Aureal Welcomes Creative Labs to Competitive Marketplace.
FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Aureal Semiconductor Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AURL) today announced that it is extending a congratulatory message to Creative Labs for finally entering the PCI audio race with its latest SoundBlaster Live! product line. As a leader in 3D audio, Aureal has been instrumental in paving the way for the emergence of PCI audio with its early licensing efforts and strategic third party relationships, followed by the success of its Vortex-based PCI audio accelerators.
Aureal is a pioneer in 3D audio technology, including being the first company to bring 3D positional audio to the PC on both two and four speakers via the early Diamond Monster Sound product line. To this day, Aureal continues to garner design wins from top tier PC OEMs and sound card manufacturers.
"Creative's relatively recent introduction of a PCI product line and its promotion of 3D audio technology have clearly validated Aureal's vision for the future of audio," said Kip Kokinakis, Aureal's president and CEO. "Aureal has been leading the market into PCI and positional 3D audio since the inception of the company in 1996. Creative's attempts to thwart Aureal's success through litigation and misleading public statements (such as irrelevant associations between today's Aureal and the old Media Vision) is simply further evidence that Aureal's vision of the future of PC audio is the one to be followed."
Aureal builds advanced audio semiconductor and software solutions that increase functionality and features for personal computers and consumer electronics devices. Aureal develops audio processing semiconductor chips and sound cards and also licenses technology designed to define and improve advanced audio standards in the marketplace.

Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, dependence on the PC and consumer electronics industries and on product lines based on new technologies; foundry capacity, availability and reliability; competition and pricing pressures; and other risks detailed from time to time in the company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
