EPOS Breaks Into U.S. Consumer Electronics Market With Revolutionary 3-D Positioning Products

Positioning Technology Innovator Takes Market by Storm With Suite of Consumer and Business Products; Inaugural Launch Includes Unprecedented Wireless Digital Pen & Mouse

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 13, 2005 -- EPOS, a leading provider of advanced, multi-dimensional digital positioning technology, today announced its entrance into the U.S. consumer electronics, mobile and interactive gaming markets. EPOS' break-through technology enables next-generation, positioning-driven applications and consumer electronics products at mass market pricing appeal.

Applications and products that can benefit from EPOS technology are limitless, including a wireless digital pen and mouse product for PCs, a mobile phone stylus that turns one's device into an instant virtual touch-screen and a virtual gaming product that provides the user with full control and 3-D interactivity.

To kickoff its U.S. launch, this week EPOS is announcing its first product specifically geared towards the digital consumer electronics market -- a wireless digital pen & mouse bundled solution. This multipurpose, wireless PC peripheral enables a diversified audience, including cyber teens to students to urban professionals and the elderly, to wirelessly capture and display handwritten notes on a PC, point and click with full mouse functionality, draw and share sketches digitally via email and messaging applications, and transform handwritten notes to text, all seamlessly and in real-time.

Unlike competitive products, EPOS' wireless digital pen & mouse does not require special paper or a tablet, runs on minimal battery consumption and retails at an extremely low price point.

"EPOS' new wireless digital pen & mouse is the first step of a full suite of next generation digital consumer electronic devices powered by positioning technology. We are excited to follow this inaugural launch at CES with another break-through EPOS product," said Oded Eliashiv, chief executive officer of EPOS. "EPOS' vision is to change the way users interact with their digital environment. By introducing advanced positioning technology to PC, mobile and gaming products, we hope to bring a whole new dimension of digital freedom to the consumer electronics world."

EPOS' positioning technology is unique because it is based on the transmission of ultrasonic acoustic waves between two or more devices via a "Transmitter" and a "Receiver." The transmitter, embedded in a device such as a pen or other wireless terminal, sends constant acoustic signals to the receiver that in turn, uses them to measure the exact distance and position of the device.

Unlike previous positioning technologies utilizing acoustic measurement, EPOS is the first company to transform the acoustic domain into digital. By digitizing the acoustic signal, EPOS' technology can pinpoint the exact distance and position of the device as well as support several devices simultaneously.
