Latens Software-Only CAS Solution to Secure IPTV Services From Egyptian Advanced Multimedia Systems

BELFAST, Northern Ireland, April 7, 2011 - Latens, (www.latens.com) a provider of software security solutions
for payTV across all networks, today announced that EAMS (Egyptian Advanced
Multimedia Systems) has chosen Latens software-only Conditional Access System
(CAS) to protect Egypt's first Satellite IPTV delivery system.

The EAMS Ecosystem will consist of Latens CAS, plus other system
components from leading technology providers for IPTV hardware and software.
EAMS plans to offer High Definition (HD)/Standard Definition (SD) linear TV,
Pay per view, and Video On Demand services using satellite delivery of
content via Nilesat to regional headends.

"Of all the solutions we considered, Latens' CAS was the most attractive
solution as it offers a high level of protection and security for our IPTV
system." says Tarek Malash, CEO of EAMS. "Latens' experienced team were able
to demonstrate their software-only security solution which we considered to
be the best in terms of functionality, scalability and cost of ownership."
says Mohamed Swidan, CTO of EAMS.

"This is our first customer in Africa and outlines Latens' continuing
growth in emerging markets along with our capability in providing innovative
solutions to our customers," says Jeremy Thorp, CEO of Latens.

Latens CAS is the world's only DVB(R) compliant software-only CAS
designed for operators of cable, DTH and DTT. The card-less technology offers
payTV operators a more dynamic and secure anti-piracy solution at a much
lower cost than traditional card-based or embedded set-top systems. Latens'
unique CAS protects content across all networks - Cable, IP, DTH, DTT - be it
one-way, two-way or hybrid. This allows operators to use a single Latens CAS
headend for any type of network, making it a safe investment for operators
expanding their payTV services across multiple distribution infrastructures.
