NetStreams® Brings IP -based Audio Training Classroom to Stamford CEDIA Regional

Leading Force of IP-based Multi-Room Audio Distribution Joins Renown Speaker Manufacturer, Polk Audio, to Host Courses at CEDIA Regional in Connecticut, Offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to Participants

Austin, TX - May 3, 2005 - Good news for all New England -based CEDIA custom installers, NetStreams, the leader in IP -based Networked Audio/Video distribution, is coming to a CEDIA Regional event in Stamford, CT (May 14 -18, 2005). Continuing its commitment to train custom installers in the latest technology in IP -based home entertainment, the Austin -based company, which produced the industry's first IP -based Multi -Room Audio system, will hold courses at CEDIA's 2005 Regional Education event at the Stamford Marriott, to teach attendees about the revolutionary capabilities of IP -based multi -room audio. Participants will learn all about the company's breakthrough DigiLinX™ system, and gain CEDIA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completing the course. NetStreams is also teaming up with Polk Audio to show the benefits of integrating Polk's award -winning IP -addressable loudspeakers with DigiLinX. The LC265Ip is the world's first in -wall speaker that can be controlled via an IP system.


"NetStreams' CEDIA Regional courses not only show and prepare attendees on how to take advantage of DigiLinX's capabilities, but award CEDIA CEUs, so it's a win -win opportunity," said Petro Shimonishi, Vice President of Marketing at NetStreams. "Our research projects that within three years, 80% of all multi -room audio systems installed will be IP -based. The DigiLinX system is the first and only in the market that harnesses IP architecture to allow installers to build audio systems with studio -quality sound, virtually unlimited number of sources, and multiple rooms."

`We love the DigiLinX™ system and see it as a significant step forward in distributed audio performance and consumer convenience,` said Polk Product Line Manager, Al Baron. `We specifically designed our LC265Ip tri -amplified IP -addressable loudspeaker to take full advantage of the performance and control capabilities of the DigiLinX™ system to bring consumers sound quality and convenience that simply cannot be matched by any other combination of audio distribution network and in -wall loudspeaker.`

At alternate manufacturer active training sessions, NetStreams will explain and showcase the unique abilities of the industry's firs IP -based Distributed Audio System -DigiLinX. DigiLinX is intelligent, easy -to -use, accommodates unlimited rooms and sources, requires minimal programming, and features remote diagnostics and upgrade paths. Polk Audio will discuss the challenges and solutions to obtaining high performance sound when using in -wall and in -ceiling speakers. Polk's award winning IP addressable, DSP controlled in -wall, in -ceiling speakers, and multi -room uses for the new Component XM Tuner will also be discussed.
