RTcom USA Announces Advancement for Gaming, Home Theater Industries with Development of Four -Source Display HDMI Matrix Router with Full HDCP Compliance

Digital Extender HS-44M Router Delivers Four Audio and Video Signals to Four Different Displays

Las Vegas, (January 8, 2009) - RTcom USA Inc., provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer audio -visual and personal computer systems, announces the HS -44M, a high -definition multimedia interface (HDMI) matrix router with 4 -in 4 -out ports and full HDCP (High -bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compliance, ideal for uses ranging from gaming to home theater.


With the HS -44M HDMI Matrix Router, high -definition audio and video signals from up to four sources can be sent to as many as four displays. The HDMI V1.3 compliance of the HS -44M Matrix Router allows for the highest quality routing of these sources' signals. Sources can include popular home audio -visual products such as DVD players, TiVo systems, satellite set -top boxes, and Blu -ray disc players. The HS -44M alleviates the problem of HDCP encoding, which previously blocked signals from being transmitted from audio -visual products to multiple displays.

"The demand for high -definition digital video has steadily been gaining popularity in both professional and consumer digital A/V and PC connectivity markets," said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. "We designed the HS -44M Matrix Router in response to consumer and professional integrator demands, and intend to remain the top developer of cutting -edge digital connectivity products."
