Company Background:

Founded in March 1997 and located in Milpitas, Calif., EnReach is a global provider of digital video entertainment systems for broadband IP networks. EnReach's success is built on developing complete broadband-ready entertainment systems that enable operators to deliver revenue-generating services such as: VOD, TV over IP, DVR, Internet and E-mail. EnReach's systems help operators expand in-room/residential offerings, create new revenue sources and monetize IP-based broadband connectivity through easy-to-use enhanced television services.

With broadband access penetration expected to reach new heights in the coming years, many analysts predict entertainment gateway services will be the new entertainment paradigm in the home.
