Entropic to Provide Insight on How Advancements in Set-top Box System-on-a-Chip and MoCA Home Networking Solutions Empower MSOs' Transition to IP-Based Video Delivery Into and Throughout the Home

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its participation in the upcoming Light Reading webinar titled 'Home is Where the Network Is.' The session, scheduled for one hour on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, beginning at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET, will address the key cable operator requirements needed to seamlessly transition to full IP-based video service delivery over the next few years.

Offering the silicon perspective, Entropic's Roger Gregory, vice president of Marketing, Cable/Telco Segments, will join Alan Breznick, a senior analyst at Heavy Reading, and executives from ARRIS and QuickPlay Media in a discussion on cable multiple-system operators' (MSOs) impending shift to IP-based video service delivery without overwhelming their already strained networks. Entropic plays a key role in this evolution as the company provides both set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) and Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) home networking solutions to transform how traditional HDTV broadcast and IP-based streaming video content are seamlessly, reliably, and securely delivered, processed, and distributed into and throughout the home.

The webinar will cover:

  • When cable operators will start running IP video simulcasts
  • How much extra bandwidth these IP video simulcasts will consume
  • How MSOs intend to leverage the cloud to deliver more IP-enabled video services
  • What new tools cable operators will need to carry out the transition
  • What new devices and/or software will be needed in the home
  • How cable operators plan to distribute IP video signals around the home
  • Which home networking technologies will they employ

"As the only pure-play platform semiconductor company in connected home entertainment, we are evolving how today's global service providers advance the way IP-based entertainment is brought into, distributed and enjoyed throughout the home," said Roger Gregory. "Our set-top box system-on-a-chip and MoCA silicon platforms empower service providers to leverage the cloud to deliver more IP-enabled video services, including interactive programming guides, networked DVRs, and multi-screen video, among other IP-based entertainment services, as they move to new gateway/client architectures in the home."

"This webinar will tackle many of the key questions facing cable operators as they scramble to upgrade their networks for IP video delivery in the home," said Alan Breznick, who will host and moderate the webinar for Light Reading. "Along with that, we'll also address the latest progress on the multiscreen video front by cable operators and other service providers."
