India's Leading Cable Operator, InCablenet, Deploys Entropic's Proven Set-Top Box System-on-a-Chip Technology to Rapidly Embrace 'Analog Sunset' Requirements By Globenewswire

NEW DELHI, India, Jan. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) technology, the CX2448x, has been deployed by India's leading cable multi-system operator (MSO), InCablenet. By deploying Entropic's STB SoC, InCablenet can enable advanced digital broadcast and broadband services to the 8.5 million cable-connected TV homes they serve across India.



Fulfilling the Digitization Roadmap with Entropic



Termed 'analog sunset,' India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) publicly announced the complete switchover from analog to digitized signals must occur countrywide by December 2014. Additionally, the mandate states that each TV set in the home, rather than each home itself, must now have a digital STB.


InCablenet turned to Entropic's CX2448x as an affordable STB SoC solution to meet these digitization mandates. By deploying Entropic-based Novabase STBs, InCablenet gains access to a state-of-the-art solution with advanced features such as DVR capability that will give them a competitive edge throughout the digitization transition.
