WinHEC, Los Angeles, CA May 14, 2007 Intellon Corporation, a leading provider of HomePlug-compatible integrated circuits (ICs) for home networking, networked entertainment and broadband over powerline (BPL) applications, announced today that AMD will be demonstrating a HomePlug AV-enabled home entertainment ecosystem at WinHEC 2007 in Los Angeles. The demonstration features an AMD LIVE! PC running Windows Vista, streaming HD video content to a Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming console, all interconnected using Intellon's INT6000 HomePlug AV-based ICs integrated directly into the power supply of each product. With this embedded topology, the power cord for each product carries both electric power and broadband connectivity. No other cables or wires are needed to stream HD video content from the AMD LIVE! PC to the Xbox 360 with full Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees, and with the stability and robustness demanded by this very challenging application. This demonstration will take place during AMD's presentation entitled "Whole Home Media Access over Mixed Topologies" on May 17, 2007 at 9:45 am at WinHEC..
