March Networks Recognized for Leadership Position in North American Retail Video Surveillance Market

    OTTAWA, Jan. 21 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(TM) (TSX:MN; AIM:MNW), a
leading provider of intelligent IP video and business analysis applications,
is pleased to announce its ranking as the second largest supplier of video
surveillance equipment to the North American retail market in a new report
from IMS Research.
    The report, Security in Retail: A Survey of Retailers in North America,
estimates that March Networks is one of three video surveillance equipment
providers with a 6 percent share each of the $437 million market that is
expected to grow to $586.4 million by 2011.
    More than 100 retail organizations use March Networks' intelligent
exception reporting and IP video solutions to prevent losses, mitigate risk,
enhance security and improve overall store performance. These advanced
technologies are critical tools for retail organizations in their efforts to
reduce internal theft, organized crime and other sources of inventory
shrinkage, which costs U.S. retailers an estimated $42 billion annually.
    In February, March Networks customers from top U.S. and Canadian retail
organizations will attend the company's third annual Retail Summit in
Scottsdale, AZ. The Company hosts the roundtable each year to bring together
senior loss prevention, operations and IT decision-makers for focused
discussion on loss prevention strategies and future technology requirements.
    "Our efforts to engage with our customers and respond to their needs has
helped us develop leading retail solutions that have proven both reliable and
highly effective in some of the largest retail deployments in North America,"
said Peter Strom, President and CEO, March Networks. "We are extremely pleased
to be recognized for our success in this high-growth sector and anticipate
increasing our retail vertical market share in 2008, both in North America and
in other target markets."
