Deer Park, NY Friday, October 10, 1997 - QuesTec Imaging, Inc. (QuesTec), (NASD-BB: QSTI), and NBC Sports (a division of the National Broadcasting Company, Inc.) announce an agreement to utilize QuesTecs SuperVisionSM system. SuperVisionSM will be utilized to enhance NBCs broadcast of the 1997 Major League Baseball National League Championship Series (NLCS) and the 1997 World Series.

The total dollar value of this contract exceeds $ 100,000.00 (US). This contract is QuesTecs first national baseball broadcasting agreement for SuperVisionSM.
SuperVisionSM will be used by NBCs commentators (Bob Costas, Joe Morgan and Bob Uecker) to display and analyze key pitches, pitcher/batter match-ups and key at bats.
