NAD Exhibits A Network Player to Access
Audio, Video and Picture Files Stored on PC’s

Simple and affordable streaming of computer files from the comfort
of the home entertainment system

CES 2005, Las Vegas, NV. Jan. 6, 2005 — NAD, the highly regarded manufacturer of high-performance audio components demonstrateD their first media server, the NetCap Network Player, during CES 2005 in Las Vegas.

NAD has devised an incredibly simple and inexpensive way to access music, movies, and pictures stored on any home networked PCs from the comfort of your home entertainment system. The NetCap Network Player treats your PC network simply as another AV source, and delivers any designated content to the big screen, including music and video files that can be heard in complete surround sound.

All popular music formats (MP3, WMA), picture formats (JPEG, Kodak), and even movies (MPEG 4/ DIVX) are available using either an Ethernet hardwired connection, or 802.11G (including 802.11b) wireless access. Even Internet Radio broadcasts can be streamed to the home theater system via the NetCap Network Player.

NAD provides a piece of software that needs to be loaded on all the computers in the network. Then using the supplied remote with the NetCap Network Player, users can access all computers in the network and all the files on those computers. Music, movie and picture files are selected from any computer quickly and easily via the on-screen display and wireless remote handset.

An assortment of I/O connections is provided on the NetCap including Ethernet and standard analog and digital audio connections. Using a progressive-scan component video output, picture quality of video content is stunning. High quality music playback from compressed file formats is assured using NAD’s superior decoding, D/A conversion, and high quality analog circuits.

The NetCap Network Player was seen in NAD’s Hospitality Suite 1048 at the Hard Rock Hotel during CES 2005. The NetCap Network Player starts shipping in 1st Quarter 2005 with the suggested retail price of $499.
