SHELTON, Conn. -- March 19, 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
selected by Tecnoroll for several video encoder solutions. Tecnoroll is a
leading designer of video compression engines used in video encoders and
targeted for a variety of applications, including broadcasting, surveillance,
hospitality, and multi-room residential. These video encoder solutions include
complete modules embedded in systems sold by major OEMs.

“Tecnoroll continues to set the standard for video encoder products for a
variety of markets and applications,” said Lorenzo Bolla, president at
Tecnoroll. TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers provide a level of functionality
and connectivity options that are very difficult to achieve through
alternative solutions or with a discrete design without sacrificing
performance, cost, or size. This level of performance and versatility
complements the overall feature set of our video encoder and compression
engines helping us differentiate our products and address growing trends
across a variety of markets.”

Video encoder modules allow HD video to be compressed into the standard H.264
digital format and transmitted via twisted pair or optical cable. Using this
H.264 compression engine, multiple HD video streams can be reliably
transmitted, using a single channel, over long distances. These video encoder
modules are now increasingly supporting both HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity
to allow users to connect a wide array of source devices. According to a
report by TechNavio, the HDMI®-enabled device shipments are forecasted to
increase at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.7% from 2012 to 2016,
while DisplayPort™-enabled device shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of
31.6% during the same time period.

“We are very pleased to have been selected by Tecnoroll for several video
encoder modules,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of worldwide sales and
marketing at TranSwitch. “TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers provide Tecnoroll
with a compact single-chip solution that reduces design complexity to speed
time-to-market while enabling source device flexibility with HDMI and
DisplayPort connectivity. Working with Tecnoroll provides an additional
channel for adoption of our HDplay solutions into a variety of end markets and
OEMs through the incorporation of our products as the video connectivity
front-end for their video encoder modules.”

TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers use the Company’s patented HDP™ technology to
provide the industry’s only solution that offers both HDMI and DisplayPort
functionality on a single integrated circuit. With HDplay powering a HDTV,
projector, video switch, or video encoder, 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.
