Press Release Body: DDS, a leading manufacturer of access control and alarm
management solutions, announces that its solution has been selected to monitor more
than 60% of the doors being protected for the coming Olympic Games in China . DDS
systems will supervise about 2000 doors across 10 main structures, including the
Olympic Village, the Chinese Olympic Committee Tower, the Olympic Sports Center
Stadium, the Baseball Stadium, the Bicycle Stadium, the Media Center Building and
the Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium.

DDS Solutions have been integrated via OPC into the wider security management system
specially developed for the Olympic Games. The company's "All-in-one card security
solution" has been selected for deployment in the Olympic village to manage movement
of thousands of athletes through 700 doors and 200 elevators. A single proximity
badge will be used for entering the buildings and parking lots, sport facilities, as
well as entering points of sale spread throughout the site, simplifying access
control management without compromising security.

In a context of terrorist threats, with the added factor of possible huge losses
from systems malfunctions, security is a number one priority. The organizing
committee sought solutions based on advanced security management systems to ensure a
pleasant and safe environment for the large number of athletes and staff. The number
of people who will be supervised by DDS during the Olympic Games will include:
15,000 athletes from 203 countries, 20,000 journalists, and ten of thousands of
staff workers. In selecting DDS, the organizing committee was seeking a
high-performing access control solution that would be easy to integrate with other
security systems, easy to install and use, and competitively priced.

"The Chinese Olympic Committee had very specific security requirements," said DDS
co-founder Binyamin Machado. "DDS customized solutions combined with the
professional services provided by our technical support team helped us win these
projects." With 9 offices spread across the country, DDS China has already installed
access control and alarm management solutions at important government and state
institutions, prisons, police offices, as well as at the facilities of many
international companies' (Nokia, Motorola, Volkswagen, FedEx etc.). "Among all of
our Chinese installations, DDS is particularly proud to acknowledge these projects
and to participate in this manner in the Olympic Games" he added.
