Panasonic, Entropic demo MoCA tech
Panasonic and chipmaker Entropic Communications said Tokyo was the site of a successful trial of multimedia-over-coax technology.
Panasonic and Kansai-Cable Net Group said they were able to distribute content at greater than 150 Mbps over an apartment building's existing coaxial network using Entropic's C.LINK-270 chipset.
Entropic, which hopes to embed its technology within set-tops, DVRs, PCs and other consumer electronic devices, believes its platform can network video and other bandwidth-intensive content at speeds as high as 270 Mbps.
Panasonic said it is considering using Entropic's technology for MDU and in-home distribution products.
Entropic is also a founding member of the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), an organization formed in January to standardize the distribution of media over coax cabling.
