LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 3, 2006--

           First Planned Retail Product Will Target DIRECTV
            Customers for Its Upcoming DIRECTV 2Go Service

HUMAX USA, the "Easy-Digital" company, has developed a new hard
drive based hand-held portable media player (PMP) platform ideal for
use by content and pay TV providers with plans to deliver content
electronically to customers via portable video devices. The first
content provider to be supported by this HUMAX PMP platform is DIRECTV
- for its upcoming DIRECTV 2Go service.

The HUMAX PMP platform has a 4-inch widescreen LCD display screen
with navigation controlled via an easy-to-use 5-button design.
Additional consumer conveniences include a high capacity hard drive
(capacity to be partner specified) and a long-lasting,
user-replaceable battery that provides up to 4 hours of video and 10
hours of music.

Based on an AMD Alchemy(TM) Au1200(TM) processor, the device
natively supports many video formats including MPEG1/2/4, DivX, WMV9
with WMDRM10 support - all at full D1 resolution (720x480). Moreover,
the integration of a DDR1/DDR2 memory interface, USB2.0 High Speed
Host & Device with On-the-Go, and on-chip AES cryptographic support,
provide enabling technology for strenuous media applications and
content protection schemes.
