BEAVERTON, Ore. and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The RVU Alliance today announced the election of Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, to its Board of Directors, effective immediately.

A member of the RVU Alliance, Entropic has actively supported the marketing and technical activities of the Alliance since its inception in August 2009, and has long-standing partnerships across the RVU Alliance ecosystem. As the only pure-play platform semiconductor company in connected home entertainment, Entropic's set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) and connectivity (MoCA®, Broadband Access and single-wire direct broadcast satellite outdoor unit) solutions enable the Company to have a deep understanding of the RVU Alliance's target Pay-TV and supplier markets.

"We are pleased to welcome Entropic and Dr. Monk to the RVU Alliance Board of Directors," said Henry Derovanessian, president of the RVU Alliance and senior vice president at DIRECTV. "Dr. Monk's extensive board experience will help provide valuable guidance to drive RVU forward as a key enabling technology to allow consumers the same user experience at every TV in the home.""Today's consumer wants to reliably and securely watch or access pre-recorded, live, premium or personal content anywhere in the home across any device," said Dr. Monk. "We feel both RVU and Entropic can benefit greatly from the higher level of strategic engagement at the board level. I am honored to represent Entropic on the RVU Alliance Board of Directors as we advance the RVU standard to meet the new video delivery demands required by the convergence of broadcast and broadband networks."
