Rockleigh, N.J. - Crestron has signed an agreement with
AVAD to sell its line to the distributors' custom electronics and CE dealer
customers.

Through this partnership with AVAD, Crestron is now bringing Prodigy
and Adagio
home technology to a new market, reaching millions of consumers, by supplying
authorized AVAD dealers with the latest entertainment and control systems, the
companies said in a release.

 The new promotion and
increased consumer market penetration will help broaden awareness and
strengthen the demand for custom home installation.

 "This partnership is very exciting, not only for Crestron
and AVAD, but for the whole industry," said Randy Klein, Crestron executive VP.
"Both companies have tremendous resources and are completely committed to
success. With our products and AVAD's sales channels, we are confident we will
expand and develop the marketplace and the industry."

Only qualified AVAD dealers will be authorized to sell the select
line of Crestron home control products. Crestron and AVAD will evaluate dealers
based on available resources and their capability to fully support the line and
home owners. Qualified dealers will be required to install their own
demonstration systems and complete onsite training offered by AVAD and
Crestron.

"Being able to offer Crestron products to our dealer base is an
extension of our commitment to provide custom installers with the industry's
most innovative products and brands," said Jim Annes, VP/GM of AVAD.

Both companies said more details about the product rollout will
be forthcoming in the next 30 days.
