Entropic Communications’ Silicon Selected To Support Multiroom Solution For Buckeye Cablevision

January 13, 2010 (FinancialWire) — Entropic Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENTR), a provider of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment, said its field-proven home networking chipset, based on the MoCA(R) (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) standard, has been selected by Pace Americas for its Network Attached Storage device.

The device is part of Pace’s new Home Content Sharing solution, which is in field trials with cable operators including Buckeye Cablevision.

Pace’s Home Content Sharing solution represents a new paradigm in multiroom DVR (MR-DVR) by providing centralized storage that enables multiple non-DVR set-top boxes in the home to access and share recorded content. The NAS device is available with various hard drive capacities and an eSATA port for easy expansion. The initial group of cable operators and industry cooperatives working with Pace opens up a target market of up to 26 million subscribers for this new technology. Pace’s architecture provides a NAS platform that can improve the viewing experience in TODAY’s environment and potentially evolve into a gateway device to offer next-generation services to Buckeye Cablevision’s customers.

Pace’s approach with the NAS is a forerunner to a MSO network architecture where media gateways are used in conjunction with thin client STBs. These architectures are not possible without a high-speed, highly reliable home network. Entropic’s home networking silicon, which provides MoCA functionality in the NAS, is an important element in enabling a robust, high-speed whole home entertainment network. Capable of sending multiple simultaneous streams of high-definition video between rooms with unsurpassed quality and speeds up to 175 Mbps of application throughout, 16 node support, parameterized quality of service and remote diagnostic capabilities, the silicon delivers a flawless entertainment experience while working in conjunction with Pace’s advanced system architecture and video routing.

Entropic Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENTR) is a leading fabless semiconductor company that is engineering the future of connected home networking and entertainment by providing next-generation silicon and software technologies to the world’s leading cable, telco and satellite service providers, OEMs and consumer electronic manufacturers.
