IDX CAM~WAVE HD Camera Is Wire-Free With AMIMON's Wireless Uncompressed HD Technology

Excellent Quality, Convenience and Cost Savings; No Wires, No Latency, No Signal Delay

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless high-definition (HD) video, has cooperated with IDX, a premier manufacturer and supplier of batteries and equipment to the international broadcast and professional video industry, in the introduction of its CW-5HD, the world's first Wireless Uncompressed HD system for professional HD cameras. The IDX CAM~WAVE system, a recipient of the NAB 2008 STAR Award, uses AMIMON's revolutionary Wireless High-Definition Interface technology.

Operating in the 5.1-5.8GHz unlicensed band, the CAM~WAVE HD (Model CW-5HD), along with AMIMON's technology, is capable of delivering wireless full-bandwidth uncompressed HD-SDI and SD-SDI pictures, live and in real time with virtually no latency (less than 1 millisecond delay). AMIMON's technology uses a unique video-modem approach to deliver clear, artifact-free images, wirelessly up to 150 feet in line-of-sight shooting or 100 feet through walls. Unique to CAM~WAVE HD wireless systems, no compression allows productions to seamlessly intercut cameras with other wired cameras and avoid lip-sync errors.

"AMIMON's technology enables videographers shooting in high-definition at remote condition to move around freely without the worries of wires," said Tony Iwamoto, executive vice president of IDX System Technology, Inc. in the Americas. "This is an unprecedented breakthrough, one IDX is excited to be a pioneer of, and one that will have a profound impact on the video and digital film production industry."

"AMIMON's technology will help IDX revolutionize the way professional video is captured in the field and at live events," said Noam Geri, AMIMON's vice president of marketing and business development. "Our partnership with IDX speaks to the robustness and quality of AMIMON's technology. The video production industry can only use the best and AMIMON's Wireless High-Definition Interface technology will become the wireless technology of choice for remote shooting and monitoring for video and film."

IDX's CAM~WAVE HD system also offers the following distinctive features:

--  Supports all ATSC HD video formats with two channels of embedded audio
--  Complies with all major international engineering standards, including
    FCC, CE and RoHS specifications
--  Sleek and light-weight, weighing only 1.7 pounds
--  No visible antenna
--  Conservative with 11w power consumption
    

CAM~WAVE HD systems will be available in early Q3 2008 from IDX and its worldwide network of partners.
