AverLogic to showcase HD streaming over power lines at Computex 2009

 

(Taipei, April 14, 2009) With Computex 2009 fast approaching, video/audio solution provider AverLogic Technologies is gearing up to showcase an exciting H.264 HD A/V streaming over power-line product along with other power-line streaming solutions including Audio Streaming and an IP Network Camera.

These demonstrations will give visitors a chance to witness the latest technology used to employ existing home power lines to transmit video and audio. “For piping video/audio throughout your home, PLC (Power Line Communications) offers many advantages compared to wireless”, says Averlogic CEO Kyle Chang. These advantages include farther transmission distances, more security and less noise.  Another alternative is portable Video CE devices but, of course, they are often burdened with heavy batteries and are cumbersome to transport from room to room. That is why Averlogic chooses PLC as the best choice for streaming HD video throughout the home.

HD streaming over existing power lines – No extra wiring necessary

Power is a basic requirement for any home Video/Audio CE device; these devices, whether video sources or video displays, must be located near power outlets. Since most rooms are equipped with outlets, it makes sense to employ existing power lines for streaming HD video from source to display, throughout your entire home; no need for hassling with extra wiring. Aside from the convenience and cost savings, not many realize that interference in power lines are actually less than current wireless solutions, especially those using 2.4 GHz band for wireless applications. Additionally, Power-line transmission (compared to wireless) also covers more distance (300m vs 100m, 1-4 floors vs. 1-2 floors); is not limited by wall/structure interference; and is less prone to security breaks.

Averlogic’s H.264 HDMI 1080p HD A/V Streaming over Power-line module consists of a transmitter (TX) and a receiver (RX).  It allows H.264-compressed HD (up to 1920x1080 at frame rates of 24p or 60i) video and audio digital signals to stream from your A/V equipment (e.g. Blu-ray Disc™ player, video game console like PS3, HD DVD or STB) to any compatible HDTV. The combination of H.264 CODEC, Media Network Controller, and PLC technologies make the video and audio content stream smoothly (data size up to 20Mbps) and for long distances (from 1st to 3rd floor with RC or SRC construction). One transmitter in the living room can deliver signals to 3 receivers in 3 different rooms. The receiver module allows manufacturers easy integration into an HDTV design via HDMI™ interface and it avoids the hassles of wiring between your A/V transmitter and receiver equipments. It basically supports 5 sources (HDMI x 3 + YPbPr x 1 + CVBS x 1), which can all be controlled by the Transmitter-included remote at the Receiver side.

Other Audio/Video Streaming Solutions over Power-Lines

Averlogic will also demonstrate its “Streaming iPod & 192 kHz Audio over Power-line” solution and a wall-mounted audio sender and receiver product. These reference designs allow CD/DVD-quality digital audio to be piped (transmitted) from an audio source (e.g. iPod or CD player) over existing power lines to any location in your home that has a power outlet, indoors or outdoors.  

Averlogic will also demonstrate its “IP Network Camera over Power-line” product, which is a stand alone camera (no PC needed), whose video/audio can be accessed throughout your home using existing power-lines or anywhere in the world using the LAN.
