D-LINK LAUNCHES NEW WIRELESS MEDIA PLAYER ACROSS EUROPE

London, 6 October 2004 - D-Link, the true leading global manufacturer of broadband, wireless, and networking hardware for Home and Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) environments today announced the D-Link Wireless Media Player that distributes digital music, video and photos stored on PCs to play and view on a television and/or stereo system.

The Wireless Media Player (DSM-320) enhances the usability of both a home network and a home entertainment centre by creating a seamless connection between computers and consumer electronics. The DSM-320 is a product for the digital home; a product segment that D-Link believes is set to grow rapidly in the next few years. D-Link's media player supports all the most widely used standards, such as MP3, JPEG, MPEG, Xvid and QuickTime, for streaming video and audio on home networks.

"The new wireless media player gives consumers access to more content than ever before in the area where they congregate the most, the living room," said Kevin Wen, European President of D-Link. "Now a family can view a catalogued library of digital photos on their TV or listen to pre-set configured MP3s in surround sound stereo, all of which represent the next step in the evolution and convergence of the CE and PC for the digital home. The look and functionality of the media player is coherent with that of other entertainment devices such as DVD players and therefore removes technology barriers for the customer,” concludes Wen.

The Wireless Media Player uses IEEE 802.11g standard to link the home PC to the TV and Hi-Fi system. The media player can also be connected to the PC through a regular Ethernet network cable. DSM-320 connects to the TV via a SCART (with video, A/V and RGB), RCA A/V or S-video cable. It also comes with digital audio outputs for Coax or optical fibre. DSM-320 is a versatile device that can be used for everything from displaying digital photos and videos on a TV to playback of MP3 files on a stereo. The media player comes with a remote control and supports the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) standard, making it easy to install. The wireless bandwidth is 54Mbps in accordance with IEEE 802.11g.

The recommended UK retail price for the DSM-320 is £158 (excl. VAT).
