CHECKPOINT SYSTEMS, INC. DEBUTS REVOLUTIONARY WIDE AISLE SYSTEM AT NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION CONVENTION

 NEW YORK, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHEK) (Exhibit Hall 1, Booth No. 226) is introducing Condor(TM), the first radio frequency (RF)-based Electronic Article Merchandising(SM) (EAM)(SM) system that protects aisle widths from six to 12 feet using disposable RF targets.
 Condor incorporates advanced RF technology including microprocessor filters and digital signal processors.
 In making the introduction, Kevin Dowd, Checkpoint's vice president, sales, marketing and service, said, "We developed Condor in response to the retailer's need for EAM protection in environments where wide openings are common, such as malls and home centers. Condor's leading edge design will offer retailers superior, reliable detection in an aesthetically pleasing package." EAM systems consist of paper-thin disposable RF targets placed on products, deactivation equipment at the point-of-sale (POS) and sensors at store entrances and exits to detect the unauthorized removal of merchandise.
 Condor meets the requirements set by industry associations such as the National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS). The groundbreaking system features an alarm counter, variable alarm tones for mall or stand-alone stores, integral light alarms, and a patron counter to determine the number of customers who actually make purchases.
 Compatible with Checkpoint's Impulse(SM) source tagging program which builds Checkpoint targets into products or product packaging before they reach the retail level, Condor will detect the presence of hidden targets in everything from fragrances to costume jewelry to video games and CDs. The wide aisle system will also accommodate merchandising panels so that retailers can incorporate their own promotional or advertising messages.
 Checkpoint Systems, Inc., headquartered in Thorofare, offers a wide variety of security and loss prevention solutions for the protection of assets in diverse market applications. Checkpoint's Electronic Article Merchandising(SM) (EAM)(SM) and electronic access control systems are based on its Electronic Signatures(R) technology which makes unique radio signals assignable to items or people. Using detectable paper- thin disposable radio frequency (RF) targets that can be activated and deactivated without contact, the company has more than 65,000 retail installations worldwide. Checkpoint's source tagging program, Impulse(SM), embeds its RF targets into products or product packaging before they reach the retail level.
