Intel Corp. on Monday introduced storage solutions based on the Intel Atom processor CE5300 series. The new low power system-on-chip (SoC) enables high definition (HD) video to be simultaneously watched on smartphones, tablets and other smart devices, in real time, while also shared with consumer devices such as a Smart TV.

The dual-core Intel Atom CE5300-series delivers simple application and I/O support, making it ideal for synchronizing and streaming video content without compromising power for the performance necessary to allow seamless I/O and media transcoding.

Storage solutions based on the Intel Atom CE5300 series allow consumers to easily set up all of their media in one place and avoid capacity limitations of mobile devices. They can use their storage system either as an iTunes server or DLNA (digital network living alliance) media server, and access that content from their mobile device of choice. Users can also simultaneously transcode 1080p video content to a smartphone, tablet, TV, ultrabook or other smart device. The media processor system intelligently adapts to the screen resolution for each of these devices.

For instance, high definition 1080p video can be converted to lower resolution 480p video to play on a smartphone (conserving network bandwidth and battery power) and, at the same time, to 720p video for displaying clearer pictures on a tablet. Content can also be streamed to a SmartTV or nearby HDMI-based video monitor. All the content on the storage device can also be accessed from outside the home network to allow immediate access.

"Streaming content across numerous mobile devices, not just from the cloud but locally, has become a common practice for today's consumers. New storage solutions based on the Intel Atom CE5300 series elevate this to a whole new level by making it simple to 'browse, click, and play'. The new SoC provides an excellent foundation for creating compelling entertainment experiences," said Bev Crair, general manager, of Intel's storage division.

Several companies are launching new Intel Atom-based NAS devices at CeBIT, including Asustor, Synology and Thecus with expected pricing to begin at $299.
