NetStreams'® New KeyLinX™ KL100 and KL200 Intuitive Keypads Work Seamlessly with the DigiLinX™ IP -Ba

KeyLinX™ Keypads Connect Directly to the System's SpeakerLinX™ Amplifiers to Provide Perfect Audio Control for Smaller Rooms or Subzones

Austin, TX - February 25, 2005 - NetStreams, the leader in IP -based Networked Audio/Video distribution, is pleased to introduce the KeyLinX KL100 and KL200 single -gang in -wall keypads, designed to work seamlessly with NetStreams DigiLinX IP -based Multi -Room Audio System. Ideal for basic audio control in smaller rooms or sub -zones, both of these keypads can be connected directly to the EIM (Expansion Interface Module) connection on the SpeakerLinX Room Controller / IP -based Amplifier. Both KeyLinX keypads will begin shipping in March of 2005.

"We developed the KeyLinX KL100 and KL200 keypads to expand the pricing options of a typical DigiLinX installation. Both pads are excellent entry -level solutions for rooms where an LCD touchpanel controller is not necessary, such as a smaller room or a sub -zone," said Herman Cardenas, founder and chief executive officer of NetStreams.

KeyLinX keypads feature 10 laser -etched hard key buttons for easy and intuitive source selection and operation. Attractive, green LEDs clearly display the volume level of the source equipment, and the PC -based DigiLinX Dealer SetUp Program makes programming the hard keys a simple operation.

Both the KL100 and the KL200 feature two EIM connectors on the rear panel - one to connect to the SpeakerLinX Room Controller/IP -based Amplifier and one to connect to an optional Audio Port, thus adding a local source to that room. Both keypads also feature a built -in IR window for the pass -through of IR to a local source, which may be connected to the optional Audio Port.

In addition, the KeyLinX KL200 features a built -in microphone for future Voice -over -IP applications, as well as another LED for "monitor," "do -not -disturb," and "message" modes.

NetStreams' DigiLinX family of IP -based products offers very high -quality and high -performance multi -room audio, control capabilities never seen before, and a robust user experience only available in high -cost systems. This innovative product line, using NetStreams' StreamNet™ patent pending technology, is the first IP -based multi -room audio system in the custom market; 'IP -based' meaning a system that is not only controlled over IP, but also distributes its audio and video over packet -switched streams. DigiLinX delivers on the promise of convergence, effectively marrying networking technologies with hi -fidelity audio -and later video -marking the introduction of 'Networked Digital Entertainment'.
