Yesterday we announced that our client, CopperGate Communications, and their partner, Ucentric Systems announced a joint Internet Protocol (IP) network solution for delivering whole-home entertainment applications using existing coaxial cable and phone lines. CopperGate’s CopperStream™ technology is being integrated with Ucentric’s Whole-Home Media™ Software Suite to enable a highly reliable IP network capable of distributing high-definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) broadcast quality video sessions.
What this basically means is that telco and satellite service providers will be able to significantly cut consumer premises equipment and installation costs while increasing entertainment service offerings. This will be demonstrated at the upcoming C.E.S. 2005 in Las Vegas, January 6-9.
