Press Release Summary: Forward Vision CCTV\'s Metal Mickey cameras have been recently
raising the bar for rapid deployment CCTV.

Press Release Body: Cramlington, UK - June 23 2008
Forward Vision, a member of the Bosch Group, reports its MIC1 series of cameras,
also known as \"Metal Mickeys\", are being used in an increasing number of rapid
deployment applications world-wide. They have recently been used in solutions as
diverse as Presidential protection command vehicles, Police surveillance vans,
Highways Agency vehicles, RNLI lifeboats and temporary wireless surveillance

James Smith, general manager at Forward Vision, says \"The compact size, vandal proof
design and unrivalled Pan, Tilt & Zoom (PTZ) capabilities of the MIC1 series make
them the camera of choice for a multitude of rapid deployment applications. These
types of solutions call for extremely tough and reliable product as the constant
cycle of deployment, transportation and re-deployment can take its toll, but MIC1
series cameras have proved in the field that they are more than up to the challenge
- even in some of the world\'s harshest environments. What\'s more all cameras come
with a fully comprehensive three-year warranty for added piece of mind.\"

Certified to IP68, MIC1 series cameras have an industry leading resistance to water
and dust ingress, making them ideal for the unpredictable nature of rapid
deployment. The use of brushless motor technology not only offers ultra-reliable,
whisper quiet operation, but also means that the camera head does not spin around
freely when powered down - this makes them suitable for permanent mounting on
vehicles without risk of damage while being transported from site to site.

Thanks to multiple communication protocol capability, all of Forward Vision\'s MIC1s
are easily integrated into all leading control systems and an optional compact
control keyboard is available to give full camera functionality where space is a

Forward Vision can offer practical advice on choosing the right product for client\'s
rapid deployment applications and a range of cameras are available including 18x
optical, 36x optical and thermal/optical (dual spectra) options.
