1 Essential Viewing Systems Corporate Overview

2 Page 2 AGENDA BACKGROUND MANAGEMENT TEAM TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE PRODUCTS ARCHITECTURE AND TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION WITH OTHER SYSTEMS CASE STUDIES UNIQUE BENEFITS QUESTIONS 9

3 Page 3 BACKGROUND ON ESSENTIAL VIEWING SYSTEMS Technology is based on research work at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Spin-out in July 1999 Research and Development focus 1999 to 2005 First commercial hardware products launched 2006 Lockheed-Martin acquired stock in July 2008 Current generation products launched March 2009 Essential Viewing specialises in the development of software and hardware solutions which deliver high quality video over low bandwidth networks in real-time.

4 Page 4 BACKGROUND ON ESSENTIAL VIEWING SYSTEMS There is a misconception that network bandwidth is unlimited Whilst network bandwidth technologies are increasing – e.g. GPRS HSDPA – this is not universal The theoretical bandwidths are typically never available in real world scenarios Video, by its very nature, is data intensive Defence and Law Enforcement customers often have to operate where there is no secure fixed infrastructure to provide communications Technology is driving sensor capabilities – higher definition camera This drives the need for increased network bandwidth Network bandwidth is not often limited, and when combined with data-intensive live video Essential Viewing offers a compelling value proposition to Law Enforcement and Defence users.

5 Page 5 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL Police and Law Enforcement Focused on covert surveillance applications Focus on Technical Support Units and Surveillance Teams Defence Initial UK-focus with Special Forces customer base Now expanding into US Defence with significant projects Developing Canadian and Australia Defence opportunities Local Government Early adopters in the UK proved business case Applications include rapid-deployment CCTV and mobile CCTV Transport UK Highways Agency customers and Local Authorities using the system Applications for road monitoring, replacement to permanent CCTV systems and mobile applications TARGET MARKETS

6 Page 6 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL Utilities, Oil and Gas Critical infrastructure monitoring and protection UK exposure through EDF, the largest utilities provider in Europe Similar requirements to police and Defence customers Mining North American focus to date but projects in RSA, South America and Africa Similar requirements to Defence customers Significant market size Broadcasting Pilot projects completed with BBC, ITN and CBS Focus is on outside broadcasting – live and recorded – over mobile satellite systems such as Inmarsat Video Teleconferencing Systems Existing customers in Defence, Law Enforcement and Government agencies - using the encoders for VTC applications SECONDARY MARKETS

7 Page 7 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL CHANNEL PARTNERS AND SYSTEM INTEGRATORS Business Model Business Model is to sell to end customers through Value Added Channel Partners and Systems Integrators Allows coverage of international territories with the most appropriate partners Partners can provide solutions based on COTS products, or integrate them into more bespoke offerings

8 Page 8 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL POLICE MARKET Police Customers Many UK police Customers Product sold through Channel Partners EV provide direct support for larger organisations – e.g. SOCA, Met Police, SCDEA Heavily deployed in regional CTU organisations Sales also to US, Canada, Singapore, Pakistan and Australia police users

9 Page 9 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL DEFENCE MARKET Defence Market Many UK Special Forces customers Supplied via Tier 1 Prime Contractors – e.g. LM, Fujitsu and SAIC Trickle down from UK SF to UK Green Army Now focusing on US Defence – with partners and direct research-led engagements

10 Page 10 TARGET MARKETS AND BUSINESS MODEL LOCAL GOVERNMENT Local Government Market Key Channel Partner is Tyco with additional sales through RACAM Security Applications include, semi-mobile CCTV systems for monitoring road junctions and roadworks Mobile CCTV Vans Control Room video distribution EV/Tyco offering is significantly cheaper than traditional solutions Significant growth opportunities in Middle East and Asia

20 Page 20 Case Study Rapid deployment camera Local Government customer in London Rapid deployment system with Essential Viewing codec included Video transmitted over cellular network at up to 250kbps uplink Remote control of the camera to allow operator to view all around camera area

21 Page 21 Case Study Trial for Transport for London Trial on London Buses to stream live video over cellular networks Video transmitted over cellular network at up to 60kbps uplink Each bus has up to 16 cameras Integrated Essential Viewing codec into on-board DVR Successful 4 day trial

22 Page 22 Case study Video over non-IP Defence radio Harris military field radios Non-IP channel Half-duplex links Low channel capacity – 16kbps Two modes of operation – push and pull

23 Page 23 High Resolution Download

24 Page 24 UNIQUE BENEFITS Live Video Monitoring Camera PTZ requires low latency if targets are to be tracked High latency means a target is out of the field of view before the operator can steer the camera When panning a high frame rate is required A low frame rate gives no sense of target motion A low frame rate results in camera overshoot Visual quality must be sufficient to allow for target identification during a pan

25 Page 25 UNIQUE BENEFITS Network Congestion IP Networks behave in a similar manner to roads when heavily loaded Saturation results in a shock wave Packets are delayed or lost Effective capacity or bandwidth drops Journey time or latency increases Channel saturation must be avoided Both packet size and packet frequency must be tightly controlled MPEG does not allow for control over both packet size and packet frequency Latency is bad over low bandwidth

26 Page 26 UNIQUE BENEFITS Limitations of MPEG-based Systems Video coding and channel are divorced Assumes coding bandwidth is a small fraction of the actual channel capacity Packet size and frequency will vary Packet size increases with scene motion Designed to hit an average bandwidth Frames dropped if bandwidth exceeded Quality can degrade to the point of being useless if frame rate is forced high Congestion and hence performance gets worse as channel capacity goes down

27 Page 27 UNIQUE BENEFITS Communications channel is NOT de-coupled from the video encoding process Quality of Service control metric ensures video coding matches channel capacity on real-time basis to keep latency low Encoder multiplexes different types of data – video, audio and data (PTZ, GPS, etc) - into a single IP stream where the video bandwidth adjusts to accommodate audio and data Precise control over IP packet frequency and packet size reduces stress on wireless networks avoiding congestion Audio Video Data Stream QoS Video Server
