Home Theater Surround Sound Manufacturers Champion Summit Wireless Technology for 2010 Production

The Standard for High Definition, Wireless Home Theater Fidelity and Set Up at CES International

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - Focus Enhancements, Inc., a leading supplier of wireless audio technologies, partners with multiple speaker contract manufacturers to bring products to market using Summit Wireless™ technology. Summit, an integrated circuit, provides 24 bit uncompressed audio, with a pure digital path from the source to the speakers, combined with distortion-free programmable filters and crossovers, tunable to the characteristics of the speaker cabinets and drivers, delivering unrivaled clarity and frequency response. The technology will be integrated into a variety of audio platforms including, speakers, audio video receivers, DVD players, digital televisions, game platforms (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii), MP3 players, docking stations, sound bars, set top boxes and wireless audio hubs.

Partners demonstrating Summit integrated solutions at this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2010) include SB Acoustics, Solidex Audio Corporation, Tymphany, each offering turnkey speaker designs, Anam Electronics with an audio transmission solution for AVRs and Hansong offering wireless hubs.

Summit is the industry's only home theater technology that provides a coherent sound field instantly with the push of a button, adjusting to the listener's exact location, delivering unprecedented sound quality in a wireless system that is easy to set up. On power up, Summit technology automatically performs 3D Audio Mapping™ to identify the number speakers in the home theater, scalable from 2.0 to 7.1, and creates a precise map of their location to within one inch. Summit then calibrates the system by assigning each speaker the correct audio channel, calculates the correct audio delay and adjusts the volume level to the listener's position, making it the technology of choice for high-end home theater audio.

"We are thrilled that the major original equipment and design manufacturers delivering home theater surround sound systems have embraced Summit Wireless as a must have technology for their future audio products," said Tony Parker, vice president of marketing for Focus Enhancements. "Consumers can be assured that a Summit integrated product will give them the true high definition surround sound they have been longing for in a wireless solution."

Focus Enhancements will be showcasing Summit Wireless technologies integrated with a leading DTV brand, wireless audio hub, AVR, Blu-ray player and loud speakers at CES International, Venetian Towers, suites 30 - 316 and 30-318, in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6 - 10, 2010.
