Entropic Gets Aggressive in Latin America; Showcases Next-Generation Platform
Semiconductor Solutions at ABTA 2013
As the Latin American Pay-TV Market Grows, Entropic Demonstrates High
Performance, Low Power Set-top Box System-on-a-Chip and Home Networking
Silicon Required to Advance the Pay-TV Market
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world
leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced it will be
at ABTA 2013 (booth #D13) in Sao Paulo this week showcasing platform
semiconductor solutions that advance next-generation TV experiences for the
Latin American Pay-TV market.
Latin America is undergoing explosive Pay-TV market growth and making a
significant transition from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD)
TV. In fact, according to a June 2013 report titled, Pay-TV in Latin America:
Cable, DTH and IPTV 2013 – 2018 from Dataxis, a global business intelligence
research firm, the seven largest Pay-TV markets in Latin America will total
98.32 million subscribers by 2018. This figure will equal a penetration rate
of 68.1 percent of the total number of homes with TVs; almost 3.6 times what
was registered in 2008.
At ABTA 2013 this week, Entropic will highlight its latest high-performance,
low-power silicon solutions for:
*ROBUST SATELLITE DELIVERY INTO & THROUGHOUT THE HOME. Entropic reliably
brings entertainment into the home with its end-to-end satellite
solutions. The Company's technology captures satellite signals and
distributes HD content into the home with its single-wire analog and
digital Channel Stacking Switch (CSS™) solutions. The Company also ensures
advanced, high-performance TV viewing experiences with its set-top box
(STB) HD MPEG system-on-a-chip (SoC) and MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax
Alliance) home networking silicon. Entropic will highlight how Latin
American satellite operators can lower the delivery cost and advance the
consumption of entertainment with its next-generation silicon solutions.
*RICH CABLE & TELCO/IPTV EXPERIENCES, EVERYWHERE. Entropic's open
standards-based STB SoC + industry-leading MoCA platform are inherently
efficient as they leverage the powerful ARM® architecture to provide
superior media delivery for today's STBs, IP-Clients and hybrid systems.
At ABTA, the Company will demonstrate the power and performance of its
latest chipsets that utilize the Comcast® IP-Client Reference Design Kit
(RDK); support innovative HTML5 applications; and leverage DLNA Commercial
Video Profile (CVP) functionality. The Company will also show how its
silicon reliably extends the wireless coverage of Latin American Pay-TV
content throughout the home with the latest generation MoCA 2.0 silicon.
"The Latin American Pay-TV market is exploding with opportunity as service
providers transition to digital TV, express greater interest in triple-play
services and face increasing competition from across Pay-TV service
providers," said Charlie Lesko, senior vice president, Global Sales, Entropic.
"Entropic is highly-familiar with the local markets as we already provide
media processing and connectivity solutions to service providers across the
region, making us an ideal silicon partner to deliver end-to-end solutions
that will help operators be more competitive and evolve the way content is
brought into, distributed and enjoyed throughout the home."
