December 19, 2006 -- HomePlug powerline applications provider Arkados (www.arkados.com) announced that it will unveil numerous reference designs at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES - www.cesweb.org), to be held January 8 - 11, 2007, in Las Vegas.
The company reports that its turnkey reference designs for a variety of high-demand home audio and video applications - including platforms for enabling whole-house audio and IPTV systems - have been "gaining increased attention" with "global consumer electronics players" over the past year.
"Our unique applications orientation and our implementation of HomePlug standards have great appeal, especially as the industry drives harder and harder towards cost-effective and timely productization to meet consumer demands for digital home connectivity," comments Jim Reeber, director of marketing for Arkados.
Arkados contends that powerline communications technology is most effective when built into products, rather than when added on with an adapter; the company says that its solutions and are designed to make such built-in connectivity easier. Two Arkados applications will be displayed at the HomePlug Powerline Alliance exhibit at CES.
Also at the show, Arkados's president and CEO Oleg Logvinov will be a panelist on a discussion entitled "The State of Home Networking," to be held on Tuesday, January 9 at 1:30 P.M. in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) South Hall, Room S106-107. Logvinov will discuss the powerline networking industry and interoperability as a key factor for ubiquity and user acceptance.
