CAMPBELL, Calif. -- FOCUS Enhancements, Inc. (NASDAQ CM: FCSE), today introduced the company’s Talaria™ Ultra Wideband (UWB) Evaluation System for computer, mobile communications and consumer electronics companies designing next generation wireless audio/video products. The company is currently taking orders for evaluation kits, which are expected to be available around the end of 2005, and include all elements needed to test UWB radio performance in typical home and office user environments.

The company’s UWB Evaluation System enables manufacturers to validate the performance of FOCUS Enhancements’ UWB radio modules in real-world environments. Featuring its exclusive Talaria UWB technology, FOCUS Enhancements’ radios are compatible with the WiMedia standard while exceeding the standard’s overall performance. Talaria is expected to provide transmission rates up to 880 Mbps at ranges up to 8 meters and 37 Mbps at a range of 40 meters. Both specifications exceed existing published competitive capabilities.

“For UWB to become a viable technology in commercial markets, it must prove that it can work in a variety of commonly encountered environments,” said Brett Moyer, FOCUS Enhancements’ president and chief executive officer. “Our UWB Evaluation System will enable manufacturers to test and confirm that Talaria works in a wide range of physical environments and will demonstrate to developers and product managers real world delivery capabilities that outperform anything currently on the market or in development labs we have visited.”

“Included within every Evaluation System is a Talaria mini-PCI UWB radio”, said Tom Hamilton, executive vice president and general manager of FOCUS Enhancements’ semiconductor group. “This radio module is actually a reference design that customers can start to use immediately to pursue UWB implementation in products and designs they already have in the works. Our team will not only assist customers with the evaluation of our UWB wireless solution, but can help with the implementation of UWB technology to assure rapid time-to-market.”
