The article reports that Entone Technologies Inc. has launched an IP gateway that delivers multiple video service streams via traditional home coaxial cables. Competing with stand-alone IP-based set-tops, which have to be deployed to each TV in the home, the Entone Hydra gateway can convert video for up to six televisions, but decode only three streams simultaneously, notes Entone CEO Steve McKay. The box also supports software- and hardware-based conditional access systems, and ADSL2-H and Ethernet network interfaces. The company did not disclose specific pricing, but said the Hydra sells for north of 250 dollar, but under 400 dollar, for a three-TV set-up.
