Leading IPTV Manufacturer
Enhances Set-Top Box Offering with Established Multimedia Home
Networking Standard for In-Home Distribution of IPTV
Tel Aviv, Israel & Newark, CA -- CopperGate Communications Ltd.
today announced that Entone Technologies Inc. has selected
CopperGate's CG3010 chipset as a key component providing the home
entertainment data networking features of Entone's high-definition
(HD) MPEG-4 set-top boxes. Entone set-top boxes with embedded
CopperGate chips will enable multi-room video and content sharing
without the need for additional cabling.
|"HomePNA 3 technology
is rapidly becoming a standard feature of IP set-top boxes and
gateway products," said Mark Evensen, VP of Product Development for
Entone. "The capabilities provided by CopperGate's CopperStream(TM)
chipset enable us to develop high performance IPTV products that
exceed our customer's performance and feature requirements while
meeting the cost targets."
Coppergate's CopperStream chipsets, used in a variety of products
such as set-top boxes, broadband residential gateways and ONTs from
leading manufacturers, are the first to comply with the ITU G.9954 (HomePNA
3) home networking standard. CopperStream enables high speed
multimedia home networking of IP data over both coaxial cable and
phone wires with guaranteed QoS. HomePNA 3 technology is being
deployed today by AT&T and other major telcos for the in-home
distribution of triple play services.
"We are excited that Entone has chosen to add HomePNA 3 capability
to this product line," said CopperGate's CEO Gabi Hilevitz. "Entone
is a leading vendor of IPTV and broadband equipment, and we expect
to see deployment of its HomePNA 3 enabled products worldwide."
