BEIJING (China Content Broadcasting Network Exhibition – Hall: 3; Booth # 3403), March 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, and Telepath Technologies Co., Ltd., a fabless integrated circuit (IC) solution provider in the multimedia broadcasting market, announced today the first Audio Video Coding Standard (AVS+) High Definition (HD) set-top box (STB) platform for China Satellite, Cable/IP and Terrestrial markets The platform, integrated with the latest STB system-on-a-chip (SoC) from Entropic, offers a high performance, cost-optimized solution that supports AVS-P16 (AVS+) and includes advanced security components to ensure enhanced TV viewing experiences.

AVS is a leading video compression standard in China and performs comparably to contemporary standards, such as Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and H.264, a variation of the MPEG-4 standard noted for its high quality and high efficiency. An HD format video compression solution, AVS+ raises the bar for China's video coding standards and is a key future requirement for set-top box solutions addressing the China Direct-to-Home (DTH) market.

Entropic is the first semiconductor company to provide an AVS+-supported product, with its latest SoC, the EN7100. The EN7100 uses a single-core ARM® Cortex™- A9 processor with up to 2500 DMIPS, a 2D graphics engine and advanced security features; capable of vast computation and video processing capabilities. Further, it provides unprecedented price performance, delivers up to 1GHz operation in an "LP" low-power process node for low power consumption and offers a DVB-C (Digital Video Broadcast - Cable) demodulator inside to seamlessly address the growing digital cable television market in China.

Telepath provides a high performance low power ABS-S demodulator to enable the deployment of China DTH. The latest SoC, TP5001, is based on 55nm advanced process. It provides the most stable receiving capability to meet the requirement of remote area application.
