Introduces Industry's First Non-Invasive, Do-It-Yourself, FlatWire ReadyTM Home Theater Design Kit

Hendersonville, TN and Las Vegas, NV - January 8, 2004 - DeCorp Americas, Inc., the leader in advanced flat wiring and interconnect technologies, today introduced its FlatWire ReadyTM Flat -Panel Television Installation Kit. The kit is the first packaged product that enables do -it -yourselfers and professionals to easily and affordably complete a clutter -free, non -invasive installation of a flat -panel television in a home or business. It is currently being featured in the DeCorp Americas booth, #19495, at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"Home theater installation has traditionally been a painstaking process requiring a significant investment that drives up the total cost of the home theater. FlatWire changes all that," said Robb Sexton, president and CEO of DeCorp Americas. "With the introduction of this installation kit, we are helping to usher in the flat -panel revolution. Enabling consumers to hang and connect a flat -panel television easily and affordably makes it a luxury more readily embraced by home theater enthusiasts and design -conscious decorators alike."
FlatWire Ready wiring solutions are patented ultra -thin, surface -mounted wires and associated connectors and installation products that deliver high performance and optimize flexibility in decorating decisions. The wires virtually disappear under paint, wallpaper or carpet. The revolutionary design complements the "from fat to flat" evolution of home theater systems by providing an affordable and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional installation and wiring methods.
