Entropic to Address System-on-a-Chip HEVC Compression Solutions at the Advanced Television Roundtable



Entropic to Address System-on-a-Chip HEVC Compression Solutions at the
Advanced Television Roundtable

Company's Vice President of Sales for Europe, Middle East and India to Provide
Insight on How Advancements in Compression Technology Enable the Delivery of
High-Quality Entertainment to Multiple Screens in the Home

LONDON, Sept. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world
leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its
participation on the Advanced Television Roundtable titled 'HEVC
(High-Efficiency Video Codec) and 4K in a Multiscreen World.' The half-day
event in London builds on the excitement and focus on HEVC/4K technologies at
the recent IBC 2013 Exhibition earlier this month.

Offering the silicon perspective, Entropic's Vice President of Sales for
Europe, Middle East and India, Noel McKenna, will discuss how HEVC-enabled
silicon solutions can improve performance for UltraHD set-top boxes (STB) and
other connected home multiscreen devices. The shift to 4K, which allows
broadcasters to transmit a signal that is approximately four times the
resolution of 1080p, requires new compression technology, such as HEVC, to be
included in next-generation STB chipset solutions. With HEVC-enabled chipsets,
Pay-TV operators can leverage HEVC's compression advancements to lower
bandwidth demands yet still deliver more content without sacrificing picture
quality. Additionally, HEVC-chipsets deliver higher-quality video without
adding extra costs associated with the higher bandwidth demands of 4K.

"As we saw at IBC 2013, there is strong global market interest and enthusiasm
for 4K, which will require new consumer electronics devices that support
high-quality HEVC playback," said Noel McKenna. "Advanced Television's panel
is timely and presents an opportunity to show how silicon providers, as well
as others in the connected home value-chain, can work together to deliver 4K
content to UltraHD TVs in the home – in both cost- and bandwidth-efficient
delivery methods."

The 'HEVC and 4K in a Multiscreen World' panel will be a taped session on
Friday, September 27, 2013, and will air online via the Advanced Television
website. Panel highlights will also be captured in the January/February 2014
edition of Euromedia, which will be distributed at CSTB Moscow, CabSat Dubai
and Cable Congress.
