Entropic's live demonstrations and news reflect the Company's continued efforts to advance the way entertainment and applications are brought into, distributed and enjoyed throughout the connected home by ensuring:

  • ACCESS AT THE EDGE.

At The Cable Show, Entropic will demonstrate the highest performance (800Mbps), most scalable, cost-effective Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) solutions to meet the demands of the cable access consumer.
  • WHOLE-HOME COVERAGE. Entropic's solutions connect customer premises equipment (CPE) and retail consumer devices throughout the home via a robust, dependable MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) home networking backbone. Entropic invented the MoCA technology which is now enabling the shift from traditional broadcast to IP video distribution throughout the home. At The Cable Show, the Company will show its innovative gateway/client architecture solutions, unveil new MoCA-based CPE devices and highlight the latest MoCA 2.0 silicon solutions.
  • RICH TV EXPERIENCES, EVERYWHERE. Entropic's set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) technologies enrich the cable TV experience. The Company's open standards-based SoC platform is inherently efficient and leverages the powerful ARM® processor to provide superior performance for today's STBs, IP-Clients and hybrid systems. At The Cable Show, Entropic will highlight innovative video processing and advanced software capabilities as well as demonstrate applications utilizing Entropic's powerful architecture.

"As the only pure-play platform semiconductor company in connected home entertainment, we are transforming how today's global cable / MSOs advance the way content is brought into, distributed and enjoyed throughout the home," said Dr. Anton Monk, vice president, Technology, Entropic. "Our set-top box system-on-a-chip and MoCA silicon platforms empower cable service providers to generate new revenue opportunities by deploying innovative entertainment services as they move to new gateway/client architectures in the home."
