LONDON -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solution is powering the world's first hybrid PowerPlug set-top box (STB), the DCP5205 from EKT (Eagle Kingdom Technologies), a leading supplier of advanced STB solutions. The new DCP5205 leverages Entropic's low power design SoC and plugs directly into the main power socket eliminating the need for a separate power adapter commonly required in today's hybrid STBs.

Many global operators are looking for smaller form factor STB solutions that are virtually "invisible" in connecting the cable. With the DCP5205, EKT has designed the full functionality of a STB into a plug socket. The new device is small enough to fit behind a flat panel TV set, and offers an optimal user experience that boasts built in Wi-Fi, RF4CE remote reception and retains support for broadcast quality conditional access security (CAS).

"We believe our new DCP5205 Hybrid PowerPlug STB is a game changing solution that will enable operators to deliver all the functionality and interactive TV experiences subscribers expect from their STB today, but in an exciting new form factor," said Richard Smith, CEO of EKT.

"In working with Entropic, we collectively sought to develop a STB solution that focused on low power, high performance and operator-class security."

The DCP5205 is a high performance hybrid STB solution and uses Entropic's ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-A9 CPU-based SoC with IP-STB features, integrated multi-tuner cable reception, advanced security and DRM protection for operators' premium content and application services.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
