New Digi ShowBox™ Eliminates PCs from Electronic Exhibits

- Stand-alone presentation player reduces cost of tradeshow exhibits; frees booth space -

MINNETONKA, Minn. (Jan. 8, 2008) - Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today introduced the Digi ShowBox - a stand-alone presentation player for tradeshow exhibits, information displays, mobile workforce presentations or any other electronic exhibit. The cost-effective Digi ShowBox eliminates the need for dedicated notebook PCs with electronic presentations, displays or exhibits. It is small, rugged and lightweight, making it easy to hide on a tradeshow floor, and inexpensive and safe to ship. Customers also no longer need to invest in expensive and single-use printed graphics.

"The Digi ShowBox is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket," said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. "It has no fan or hard drive so is extremely rugged and easy to ship. It's one-third to one-fourth the cost of a laptop and eliminates the cost and hassle of printed graphics."

To use the Digi ShowBox, users simply load content from a USB flash drive and connect it to a monitor. It features two modes: play and configuration/thumbnail. Play mode begins running content as soon as the USB drive is inserted or allows mouse control for image advance. Configuration/thumbnail mode allows users to view graphics as thumbnails if more than one presentation is included on a single flash drive. It also allows users to choose between various sorting, slide playing and startup modes that allow for customization in how and when the multiple presentations appear.

The Digi ShowBox is now available for $399. For more information about the Digi ShowBox, please visit www.digishowbox.com.
