Delphi Demonstrates Host of New Mobile Multimedia Features at The 2007 International CES


January 04, 2007 - LAS VEGAS — Delphi Corporation will show a variety of new mobile multimedia technologies in five different vehicles here at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show, Jan. 8-11 (North Las Vegas Convention Center, Exhibit 5206).

Delphi’s original equipment technologies offer cost savings to vehicle manufacturers — and help automakers offer motorists more convenient and efficient in-vehicle communications and entertainment options.

Highlights include:

Integrated Class-D Amplifier

Delphi integrates a premium remote amplifier into the radio head which helps OEMs reduce packaging complexity, cost, and mass while providing the sound quality to satisfy the most serious of listeners. Delphi’s integrated amplifier delivers powerful sound up to 400 watts from 8 channels. Digital amplifier technology reduces the power dissipation by more than 50 percent while increasing the audio power by 400 percent.

Advanced Audio Systems Receivers

Featuring advanced up-integration, Delphi’s advanced receivers help vehicle manufacturers reduce cost, weight and harnessing requirements by eliminating separate amplifiers. The receivers provide 1 Gigabyte of storage which equals 30 hours of music or the equivalent to 24 CDs. The system copies, compresses and stores CD music in non-volatile flash memory, providing a Virtual CD changer of music. This provides skip-free playback from memory. It is capable of ripping CDs and allows users to delete tracks and move on to another selection. The receiver also includes a Bluetooth interface for hands-free telephone plus (Bluetooth) A2DP streaming audio. In addition, the receiver has an iPod interface.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Delphi’s Bluetooth interface offers hands-free phone operation and streaming audio integrated into the radio. Streaming audio uses A2DP standard allowing drivers to listen to music stored on their cell phone or other Bluetooth enabled device. The radio display is used as the human interface. It displays the caller ID phone number and features a one-button answer or redial. The Delphi audio system can eliminate a remote phone module in the vehicle.

iPod Interfaces

To provide full control of the iPod from the radio using the radio controls, users can connect an iPod directly to the Delphi receiver to provide full control of the iPod from the radio using the radio controls. The larger radio display shows the song title, artist, album and elapsed time are conveniently displayed on the radio display. This allows the user to conceal the iPod, reducing the chance of damage or theft. Delphi’s receivers are compatible with mini, regular, nano, photo and video iPods.

HD Radio Head Units

Delphi is also demonstrating HD radio taking AM and FM into the digital realm to provide superior sound quality and new data services. The receiver provides consumers with more entertainment options without a subscription through multi-casting or two channels broadcasting from the same station. More than 2,800 stations expect to broadcast in HD by 2008. HD radio can be added to an existing digital tuner using Delphi’s unique algorithms which helps to reduce development times and provides new data services such as song and artist displays plus weather and traffic alerts. The Delphi radio provides storage and playback allowing for time-shifting of audio content.

Advanced Rear-Seat Entertainment

Delphi rear-seat entertainment system with DVD integrated into the radio head unit showcases the company’s system integration expertise. The system features two 8-inch head rest displays with on-screen independent graphics and controls. The system at CES uses a DVD and iPod for video sources with a total of six video sources that can be used. The on-screen user interface eliminates the need to package a control panel.

The Delphi Mobile TV World Tuner provides the highest quality performance available for worldwide TV reception in vehicles. Delphi’s Mobile TV World Tuner receives both analog and digital TV signals and automatically switches from analog to digital and back to receive the signal broadcast in the area. It receives and decodes signals for DVB-T and ISDP-T digital signals and PAL, SECAM and NTSC analog signals. Delphi merged its unique expertise reception systems capabilities and mobile TV tuner expertise to develop a platform that integrates a variety of TV standards for all of the various global markets.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENT This press release, as well as other statements made by Delphi may contain forward-looking statements within the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that reflect, when made, the company’s current views with respect to current events and financial performance. Such forward-looking statements are and will be, as the case may be, subject to many risks, uncertainties and factors relating to the company’s operations and business environment which may cause the actual results of the company to be materially different from any future results, express or implied, by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: the ability of the company to continue as a going concern; the ability of the company to operate pursuant to the terms of the debtor-in-possession (“DIP”) financing facility; the company’s ability to obtain court approval with respect to motions in the chapter 11 proceeding prosecuted by it from time to time; the ability of the company to develop, prosecute, confirm and consummate one or more plans of reorganization with respect to the Chapter 11 cases; risks associated with third parties seeking and obtaining court approval to terminate or shorten the exclusivity period for the company to propose and confirm one or more plans of reorganization, for the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee or to convert the cases to chapter 7 cases; the ability of the company to obtain and maintain normal terms with vendors and service providers; the company’s ability to maintain contracts that are critical to its operations; the potential adverse impact of the Chapter 11 cases on the company’s liquidity or results of operations; the ability of the company to execute its business plans, including the transformation plan described in the Company’s March 31, 2006 press release, and to do so in a timely fashion; the ability of the company to attract, motivate and/or retain key executives and associates; the ability of the company to avoid or continue to operate during a strike, or partial work stoppage or slow down by any of its unionized employees; and the ability of the company to attract and retain customers. Other risk factors are listed from time to time in the company’s United States Securities and Exchange Commission reports, including, but not limited to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005. Delphi disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events and/or otherwise.Similarly, these and other factors, including the terms of any reorganization plan ultimately confirmed, can affect the value of the company’s various pre-petition liabilities, common stock and/or other equity securities. Additionally, no assurance can be given as to what values, if any, will be ascribed in the bankruptcy proceedings to each of these constituencies. A plan of reorganization could result in holders of Delphi’s common stock receiving no distribution on account of their interest and cancellation of their interests. Under certain conditions specified in the Bankruptcy Code, a plan of reorganization may be confirmed notwithstanding its rejection by an impaired class of creditors or equity holders and notwithstanding the fact that equity holders do not receive or retain property on account of their equity interests under the plan. In light of the foregoing and as stated in its October 8, 2005, press release announcing the filing of its Chapter 11 reorganization cases, the company considers the value of the common stock to be highly speculative and cautions equity holders that the stock may ultimately be determined to have no value. Accordingly, the company urges that appropriate caution be exercised with respect to existing and future investments in Delphi’s common stock or other equity interests or any claims relating to pre-petition liabilities.
