devolo Introduces World First in AV Home Networking
dLAN 200 AVdesk adaptor supports HDTV and triple play services with 200Mbps home networking
04 October, 2006 – devolo has launched the dLAN 200 AVdesk – a high-speed home networking solution which supports high definition multi-media entertainment and triple play services, with data transfer speeds of up to 200 Mbps.
The dLAN 200 AVdesk has the bandwidth to support full multi-media home networking through the whole house. With transfer rates of 200Mbps and ADSL2+ technology, the HomePlug supports HDTV, video-streaming, Voice Over IP and high speed Internet.
Using Intellon Turbo integrated circuits, the adaptor features Ethernet connectivity enabling PCs, broadband modems and routers, games consoles and set-top boxes to be quickly connected to the network.
dLAN 200 AVdesk HomePlugs are available from 11th October at a recommended retail price of £99.99 (inc VAT). The Starter Kit consists of two adaptors and costs £179.99. All packs come with a comprehensive three-year warranty and support package.
Heiko Harbers, CEO of devolo said: “HomePlug AV transforms household electrical wiring into the backbone for a home network enabling Internet, TV and video-streaming to be used throughout the house – giving our customers true value for money and a platform for future home networking.
“The dLAN 200 AVdesk combines powerful functionality with ease of use – a plug and play solution which has the bandwidth and robustness to deliver multiple streams of rich entertainment along with other digital traffic, wherever there is a wall socket, acting just like a physical cable.”
With proven security and functionality benefits over both traditional Ethernet cabling and WLAN, the dLAN 200 AVdesk adaptor removes the need to install extra wiring throughout the house, and is unaffected by any reduction in transmission quality, which can often be caused by walls and ceilings when operating on wireless networks.
devolo was founded in May 2002 by former employees of the now insolvent German data communications and graphics card developer ELSA AG. Focusing on the consumer data communications marketplace, devolo has taken over all the technological expertise from ELSA AG along with the brand names and product rights for “MicroLink”.
20 years of experience in developing data communications solutions provides the ultimate foundation for producing a broad spectrum of high quality products.
Whilst the UK will focus primarily on the MicroLink dLAN HomePlug networking range of products, the current European range also includes analogue modems, ADSL modems and focused networking technologies for private consumers and professional business users.
Due to the many years of experience that our employees collectively possess, a relatively young company like devolo can assure the quality of its products straight from the outset. In addition, our in-house R&D team constantly ensure that a flow of innovative products are developed to match market requirements.
