PLAYNETWORK SELECTS ANTEX AS PART OF NEW “XM FOR BUSINESS” SERVICE

Torrance, CA – January 2008… Antex Electronics, the premiere manufacturer of audio and video solutions for retail and commercial applications, is pleased to announce that PlayNetwork, a leading provider of integrated media experiences for business, has chosen Antex to provide their XM-100 satellite receiver as part of a larger strategic relationship recently announced with XM Satellite Radio, the nation‘s foremost satellite radio company. Under terms of the PlayNetwork – XM Satellite Radio agreement, the new “XM for Business” service, available to business customers across the country, will enable businesses to experience XM and benefit from PlayNetwork‘s industry expertise and specialized direct-sales workforce.

As part of their on-going relationship, PlayNetwork‘s XM for Business unit has chosen Antex to provide the XM-100 satellite receiver–one of the company‘s premier commercial satellite radio receivers–to their customers. PlayNetwork has utilized Antex‘s advanced media playback device, the C400 Combo, exclusively for their custom business music and messaging services for the past several years. The inclusion of the XM-100 to PlayNetwork‘s on-premise hardware offerings further enhances their full-service capability.

Antex Electronics‘ XM-100 satellite receiver is the first commercial XM satellite radio tuner available with advanced features and functionality designed specifically to meet the professional needs of retailers, hotel and conference center managers, as well as other businesses looking for professionally programmed commercial-free entertainment. This world-class receiver delivers all the advantages of XM Satellite Radio’s more than 170 digital channels of music, news, sports, and entertainment in a receiver specifically fashioned with unique features such as programmable dayparting, stereo and mono audio outputs, and front panel lockout, for the business customer.

Tim Van Grove, Antex Electronics Director of Sales, commented on PlayNetwork‘s selection of the XM-100 satellite receiver for the new joint venture with XM Satellite Radio. “PlayNetwork and Antex have enjoyed a mutually beneficial business relationship for quite some time now, and the inclusion of our XM-100 receiver represents a logical step as the company moves forward with the new XM for Business program. We‘re confident our receiver will provide the feature set business customers expect, along with bullet-proof, reliable performance that enables one to enjoy XM Satellite Radio‘s vast array of programming choices to the fullest extent. All of us at Antex are excited about the new PlayNetwork – XM Satellite Radio relationship and the opportunities it presents for our company.”

Dave Purdy, Senior Vice President, XM for Business, PlayNetwork, echoed Van Grove‘s enthusiasm. “PlayNetwork has placed its trust in Antex Electronics for feature-rich, dependable performance from its various commercial audio products for several years, and the new XM for Business program is yet another perfect opportunity for our two firms to work together and provide the customer with a first-rate background music experience. The XM for Business service is a perfect complement to the customized music, video, promotional and audio/video design and integration services we have provided to commercial clients in more than 30 countries over the past 10 years, and by having Antex Electronics on-board with this new program, we have the infrastructure to ensure the highest level of quality service.”
