OpenPeak Announces Thinking Homes Developer Kit For OEMs

GREATER FLEXIBILITY AND SPEED-TO-MARKET FOR OEM PARTNERS

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA AND LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - January 06, 2005 - OpenPeak Inc., a leading provider of software enabling control of digital content, consumer electronics and systems in the Digital Home, today announced the availability of a developer kit for the company's flagship Thinking Homes software. The Thinking Homes Developer Kit - which includes a set of libraries from OpenPeak and supports Macromedia Flash - will enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to design their own custom interfaces for OpenPeak Thinking Homes control software.


"In making the Thinking Homes Developer Kit available to OEMs, we help them accelerate their deployment time and increase their ability to provide dynamic and graphically -rich content that is customized for their specific products and applications," said Andrew Lona, OpenPeak's Chief Marketing Officer. "Because Macromedia Flash is widely used, OEMs can take advantage of the Developer Kit in designing interfaces for the large number of platforms that already support Flash players," Lona added.

The OEM -created interface for the Thinking Homes control software is designed to be deployed on a single remote control device, including those capable of running a Flash player, such as PCs, PDAs and tablet PCs.

"OpenPeak intends to continue to expand the integration of its Thinking Homes software in OEM products throughout the year and the Developer Kit is one way to accelerate adoption," Lona said.
