September 15, 2011

IZEGEM, Belgium, September 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

Redpine’s ultra low power 802.11n chipset and customized MAC provide an
advanced wireless solution for Confidea(R)

Televic Conference, creator of high end conferencing solutions, today
announced that it will adopt Wi-Fi(R) technology from Redpine Signals, Inc.,
a leading developer of ultra low power and high-performance multi-standard
wireless chipsets and systems, to develop the future generation of its
Confidea(R) Wireless conference system. The product line will take advantage
of industry proven, ultra-low power 802.11 Wi-Fi(R) along with Redpine’s
proprietary enhancements designed to deliver low latency audio streams with
guaranteed quality of service.

The unique multi-band Confidea(R) wireless conference system includes a
wireless access point (WCAP) and a variety of delegate and chairman units
that provide voice connectivity in 40 language channels with eight
microphones simultaneously open for discussion along with general voting
capabilities, which is a major upgrade over competing systems using digital
infrared. The unique system is already used by parliaments and international
European institutions.

The requirements for the audio conferencing market include reliability
and confidentiality in technology along with the most robust and secure
wireless connection. “Confidea(R) Wireless is one of our flagship products
and given its success we want to raise the bar with respect to performance
and range of conferencing solutions by using Redpine’s ultra low-power Wi-Fi
chipsets,” said Bart Deschodt, General Manager of Televic Conference. “The
use of 802.11n data rates and packet formats, dual-band 2.4 and 5 GHz
operation, advanced encryption, long battery life, and the ability to
customize the solution to our needs were all important to us.”

Redpine’s dual-band Lite-Fi(R) modules use a proprietary processor that
enables the modification of the MAC protocol to meet the stringent
requirements of the conference audio system while minimizing load on the
host system. Ultra low power wireless connections ensure battery operation
of the units for long durations – enabling fully wireless, clean and easy

“Redpine has innovated significantly in the optimization of Wi-Fi in a
number of emerging wireless scenarios,” said Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine
Signals. “We have successfully adapted standards-compliant Wi-Fi for high
density stadium environments, long range rural access, and multi-channel
high QoS voice applications. We are excited about our partnership with
Televic and participating in the advanced versions of its highly successful
Confidea product line,” he added.
