Oregan Networks Provides TV Browser, User Interface Engine and Media Streaming Technology for Intel

Oregan™ Media Browser compliments the launch of Intel® 854 chipset at IDF Taipei, delivering broadband entertainment and home networking functionality

INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, Taiwan, April 11, 2005 - Intel® architecture for consumer electronics and Consumer Premises Equipment (CPE) platforms is powering Oregan's first full -scale implementation of Oregan™ Media Browser, which incorporates an embedded web browser and User Interface (UI) engine, Intel® NMPR -conformant home media server and player, and IPTV / VOD client - in a single convergent software solution.


"Intel brings together hardware and software developers, fostering innovation and cutting -edge technology. We are happy to be working with industry leaders such as Oregan Networks who employs industry standards for advanced web UI technology and media streaming," Said Joe Jensen, General Manager, Consumer Electronics Group, Intel's Digital Home Group. "Oregan's User Interface engine, supporting Dynamic HTML and Flash® animations with sound, facilitates a consistent and engaging user experience, providing a foundation for building user -friendly convergent devices for the digital home."

Reed Hinkel, Oregan Networks VP of Business Development said: "The Intel® 854 chipset addresses specific challenges of the digital home entertainment segment. Media processing tasks require a powerful processor, which can mean increased heat dissipation and noise. The Intel 854 chipset is designed to work with the 600 MHz Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Intel® Celeron® M processor, which offers high performance and very low power consumption. Platforms based on this processor and chipset require only a passive (fan -less) thermal solution, which is well -suited for the living room environment. The support of the H.264 codec, widely adopted by the Asian telecommunications operators and steadily gaining traction in North America and Europe, makes the Intel 854 chipset an ideal solution for the growing IPTV and VOD market."
