SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2007) - Colin Macnab, CEO of Artimi, will present market opportunities for Bluetooth and ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies during a wireless technology panel session at International CES 2008 in Las Vegas, January 7-10, 2008.

A twenty-year veteran in wireless, Macnab will share details on how UWB can transform consumer electronics. He is scheduled to participate in the World of Wireless panel on Wednesday, January 9, 2008 at 10:30am, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall S104-105. The session will review a number of wireless networking and broadband technologies and products, including WiMAX, UWB, 802.11n, and Bluetooth, and provide insights on what consumers can expect in the coming year.

At CES, Macnab will discuss how through UWB-based applications, including Certified Wireless USB and high-speed Bluetooth, there will be exciting new consumer use cases, driving UWB into new market sectors. Artimi's semiconductors allow consumers to transfer photos, music and video between portable consumer electronics devices at speeds of up to 480 Mbps. Based on UWB technology, this wireless connectivity runs faster than current wired connections between computers, peripherals and portable devices, such as cameras, media players and phones.
