Zoran Delivers Enhanced IPS Interpreter for XPS Printer and MFP Manufacturers

Higher Performance Demonstrated at GraphExpo 2007 in Chicago

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - September 10, 2007 - Zoran Corporation (NASDAQ: ZRAN) announced that a new release of its IPS page description language (PDL) interpreter for the XML Paper Specification (XPS) is now available to printer and multifunction peripheral (MFP) manufacturers.

Zoran is demonstrating its IPS interpreter for XPS in the XPSLand Pavilion, Booth# 5451E, at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois, as part of the GraphExpo 2007 conference from September 9 to 12.

This latest IPS interpreter for XPS release delivers enhanced HD Photo support, shortened printing time of multi-page documents and more efficient memory usage. Additionally, Zoran's updated IPS interpreter for XPS has been thoroughly tested for compatibility with the output of new and existing applications and print drivers that create XPS documents.

"We have gained nine design wins from top printer and MFP manufacturers for our IPS interpreter for XPS. When those are combined with our membership on the Ecma TC46 committee to standardize the XPS format, Zoran is clearly providing industry leadership for this powerful new language," said Simon Dolan, senior vice president and general manager, Zoran's Imaging Division. "Our more than 15 years of PDL development expertise, ongoing testing, and improvements to comply with evolving standards and new emitters, are all demonstrated in the performance of this new release of the IPS interpreter for XPS."

"We are pleased to have Zoran demonstrating its IPS interpreter for XPS in the XPSLand Pavilion," said John Ingraham, managing director of BlickTek and editor of XPSReview. "Zoran's commitment to full compatibility with current XPS emitters and the portability of the IPS interpreter for XPS to host-based and embedded environments make the Zoran demonstration a must-see."
