New York, NY, PEPCOM Holiday Spectacular! — Sept. 18, 2008 — Memorex, a portfolio brand of Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), announced today the availability of the Memorex SingStand microphone speaker system, an interactive karaoke system that lets you sing along to music stored on iPod® devices or any MP3 device. Taking karaoke to a new level of reality, the Memorex SingStand features a microphone and full-size, integrated mic stand, eliminating the traditional CD+G unit that displays graphics and lyrics. The Memorex SingStand will be on display at this evening's Holiday Spectacular! media event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York city from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Memorex SingStand microphone speaker system is equally perfect for acting out your rock star fantasies when no one is around, and for entertaining a friendly audience at family get-togethers. If you feel like sharing the spotlight, the Memorex SingStand comes equipped with dual microphone inputs for duet performances. Connecting to other musical instruments is also easy — simply plug them into the input jacks for a truly can't-miss rock band performance.
"The popularity of amateur singing shows on TV and in communities everywhere just underscores the notion that every family has a budding vocalist in their midst," said Carla Pihowich, Memorex brand director, Imation Corp. "Unlike traditional karaoke machines, the Memorex SingStand lets you feel like a real performer when you step behind the mic stand and rock the stage — or just your living room."
Any up-and-coming artist will impress friends and family with the SingStand's echo effects, while the full-range speakers built into the base provide quality sound. SingStand has an integrated microphone stand, two 4-inch speakers and comes with one microphone. The Auto Voice Control feature serves to eliminate original song vocals. It plays all iPod® and MP3 devices with 3.5 mm connection.

The Memorex SingStand microphone speaker system has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $69.99 and will be available at Walmart stores across the nation beginning in November.
