devolo presents innovative HomePlug® solution for comprehensive hybrid TV at the IBC


devolo AG from Aachen, Germany, the global market leader in the HomePlug powerline market, is presenting an innovative hybrid TV solution via powerline at the IBC 2009 in Amsterdam. Hybrid TV enables comprehensive supply of IPTV services to households via broadband and satellite. With this product, devolo offers Internet service providers a cost-efficient, turnkey complete solution for signal distribution to end customers.

The powerline specialist devolo AG will showcase an innovative complete solution for signal distribution of hybrid TV at the International Broadcast Conference (IBC) trade fair held from 11 to 15 September 2009.

Hybrid TV enables Internet service providers to provide comprehensive IPTV programming, even in regions with relatively poor broadband network infrastructure.

The HomePlug® Hybrid TV Set developed by devolo consists of a dLAN® DVBS2 satellite TV system that ensures the distribution of the live TV signal throughout the house in Full HD quality via the power line. Thus xDSL and FTTH-compatible high transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps are possible in the home. Moreover, dLAN® is a scalable solution additional tuners can be integrated without any problem.
