Viscount Systems Wins Contract with Phoenix Sky Harbor Sky Train

BURNABY, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viscount Systems Inc. (OTCMARKETS:VSYS) a developer and manufacturer of IT-based solutions for physical security, announced today the Company's security platform is being implemented at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Sky Train. The Sky Train will provide faster connections for passengers in and out of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Viscount will deploy both its Freedom access control and MESHView video management solution. Phase I first stage of the Phoenix Sky Harbor Sky Train is scheduled to open in early 2013 and additional phases are scheduled from 2015-2020.

"We are pleased to have Freedom implemented at another high profile and important facility," noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. "Airports, transportation, and critical infrastructure are key markets for Viscount and Freedom continues to demonstrate cost and other benefits over older control panel based technology. For example, large airports have hundreds of card readers and may require over a dozen separate electrical rooms to house the control hardware. Freedom eliminates the need for any of these rooms by eliminating the control panel in favour of a software application that can run on any local server or in the Cloud. So, in addition to savings on electronics, cabling and installation Freedom provides Green benefits by eliminating the cost of designing, building, heating, and maintaining separate rooms just to house electronic hardware."
