Ucentric, Entropic Team Up


Ucentric Systems LLC and Entropic Communications Inc. announced that they are teaming up to deliver a whole-home digital-entertainment-networking package using Internet protocol in the home.

Entropic will combine its silicon chip sets with Ucentric's whole-home software platform, which will allow multiple HD and standard-definition sessions of digital-video-recorder functionality. It will also allow consumers to share personal media across in-home devices using Entropic's 270-megabit connections.

The two companies will showcase the joint technology at next month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
