AMSTERDAM -- January 29, 2013

Epson today released its new commercial projectors that incorporate the
HDBaseT technology to enable professional installers to reduce installation
time and costs without sacrificing video quality. Epson becomes the latest
leading manufacturer to join the HDBaseT Alliance, a consortium of companies
that works to promote and standardize HDBaseT technology. Empowered by the
Valens Semiconductor HDBaseT chipset, HDBaseT enables whole-home and
commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content over a single
CAT5e/6 cable.

“One feature that makes HDBaseT so unique is that it enables long-reach wired
connectivity up to 100 meters for uncompressed full HD multimedia content,
making it ideal for projectors,” said Yasunori Ogawa, VI Planning & Design
Department General Manager, Epson. “Joining the HDBaseT Alliance enables us to
provide our customers with the HDBaseT standard technology that will enable
them to realize significant time and labor cost savings in part by relieving
them of concerns about loss of video fidelity due to cable length.”

“Adding Epson, a worldwide leader in the projector market, to the HDBaseT
Alliance will make the HDBaseT technology more available to meet the growing
demand among both professionals and consumers,” said Micha Risling, marketing
chair of the HDBaseT Alliance. “The HDBaseT Alliance has seen tremendous
growth in membership, and products enabled by HDBaseT are already on the
market. We expect to see additional devices coming to market throughout 2013
as the adoption rate continues to increase.”
