Published: Fri Apr 16 2010

Powerline networking specialist devolo has launched the new dLAN 200 AV Kit and dLAN 200 AVpass Kit – HomePlug solutions that enable freesat viewers to receive Internet TV services (IPTV), such as BBC iPlayer by connecting up their freesat digital box or freesat TV.

Created to work specifically with freesat receivers, the dLAN 200 AV and dLAN 200 AVpass adapters allow users to connect any enabled freesat digital box to their home broadband router through use of the household electricity network and can deliver data speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s.

There are two products in the dLAN 200 AV freesat range: the dLAN 200 AVpass Kit and dLAN 200 AV Kit. The dLAN 200 AVpass includes an inbuilt electrical socket to ensure that no electrical outlet is lost and also features an integrated network filter to minimise interference from any connected devices and optimise networking speeds. Alternatively, the dLAN 200 AV is a more compact solution for those looking to save space.

Once the adapters are connected, users will be able to use the red button to select the IPTV services, such as BBC iPlayer, which allows viewers to watch BBC TV shows and listen to radio shows from the last 7 days.

Commenting on the launch of the latest dLAN products, Peter Huddleston, UK operations manager at devolo, says: "The dLAN 200 AV Kit and dLAN 200 AVpass Kit offer users a simple and effective way to enjoy Internet TV services on their television for free and without having to wait for downloads, providing customers with an even greater choice of programmes to watch."

The dLAN 200 AV Kit and dLAN 200 AVpass Kit are the latest editions to the devolo range of dLAN networking products and are now freely available, with retail partners including Argos, PC World, COMET, Currys, Maplin Electronics, Hughes Electrical and Bennetts Retail. Both adapters also feature devolo’s patented power saving mode, which automatically uses up to 60% less power in stand-by mode.

The dLAN 200 AVpass Kit is retailing at £119.99 inc VAT and the dLAN 200 AV Kit is retailing at £99.99 inc VAT. Both starter kits come with 2 adapters and 2 Ethernet connection cables.

About devolo AG
Competence by concentration. Since 2002, devolo AG has been developing innovative powerline products for private customers and commercial use. The dLAN product portfolio is based on the international HomePlug standards and makes it possible to create networks in buildings easily via the existing wiring, such as electrical wiring, coaxial cables and two-wire lines. Whilst the SoHo line of products satisfy the ever-increasing customer demands as an all-encompassing connectivity solution for IT and CE products; business clients also experience an ideal technology with which to retroactively integrate secure and stable network solutions into existing infrastructures. devolo invests its development resources exclusively for improving this technology by means of its own patented solutions—thus to provide dLAN products which offer even more power, more security, greater energy efficiency and are friendlier to the environment. This is how the internationally operated company has become the global leader. Numerous top-product test reviews and distinctions in the press, not to mention over six million shipped adapters, substantiate devolo's success. In the market, devolo stands for powerline products that are as innovative as they are high in quality. As a sustainable trade company, devolo holds in high regard its responsibility towards its customers, its employees and the environment.
