MILPITAS, Calif. -- Sigma Designs® (NASDAQ: SIGM - News), a worldwide leader in connected media platforms, today unveiled the Sigma Designs CG2210, a new HomePlug AV chipset that delivers HD quality video across electrical wiring inside the home. This home video networking solution works over 70% more outlets and runs 31% faster over surge protectors versus competitors -- all while adhering to the stringent new EuP 2013 energy conservation guidelines. The new chipset works faster than other HomePlug AV solutions and WiFi when handling small packets -- giving it the lowest latency. This is perfect for improving the performance of Internet gaming. The CG2210 HomePlug AV platform also makes it easy and affordable to support TR-069 by eliminating the need for an expensive external CPU.

The CG2210 platform has been architected to deliver real-world performance leadership. The CG2210 platform includes Sigma's patented and award-winning ClearPath technology ensuring the new CG2210 is the most stable and reliable HomePlug AV solution on the market. Sigma Designs reduced the chipset's footprint and power consumption while increasing performance 15% over the previous generation. In addition, this new product is fully interoperable with the IEEE's newly approved 1901 Draft Standard and future products designed to the standard.

"Sigma is pushing powerline reliability and performance to a new level," stated Gabi Hilevitz, vice president and general manager, Home Connectivity Group at Sigma Designs, Inc. "Now, with the CG2210, service providers can more reliably deliver HD quality IPTV traffic to virtually any outlet in the home.
