PARIS, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hauppauge Digital, Inc.(NASDAQ: HAUP),
the leading developer and manufacturer of HD video recorders, is launching its
latest video recorder, HD PVR Rocket, at Paris Games Week in Paris, booth
3H59.

HD PVR Rocket records video game play from PlayStation, Xbox and PC gaming
systems in high definition up to 1080p. The HD PVR Rocket is the ultimate
portable video recorder: it is small enough to fit in your hand and weighs
just 4.6 oz (130 grams). The HD PVR Rocket has a built-in audio mixer and has
a USB port where a gamer can plug a USB thumb drive to record game play. A 16
Gbyte USB thumb drive, when plugged into the HD PVR Rocket, can record 4 hours
of video game play at an HD resolution of 1080p.

The HD PVR Rocket follows the HD PVR 2, which was introduced in September
2012. While being the highest quality video game recorder on the market, the
HD PVR 2 requires a PC or Mac to store video recordings. However, the all new
HD PVR Rocket is standalone and does not require a PC for making recordings.

"Many of our gaming customers asked for a high quality game recorder which was
portable. The HD PVR Rocket can be carried to gaming events to record game
play and game commentary, and does not need a PC or Mac for recording," said
Ken Plotkin, President of Hauppauge.

The HD PVR Rocket also has a built-in audio mixer so that gamers can record
game commentary along with game audio. Game commentary is used by professional
gamers to describe their game moves and strategies, and is one of the most
widely used features in high definition video game recorders. A microphone can
be plugged into the microphone jack mounted on the front of the HD PVR Rocket,
and the built-in audio mixer will record game audio and game commentary. HD
PVR Rocket has a control panel which allows gamers to adjust the volume of the
microphone.

Once game play is recorded, Hauppauge provides a Windows application called
Hauppauge Capture which can be used to upload video game play to YouTube. This
application allows users to select their videos and upload them to their
YouTube channel. Users can create YouTube channels and record and post their
best game moves with game commentary using the HD PVR Rocket. The recordings
made by the HD PVR Rocket are also compatible with a Mac for editing in iMovie
and uploading to YouTube.

Any game system which uses either HDMI video without HDCP or uses component
video can be recorded with HD PVR Rocket, including the Xbox 360 and Xbox One,
PlayStation3, WiiU and PC based game systems. Sony has recently announced that
the PlayStation4, their new game console which will ship in 2013, will also
support game play recording through the HDMI port.

HD PVR Rocket will be available at major retailers throughout Europe starting
November 15. The suggested retail price is 169 euros. It will also be
available at Best Buy and other North American retailers starting November 15
at a suggested retail price of $169.00
