CE5300i, Media Server Reference Design (MSRD)
with Intel SDK & Evaluation Software

This MSRD is both a hardware and a software design kit for OEMs and system integrators allowing quickly development of Intel-based set-top boxes and media servers.

Intel has pre-integrated components such as

  • a media engine 
  • broadcast stacks 
  • virtualization
  • motion control technology

i.e. validation testing time is reduced and time-to-market is accelerated.

The MSRD is based on the Intel® Atom™ processor CE5300, a dual core Atom-based SOC that supports

  • hyperthreading
  • virtualization
  • an advanced 3D/2D graphics engine
  • integrated power management
  • a H.264 B-picture hardware encoder.


Intel is working with a number of companies to provide technologies to create advanced set-top boxes and media servers. The MSRD features Futarque’s DVB-T2/T/C broadcast and media sharing stacks, Videon Central’s aVia media engine, and includes Hillcrest Labs’ Freespace® Motion Engine™ software to enable a motion remote control.  Additionally, the hardware platform was designed by Prodrive.
