Audiovisual Pioneer Hoffman Video Launches New Division Specializing in Custom, Residential Theaters

Hoffman Has a Proud History as a Pioneer of Audiovisual Systems

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Hoffman Video, an industry leader in the design of integrated audiovisual systems, today announced the launch of its new, custom, high-end home theater division, which will design, install, and service custom home theaters throughout Southern California.

"Los Angeles is one of the fastest-growing markets for custom, residential audiovideo systems," states Andy Day, Hoffman Video Senior Systems Engineer. "What used to be a luxury is now available to anyone who desires the latest technology in their living quarters. Today's consumers are extremely savvy and know what they want from Blu-ray and HD DVD systems to wireless Y5 systems, and displays that are driven by digital light processing (DLP) or LCD technology -- and they demand the best. Hoffman has the know-how and ability to provide them with comprehensive design, engineering and post installation service. We also have relationships with the top tier of technology manufacturers. For example, we are the region's exclusive dealer/installer for Panasonic's state-of-the-art 103" HD plasma screen."

Andy reveals the top three requests from consumers building custom home theater systems as:

1. Video servers, which enable you to store all your favorite DVDs on a hard drive then access different DVDs on individual TVs throughout the house.

2. Touch panel control systems that manage everything from lighting controls to AV components are a must.

3. Wireless Y5 systems providing remote control, two-way communication throughout the home or estate from a computer. For these, Andy says one can virtually 'see' what lights are on, what DVDs are playing, and with the integration of close circuit TV cameras, monitor their security system from one screen.

He adds, "With today's technology, anything is possible."

Hoffman Video is a global technology leader known for its development of the exclusive Four-Wall-In (4WISM) Approach. 4WISM provides true synergy between world class technology, aesthetics of the environment and human ergonomics. By establishing strategic alliances with more than 200 manufacturers and service providers, the Hoffman 4WISM network supports the total project solution.

With the launch of its new home theater division, Hoffman Video offers consumers expertise as a pioneer in the AV marketplace, returning to its roots after concentrating on government, corporate, and educational facilities.

Founded in 1941 as Hoffman Electronics by fluorescent bulb salesman H. Leslie Hoffman, the family-owned company grew from a small radio manufacturer to a leading developer of new AV technologies contributing to the birth of transistor radios, color TVs, solar power and solar cell technology, satellite and antenna transmission, radar technology, semi conductors and airborne navigation systems.

Andy notes, "One of the reasons Hoffman Video has remained a leader is our ability to continually change and grow with the times due to our commitment to excellence in AV performance and unparalled commitment to customer satisfaction. With our newest division, we are orienting our expertise to contribute a thorough understanding of all the elements involved in engineering, installing and maintaining a state-of-the-art residential AV system. For years Hoffman has provided customized home theater expertise to our clients upon request and is delighted to now include this in our core offering."
