Latest Media Processing Packages

Surf Rolls Out Video Streaming Enhancements and New Codec for Its Latest Media Processing Packages

(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
Surf Communication Solutions has announced the availability of version
5.0 of SurfWare- Media, its multimedia processing solution that
combines a wide range of audio, video, fax, and modem conversion

SurfWare-Media is supplied with Surf's AMC and PCI Express resource
boards, PTMC DSP farm board, PCI card, and DSP chip-level solutions. It
defines a new generation of Surf's convergence technologies, featuring
support for H.264, iLBC, and WMV9/WMA (decoders only) in addition to
the wide range of codecs and processing capabilities supported
previously by SurfUP.

Enhancements, such as a TrueType font text overlay, speech time
scaling, and network smoothing, provide optimized video functionality
and performance. The new version specifically addresses the advanced
requirements of a wide range of IMS-ready carrier-grade and enterprise
telecom infrastructure equipment, such as MRF, media servers, media
gateways, session border controllers, as well as iPBX, CTI and other
messaging, streaming, recording and conferencing applications.

SurfWare-Media provides a completely integrated media processing
solution, which runs audio/voice, video, fax and modem media as well as
the 3G-324M protocol simultaneously on a single DSP, Texas Instruments'
TMS320C64x DSP generation. In addition, Surf provides an open DSP
framework that allows telecom infrastructure manufacturers to integrate
their own user-defined channel and incorporate ANSI-C algorithms in the

Surf's unique approach of running all media processing-related tasks on
a single DSP is different from other solutions, which separate audio
and video processing and run them on different DSPs/sub-systems, or
divide the processing between the Host and the DSP. Running audio and
video together provides a quality solution with better performance and
reduced costs, since it enables dynamic modification of the channel
during run-time to support audio applications now and audio plus video
later, the company noted in a release.
