DirecTV picks Entropic MoCA-based silicon, software

Wednesday 9 January 2013 | 13:58 CET | News
DirecTV PanAmericana, a business unit of pay-TV provider DirecTV Latin America, has selected Entropic's Channel Stacking Switch and Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA)-based silicon and software to enhance the way content is delivered into and connected throughout the home. DirecTV PanAmericana will use Entropic's Channel Stacking Switch (CSS) single-cable wire infrastructure in low noise block (LNB) converters and multi-switches. The CSS technology enables multi-tuner STB, such as DVR devices, to deliver HD services to multiple rooms in the home. DirecTV PanAmericana will also deploy Entropic's MoCA silicon and software in its HD-DVR receiver and in its network adapters known as DECAs (DirecTV Ethernet-to-Coax Adapters). By deploying Entropic's MoCA technology, DirecTV PanAmericana subscribers may gain access to home networking services. DirecTV PanAmericana will roll-out new services based on Entropic's CSS and MoCA technologies throughout this year.
