DSP Group And Comigo Introduce Home Automation Service Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group ® (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, and Comigo, creator of a feature-rich smart TV platform, today announced the launch of a jointly-developed home automation (HA) solution based on DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) technology. Integrated with Comigo's hybrid set-top box, the product will be introduced at the SmartHomes 2012 conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on October 9-11, 2012.

Home automation is a natural extension of home entertainment, and the integration of the two will enable consumers to control and monitor the entire home from the comfort of the living room. Comprising DSP Group's advanced DECT ULE chipset solutions and software stack and Comigo's smart set-top box, the DSP-Comigo solution provides a simple and intuitive means of controlling and monitoring the home environment. The solution leverages the unique advantages of DECT ULE - mature, robust and interference-free technology that operates over a dedicated frequency band, not influenced by other ISM band technologies. DECT ULE features extended coverage - allowing nodes and devices located several floors away from the set-top box to communicate through walls and ceilings without intermediate "repeaters." Additionally it offers long battery life, ease of installation and configuration, and the industry's lowest cost of ownership.

"We see a growing demand from consumers for security, monitoring and control services that are simple to install and enable easy management of daily tasks, without infringing on leisure activities," said Sigalit Klimovsky, Vice President of Business Development at Comigo. "Given its merits compared to other technologies we evaluated, we see DECT ULE as the right technology to provide such an experience, and we've found DSP Group to be an outstanding and cooperative partner in delivering such a solution."

"We are proud to partner with Comigo in offering the world's first DECT ULE-enabled set-top box, extending and enriching the user experience far beyond multimedia and Internet browsing," said Jan Abelev, Corporate Vice President of Product Management at DSP Group. "Comigo is an innovator who looked beyond a "me-too" set-top box, exceeding user expectations and exploring new territory with service providers. Comigo grasped the key advantages of DECT ULE over other available technologies, and applied them to deliver an inspiring value proposition for service providers and end-users."
