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.
