Press Release Summary: NAB Las Vegas, April 15, 2008 - Pixelmetrix, the global
expert in Preventive Monitoring for digital television and IPTV networks, will
feature its Electronic Couch PotatoT (ECP) and ECP ConsolidatorT as part of the
Viewer Experience Monitoring demo, at Booth SU12105.

Press Release Body: The Electronic Couch PotatoT stands out with its ability to
emulate the end-user changing channels on a Set Top Box via a built-in infrared (IR)
control transmitter. Service plan verification, channel switching and recording
measurements on service quality for each channel to be reported to a central
management console, equips the service provider with an in-depth knowledge of the
end-user's experience. Most importantly, it helps to check whether the channels
that the ECP scans are actually available in the first place.
"The Electronic Couch PotatoT is designed to monitor the true customer viewing
experience by providing measurements from the end point of the content delivery
chain. The ECPT connects after the Set Top Box (STB) and provides feedback on
various service quality parameters to a central site," said Danny Wilson, President
and CEO of Pixelmetrix.

The ECPT takes the raw audio-video output of the STB as its input to make parameter
measurements. It utilizes the decoded signal from a consumer-graded STB to make a
complete and true evaluation of the end-user's QoE.

Highlights at the booth include Pixelmetrix end-to-end monitoring solutions and
emerging video over IP transmission monitoring solutions featuring the Emmy Award
winning DVStation-210, Electronic Couch PotatoT (ECP) and ECP ConsolidatorT,
DVStation-Remote, DVStation-IP, DVStorIP-Gen, DVStor, DVProbe-C, VISUALmpeg
Qualify, ATSC Transport Stream Compliance Verification software and DVB-S.2 ASLF.

The NAB exhibition will be held from April 14 to 17 at the Las Vegas Convention
Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
