RTcom USA Wins Coveted Electronic House Expo Multi -Room Award

HS-88M Matrix Router Honored as Best Product in Video Switching Distribution Category

Sparta, NJ - (November 11, 2008) - RTcom USA Inc., provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer audio -visual and personal computer systems, is proud to announce the selection of the HS -88M high -definition multimedia interface (HDMI) Matrix Router by the Electronic House Expo (EHX) as the best product in the Video Switching Distribution category. The Seventh Annual EHX Multi -Room Awards honor products displaying exceptional innovation, functionality, and value.



The HS -88M set itself apart from other products in the Video Switching Distribution category as the industry's first HDMI matrix router with eight in/eight out ports. With the HS -88M, HDMI signals from audio -visual products - such as computers, and other devices for business users, or satellite set top boxes, Blu -ray disc players, and more for consumers - can be sent simultaneously to eight different displays or A/V receivers without degradation in signals.

The HS -88M features full High -bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compatibility, alleviating the problem of HDCP encoding, which previously blocked signals from being transmitted from audio -visual products to multiple displays.

"The EHX Multi -Room Awards are one of the most prestigious recognitions a manufacturer serving the home theater and custom electronics industry can receive," said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. "Our philosophy at RTcom is to provide high -quality, cutting -edge products to professional home electronics integrators and to be acknowledged by the esteemed Multi -Room Awards panel for our innovation is truly gratifying."

The HS -88M Matrix Router is currently available at an MSRP of $7,499.00. To purchase the products customers in U.S. may contact Aurora Multimedia at (732) 591 -5800 or sales@auroramultimedia.com and international customers may contact RTcom USA at (973) 383 -4878 or rtcomusa@earthlink.net.
