Marc Webster said, "We
are thrilled that Kangaroo TV has chosen the HSBC World Match Play
Championship to launch their involvement in golf. We believe the availability
of this cutting-edge technology will enhance our spectators experience as they
are able to follow the progress of the various matches between the world class
golfers in the field this year."
    "It is an honour for Kangaroo TV to be part of the prestigious HSBC World
Match Play Championship," said Alain Charette, Vice President of Corporate
Development and GM of Kangaroo TV Europe. "The benefits of using Kangaroo TV
will be realized as spectators will be able to follow the entire tournament
whilst watching from a fairway or a green of the course. The Kangaroo TV will
give golf enthusiasts widespread coverage, mobility and intimacy with the
world-class golfers as never before seen."
    Widely used in motorsports around the world, the Kangaroo TV service will
be applied to the unique demands of the golf landscape and competition. The
handy Kangaroo TV devices will be available to media, VIP, select spectators,
sponsors and partners to sample the new technology during the event. Media
distribution will be managed in conjunction with IMG HSBC Golf press officer
and media department.
