Entropic has partnered with Wistron NeWeb on a USB-powered Ethernet-to-coax adapter with MoCA, for DIRECTV.

The Entropic-based USB bridge from WNC provides the functionality of previous DIRECTV adapters in a smaller form factor, with enough throughput to support Ultra HD/4K video and streaming media services to DIRECTV-ready TVs. DIRECTV-ready TVs with built-in RVU technology, when combined with the USB MoCA adapter, allows consumers to stream from the Genie server premium content and gain DVR functionality without the need for an additional set-top box.

"As the industry evolves to 4K UHD, it is essential to have key partners developing solutions together that allow further proliferation of DIRECTV-ready TVs in the market," said Henry Derovanessian, senior vice president of Consumer Premise Engineering at the satellite provider.

"This latest USB MoCA Adapter from Entropic and WNC is a great example of an advanced solution that offers an easy and economical way to network DIRECTV-ready televisions in a home."
