Algolith Introduces Serial Option for the Mosquito HDMI™ and Flea HDMI™

New Installer-Friendly Accessory Makes Innovative Video Image Enhancers Compatible with Home Automation Systems

CEDIA EXPO, DENVER, CO, Sept. 14, 2006 - Algolith, a leading developer of video image enhancement solutions, introduces a new Serial Option for its popular Mosquito HDMI™ and Flea HDMI™ Home Theater Video Enhancers at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo 2006, beginning here today.

The Serial Option is a small accessory module designed to allow the Mosquito HDMI and Flea HDMI to be controlled by Home Automation systems like those produced by Crestron, AMX and other manufacturers. Control is achieved through the USB port, which both components possess. The Serial Option module includes a Serial, or RS -2322, connection, a USB port, and a power input. An important aspect of the Serial Option is that it provides bi -directional communication, which is vital for large systems in which the monitoring and polling of system components is required.

Use of the Serial Option is completely transparent to the performance of both the Mosquito HDMI and Flea HDMI, and enables installers to seamlessly integrate them into the control or automation routines of sophisticated home entertainment systems.

The Mosquito HDMI is a powerful, advanced video processor designed to reduce image noise on digital and HD video signals without any loss of detail for exceptionally sharp, noise -free images. It achieves this using a variety of image -processing techniques that allows users to instantly experience an improvement in picture quality.
The Flea HDMI is a small, unobtrusive, video processor designed to dramatically improve the picture quality of compressed Standard Definition and High Definition images. Weighing less than one pound and equal in size to a paperback novel, the Flea HDMI upgrades Algolith's groundbreaking original Flea with the addition of an HDMI input.

Both the Mosquito HDMI and Flea HDM also include the new edition, Version 2.0, of Algolith's Operating Software, which represents a major advance in performance, rendering both components more efficient and effective, while lending a more accurate quality to their reproduction. Both components are essential systems addition for serious Home Theater enthusiasts.

The new Serial Option is available now from authorized Algolith dealers at a suggested retail price of $495. It can be seen with Algolith's other outstanding products in Booth 375, Colorado Convention Center, during the show.
