OPPO's HM-31 HDMI Switch Receives Editor's Choice Rating From Motherboards.org

Motherboards.org Reviewer Concludes That OPPO's 3x1 HDMI Switch Is "An Excellent Switch Box Well Worth the $99 Price Tag"

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - OPPO Digital (www.oppodigital.com), a renowned leader in up-converting DVD players, today announced another key endorsement for its HM-31 HDMI Switch. Motherboards.org awarded the 3x1 HDMI switch with its Editor's Choice rating, noting that the HM-31 is "an excellent switch box well worth the $99 price tag."

Equipped with three HDMI inputs, the HM-31 lets users expand the single HDMI input port on their TV to seamlessly connect up to three HDMI sources, such as a DVD or Blu-Ray, player, cable or satellite receivers, gaming consoles, HDMI equipped video card, or other set top boxes. OPPO's switch is compatible with all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p and PC resolutions up to 1920x1200 and is one of the few HDMI switches to pass the official HDMI 1.3 certification test.

With HDMI 1.3 certification, the HM-31 is capable of supporting the latest generation of home theater products, delivering advanced features such as Deep Color and a signal equalizer. And its EIA/CEA-861D, DVI 1.0, and HDCP 1.1 compliancy, along with support for DDC and HPD switching, ensures maximum device compatibility.

"Today's home theater typically includes multiple HDMI devices, making an HDMI video switch an essential element in the home theater. Our goal was to address the HDMI connectivity problem by creating a high-performance HDMI switch that any home theater owner could easily purchase," said Jason Liao, vice-president of product development at OPPO Digital. "We're honored by this recent recognition from Motherboards.org and believe it affirms our leading role in breaking new price-performance barriers in the home theater."

Motherboards.org reviewer Ben Sun summarized his evaluation process and results, "In the test system I set up using a 52" HDTV from Samsung, a PS3 and a Blu-Ray Drive from Sony. The PS3 outputted the same as connecting it directly to the HDTV. The Blu-Ray Drive played 1080p Blu-Ray Discs with no loss of quality on the switch that I could see. Switching to the Cable TV was a simple matter of pushing the channel switch on the remote and it worked as well."

The award-winning HM-31 is available today at an estimated retail price of $99 and can be ordered directly from OPPO Digital's web site www.oppodigital.com or through an authorized reseller.
