Wireless HD extender solution makes a breakthrough in audio-video delivery

Huntsville, AL – January 16, 2007 – Avocent Corporation (NASDAQ: AVCT), today announced it is now shipping the industry’s first wireless high-definition (HD) media extender providing both wired and wireless connectivity in one product. The Emerge MPX1000 HD Multipoint Extender incorporates high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) technology for moving high-definition content from one source to multiple destinations. High resolution computer graphics up to 1280 x 768, HD video up to 720p, stereo audio, and control data are wirelessly transmitted to as many as eight wireless or wired receivers.

“We are pleased to announce the availability of the Emerge MPX1000 HD Multipoint Extender, our first HD extension product,” said Mitch Friend, senior vice president and general manager of Avocent. “This breakthrough in audio-video delivery is a step towards meeting the market’s push for higher resolutions by providing true digital picture and sound content delivery to displays for presentation and digital signage applications.”

The Avocent Emerge MPX1000 HD Multipoint Extender includes a transmitter and receiver that provide feature rich, high-definition media support for use in professional audio-visual applications. The Emerge MPX1000 extension product extends video and audio over standard 10/100 Ethernet wiring up to 3000 feet and wirelessly through walls up to 150 feet, or up to 1000 feet line of sight with optional directional antenna. Audio-video synchronization is maintained at each display and all wirelessly connected receivers remain in lock step with each other. The Avocent MPX1000 HD Multipoint Extender has interchangeable modules for input of analog VGA signals or digital HDMI/DVI signals. The MPX1000 extender solution is accessible through two primary user interfaces: an on-board web server that allows browser-based unit control and configuration, and a front panel display that provides push-button access to system status. The extenders allow for control of attached audio-visual equipment through RS-232 serial and infrared connections.

Components of the wireless HD extender solution include the MPX1000T transmitter priced at $1,095 (MSRP), MPX1000R receiver priced at $995 (MSRP), and MPX1000MT-HDMI transmitter module and MPX1000MR-HDMI receiver module priced at $195 (MSRP) each.
