TEL - AVIV,, August 3, 2006 Scopus Video Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: SCOP), a provider of digital video networking products, today announced its results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2006.

Q2 2006 Consolidated Statements:

Second Quarter 2006 Highlights:

* Record revenue growing 12% compared to the second quarter of 2005 and 9% sequentially.
* Received an initial order for the UID-2912 Dense Edge Decoder from a leading U.S. Multi-Service Operator (MSO).
* Traction continues in Asia-Pacific, Europe and Africa.

Revenue in the second quarter of 2006 was $12.4 million, up 12% from $11.1 million in the second quarter of 2005. The breakdown of revenue by region was 62% million in EMEA, 17% million in Asia and Pacific Rim and 21% million in the Americas.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2006 was $6.1 million compared with $5.6 million, as reported in the second quarter of 2005. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 49% compared with 50% in the second quarter of 2005.

Pro-forma net loss, which excludes stock based compensation expenses, was $0.7 million or $0.05 per share compared to a net loss of $1.4 million or $0.64 per share as reported in the second quarter of 2005.

Net loss on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2006 was $1.2 million, or $0.09 per basic share, an improvement from a net loss of $1.4 million or $0.64 per basic share in the comparable quarter of 2005.

The Company ended the second quarter with cash and equivalents of $32 million, compared with $32 million on March 31, 2006.

David Mahlab, CEO of Scopus said, “Our second quarter set a new record in terms of revenue. Over 80% of the revenue came from repeat orders. Our US sales in the first half of this year grew 70% compared with last year and we are seeing significant traction for our products. Going forward, the pace of the US business, however, is likely to be somewhat slower than our original expectations. We are in the process of qualifying our IVG splicing product at a number of US Tier-1 operators, though this is taking longer than we had originally anticipated.”
Mr. Mahlab concluded, “The rest of the world is growing inline with our expectations. We are seeing growing demand, strong sales and a growing pipeline in the geographies where we are particularly strong, including Russia, India, the Far East.”
