IOGEAR’s USB Net ShareStation Enables USB Device Sharing Across a Network

Allows access to hard drives, flash drives, printers, speakers or Webcams
as if they were directly connected to the users’ computer

Irvine, CA – May 19, 2008 – Small office and home users now have a simple,
cost-effective solution to share USB devices, such as external hard drives,
flash drives, printers, speakers and Webcams, across a network with
IOGEAR’s USB Net ShareStation.

Workers can use the product to access external hard drives to save files
that are readily accessible to other employees on the network. They can
print, scan or fax from any connected computer, as the USB Net ShareStation
supports Mutli-Function Printer sharing. Connecting the product to a
wireless router also allows users to wirelessly share USB devices, while
reducing cable clutter.

IOGEAR’s USB Net ShareStation lets audio enthusiasts access USB speakers
connected to the network and stream audio throughout the home or office.
The product provides high throughput rates, ensuring that the sound
transfers in optimal quality. Individuals can also use the device to access
a connected Webcam as a low-cost surveillance solution if they want to
monitor activity in an alternative room.

“With multiple users in a home or small office, individuals need a simple,
cost-effective way to share USB devices if they can’t access them
directly,” said Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR. “Our USB
Net ShareStation lets consumers access any flash drive, hard drive,
printer, speaker or Webcam on their network, greatly increasing
productivity as they can work off of USB tools as if they were connected
directly to their computer.”

The product can support up to four USB devices simultaneously by connecting
an AC-powered 4-port USB 2.0 Hub. It complies with all USB 2.0
specifications and is compatible with Windows 2000, XP and Vista operating
systems. IOGEAR’s USB Net ShareStation is priced at $79.95 (MSRP) and
available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well
