Zoran Vaddis Processor IC Powers GoVideo Networked DVD Player to Award

12/1/2003 - Zoran Corporation (Nasdaq: ZRAN) announced that its advanced Vaddis DVD multimedia processor IC powers GoVideo's D2730 Networked DVD player, awarded "Best of What's New" from Popular Science.

After reviews of thousands of new products and innovations from across the U.S., Popular Science selected products that represent a significant step forward in home entertainment.

The slim-lined GoVideo Networked DVD player allows consumers to stream movies, music, and pictures from a computer through a wired or wireless network to the television or home theater system. Its sophisticated DVD player functions deliver high quality audio and video for enhanced home entertainment experiences.

"We are proud that GoVideo has once again been recognized for our industry-leading achievements," said Ed Brachocki, president and chief operating officer of GoVideo. "Our Networked DVD Player, developed in partnership with Zoran and Digital 5, promises to be popular with consumers since it delivers the high quality audio and video experiences of an advanced DVD player, combined with the convenience of streaming entertainment wired or wirelessly from a home network."

"Zoran is pleased that our technology contributed to producing another award for GoVideo. Recognition from Popular Science is a well-deserved accomplishment for the D2730 player, which was the first networked DVD player to market," said Dr. Jinxiang (Gene) Liu, vice president and general manager of the DVD division at Zoran Corporation.

Zoran and GoVideo first demonstrated the wireless networked DVD player technology at CES 2003 last January in Las Vegas. The Vaddis enables Dolby Digital and DTS outputs for high-quality surround sound applications and provides 10-bit video digital to analog conversion plus 27 megahertz advanced digital filtering for the best quality progressive scan video output.

The GoVideo Networked DVD Player is available at many retail stores and online consumer outlets in the USA.
