Boston, MA - Polatis Inc, a supplier of high performance optical switch products, today announced its plans to release several core new products at OFC/NFOEC 2006. Polatis will be demonstrating these products as part of an exhibit aimed at users in the video broadcast, Government systems, instrumentation & test, and telecommunication networking segments. Attendees in Anaheim will be able to interact with switching demonstrations as part of a high definition video network, a remote fiber test system for network monitoring & fault location, and an automated test solution for optical modules. The live product demonstrations will take place in the Polatis booth #1940, during exhibition hours Tuesday March 7 through Thursday March 9.

OFC/NFOEC 2006 is the first tradeshow after the merger of Polatis Ltd with Continuum Photonics late in 2005, and the company will now be exhibiting as the combined business, Polatis Incorporated. With the merger, Polatis has strengthened its position in the optical systems industry, emerging as a world leader in optical switching. All of the Polatis products are based on the DirectLight platform - a beam-steering technology that sets the standard for optical performance. Polatis has carried this momentum forward, with an expanded product line, multiple manufacturing locations, and Sales and Support in North America, Europe, and now Asia.

At OFC/NFOEC 2006, Polatis will announce several entirely new products, marking a significant expansion to its existing product line of optical switches. These product introductions include:

* The TrinityTM family of optical video routing switchers, a specialized product for customers in the video transport, broadcast, and post-production industries. Through its all-optical nature, Trinity expands the capabilities of today's broadcast infrastructure to meet the needs of existing & future broadcast standards. Symmetric and asymmetric configurations to 64 total ports are currently offered.

* As an expansion of its Instrumentation line, Polatis is launching the VST optical switch. The VST is the first of its kind, and fully integrates an ultra-low loss optical matrix switch with variable optical attenuator and calibrated power meter in one compact package. Port sizes include 4x4 through 32x32, and options for the powerful user-assignable port asymmetry feature.
