Introducing Compel II for comprehensive management of video, audio and data broadcasts within commercial and private network operations (April 10, 2008) - DULUTH, Georgia – Wegener Corporation (Nasdaq: WGNR), a leading provider of equipment for television, audio and data distribution networks worldwide, today announced it will unveil the next generation WEGENER Compel® II network control system at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention, Booth #SU7911, April 14-17, 2008, in Las Vegas. Compel II retains the patented features of the Compel network control system while adding new features designed to enhance the user interface and simplify operations for dynamic media distribution. Compel network control is used by content providers, private network operators, corporations, and broadcasters. The control system has been streamlined by unifying many different screens and utilities within a single, user friendly, web-based graphical user interface (GUI). Using the web browser access, operators can control live and file-based media distribution networks from any web-enabled remote location. Built upon a scalable open architecture, Compel II also makes it easier for network administrators to limit access of employees or affiliates to only those features and functions their jobs require. New set-up features allow administrators to create classes of users that designate each user’s level of access. Upon log-in, users are identified by classification, and the GUI is automatically reconfigured. Compel networks manage from ten to over 100,000 receivers. With new support for SQL databases, Compel II enables the search, import, and export of databases for better network management and expanded reporting features. Additionally, a new site addressing feature streamlines data entry in the database for those sites that have multiple receivers. “We designed the new features for Compel II based upon extensive customer feedback,� said Ned L. Mountain, President and COO, WEGENER. “These user-friendly features streamline the workflow, making it faster and easier for our customers to manage their networks and give permissioned access to their workers and contractors.� Compel II will become available later this year and will offer backward compatibly to WEGENER’s existing Compel networks.
