has received an order valued at approximately $410,000US for S75 receivers to

Internet protocol networks. These S75s will be delivered over the next two
months. This brings the total number of S75-powered IPTV installations to well

or set-top box. Its reliability has been recognized by the market and has
proven to be key to its acceptance in these highly visible installations.

new services continuing to come on-line around the World. We are actively
endeavoring to secure additional opportunities for our S-75 receiver in this
growing market segment" " stated Harris Liontas, President and CEO of Novra
