For the HomePlug Alliance and our member companies, 2007 has already jumped off to a very exciting start with our big splash at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in January. You can read the details in the article below.
Feature Story: Consumer Electronics Show
With the slogan "Content. Technology. And everything in between," CES 2007 heralded a new age of digital entertainment where content, internet, networking, and consumer electronics combine to create a new digital world in today's living rooms, and all other rooms of the house.
In keeping with this vision, members of the HomePlug Powerline Alliance came together to create a tremendous presence at CES 2007, with a large percentage of the alliance's 70+ members displaying HomePlug products.
CES 2007 was the beginning of a whole new era in the delivery and distribution of audio/video content throughout the home. The full spectrum of inter-related products ranged from semiconductor level solutions and reference designs up through networking, content delivery, display and security products. These new products are clearly constituting an entire ecosystem of HomePlug enabled capabilities that streamlines and unifies consumer home electronics, and is laying a new foundation for the digital home.
One important highlight at CES was from Sharp, a long time Alliance BoD member. Sharp displayed a new HomePlug AV PLC Adapter transporting HDTV content to a Sharp AQUOS high-definition television. Another was the family of products designed by GigaFast Inc. that enable consumers to distribute audio around a house by using HomePlug technology. Prototypes shown by Good Way Technology will allow consumers to use an iPod powerline docking station and powerline audio adapters to connect to traditional speakers, delivering music from the iPod throughout a home over conventional electrical wiring.
Other new and exciting capabilities included audio enhancement products for improved sound through HomePlug networking, IPTV-based home security and surveillance capabilities, video processing and channel management solutions.
