May 6, 2004

by -- Leitch Technology Corporation

Leitch Technology Corporation recently
announced that it was presented with seven awards for some of its newest
products, including VelocityHD(TM) and the Digital Turnaround Processor(TM)
(DTP), during the NAB 2004 show held in Las Vegas.

The DL-850HD High
Definition Serial Digital Legalizer by Videotek, a company that Leitch has
signed a definitive agreement to purchase, was also honored.

The only company to win two consecutive AIM awards, Leitch won a 2004
NAB Award for Innovation in Media (AIM) for VelocityHD on the heels of last
year's win for its CCS Navigator(TM) control system interface. The VelocityHD
non-linear editing system took home a record total for one show of five award
wins: the NAB AIM award, Broadcast Engineering Magazine's 2004 Pick Hit Award,
Videography Magazine's 2004 Vidy Award, TV Technology Magazine's Star 2004
Superior Technology Award and Digital Television/Television Broadcast
Magazine's Editors' Pick of Show 2004 Award.

Also receiving high acclaim at the show were Leitch's new all-MPEG-2
stream manipulation product line, the Digital Turnaround Processor (DTP), and
Videotek's DL-850HD High Definition Serial Digital Legalizer product, both the
recipients of Broadcast Engineering Magazine's 2004 Pick Hit Award.
