Stocks in this article: ENTR

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBC2012, Entropic Meeting Suite G106/107 -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced today Inverto Digital Labs, a leader in broadcast reception and streaming products and a major player in the Low Noise Block (LNB) converters is deploying Entropic's third-generation Channel Stacking Switch (CSS) silicon, the EN5288, in Inverto's latest LNB solution for the Free-to-Air (FTA) and Pay-TV operator markets. The first product to market with Entropic's EN5288, the Inverto LNB allows consumers to upgrade and extend existing satellite installations, for example, adding a new receiver in a different room or replacing a standard receiver with a dual-tuner Personal Video Recorder (PVR), without the need to run additional in-home cabling.

Recognized for its Unicableā„¢ LNB product line, Inverto uses the Entropic technology to deliver simultaneous streams of satellite broadcast, including thousands of video- and audio programs, into consumers' homes over a single cable distribution. Compliant to the industry standard CENELEC prEN50494, the LNB facilitates the delivery of broadcast programming to a maximum of four set-top boxes (STBs) over a single coaxial cable, and eliminates the numerous coaxial cables that were previously required to connect satellite PVRs and other high-end STBs to the satellite dish.

"With our latest Unicable product enabled by Entropic, Inverto continues its long history of providing world-class, industry leading products for DBS operators and the horizontal markets," said Gil Laifer, senior director of Products, Inverto Digital Labs. "Entropic continues to deliver innovations in CSS products which are instrumental to modern deployments of digital TV and match Inverto's strategy to enable highest quality broadcast services across the home by easy-to-use, standard, and cost-effective means."

"The demand for unicable LNB solutions continues to grow throughout Europe and we are excited to see our latest generation CSS technology being integrated into Inverto's Unicable line of products," said Al Servati, vice president of Marketing, Connectivity Products Group, Entropic Communications. "Our EN5288 addresses Inverto's single-family home requirements and offers a reduced overall system cost by ensuring lowest bill of material component count, smallest package size and increased power-efficiency."
