Press Release Summary: London, 17 April, 2008: Netvue, specialist IPTV systems
integrator, has supplied media company The Farm Group with a full IPTV system that
allows The Farm Group to stream live TV channels to break-out areas, individual
desktops and edit suites at its four London offices.

Press Release Body: London, 17 April, 2008: Netvue, specialist IPTV systems
integrator, has supplied The Farm Group with a full IPTV system, from satellite dish
and head-end all the way through to the Exterity set-top boxes that enable
individual TVs to receive and display video streams. Content is streamed across the
group's network to all sites from the Farm Group's new premises, known as \'Uncle\',
removing the need for multiple systems and offering operational and maintenance cost

'Uncle' was completed in late 2007, and was selected as the head-end for the new
IPTV system as it was being totally refurbished. Exterity, a specialist in network
IPTV equipment, supplied Netvue with all the IPTV equipment that allows The Farm
Group to stream live TV channels to break-out areas, individual desktops and edit
suites at its four London offices.

"As a post-production company, it is vital that we are able to showcase our work to
new and existing clients in a practical yet effective way. Opting for an IPTV
system means that we are able to not only broadcast material around the new site,
'Uncle', but also to our three sister company sites which are dotted around Soho,"
commented David Klafkowski, Group Director of Technology for the Farm Group. "Also,
because IPTV uses the existing IP network, there was no need for disruption to staff
at any of the sites as we didn't need to do any expensive re-cabling. If and when
we add additional offices to our group we can quickly and easily add them to the
IPTV system too; it's a totally scalable solution."

Jonathan Rackowe, Director at Netvue commented: "The Farm Group is a great example
of a forward looking organisation reaping the rewards of IP-based technology. The
company can now showcase its work in communal areas across the group's offices,
helping it project the right image to new and existing customers."

"IPTV is ideal for multi-site organisations as it enables them to easily broadcast
tailored content across significant distances, which aids in creating a unified look
and feel across offices that may be geographically disparate", said Colin Farquhar,
CEO of Exterity.
