Terayon Demonstrates Innovative Localization on Demand Applications at CableLabs® Winter Conference


Colorado Springs, Colorado - February 27 2006, Terayon Communication Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TERNE), a leading provider of digital video networking applications that enable service providers to localize content on-demand, is demonstrating its latest ‘Localization on Demand’ applications here at the annual winter conference of CableLabs®, the cable television industry’s research and development consortium.

“CableLabs’ Winter Conference offers us an excellent venue to introduce our latest innovations to key cable decision makers,” said Kanaiya Vasani, Terayon Vice President, Marketing. “Terayon’s ability to localize programming, advertising and information through applications like grooming channel line-ups, local digital ad insertion and all-digital graphical overlays means our customers can customize services tailored to the needs of regions and locales.”

Terayon’s CableLabs Winter Conference demonstrations include:

* MPEG-4/AVC ad insertion using the Terayon DM 6400 Network CherryPicker®, which enables service providers to seamlessly insert ads into their MPEG-4/AVC programming using proven cable industry ad insertion standards.
* Targeted Advertising which makes it dramatically easier for cable operators to customize national ads for simultaneous distribution to multiple locations. This is done by sending an ad from a central location and localizing it with graphics or text specific to each region, which are added at the edge of the network just before the ad reaches subscribers. Terayon accomplishes this completely within the compressed MPEG domain, preserving picture quality and reducing production costs.
* On-Demand Content Localization which enables operators to present viewers with Emergency Alert System (EAS), weather, sports and other time-sensitive information by overlaying directly on top of their MPEG-2 programming. This is done in real-time and completely within the compressed digital domain using output from standard character generator (CG) servers that support the industry standard Serial Digital Interface (SDI) video transport format.
