SHELTON, Conn. -- February 4, 2013

TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor
solutions in the rapidly growing consumer electronics and telecommunications
markets, today announced that the Company’s HDplay™ TXC-44146 transceiver has
been designed into Acto’s new high definition projector models DX9100 and
DW9100, which are optimized for digital cinemas, conferences, meeting rooms
and public displays. Acto, a leading manufacturer of projectors in China,
selected the HDplay transceiver to enable HDMI® and DisplayPort™ connectivity
while utilizing TranSwitch’s AnyCable™ technology to maintain high definition
video performance over long cable runs.

According to a recent report by IHS, the worldwide digital signage and
professional display market is expected to increase from 17.3 million units in
2012 to 25.8 million units in 2016. The top three display technologies
generating the largest revenue for signage and professional displays will be
LCD, front projection, and LED respectively. These large format video devices
often feature multiple interface standards to support different multimedia
sources and are located remotely, requiring long runs of cable.

“In 2012, Acto achieved significant revenue growth and increased unit share of
the global projector market driven by sales into key markets such as
commercial, residential, and education, including government purchase projects
in the People’s Republic of China,” said Zhang Zhengde, director of research &
development at Acto. “TranSwitch’s HDplay solution supports our stringent
video performance requirements while enabling connectivity for multiple
interface standards and long video cable support in one solution. This level
of performance, ease of use, and reliability aligns with the features and
performance expected by our customers as part of the Acto brand offering to
the marketplace.”

“We are very pleased to add Acto to our customer base and we are actively
working with them to increase our adoption in new projects and new product
categories at Acto with our HDplay family,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of
worldwide sales and marketing at TranSwitch. “Acto’s selection of the
TXC-44146 further demonstrates the many advantages of our HDplay solutions, as
well as the underlying benefits of our proprietary HDP™ and AnyCable
technologies. Building on this design win, we look forward to further
collaboration with Acto as they continue to grow their brand and product
offering.”

TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers are the industry’s only solutions that
combine both HDMI and DisplayPort on a single integrated circuit, enabling
manufacturers to reduce space requirements, design complexity, and overall
cost, while speeding time-to-market. The Company’s newest HDplay products
feature HDMI, DisplayPort, and MHL™ connectivity interfaces. HDplay
transceivers also incorporate TranSwitch’s patented AnyCable technology, which
enables the use of long, less expensive HDMI cables with less shielding. This
level of integration and performance provides the end-user with support for
high performance HD standards, as well as greater flexibility when selecting
multimedia devices, peripherals, and cables.
