DVDO August Online Auction to Benefit Public Broadcasting of California



Campbell, CA — August 7, 2006 — As part of their ongoing corporate responsibility program, Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. and DVDO announce that KQED, Public Broadcasting for Northern California will be the beneficiary of their August online charity auction. Each month DVDO auctions off a new product package via the website, with all proceeds going to a selected charity for the month. In July, Anchor Bay and DVDO raised $1,600 to help cover the travel expenses for one of their employees who was organizing a trip to Louisiana to help re-build a community devastated by Hurricane Katrina and the resulting floods.

KQED Public Broadcasting first appeared on television screens in the Bay Area on April 5, 1954, as a vehicle to extend the educational reach of media into San Francisco homes. Over the past 52 years, they have become one of the flagship stations in public broadcasting. KQED is a leader in the effort to service an ever-increasing audience with some of the most powerful and perceptive programming available. Through the creation and acquisition of programs, the leveraging of their multiple media assets, and strategic partnerships, KQED delivers television, radio and internet content that make people think, feel and explore new ideas. Their programming and services reflect the value that they place on human dignity, lifelong learning, the power of ideas, and the importance of community service and civic participation.

This month, DVDO will be auctioning off a brand new DVDO iScan VP20 in the box with full warranty. Included in the package are a user installable Precision Deinterlacing Card, iScan VP20 Silver Front Panel (Brushed Aluminum), an AVIA Guide to Home Theater DVD, and a 6′ HDMI cable. August’s product package carries a total retail value of $2,336.

“DVDO and Anchor Bay Technologies are proud to support KQED with our August online auction. California is fortunate to have a public broadcasting forum that offers programming with such immense educational and entertainment value to viewers. Between the children’s shows, arts and entertainment coverage and world news reports, everyone can benefit from KQED and we are glad to offer our public support,” said Senior Director of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gary Chappell.

DVDO and its parent company Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. (ABT) also extend their charitable endeavors into the local community. Several times a year, employees volunteer with the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Jose, CA. DVDO team members contribute by sorting and distributing food for member agencies, helping with the upkeep of the food bank and performing data entry to assist with inventory. DVDO also contributes to the Elf Foundation’s Rooms of Magic Program. The Elf Foundation is a 501 C3 non-profit charity that brings the enchantment of uplifting music and film to sick children throughout the country.
