Technicolor Partners With Entropic to Deliver a Powerful Client Set Top Box

By Integrating Entropic's Latest Silicon With Comcast Reference Design Kit
(RDK), Technicolor Builds a Competitive Solution That Delivers Superior
Multi-Room Experience

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consumer Electronics Show 2013 --
Technicolor (Euronext Paris:TCH) today announced it is developing a next
generation video client based on hardware and software specifications
developed by Comcast. Bundled with a multituner gateway from cable operators,
the MediaPlay set top box will deliver IP video to any screen in the home.

The Technicolor MediaPlay client solution has been built upon Entropic's
TSC188 CPU, boasting over 5000 DMIPS with a dual-core ARM® Cortex™ A9 core
architecture that provides acceleration for all types of media processing.
Further it supports home networking via its bundled MoCA 1.1 silicon and
software solution to ensure a powerful, stable connectivity backbone. The
Entropic-powered Technicolor MediaPlay client solution supports 3D video and
graphics to render the most advanced interfaces based on HTML5 or Adobe Flash.

The Technicolor solution is fully compliant with the Comcast-developed X1
client-server architecture, and supports DTCP-IP technology and multiple
Digital Rights Management (DRM) to offer full content security over MoCA home

By leveraging the RDK (Reference Design Kit) software specification developed
by Comcast, Technicolor MediaPlay offers an open solution to develop and
deploy new services and applications more efficiently across heterogeneous
cable platforms.

"Comcast is very pleased that Technicolor and Entropic have developed this
client solution," said Steve Reynolds, Senior Vice President of Premises
Technology for Comcast. "The collaboration between Entropic, Technicolor and
Comcast's RDK development teams will help enable the development of powerful
client devices within highly competitive schedules."

"Our collaboration with Entropic has proven very powerful," said Barbara
Bessolo, Senior Vice President for Technicolor Connected Home Americas. "As
new RDK-compliant applications and services become available, cable operators
will be able to deploy them on the MediaPlay client set top box and extend the
value of their offering over time."

"Thanks to our collaboration with Technicolor, operators will be able to more
efficiently deliver quality experiences across their gateway/client
architectures," said Mark Samuel, Senior Vice President and General Manager,
Set-top Box Group, Entropic. "Our leadership in building MoCA networked
platforms that support highly-efficient, media and graphics-rich content helps
bring the power of cloud-based applications to every screen in the home."
