TERK'S NEW MS -EXT MULTISWITCH EXTENDER EXPANDS THE CONNECTIVITY OF ITS HIGH END T2 LINE

- Innovative Product Works With T2 Multiswitches To Create a Cascadable Distribution System -

Commack, NY, September 10, 2004 - T2, a division of TERK Technologies Corp. and a leader in signal management solutions and antenna technology, will introduce its versatile MS -EXT Multiswitch Extender to the high -end custom installation market at CEDIA 2004. The MS -EXT enables multiple T2 MS -516 and MS -58 Multiswitches to be daisy -chained and expands their overall satellite distribution capacity in a multi -room custom installation.


The TERK T2 MS -516 (5x16) and MS -58 (5x8) Multiswitch units are high -end signal distribution products that are optimized for the fast installation of satellite systems when incorporating additional cable TV and off -air antenna sources. They have received industry acclaim for their wiring efficiency, high -end appearance, and performance capabilities. With the introduction of the MS -EXT, T2 has taken the installation flexibility of the MS -516 and MS -58 a step further.

The MS -EXT is a compact, internally -amplified adapter that snaps directly onto the MS -516 or MS -58. It routes signals to the Multiswitch it's attached to and also provides a set of outputs that routes the signals to an additional Multiswitch. This expands the functionality of a T2 Multiswitch by enabling a number of them to be linked together, creating large -scale signal distribution systems. For example, four MS -516 units could be linked together to feed 64 satellite receivers from a single satellite dish.

The MS -EXT's internal amplification also allows for expandability without the introduction of signal loss. In addition, the snap -on feature enables current users of T2 Multiswitches to expand their satellite systems without rewiring their existing installations.

Pat Comunale, Vice President of Sales, TERK Technologies pointed out: "Our T2 Multiswitch products are among the most versatile signal distribution solutions on the market - and the MS -EXT adds even more functionality and utility to the line. The T2 Multiswitches and the MS -EXT are the most efficient and expandable products available for running more than 16 cable runs for satellite dishes, off -air antennas or cable TV signals, and installation professionals will be sure to appreciate the way they simplify the job of installing complex multi -room video distribution systems."

In common with all TERK T2 products, the MS -EXT is built to the highest standards, utilizing rugged, all -aluminum construction with a sealed housing, fixed ultra -low -noise
amplification, premium -quality internal components and other refinements to deliver the ultimate in performance and reliability.

Pricing and availability for the T2 MS -EXT will be announced.
