Thomson's Grass Valley Digital News Production Solutions Are The Worldwide Choice for the Move to HD News

PARIS and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/16/07 -- Thomson's Grass Valley Digital News Production Solutions Are The Worldwide Choice for the Move to HD News

More Stations Choose Tightly Integrated Grass Valley HD Editing Environment

Than Any Other

Paris, France and Las Vegas (National Association of Broadcasters Convention), April 16, 2007 - In their effort to deliver local news in pristine high-definition television, customers worldwide have committed their news production operations to Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS) range of systems. These include the Grass Valley(TM) Aurora(TM) Edit, EDIUS(TM) standard- and high-definition (SD/HD) editing systems, and K2 Media Server and Client Systems.

Major Thomson's customers stations are Al Jazeera English, and stations across the U.S. in major markets such as the CBS owned and operated stations in Philadelphia (KYW) and Los Angeles (KCBS) and ABC owned and operated stations such as Los Angeles' KABC, all of which have selected Grass Valley Aurora Digital News Production for their full HD news transition.

In some major markets, it's a clean sweep for Grass Valley Digital News Production solutions. For instance, virtually every station in San Francisco/San Jose/Oakland market such as KGO (ABC affiliate), KTVU (Fox affiliate), KNTV/KSTS (NBC/Telemundo affiliate), and KRON (independent) have based their HD newscasts on Grass Valley HD news production solutions.

In fact, the majority of major market U.S. broadcasters who have transitioned to HD news production have done so with Grass Valley solutions.

"Grass Valley digital news production [DNP] systems continue to gain favor with broadcasters looking for a reliable and cost-effective migration path to HD local news," said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Technology for the Grass Valley business within Thomson. "The fact that major customers around the world have converted to Grass Valley DNP solutions illustrates the value and universal appeal of the Aurora News systems and the K2 Media Server for developing news content quickly and getting it to air."

As further proof of the Group's significant impact on the industry and HD worldwide, nearly two-thirds of the tapeless HD news production systems on order from local stations and 80 percent of systems now in place among stations that are natively acquiring HD images in the field and distributing news content are based on Grass Valley Aurora Edit and K2 Media Server and Client Systems from Thomson.
