Entropic Communications Inc. and ViXS Systems Inc. are developing an advanced HD Network Attached Storage (NAS) reference design that enables premium content capture, storage and sharing over a MoCA home network.

The MoCA-enabled NAS reference design will serve as a blueprint for consumer electronic and service provider OEMs to design a high-performance, feature-rich, cost-effective NAS. The NAS showcases Entropic's third-generation, MoCA 1.1 EN2510 single-chip, solution and ViXS' XCode 3290, an advanced DLNA-compliant video processing SoC. The NAS fully 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 field-proven, c.LINK MoCA 1.1 network to deliver a high-quality entertainment 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."

"ViXS' selection of the EN2510 chipset further validates the maturity of our MoCA solution for devices that seek to deliver bandwidth-intensive multimedia applications and services," said Patrick Henry, Entropic CEO.
