DivX(R) Movies; Also Stores/Plays Digital Pictures, MP3 Music and Much More



    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW --
 Hauppauge Digital, Inc. (Nasdaq:   HAUP), a leading developer and manufacturer
 of digital video, TV, and data broadcast receiver products for personal
 computers, today announced its new Portable MediaMVP(R), an all-in-one
 multimedia storage/playback device, at the 2005 International Consumer
 Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  Combining small size, a 20 Gigabyte hard disk
 drive and a wide format 7-inch LCD display with video/audio recording
 capability, the Portable MediaMVP allows anyone to enjoy videos, movies,
 music, photos and much more, anywhere and anytime they wish.
     Hauppauge's Portable MediaMVP is the ultimate personal entertainment
 device.  The unit's 20GB hard drive is large enough to store dozens of movies
 or thousands of MP3 music files, and is also capable of holding an entire
 photo collection.  Users can enjoy the Portable MediaMVP when traveling for
 business or pleasure; what's more, the device can be connected to a TV using
 the A/V cable set (included), making it a perfect platform for viewing videos
 or photos at home or in a hotel room.
     "Unlike some Personal Media Players, the Portable MediaMVP doesn't
 sacrifice screen size for portability," said Ken Plotkin, CEO of Hauppauge
 Digital, Inc.  "This unit is like a personal home theater system in the palm
 of your hand."
 
     16:9 LTPS Display Technology
     The Portable MediaMVP utilizes a high-end Low Temperature Polycrystalline
 Silicon (LTPS) liquid crystal display to bring big-screen excitement to the
 world of Personal Media Players.  The 7-inch display has a 16:9 widescreen
 format with a 854 x 640 resolution and has a 170-degree viewing area for
 clear, bright playback regardless of user angle.
     Adding to the unit's movie/video enjoyment is the ability to store and
 play both MPEG-4 and DivX(R) videos.  These cutting-edge video formats provide
 a theater-quality sound and visual experience; other supported formats include
 XVID, Microsoft WMV and Apple QuickTime.  Individuals can also record TV shows
 in MPEG-4 or, with Hauppauge's SoftPVR(TM) and WinTV (not included), in DivX
 format for later playback.
 
     Music, Photos
     The Portable MediaMVP doubles as a top-notch MP3 player thanks to its
 large storage capacity and easy onscreen navigation.  Users can download and
 enjoy WMA as well as MP3 files from a PC, or record voice or music in MP3
 format.
     As a photo organizer, Hauppauge's new PMP device holds thousands of JPEG
 or GIF files.  Users can even view whole photo albums-vacations, birthdays,
 family get-togethers or other occasions-as a slide show with music background.
 
     Accessories
     In addition to its Li-polymer battery, the Portable MediaMVP can be run on
 12v power, making it easy to use in car, boat, or motor home.  The unit comes
 with a 12v power adapter for connection to any 110v wall outlet.
     Other accessories included with the Portable MediaMVP are a carrying case,
 USB 2.0 cable (also supports USB 1.1), stereo ear buds, and A/V cable for
 connection to any composite video TV (PAL or NTSC).
 
     Pricing and Availability
     Hauppauge's Portable MediaMVP Media Player is priced at $699.00 (MSRP) and
 will ship in Q1 of 2005.  The unit is on display during 2005 International CES
 from Hauppauge's exhibit, Booth 36614, South Hall 4 (Upper Level) of the Las
 Vegas Convention Center.
