MoCA enabled, NAS reference design
Entropic and ViXS Systems have joined to develop MoCA enabled,
network attached storage reference design that provides
premium content capture, storage and sharing. This NAS device
will be demonstrated this week during the International
Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 11-15,
at booth 5.B29.
The NAS leverages the capabilities of ViXS video processing
to deliver on-the-fly HD to HD and MPEG 2 HD to H.264 AVC
HD transcoded video over Entropic's c.LINK MoCA 1.1 network
to deliver a high-quality experience.
"Home entertainment networking is continuing to evolve
and we are pleased to be partnered with Entropic, a pioneer
in home networking, as we build on our respective technologies
to be at the forefront of that evolution," said Sally
Daub, CEO and president, ViXS Systems Inc. "By combining
Entropic's proven MoCA solution with our advanced video
processing technology, we are able to deliver a powerful,
robust, and cost-effective solution to the consumer electronic
market, enabling high-definition video recording capabilities
as well as the sharing of both personal and premium content
throughout the home over existing Coax cables."
"We are excited to be working with ViXS, a clear leader
in providing world-class multimedia SoCs and software solutions
for processing, managing, securing and seamlessly distributing
high-quality video and audio among devices of any class
and size," said Patrick Henry, CEO, Entropic Communications.
