Intellon HomePlug Powerline ICs Selected by Throughtek for Innovative Security Camera That Screws into Light Socket

- New security camera screws into a light socket and uses the existing electrical wiring to transmit camera video back to computer monitor or over broadband gateway and Internet.

Orlando, Fla., March 18, 2009 - Intellon Corporation (Nasdaq: ITLN), a leading provider of HomePlug®-compatible integrated circuits (ICs) for home networking, networked entertainment, Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) and smart grid applications, announced that Throughtek, a Taiwan-based consumer electronics maker, is using Intellon's HomePlug AV-based INT6400, Intellon's newest chip, in a lamp-socket IP camera that requires no outlet or video cables for operation.

The Throughtek CLJ100L camera unit (the company also makes a model for outside use) screws into any available light socket inside or outside the home, enabling quick and easy installation. The video feed from the camera travels through the socket and over the existing electrical wiring to a computer and monitor in the house or through a router and broadband gateway to the Internet, allowing remote viewing of the camera's output. The simple screw-in, screw-out design allows easy relocation of the camera throughout a home at the user's convenience.

The CLJ100L also features infrared light emitters so that imaging can be transmitted even in low-light situations. When used outside, in existing floodlight sockets, the emitters provide the light necessary to view scenes at night. The CLJ100L can also be used with an accessory screw-in base with power cord that can be located near any convenient electrical outlet.

"Cabling is very expensive and unavoidably blemishes the home decor," said Throughtek's Charles Kao, general manager. "Radio frequency cameras are often unstable and have interference problems, but with Intellon HomePlug powerline technology, we get a very stable, reliable and easy to use communications medium."

"Internet cameras are a perfect application for our powerline technology and seem to be getting a lot of consumer attention," said Rick Furtney, president and COO of Intellon Corporation. "Throughtek displayed their camera at the CeBIT Show in Hanover, Germany and generated a lot of excitement for the innovative light-socket design."
