Avstar is possibly the first UK based commercial product aimed at the home market to offer AV distribution over CAT5. The product release date is officially 1st Quarter 2001 but is expected sooner rather than later. Pricing will depend on system configuration, however roughly speaking a 3 room system is going to be around £1100.00 – £1200.00.
“Avstar provides whole house TV using CAT5 cabling. Watch ANY of the available TV sources ANYWHERE in your home without need to duplicate expensive set-top equipment and saving money on multiple subscriptions to satellite or cable service.”
