AMIMON's WHDI Technology to Enable a Leading Manufacturer's LCD TV to Receive Uncompressed 1080p HD Video From CE Source Devices Wirelessly

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 4, 2008) - AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless high-definition (HD) video, has partnered with a leading consumer electronics manufacturer to demonstrate a wireless HDTV with embedded WHDI technology capable of receiving uncompressed 1080p 60Hz HD video streams wirelessly.

"The WHDI™ 1080p HDTV exhibited at CES demonstrates a new class of wireless connectivity," said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, AMIMON chairman and CEO. "WHDI enables TV manufacturers to offer consumers new possibilities to connect video sources to HDTVs throughout the home."

AMIMON's WHDI technology uses a unique video-modem approach to deliver wirelessly uncompressed HDTV. With a range of over 100 feet (30m), through multiple walls, and with latency of less than one millisecond, WHDI offers universal wireless whole-home HD connectivity with quality equivalent to that achieved with wires.

"WHDI is setting a new standard for whole-home HD audio, video and control connectivity," said Dr. David Lee, HDMI visionary and a member of AMIMON's board of directors. "WHDI technology enables an enriched customer experience by enabling high-quality and robust connections between video sources and TVs throughout the home."

The 1080p WHDI LCD TV that will be demonstrated at CES embeds the AMIMON WHDI chipset (AMN2110/AMN2210), which was named an International CES Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the enabling technologies category.
