Entone Technologies has launched a slate of HD consumer premise equipment (CPE) for IPTV service providers. Entone's new product family builds on the company's patent-pending Hydra IP video gateway design.

The new products are:
* The Hydra HD - an IP video gateway that provides three streams of fully interactive IPTV services and reuses existing coax networks for video redistribution;
* Magi HD - an IPTV receiver that supports IP over Ethernet, IP over coax, QAM and ATSC delivery for HD and standard-definition programming; and
* Amulet HD - a compact and cost-effective single stream IPTV receiver.

The Hydra and Magi provide an integrated HomePNA 3.0 interface for high-speed IP service over existing in-home coax and phone lines. They also include an integrated ATSC tuner for receiving over-the-air broadcasts. The Magi includes a built-in QAM tuner to decode signals from cable TV providers.

All three support both SD and HD, and support MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 (H.264), and VC-1. Entone's HD CPE products will be compatible with middleware from Microsoft TV, Minerva, and Myrio, as well as digital rights management software from Irdeto, Latens, NDS, Verimatrix, and Widevine.
