ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Hillcrest Labs today announced
that Oppo, a leading Chinese CE manufacturer and smartphone OEM, is using
Hillcrest's patented Freespace^® software to provide advanced motion-based
functionality on their latest smartphones. Specifically, Hillcrest's Freespace
MotionElements software will enable intuitive gesture recognition to simplify
the user experience for smartphone users. Additional details, such as
smartphone models or pricing, were not disclosed.

"Advanced motion control technology is becoming an essential feature for
today's mobile devices," said Chad Lucien, senior vice president of sales and
marketing for Hillcrest Labs. "With Freespace, Oppo smartphone users will be
able to quickly and intuitively control their smartphones with precise gesture
recognition, powered by Hillcrest's patented motion software."

"We're excited to bring to market new and innovative mobile devices that take
advantage of Hillcrest's proven, high-precision motion technology," said
Haijun Yu, Chief Experience Officer, Oppo. "Enhanced user experiences are the
foundation of Oppo's commercial success worldwide. Together with Hillcrest, we
look forward to simplifying consumers' lives with even more efficient and
intuitive mobile capabilities."

Gesture controls are one of many advanced features enabled by Hillcrest's
Freespace technology. These features can take the form of 'symbol gestures'
such as drawing a letter or number in the air, or 'event gestures' such as
shakes and twists of the device. Gestures can be used when the user is unable
to interact with the touchscreen, or as shortcuts where a single gesture can
bypass several screen taps and button presses for commonly used functionality.
Freespace enables the most accurate and consistent gesture recognition in the
industry.

Hillcrest's Freespace technology enables gestures, context awareness and other
advanced functionality while working consistently with a variety of sensor
suppliers and platforms. Freespace enables OEMs to maintain low costs and
minimize battery usage in smartphones, tablets, and other consumer electronic
devices.

Companies that have licensed Hillcrest's Freespace technology for use in their
products include: Atmel, Hisense, Intel, LG Electronics, Roku, SMK
Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., TCL Multimedia, Universal
Electronics (UEI), and more. Hillcrest has a worldwide intellectual property
portfolio that includes over 100 granted and 200 filed patents.
