Sigma Designs to Showcase Solutions for Home Entertainment Networking, Home Control, and Media Processing at CEATEC 2010

TOKYO & MILPITAS, Calif.–Sigma Designs (Nasdaq:SIGM), a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions used to deliver entertainment and control throughout the home, today announced it will demonstrate its industry-leading solutions in media processing, home entertainment networking, 3D display, and home control at CEATEC 2010. Also at the show, Sigma will host the first ever Z-Wave Seminar, an event targeted to give Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) an overview of technology solutions for modern home control and energy management. Industry partners Sumitomo Electric, NTT Docomo, and Ingersoll-Rand will join Sigma at the seminar to present Z-Wave powered solutions as part of the home control ecosystem.

Sigma’s Z-Wave solutions put home control in the palm of consumers’ hands. Attendees will have the opportunity to test-drive real-world applications — using Z-Wave to monitor and manage energy use, home entertainment systems, lighting, and appliance control, HVAC systems, security, and access control — all from a smart phone.

Sigma will host all of its CEATEC activities in the Manhattan Hotel, booths 706, 707, and 708.
