Hauppauge MediaMVP(R) Network Media Player Offers Low Cost Networked Audio and Video for Electronic Home Integrators MediaMVP Priced as Low as $80/Unit; Device can be Mounted Inside Walls or

Ceilings, Enabling Music/Video/Photo Playback Over Home Network



    ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hauppauge Digital, Inc.
 (Nasdaq:   HAUP), a leading developer and manufacturer of digital video, TV, and
 data broadcast receiver products for personal computers, today announced it is
 setting a new price/performance standard for electronic home componentry via
 its MediaMVP(R) network media player.  The announcement, made during the 2005
 International Builders Show in Orlando, is good news for home builders and
 electronic home systems integrators wishing to offer cost effective, PC-ready
 whole house digital media networks to handle the distribution of music, video
 and digital pictures around the home.
     Hauppauge's MediaMVP allows PC-based Music, Video and Pictures ("MVP") to
 be played anywhere in the home over a home local area network.  The 6" x 6"
 device, priced as low as $80 per unit in OEM quantities, connects to a home's
 Cat5e cabling system and can be installed within a wall or ceiling inside a
 junction box.  Speakers, video monitors, TVs and other playback devices are
 then linked to MediaMVP via a suitable wall outlet for a seamless, attractive
 and sophisticated whole-house media solution.
     "Many home builders and home electronics professionals are looking for
 high-margin ways to increase a home's value.  There's no question that digital
 home networks are at the top of the list," said Ken Plotkin, Chief Executive
 Officer of Hauppauge Digital, Inc.  "MediaMVP's simplicity of use,
 reliability, and cutting-edge features are second to none.  Plus its price
 makes it cost effective for every room in the house."
     MediaMVP gives homeowners the ability to enjoy virtually any kind of audio
 or video entertainment stored on a PC, anywhere in the house.  From the
 comfort of a living room sofa, for example, users can play MP3 music
 collections, listen to Internet radio stations, enjoy JPEG slideshows -- with
 or without music -- and even watch PC-based movies that are located on a PC in
 a different part of the house.
     MediaMVP can also be hidden behind access panels in walls and ceilings and
 attached to audio amplifiers or video monitors. Music, videos or digital
 pictures can be sent from a central PC individually to each MediaMVP,
 providing a whole house audio/video system.
     MediaMVP is the ultimate media enabler for home theater systems, plasma
 screens, and whole-house audio systems.  The device supports all common
 multimedia formats including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DivX, MP3, WMA (Windows Media
 Audio), JPEG and GIF, and connects to monitors and TVs through Composite or
 S-Video and stereo audio connections.
     For easy navigation, MediaMVP includes a remote control that allows users
 to pause, fast forward, and rewind through videos as well as pause music and
 picture shows.  Up to 20 rooms can be networked using MediaMVP (one MediaMVP
 is required per each display or audio amplifier).
