TANDBERG Chosen 'Videoconferencing Company of the Year' for 6th Consecutive Year; Videoconferencing Insight Cites Its Innovation, Quality, Ease of Use, Training, Partner Network.

NEW YORK & OSLO, Norway -- For the sixth year in a row, TANDBERG, (OSLO:TAA.OL), a global leader in visual communication, has been named Videoconferencing Company of the Year by Videoconferencing Insight Newsletter.

In choosing TANDBERG as its 2005 honoree for the seventh time in the last eight years, the global publication said the company "is the leader in videoconferencing technology innovation." The newsletter cited TANDBERG's enhancement last year of its complete visual communication solution, including endpoints and network infrastructure products. Specifically, it mentioned the company's firewall/Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal technology and video streaming that offer everything needed to build, operate and manage a complete IP video network.

"There is no company to challenge the breadth and depth of the TANDBERG offering," Videoconferencing Insight's editor said. "The quality and ease of use of TANDBERG's products, the company's dedication to training and developing their partner network, and their Constant Care program for customers make TANDBERG our Videoconferencing Company of the Year, for the sixth year running."

"TANDBERG's groundbreaking technology advances in 2005 continue to take visual communication into the future," said Fredrik Halvorsen, TANDBERG Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased that the Videoconferencing Insight Newsletter again recognized our leadership in providing the industry's highest quality, state-of-the-art collaboration tools."

In naming TANDBERG as Videoconferencing Company of the Year 2005, the newsletter listed the major accomplishments that the company made last year, including:

--February: Introduced its Expressway(TM) software that, for the first time, creates a secure path for IP video calls through network firewalls. The International Telecommunications Union in September adopted two new standards for NAT - Firewall traversal based on Expressway.

--March: Enhanced its carrier-grade MPS MCU to carry up to 128 concurrent video calls, whether IPV.35 or ISDN sessions.

--May: Extended its impressive range to 20 MXP endpoints with the new 1000, 150 and Tactical MXP models, and also recognized that High Definition is useful for high bandwidth (4-6 Mbit/s) and high Quality of Service applications within an enterprise LAN, such as telemedicine and detailed manufacturing uses. TANDBERG said it will deliver an end-to-end High Definition solution in the first quarter of 2006 with customer demonstrations in late 2005.

--July: Announced a new offering that integrates with Microsoft Office Communicator, allowing users of Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 and Communicator to launch TANDBERG video calls using the Communicator interface, and also acquired Ivigo, a division of TNO, the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research, which provides scalable solutions for visual communication between 3G mobile users.
