Entropic, a provider of semiconductor products for the connected home, and Winstron NewWeb (WNC) have announced a new USB Powered Ethernet to Coax Adapter is ready to launch at DirecTV. 

The Entropic based USB bridge from WNC provides all of the functionality of previous DirecTV Ethernet over Coax Adapters in a small form factor. This new USB Powered adapter provides enough throughput to support Ultra HD/4K video and streaming media services to any DirecTV-ready TV, bringing the DirecTV entertainment experience directly to any television without requiring a separate set-top box. A DirecTV-ready TV has built in RVU technology and when combined with the USB MoCA Adapter, allows consumers to stream from the Genie server premium content and access DVR functionality without an additional box. 

The new MoCA USB bus-powered adapter will be available from DirecTV in mid-2015. The USB DECA will be demonstrated at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, taking place 6-9 January.
