NUVO ENHANCES PRODUCT LINE WITH NEW D AMPLIFIER™ FROM PHILIPS SEMICONDUCTORS

NuVo Technologies announces the revolutionary Generation D™, a design protocol utilizing digital amplification for energy conservation, cool operation, and clear, precise sound.

September 6, 2003, CINCINNATI, OH -NuVo Technologies announces the revolutionary Generation D™, a design protocol utilizing digital amplification for energy conservation, cool operation, and clear, precise sound. NuVo will initially use the design standard in the new eight -listening -zone, six -source, whole -house audio system, called ConcertoTM . The protocol will also be used in the first -quarter 2004 production of NuVo's well -respected EssentiaTM six -listening -zone, six -source system.


The Generation D protocol utilizes the D Amplifier™ Semiconductors solution by Philips that provides more robust power to all channels while decreasing power consumption by a minimum of 55% and dramatically reducing heat generation.

The Generation D protocol also includes the following:
· An RS232 -operational port that allows for real -time system control
· FR4 fiberglass printed circuit boards to reduce electromagnetic interference
· Gold -plated circuit board connectors that provide long -term reliability
· Smart infrared control allowing identical source equipment use for multiple inputs
· Rigorous pre -shipment testing -a 12 -hour load -and -temperature cycling test with 36 on/off cycles to ensure 100% performance

Key to the Generation D approach is the utilization of the D Amplifier™ IC by Philips.

The highly reliable D Amplifier™ reduces energy consumption, dramatically reduces heat, and delivers a stunningly clear sound. The D Amplifier™ is also speaker -friendly and provides soft compression when overloaded -a safeguard that prevents clipping damage to system speakers from potentially destructive high decibel−level play.

The benefits of employing the D Amplifier™ are clear. David Rodarte, President of NuVo Technologies, emphasizes the value of the new protocol and digital amplifier: "We will once again offer a strong value to the market that incorporates leading -edge technology." Rutton Ruttonsha, Vice President BL Audio Solutions for Philips Semiconductors, matches his enthusiasm: "We are very pleased to see our D Amplifier™ utilized by NuVo Technologies in the home audio marketplace. Their concept of high quality centralized audio control is a goal that we share in our developments towards the connected home of the future."

NuVo Technologies, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is an innovator in the engineering, manufacturing, and distribution of high -quality audio systems. NuVo offers quality electronics that represent the best value in class.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Pr©cis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
