Novra Technologies Announces Continued Sales Growth in IPTV Market

    WINNIPEG, June 18 /CNW/ - Novra Technologies Inc. (NVI: TSX; Venture) has
received orders for more than 3,300 S75 Satellite receivers for various
international IPTV networks, which distribute digital television using
Internet Protocol (IPTV), so far in 2008. This expands Novra's presence in the
IPTV market to well over 18,000 installations, spread across 4 continents. The
majority of these installations are located in businesses, Government, or
multi-dwelling units, each serving from several to hundreds of individual
viewers or subscribers. Novra's marketing focus, along with the technical
capabilities of the S75 product line and Novra's commitment to product quality
and service excellence, have been the solid foundation for this continued
penetration in the IPTV market.
    Novra's clients use the S75 to deliver IPTV content in a wide range of
applications. These include delivery of digital television within apartment
buildings, in-suite entertainment in hotels, subscription-based television to
more than 20,000 homes from one head-end, digital signage in bank branches,
and in-office informational television. Each S75 provides the capability to
directly feed an entire network with digital television, rather than only
servicing a single computer or set-top box. Its reliability has been proven
and recognized by the market and has been the key to its on-going acceptance
in highly visible applications around the world.
    "The IPTV market continues to show steady growth and our efforts to
secure additional opportunities for our S75 receiver in this growing market
segment are proving successful. We will continue to supply powerful,
high-quality, cost-effective solutions to the IPTV market as it grows and
endeavor to remain a supplier of choice," stated Novra's Mike Borgford,
Director of Open Systems at Novra.
    Novra's S75 family of DVB-S receivers enables data or video, in open or
encrypted form, to be received and then distributed over Ethernet. More than
27,000 S75s have been successfully deployed by hundreds of organizations
around the world, in various applications such as weather information
distribution, point-of-purchase advertising, delivery of training materials,
corporate television and training, and data distribution backbones.
