SHELTON, Conn. -- February 7, 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™ transceiver has been
designed into Edge I&D’s new Interactive LED-LCD Display Whiteboards. The
interactive whiteboard models, using TXC-44144 HDplay transceivers, will be
available in displays ranging in size up to 84 inches and can support 4Kx2K
video resolution. Edge I&D is a Korea-based ODM for interactive education
tools and commercial multimedia applications, including interactive
whiteboards which display video using a large screen, enabling a user to
annotate and manipulate presentations in real time using touch screen

According to a new report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., global sales of
interactive whiteboards are expected to reach US $1.85 Billion by 2018. The
source devices for interactive whiteboards are expected to increasingly
feature both HDMI® and DisplayPort™ connectivity. TranSwitch’s HDplay
transceivers are optimized to support these trends by combining both HDMI and
DisplayPort standards, as well as utilizing the Company's patented AnyCable™
technology to maintain high definition video performance over long cable runs.

“Our new interactive display whiteboards are powerful tools with broad
applications for education, business meetings, training, and other
collaborative environments,” said Maeng Sungyeol, chief technical officer at
Edge I&D. “Working with TranSwitch, we are able to deliver flexible solutions
that enable users to easily and reliably connect a variety of source devices
while providing high definition video quality, robust interactive tools, and a
simple user interface.”

“Our integrated HDplay solution provided the optimal high-speed video
interconnect for Edge I&D’s interactive display requirements, while supporting
HDMI and DisplayPort to provide unparalleled video connectivity flexibility in
a single IC,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing
at TranSwitch. “We see increasing adoption of our HDplay product family across
a variety of applications driven by performance requirements and the growing
emergence of source devices supporting new video connectivity standards. We
are excited to be working closely with Edge I&D to enable these
next-generation interactive displays which are targeted for production ramp by
the end of March 2013.”

TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers are the industry’s only solutions that
combine both HDMI and DisplayPort on a single integrated circuit. This level
of integration enables manufacturers to reduce space requirements, design
complexity, and overall cost, while speeding time-to-market. HDplay
transceivers also incorporate TranSwitch’s patented AnyCable technology, which
enables the use of long, less expensive HDMI cables with less shielding.
Displays and devices that use HDplay provide the end-user with greater
flexibility when selecting multimedia devices, peripherals, and cables.
