CNBC Arabiya Prefers Vizrt Graphics for Business Programs

Bergen, Norway, March 9, 2006. Vizrt Ltd. (Frankfurt Prime Standard, Oslo Main List: VIZ) announces today that CNBC Arabiya, the Arab world's first and only 24-hour Arabic language financial and business information channel, has decided upon a broad range of Vizrt graphics systems to enhance its business information programs. The order is worth over USD 1.1M which will be recognised in Q1.

Based in Dubai Media City, the channel presents in-depth and up- to-the-minute coverage of regional and international affairs from an Arab economic perspective. Its stated objective is to be the premier source of business information in the region and therefore high- quality, data-driven 3D graphics play a major role in helping the channel reach its targeted goal. CNBC Arabiya is a free-to-air channel that is broadcast on Arabsat and Nilesat.

The decision for Vizrt was based on its reliable track record of first- class graphics systems, already installed in the majority of satellite channels broadcasting throughout the Middle East.

CNBC Arabiya's requirement was a complete 3D on air graphics solution and 3D virtual studio. Only Vizrt could provide the experience and the capability to provide a complete solution that met all the channel's graphics needs with a single core system.
