Xperinet, Inc. Launches Wall -Mount Player
Small Form -Factor Media Client Mounts Behind a Flat Panel Display,
Streaming 1080p Video and Music From Blu -ray Equipped MIRV Servers.
Annapolis, Maryland, August 30, 2007 - Xperinet, Inc. announced today the introduction of
a small form -factor media player. The device, designated MIRV Tarpon, packs a powerful
video decoding system into a 9"x5" x1" chassis that can be mounted behind a plasma
display. The Tarpon decodes a broad array of video formats found on download services and
Blu -ray™ in 1080p resolution, including MPEG -2, MPEG -4, H.264, DIVX, and WMV -HD,
bringing stunning resolution and color to every room in the house.
In yet another first for the Custom Install Industry, Xperinet Tarpon represents a monumental
advancement in the evolution of Media Servers. Its small, fanless design makes it perfect for
bedrooms or other locations where equipment noise and visibility cannot be tolerated. And
installation is made simple by connecting HDMI to the display for integrated HD video and
digital sound. From there a simple Cat -5e connection to an Ethernet switch makes it ready to
serve up video and music from a MIRV server. A direct IR jack is provided for connecting a
remote IR receiver or link to an IR repeater system, although Crestron, AMX, and other
touchpanel systems can be easily integrated using RS -232 or IP control.
"Custom Install demands that things disappear," remarked John Cox, CEO of Xperinet.
"Creating a player that hides behind the display makes this easy to accomplish for secondary
viewing rooms where you don't want an equipment rack." By placing a Tarpon player at
each display around the house, the entire library of video and music stored on the MIRV is
instantly available for viewing. Marine and RV applications are also perfect for the Tarpon,
where space is at a premium, and exhaustive ventilation cannot be assured.

The Tarpon Model MC -4100 is scheduled for shipment beginning in late October 2007, and
can be seen on display at the CEDIA expo in Denver September 6 -9. The device is backward
compatible with legacy MIRV servers, and can be used in combination with Orion and
Taurus MIRV clients which enable remote content loading and local disk playback.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
