SAMSUNG Standardizes on Pixelworks ImageProcessor Architecture for New Line of Flat Panel TV-Monitors

Tualatin, Ore., June 15, 1999 - Pixelworks (Nasdaq:PXLW) announced today that Samsung, the world`s number one display manufacturer, selected Pixelworks?award-winning ImageProcessor Architecture to power a new line of convergence monitors, including the world`s first flat panel monitor-television combination. The three new additions to Samsung`s stylish SyncMaster series of flat panel monitors utilize highly integrated ImageProcessor ICs to bring both high-quality video and computer images to the desktop.

The advanced features provided by Pixelworks ImageProcessor Architecture enables Samsung to offer new levels of monitor flexibility and image quality. The line of monitors use ImageProcessor ICs coupled with Samsung`s Wiseview?TFT-LCD panels to deliver unsurpassed image quality, video and computer compatibility, ease of use and a rich feature set including picture-in-picture (PIP) and pinpoint zooming that magnifies any part of the screen up to 64 times.
These innovative combination television-monitors have been received enthusiastically by the editorial community including earning a CNET Editors?Choice and being named to Winmag.com`s WinList. These LCD TV-monitors have gained widespread notice with favorable articles in mainstream publications such as New York Times, Fortune, Time, PC Magazine and Wired.
The TFT LCD Samsung models featuring built-in television tuners include the SyncMaster 150MP and SyncMaster 170MP. The 150MP is a 15-inch, XGA resolution (1024x768) monitor and the 170MP is a 17-inch, SXGA resolution (1280x1024) monitor. The revolutionary monitors receive RF and cable television signals and support all of the global broadcast standards, including NTSC and PAL/SECAM video formats. Customers have the ability to watch television or video on the entire screen or in picture-in-picture mode using a scaleable `window?` In addition, the SyncMaster 570P Plus utilizes the ImageProcessor Architecture to provide an affordable, XGA-resolution flat panel display capable of handling computer and NTSC Composite and S-Video inputs.
