Vimicro International Launches Major SVAC Deployment and Receives Order for Large Video-security Solution

BEIJING, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vimicro International Corporation (NASDAQ: VIMC) ("Vimicro" or the "Company"), a leading image processing IC and security solution provider, today announced that it has commenced the deployment of a technology solution based on SVAC (security Video and Audio Coding) and that its Zhongtianxin Science and Technology Co., Ltd. ("ZTX") joint venture has received a large order for SVAC-based video security products and solutions, valued at approximately USD $20 million.

ZTX has signed an agreement with the Public Security Bureau of a large Chinese city for the first phase of a major video-security system, to be installed along highways, sidewalks, and at key public facilities. The project will be completed in three stages-analysis and work allocation, project implementation, and system test-which are expected to be completed during the next two months. The city government's plan calls for the implementation of a large-scale SVAC-based security system over the next three years.

The project will feature SVAC technology, which is a core standard for video security in China, co-developed by Vimicro and the Ministry of Public Security, along with contributions from more than 40 scientific research institutes, universities, and security-industry companies. For the past two years, Vimicro has installed many SVAC test sites across China and recently completed a successful field-trial of the SVAC standard.

"We are pleased to have been selected as the primary technology and solution provider for this major video-security system in a large Chinese city. This represents the first major citywide security system employing our national SVAC technology standard," commented Dr. John Deng, Vimicro's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This key project is a major validation of the SVAC standard and also of Vimicro's technology and capabilities and marks the start of a wave of SVAC deployment."
