Creative Technology Ltd. (Nasdaq: CREAF – News),
a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products for PC users, today
announced Sound Blaster® Wireless Music, an easy to use wireless music system
consisting of a RF remote control with built-in LCD screen and a digital
receiver designed to play entire MP3 and WMA music collections stored on the PC
anywhere in the home. The innovative remote control allows users to access and
select their music on the built-in LCD without having to use a TV for music
navigation. The digital receiver works seamlessly with existing 802.11b or
802.11g wireless networks and connects to any powered speaker or home stereo
system. The Sound Blaster Wireless Music is slated for availability in October
2003 with an estimated street price of US$ 249.99.

"Finally, a wireless music system that’s designed right," said Mala Sharma,
director of product marketing for Creative Labs, Inc. "Other companies don’t
deliver wireless solutions that fit into the way consumers really want to
experience music; they require the use of a TV for music navigation which limits
playback to only those rooms with a TV. The Sound Blaster Wireless Music will
change the way you listen to music in your home. Its revolutionary remote
control allows users to navigate through their digital music collections right
from the remote’s LCD, and select and play their music wherever they
want-whether in the living room, kitchen, patio or bedroom."

RF Remote Control with Built-in LCD

Sound Blaster Wireless Music includes a RF remote control with a large LCD that
enables users to view all of their music directly on the remote, eliminating the
need for a TV. Music menu controls allow users to browse through their MP3 and
WMA music collections and select songs and playlists they want to hear.
Dedicated Player Controls on the remote make familiar playback and volume
control functions hassle-free, and the Preset Playlist Buttons enable the user
to start their favorite playlists or Smart Playlists at the touch of a button.
Since the remote uses RF communication, it can be used from anywhere in the room
even if the receiver is out of sight.

Easy to Set-up System

The Sound Blaster Wireless Music receiver can connect automatically to an
existing 802.11b or 802.11g network using its Automatic Network Detection
feature. A straightforward USB set-up also ensures a smooth installation for
consumers who have a secured (WEP enabled) network or in areas with multiple
networks.

Sound Blaster Wireless Music can be connected to powered speakers to work as a
stand-alone music playback system using standard RCA connectors. The wireless
receiver also connects directly to home theater systems for high-quality digital
playback using the optical (SPDIF) connector. Up to four Sound Blaster Wireless
Music receivers can be installed, extending the music on a single PC into
multiple rooms so that users can choose different types of music to be played in
different rooms simultaneously, or can even pull from the same source to play
the same music.

Creative MediaSource(TM) software is bundled with Sound Blaster Wireless Music
for CD ripping and easy organization of digital music collections, as well as
for defining parameters for Smart Playlists. Smart Playlists are dynamic lists
of songs pulled from the entire music collection based on the user’s preference.
