CAMBRIDGE, England & SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- December 12, 2012

CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) today announced that HP has entered into a
new agreement with CSR to use CSR’s IPS™ Universal Print Interpreter software
across HP’s printer, multi-function printer (MFP), and all-in-one (AIO)
product lines. This licence builds upon HP’s longstanding adoption of CSR’s
IPS print language technology. CSR’s IPS Universal Print Interpreter software
is the industry’s only shipping solution supporting all standard print
languages – PostScript, PDF, PCL 5, PCL 6 and XPS.

The IPS Universal Print Interpreter solution, deployed in select HP LaserJet
and Officejet printers, enables printers to reliably handle print jobs sent
from Apple AirPrint™, Google Cloud Print™ and a wide variety of traditional
sources such as desktop and graphics arts applications, ERP systems and
engineering applications.

“Supporting high-quality printing via Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print is
becoming increasingly important as the Apple® and Google® platforms become
more widely used in both the home and enterprise,” said Anthony Murray, SVP
Business Group, CSR. “We are gratified that HP – the standard-setter in the
printer market – has chosen CSR for multiple print languages. Our unrelenting
focus on compatibility across all print languages ensures that HP’s printers
will reliably produce the expected output when printing from a wide variety of
sources, including both traditional sources such as notebooks and servers and
new sources such as smartphones, tablets and the cloud.”

The CSR IPS family of interpreters supports all standard page description
languages (PDLs) with a universal interpreter architecture. IPS interpreters
have emerged as the industry’s most widely-adopted PDL interpreters with the
most comprehensive compatibility with HP printers, and enable OEMs to deliver
colour and monochrome printers and multi-function devices capable of printing
complex, graphics-rich documents without losing time, quality or data.
