NetStreams Offers Additional Features forDigiLinX Multi-Room Audio System

Austin, TX — February 11, 2005 — NetStreams the leader in IP-based Networked Audio/Video distribution, continues to set the path for the future of digital home entertainment with the newest upgrades for its revolutionary DigiLinX system. The company released the latest version of its DigiLinX Dealer Setup Program (version 1.34) to authorized DigiLinX dealers. The new version, which includes firmware upgrades for all DigiLinX components, allows integration of Panasonic IP-based security cameras, and gives installers new zone-grouping options for customized listening and control. DigiLinX’s upgradeable firmware makes the system uniquely future-proof, as it lets NetStreams immediately implement new functions in response to third-party product launches and emerging installer needs.

“We designed DigiLinXto offer the best investment in whole-house entertainment, using architecture that easily shifts and expands with consumers’ needs,” said Herman Cardenas, founder and CEO of NetStreams. “By simply connecting a computer and loading the firmware, our authorized DigiLinX dealers can update the system before, during, or after installation, ensuring complete integration with the newest products in a customer’s home. This, in addition to such advantages as DigiLinX’s ability to integrate a virtually infinite number of sources and listening zones, puts its function well beyond that of traditional audio distribution systems.”

NetStreams’ newest DigiLinX firmware expands the system’s function beyond entertainment. Its TouchLinX in-wall keypads feature an LCD touch screen that not only provides system control, but can now display video feed from Panasonic’s new IP-based security cameras (models KX-HCM10 and KX-HCM280). Users can watch up to four video feeds simultaneously on one screen, and can toggle between full and split screen at will. Integrating the cameras with DigiLinX requires configuring the system using the DigiLinX Dealer Setup Program version 1.34.

Another highlight of the new firmware upgrade is “Zone-Grouping.” This lets installers designate and name particular groups of rooms or listening zones for homeowners to activate at any time. For example, an installer could select the speakers in the family room, living room, dining room, and kitchen, and name the group “Party.” Then, when the customer has guests, they can activate the preprogrammed “Party” group to play music only in those rooms, and to simultaneously control the sound in the rooms.

NetStreams’ authorized DigiLinX dealers can download the latest version of the DigiLinX Dealer Setup Program, which includes the new firmware upgrade, from the dealer section of the company’s website, www.netstreams.com < http://www.netstreams.com/> .

DigiLinX uses NetStreams’ patent pending StreamNet technology to distribute audio over CAT5e using TCP/IP on an Ethernet network. DigiLinX converts audio from legacy sources (Tuner, CD Player, other) in real-time, to uncompressed audio streams, allowing up to 24-bit, studio-quality audio to be distributed throughout a home or commercial facility. StreamNet automatically solves the synchronization of an audio source to multiple rooms over a TCP/IP network, a function that no other system has been able to provide. By taking advantage of today’s cutting-edge computer networking technology, DigiLinX can give users access to literally millions of sources in an infinite number of rooms or zones.
