SEOUL, SouthKorea and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At this
month's IBC exhibition in Amsterdam, Alticast, a worldwide leader in open
standards based software for video service delivery and Entropic (NASDAQ:
ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, will
demonstrate Reference Design Kit (RDK) and RDK set-top box solutions. The IBC
demonstrations, which take place September 13-17, in the Alticast booth (Hall
1, F36) and the Entropic Meeting Suite (Hall 13, Suite G106/G107), will
showcase Alticast's proven RDK integration expertise on Entropic's powerful
system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform – to offer more competitive RDK-based IP
set-top box (IP-STB) solutions for global Pay-TV operators.

Alticast is an expert RDK system integrator working with major US, European
and Latin American operators to leverage RDK as part of the transition to IP.
The integration between Entropic and Alticast expands the breadth of RDK SoC
providers, giving operators new options when selecting their STB solution.
Alticast combines standard RDK or extended RDK for DVB Networks with
Alticast's Application Framework providing operators the flexibility to
implement specific content delivery and business solutions.

Entropic was one of the first RDK licensees and offers both single-core ARM®
Cortex™-A9 (EN7584) and dual-core Cortex-A9 (EN7588) processors bundled with
its leading Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) connectivity solution. With
an Entropic RDK SoC solution, Pay-TV operators can deploy a range of
cost-effective MoCA-enabled IP-Client devices that will run native and
cloud-based applications.

"The Entropic and Alticast collaboration brings together two market-leading
innovators offering operators versatility when implementing RDK. We welcomed
the opportunity to work with Entropic allowing us to expand our RDK
footprint," stated Thomas Jung, CMO, Alticast, Corp.

Roger Gregory, Entropic's vice president of Marketing added, "Alticast's
experience with RDK allowed quick integration with the Entropic STB SoC and
MoCA platform. The integrated solution allows operators to accelerate their
move to new IP-based STB solutions, which is critical in the evolution from
traditional broadcast to gateway/client architectures."
