DirecTV tech chief joins MoCA board

US DTH pay TV provider DirecTV’s vice-president, technology and ventures John Norin has joined the board of the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA).

DirecTV is a promoter member of MoCA, which promotes an open standard for the delivery of in-home connectivity over coax. The latest addition to MoCA’s board follows that of Intel’s Jim Crammond last week.

“MoCA technology is and will continue to be a critical element of our whole home DVR expansion throughout our footprint,” said Norin. “We look forward to helping the organisation in its mission of becoming a worldwide standard.”
