TV signals through mains supply At CeBIT technology fair in Hannover, Germany, Devolo is showing off technology to route data throughout mains power circuits in a home. While this concept is already in use and is improving as time goes on, Devolo has developed technology to route TV signals throughout the home using mains power circuits. These systems typically work using a specially adapted plug that acts as a mini-hub to route data to devices around the house.
"It connects to the set-top box and converts that TV signal to an IP signal," said Andre Jansen, a spokesman for Devolo. "The adapter has a range of 200m and that's enough for a normal private household." Devolo has yet to announce prices or availability of the home TV network system.
