- Embedded HomePlug AV-based ICs Enable Windows Vista-based PC and Xbox 360 Console to Stream HD Video over Existing Powerlines to HP and Sharp LCD TVs -

WinHEC, Los Angeles, CA May 15, 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 it is demonstrating a HomePlug AV-enabled home entertainment ecosystem at WinHEC 2007 in Los Angles. The demonstration features a Hewlett-Packard Pavillion PC running Windows Vista, an Xbox 360 console, a Hewlett-Packard LCD TV and a Sharp Aquos LCD TV, 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 Windows Vista-based PC or Xbox 360 to either or both HD displays, with full Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees and with the stability and robustness demanded by this very challenging application. This demonstration will take place in the HomePlug Powerline Alliance booth #528 at WinHEC.

Andy Melder, senior vice president of strategic business development of Intellon, will explain the capabilities of HomePlug AV in a Windows Vista environment at a WinHEC presentation entitled "HomePlug AV and Windows Vista".

"Microsoft is pleased that Intellon is participating in WinHEC this year," said Dave Wascha, director of Windows Client Product Management at Microsoft Corp. "It is technology advancements like Intellon's that help pave the way for innovation on the Windows platform and in the industry."

"Intellon is committed to taking the mystery out of home connectivity," said Melder. "HomePlug AV is already remarkably easy for consumers to set up and use. We look forward to continuing to work with Microsoft to enhance the capabilities of our HomePlug AV-based ICs to take full advantage of the advanced networking features of Windows Vista."
