SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wi3, Inc. is a digital networking products manufacturer offering a single-gang box slip sleeve MoCA technology based device. Wi3's membership will help bring the numerous benefits of MoCA® technology to custom installers and service providers desiring a more streamlined, in-wall Ethernet to coax adapter solution.

Pervasive in-home connectivity is the key for enabling new entertainment services. While the networked home is a blend of connected media and technologies delivering voice, data and video/entertainment, the unifying protocol is IP. MoCA technology is IP over coax.  For service providers and installers specifying IPTV solutions, MoCA technology provides seamless IP-based connection to HDTVs, game consoles and PC to TV connections, for instance. MoCA technology also provides the connection without interfering with existing technologies or services already in use.

"Delivery of multiple media signals over existing coax networks in the home makes sense in retrofit, multiple dwelling units, and even new construction," said Bill Thompson, CEO of Wi3, Inc. "We are working to change the face of home networking and facilitate the growth of IPTV.  Joining MoCA reinforces our commitment to using the best technology specifications and a standard for ensuring the home entertainment experience is not just good but great."

"Wi3 has developed a complete in home IPTV solution using the MoCA standard as the core transport technology in their product design.  System installers, custom integrators and ultimately consumers will benefit from the ease of design and installation providing a robust experience and IPTV presence," said Charles Cerino, MoCA president.
