TORONTO, July 18, 2013 /CNW/ - ViXS Systems Inc. (TSX: VXS) today
announced that the ViXS XCode 4210, a powerful System-on-Chip (SoC) for consumer media devices, has
been selected by Sony for its newly launched Personal Content Station
LLS-201 (PCS) product. The XCode 4210 provides superlative media
processing in a low power and cost effective package, allowing the PCS
to deliver unique applications to consumers in an easy-to-use manner.
By developing their product around the XCode 4210, Sony was able to
build a consumer product with features and functions beyond what is
currently available on the market today.
The Sony PCS LLS-201 is a centralized media hub for the home, with a
massive 1 Terabyte of storage to hold all of the content that matters
for a household. By taking advantage of the high-performance
processing engine of the XCode 4210, the LLS-201 creates a unique
One-Touch feature that allows consumers to quickly and easily store and
retrieve content from their personal entertainment devices such as
cameras, camcorders, smart phones and tablets by simply placing the
device on top of the LLS-201. In addition, ViXS' transcoding technology
in the XCode 4210 converts media in real-time to a format that the
LLS-201 can stream to multiple remote devices such as smart phones and
"ViXS is proud to have partnered with Sony to create the highly
innovative Personal Content Station," said Perry Chappell, Vice
President Worldwide Sales, ViXS Systems Inc. "Taking full advantage of
the flexibility and power of the XCode product line, the PCS provides
consumers with a personal media solution that spans the diverse range
of devices and locations that today's digital household requires."
