HOUSTON and BANGALORE, INDIA - Meeting the needs of video telephony developers, Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) and Ittiam Systems today announced Ittiam's complete IP video phone solution built on TI's DaVinci(tm) technology-based TMS320DM6446 processor. The platform lets OEM and ODM customers quickly develop and bring to market a variety of end solutions.

DaVinci technology is designed to enable innovation and performance in multi-media systems across a variety of end user applications. It is optimised for digital video systems and includes digital signal processor (DSP) based SoCs, accelerators, frameworks and development tools.

Leveraging the performance of DaVinci technology, Ittiam's offering, the IPVP6446, provides the latest in video compression technology and delivers video over IP communication with high quality multi-way call capability for standalone applications. Additionally the solution can be integrated into other embedded applications such as IP set top boxes, transforming a typical streaming media device into a communication hub.

IPVP6446 is an integrated software solution utilizing TI's complete DaVinci technology offering, including the software architecture, which consists of a Linux platform support package and interprocessor communications. This is accompanied by Ittiam's application specific reference platform built on the TMS320DM6446 DaVinci-based processor. The media engine delivers H.264-based video coding to achieve high quality visual communication in peer-to-peer and multi-way call scenarios, ensuring an enjoyable end user experience.

Advanced video processing is complemented by a wide range of speech codecs; acoustic echo canceller for hands free operation and associated telephony and signalling functions. An adaptive jitter buffer provides enhanced quality under adverse network conditions. In addition, the phone adapts video bit-rate depending on bandwidth. It also provides manual adjustment of video frame-rate or bit rate and enables self view or picture-in-picture mode dynamically during a call. It supports SIP and offers a framework integrating the media engine, media-controller, call-controller and user-interface manager.
