April 9, 2008 -- The High-Definition Audio-Video Network Alliance (HANA) announced that Pulse~LINK, Inc. has become both a promoter member and a member of the organization's board of directors.
Pulse~LINK is a fabless semiconductor company whose CWave 1394-Over-Coax solution is designed to distribute HD content securely over a home's existing coax cabling. The company was a founding member of HANA in 2005. HANA is a cross-industry alliance of member companies dedicated to providing consumers with the means to bring HD into their homes.
"HANA is pleased to welcome Pulse~LINK to its board as it has been a valuable contributor to our technical and marketing work groups since the beginning," comments Dr. Heemin Kwon, HANA's president. "All of our members have been instrumental in designing the HANA solution that uses a single connection, an easy-to-use interface, and a single remote to enable the sharing of HD content across A/V devices anywhere in the home. Additional support from Pulse~LINK will only improve the speed that HANA is able to turn its vision for a whole-home networking solution into reality. It's only a matter of time before consumers will have a simple and secure way to access their HD content from any device in their home."
"We have been keen supporters of the HANA mission since its founding, and we are ready to take the next step to help steer HANA as its moves from developing guidelines to helping companies get HANA products on the shelf," remarks Bruce Watkins, Pulse~LINK's president and COO. "Our CWave UWB 1394-Over-Coax technology supports the HANA home networking solution, and we look forward to increased collaboration with our fellow members."
