|Entropic Communications Helps Gamers 'Level Up' Their Consoles With Ultra-Fast Network Performance|
SAN DIEGO, Jun 5, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, and the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA(R)) will showcase how MoCA-based network adapters effectively 'level up' gamers' consoles by minimizing latency and maximizing throughput to ensure smooth gameplay and media streaming at the Showstoppers(R) co-located press event at E3, the world's premier tradeshow for the videogame and entertainment industries. Showstoppers at E3 is recognized as the only independent press event for journalists, bloggers, industry analysts and venture capitalists, and takes place June 5, 2012, in Los Angeles.
The modern gaming console provides several entertainment options -- however if the throughput isn't there -- the overall user experience will suffer. At Showstoppers, Entropic and MoCA will demonstrate how gamers can unlock a new level of performance -- whether finding more low ping servers or enabling a lag-free experience -- with a variety of MoCA adapters that essentially upgrade the underlying connected home network. MoCA adapters transform existing in-home coax cabling to a network with Ethernet speed and reliability.
MoCA is the universal standard for home entertainment networking and can support multiple streams of HD video content while delivering up to 175 Mbps net throughput at less than 4.5ms of average network latency. MoCA has more than 100 certified products, which can give gamers:
-- Low latency, lag-free, Internet gaming across any platform -- HD-quality entertainment for over-the-top video streaming services -- Maximized high-speed broadband access from the cloud
