Stephen Pumple, President & CEO, AZCAR Technologies Incorporated, announced that AZCAR completed the installation of a new HDTV network master control facility and the associated HDTV upgrades to existing network transmission and media operations facilities at the headquarters of the Turner Entertainment Networks (TEN). TNT in HD went on the air May 10th and will feature HDTV coverage of the NBA Western Conference Finals, which will use a new HDTV Live Integration Control Room also nearing completion by AZCAR at Turner Studios on the Atlanta TEN campus. Additional work at Turner Studios also includes a new HDTV studio control room that is currently moving from design to installation, and is scheduled for completion in Q3/2004.

"These projects are strategically important to our Company, and we are pleased to continue and expand on a successful relationship with the professionals at TEN and participate in the implementation of TEN's new HDTV infrastructure. TEN is an innovative company and a leader in broadcast and media technologies. We are very happy to extend our relationship with this very important customer," said Stephen Pumple.

This order follows the conceptual and detailed design work for this 198,000 sq ft facility which AZCAR was awarded in 1999 and completed in 2001. In September 2003 AZCAR was awarded an engineering contract to work with Turner engineering on the design of the new HDTV master control facilities. The work AZCAR has been awarded includes the upgrading of system infrastructure to handle the expansion of services, as well as outfitting several new areas for expanded capabilities.

"Working hard to service our clients pays dividends. This award brings to four the number of major contracts with TEN in the last year, and we expect more to follow", added John Luff, AZCAR Senior VP Business Development.
