AVERMEDIA® WINS INTEL® TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION ACCELERATED AWARD

AVerMedia AVerTV MCE Media Expansion Card Wins Prestigious Intel TIA Award in Digital Home Category at 2005 Intel Developer Forum

MILPITAS, CA - September 26, 2005 - AVerMedia® Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of digital multimedia and presentation technology announced today that the AVerMedia AVerTVTM MCE Media Expansion Card won the Intel Technology Innovation Accelerated (TIA) Award for the Digital Home Category. The Intel TIA award is presented each year at the semi annual Intel Developers Forum (IDF) to recognize technological advancements and innovation while building off of Intel's new platform strategy.


The AVerTV MCE Media Expansion Card is an x16 PCIExpress* dual analog TV tuner featuring hardware MPEG2 compression. The Media Expansion Card has been designed around the Intel 945G platform SDVO interface technology in order to support its onboard DVI output capability. This concept allows users or systems integrators to build mainstream Media Center PCs with Dual TV tuners on an Intel 945G motherboard (featuring integrated graphics capabilities). AVerTV MCE Media Expansion Card designed specifically for use with the Intel motherboard.

Previously, the MCE platform required a high end and costly graphics card to actually process the video on the screen. These high -end cards also provided DVI output option for users using higher resolution LCD or Plasma monitor, however the combination of Intel's integrated motherboard and the Media Expansion card eliminates the need for the additional high -end graphics card since the graphics and DVI output are included.

"Winning this award is a great honor for AVerMedia and a tribute to our technical and development expertise," says Dominic Wong, Technical Marketing Manager for AVerMedia Technologies, Inc., USA. "Between our own internal innovation and relationships with such highly regarded organizations as Intel, AVerMedia will continue to be on the leading edge of multimedia technology."

"Promoting technology leadership efforts driving Intel's evolution to a platform strategy, the Technology Innovation Accelerated Awards recognize companies and individuals who take a creative approach in creating exciting new products through technologies that promise to exceed customer expectations," said IDF General Manager Rob Chapman.
