Delphi’s TV Reception System Chosen in Europe


Delphi’s Hybrid System Features both Analog and Digital Reception

January 09, 2007 - LAS VEGAS — Delphi’s Fuba™ TV reception has been selected by BMW for future car-models, Delphi officials announced here today at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show.

As more luxury cars include TV reception systems as options in their vehicles, Delphi is at the forefront with its unique technology. Delphi is exhibiting at the CES Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, (North Hall, Exhibit 5206) Jan. 8-11.

The Delphi Fuba reception systems provide the near-DVD color picture quality with stereo sound that is expected by discriminating car owners. The reception systems uses multiple in-glass or composite body structure antennas, integrated amplifiers and ScanDiv™ scanning diversity technology to provide the highest quality color TV reception in vehicles.

Delphi’s patented ScanDiv technology automatically selects the best audio and video signal from four antennas to provide passengers in-home like TV quality. The reception system is easily adapted to local markets and compatible with available rear-seat entertainment systems.

Many European urban regions are still transitioning from analog TV to digital TV. As analog TV stations are switching to digital transmission, Delphi’s hybrid Digital/Analog Mobile Reception Systems are capable of receiving both signals seamlessly.

Infrared remote control makes on-screen programming easy. With 12 fixed storage locations and 10 auto store locations, the system automatically stores the strongest stations in the area where the vehicle is located. In addition, the system is equipped with brightness, contrast and saturation control to help provide the clearest picture possible, day or night, and under varied reception conditions. It also comes with a DVB-T set top box for mobile analog TV systems.

“We are excited about the opportunity to help BMW offer its customers the excellent color TV reception available,” said Dr. Andreas Hunscher, director of Delphi Fuba located in the German Federal State Niedersachsen.

“BMW motor vehicles are known globally for adopting the latest features, and Delphi’s reception systems align well with BMW’s commitment to innovation,” he said.

Delphi Fuba’s multi-standard receiver is compatible with NTSC, PAL and SECAM and has interface outputs for audio and two monitors. It also has two interface inputs for video signals that will allow input from an optional source such as SVHF or RGB.

Digital TV is being transmitted alongside analog in the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Finland and parts of Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway.

Delphi’s Fuba TV reception systems are produced at its facility in Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany.

Delphi’s Fuba Reception Systems offer exceptional reception for vehicle communication systems — including AM/FM, cellular, GPS, television, satellite and digital services — while enhancing vehicle styling with aesthetically pleasing designs.

This press release, as well as other statements made by Delphi, may contain forward-looking statements 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 facility; the company’s ability to obtain court approval with respect to motions in the chapter 11 cases 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; the company’s ability to satisfy the terms and conditions of the Equity Purchase and Commitment Agreement with its Plan Investors; the company’s ability to satisfy the terms and conditions of the Plan Framework Support Agreement with GM and its Plan Investors (including the company’s ability to achieve consensual agreements with GM and its U.S. labor unions on a timely basis that are acceptable to the Plan Investors in their sole discretion); 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 fund and execute its business plan (including the transformation plan described in Item 1. Business “Potential Divestitures, Consolidations and Wind-Downs” of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005 filed with the SEC) and to do so in a timely manner; 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 interests 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.
