April 9, 2007 -- HomePlug powerline applications developer Arkados announced that products containing its system-on-chip platforms were demonstrated at a variety of exhibits at the recent CeBIT 2007 trade fair in Hannover, Germany.
Devolo AG showcased its dLAN Audio Extender, which transfers music files stored on a Windows computer throughout the home, creating synchronized whole-house music without the need for new wiring.
International ODM GigaFast displayed its PE883-VO HomePlug Video Out Node at the HomePlug Powerline Alliance booth. The demonstration illustrated whole-house video monitoring using HomePlug-certified security cameras. Arkados silicon powers the video adapter, which enables viewers to see camera feeds on a regular television set.
Good Way, a manufacturer of consumer electronics products, displayed solutions that use Arkados chips and software for iPod docking stations and a powered speaker configuration for home audio distribution and video streaming of IPTV streams for video distribution throughout the home.
"These products from different companies illustrate the varied and numerous uses of our turnkey reference designs," comments Oleg Logvinov, president and CEO of Arkados. "Our patented technology is the basis for an array of solutions we can provide for distributing digital music, photos and video contents to new and existing consumer electronics and appliances, all of which clearly demonstrate the flexibility of our solutions. While we are very excited with our progress, we believe we have barely scratched the surface with regard to the applications possible with our integrated system-on-chip and software solutions."
Organizers reported that as many as 480,000 people attended CeBIT 2007, which featured 6,153 exhibitors from 77 different countries.
