Launch Event and Demos in New York City next month, November 2007

18th October 2007, Valencia, SPAIN – DS2 announced today that it has developed technology that will allow next generation powerline products to operate at a peak data rate of 400Mbps. This milestone will enable the development of new HD-capable multimedia applications, such as multi-channel HD-IPTV delivery or multi-room PVR.

Demonstrations of the 400 Mbps powerline technology will be featured at the invitation only technology launch in New York City next month. DS2 400Mbps technology will be available in next generation products from DS2 on time to satisfy the demands for extra bandwidth in the digital home and last mile applications that most analysts predict will happen from 2009 onwards. Next generation multimedia applications including multi-room IPTV and HDTV networked entertainment services, networked PVRs (personal video recorders) and multiple video streams will require bandwidth sufficient to support 5 or more simultaneous video streams.

A recent study from the Diffusion Group on ”Bandwidth Challenges to the Digital Home” (2007), confirmed that the need for bandwidth sufficient to deliver at least 3 HDTV and 2 SDTV streams to the home is foreseen as early as 2009.
