Jan 22, 2008, 00:00 ET from Minicom Advanced Systems Ltd

    JERUSALEM, Israel, January 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Minicom Advanced Systems
 (http://www.minicom.com) is set to unveil its new, longest range DS Vision
 3000 (http://www.minicom.com/av_ds3000.htm) digital signage distribution
 system at this year's Screen Expo, Europe's premiere digital signage event,
 which takes place February 5th and 6th 2008, at the National Hall, Olympia,
 London. Minicom's booth, E25, is located at the center of the ground floor.
 
     DS Vision 3000 is a long range CAT5 based distribution system
 delivering HD video and stereo-audio content to multiple screens up to
 600m/2000ft away. Its unique, fully bidirectional RS-232 serial management
 capability allows administrators to remotely query and turn on/off remote
 displays and provides centralized management control.
 
     Minicom is also unveiling its new cutting-edge Dual Cascade Receiver
 Unit (DCL) for the DS Vision that significantly expands the system's
 potential by supporting not only star configurations, but also daisy
 chains. With the DCL you can cascade up to ten units in a row enabling
 easier positioning of screens and reduced cable clutter. In addition, the
 DCL has double the power of a regular video receiver allowing you to put
 two back-to-back screens on a single unit while still controlling each
 screen separately.
 
     Eran Kessel, Vice President for Marketing at Minicom says: "With its
 real-time HD video distribution, long distance range and the industry's
 only GUI-based screen management program, the DS Vision 3000 offers the
 most complete player-to-screen solution for the "Last Mile" of any digital
 signage network."
 
     The DS Vision 3000 system will be on display at Screen Expo's Digital
 Signage Showcase (http://www.screenevents.co.uk/screenexpo2008/DSS.htm),
 which shows the complete end-to-end digital signage installation with the
 key market leaders in the supply chain. Minicom, manufacturer of real-time
 player-to-screen distribution and extension systems will be displaying its
 solutions alongside 3M, Pixel Inspiration, RGB Communications and NEC.
 
     The new DS Vision 3000 (http://www.minicom.com/av_ds3000.htm) is
 shipping Q2 2008.
