Leitch Installs First NEXIO(TM) Server System in China
June 17, 2004

by --

Leitch Technology Corporation (TSX:LTV) today
announced Qinghai TV (QHTV) has chosen a fully integrated Leitch system
comprising transmission, processing, distribution, branding and control
products for use in master control and playout applications in the
broadcaster's new facilities in Xining, China. The sale represents the first
installation of Leitch's new NEXIO(TM) server platform in China, as well as
the first sale in Asia of the company's NEO VR(TM) modular digital video
recorder.
"We chose Leitch's NEXIO video server because the system's flexible,
scalable architecture will allow us to easily add channels, change formats and
reconfigure applications as our business evolves," said Bai Zianyong, deputy
director at Qinghai TV. "And with CCS Navigator(TM) providing control and
monitoring of the entire system, we will be able to streamline our workflow
and dramatically improve productivity."
Qinghai's new system includes the modular, scalable NEXIO transmission
server and dual SAN infrastructure, as well as Leitch's NEO VR, the television
industry's first full-featured digital video recorder packaged on a single
module. The company's Integrator Gold(TM) wideband digital multi-rate routing
system and Panacea(TM) Clean Switch router, unique in the industry for
offering two clean video outputs, will handle signal distribution. Providing
all system peripherals is Leitch's 6800+ modular infrastructure platform,
which features support of new standards including HD, IP-based control
capabilities, and a completely redesigned line of distribution amplifiers and
fiber optic conversion modules. LogoMotion II(TM), a comprehensive content
branding solution that keys up to four independent layers (static, animated,
clocks) in SDI and two layers in HD, will be used for branding, and Leitch's
CCS Navigator software application will provide control and monitoring for the
entire system.
"This sale represents a significant turning point for Leitch in the Asian
market," said Stephen Wong, vice president Asia Pacific operations, Leitch
Asia, Ltd. "We are confident that as Qinghai begins to realize the benefits of
the NEXIO server system and NEO VR digital video recorder, this first
installation will quickly lead to further traction across the region."
