TranSwitch’s HDplay Transceiver Selected by Kramer Electronics for Several Video Products

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.
