SHELTON, Conn. -- February 11, 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 several Kramer Electronics video products, including video
switches and distribution amplifiers. Production of Kramer Electronics’ first
new video product featuring HDplay is expected to commence by the end of the
first quarter 2013.

Kramer Electronics is a global leader in the design and manufacture of
high-performance video solutions for corporate, education, transportation,
hospitality, entertainment, retail, and institutional markets. Video switches
enable users to easily connect multiple source devices, and distribution
amplifiers allow users to transmit multimedia content over long distances.
TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers provide Kramer Electronics with a single-IC
solution that minimizes design complexity and speeds time-to-market for new
switch and amplifier products that feature both HDMI® and DisplayPort™
connectivity.

HDMI and DisplayPort devices continue to gain prevalence in the market,
driving manufacturers of connectivity devices, such as video switches and
amplifiers, to adopt both standards. According to a report by InStat, the
combined total number of devices shipped with HDMI, DisplayPort, or DVI
connectivity is forecasted to surpass 2 billion in 2015.

“Kramer Electronics has a tradition of delivering video switches and
amplifiers that provide exceptional performance and reliability,” said Ehud
Ardel, vice president of research and development at Kramer Electronics.
“Working closely with TranSwitch, we are introducing new products that enable
our customers to take advantage of robust twisted pair technology for
long-distance video connections, while easily being able to connect HDMI and
DisplayPort devices.”

“TranSwitch has made tremendous strides with our HDplay product family by
combining HDMI and DisplayPort capabilities in a single-IC solution, reducing
space requirements, overall design cost, and time-to-market,” said Tim Blanke,
vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at TranSwitch. “Kramer
Electronics’ new switch and amplifier products merge this connectivity
advantage with its proven design and manufacturing prowess to provide
customers with reliable, high-definition video solutions. We are extremely
pleased to be a part of the Kramer Electronics success story and look forward
to continued close collaboration in the design of future platforms that tap
into device connectivity trends.”

TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers are the industry’s only solution that offers
both HDMI and DisplayPort functionality on a single integrated circuit. With
HDplay powering a video switch or distribution amplifier, end-users are able
to conveniently connect a wide range of multimedia devices. HDplay also
utilizes TranSwitch’s patented AnyCable™ technology, enabling the user to
confidently select long and inexpensive cables, while maintaining HDMI 1.4
performance.
