OWLink's HD Digital Light Link FO2850 Records One of the Highest Scores Ever in the Video Accessories Category; Award Demonstrates High Interest for HD Digital Home Solutions at CES

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - OWLink Technology, a leading provider of innovative technology that transmits high definition digital video, audio and control signals over a single transparent fiber optic link, today announced the company's HD Digital Light Link FO2850 was selected as the Best of Innovations, Design and Engineering Award winner for the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The 2008 CES, held January 7-10 in Las Vegas, is the world's largest consumer electronics show.

Judges awarded OWLink's HD Digital Light Link FO2850 with one of the highest scores of the Video Accessories. OWLink's patented technology enables the transmission of uncompressed high-definition digital video, audio and control signals over a single transparent fiber link at distances up to 1,000 ft. FO2850 is capable of transmitting 1080p HDMI, stereo audio, USB, and IR signals simultaneously using one DLI™ Fiber Optic cable. This product is well suited for connecting a set-top box, a DVD player, or a PC to a HDTV, along with many other innovative applications. The DLI™ Fiber Optic cable is about the same thickness of high-test fishing line and is virtually invisible to the naked eye after installation, eliminating the need to drill holes in drywall or put up with visible wires after installation.

"We are delighted with the verdict of the judges in selecting our FO2800 series of products for this very prestigious award," said Paul Tzeng, President and CEO, OWLink Technology. "These products are part of a broad product offering that provides for the transmission of high definition digital video, audio and control signals simultaneously through a thin transparent DLI™ Fiber Optic cable within a 1,000 ft footprint which fits the requirements of most homes."

OWLink has multiple OEM partnerships in place with digital home entertainment market leaders that will expand the company's customer base and create new avenues for additional product placement. OWLink is positioned to be a strong technology leader in developing innovative products that transmit high-definition A/V signals over a fiber optic link.

OWLink's products transmit uncompressed video/audio and comply with Studio-approved HDCP content protection technologies. OWLink technology enables home users to place the video and audio equipments in the most convenient location in the home without opening walls, ceilings or floors to run cable. By deploying a simple A/V switch, one set of source devices can be accessed by multiple displays throughout the home. Each display can access different video and audio source devices, making it possible to watch the game on high-definition television while listening to music from the stereo system.

The award-winning FO2800/FO2850 components easily lend themselves to commercial applications such as sports bars, public displays, gyms, and security centers to name a few. Because OWLink's technology is more cost-effective, upgrading complete systems for high definition are less expensive for commercial and home deployments.

Demonstrations of OWLink's award-winning products will be held at the company's CES suite at the Wynn Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and at the company's booth Innovations POD IP232 at the Sands Convention Center.
