Supports more than 20 video and voice codecs and packet protocols for wireline, wideband code-division multiple access
Mindspeed said that it has has doubled the performance and density of its Comcerto media processing SoC system, while adding key media-processing capabilities.
The company said that the Comcerto 5000 series video and voice convergence processor extends the company’s flexible and scalable carrier-class voice processing platform, while enabling cable and network operators to better support demand for mobile video-based applications and services including videoconferencing, multimedia messaging service (MMS) and ad insertion.
According to Mindspeed, the M85000 device combines high-performance, low-power digital signal processing (DSP) technology with flexible packet processing, and includes hardware accelerators for tasks such as video processing and encryption.
The company claims that the Comcerto 5000 software suite will support more than 20 video and voice codecs and packet protocols for wireline, wideband code-division multiple access, CDMA, Packetcable and Wideband/HD voice in a single software image.
The new offering also supports H.263, H.264 and MPEG2/4 encode/decode functions, for video trans-rate, trans-size and trans-code applications. Packet-to-TDM and Packet-to-Packet trans-coding operations are simultaneously supported for both voice and video streams.
Additional feature support includes Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) encryption, Voice Quality Enhancement, Voice Quality Measurement (RTCP-XR), Echo Cancellation, T.38 fax relay, Announcement Serving, Lawful Interception (CALEA) and more.
Kurt Michel, marketing director of carrier media processing for Mindspeed’s multiservice access business unit, said: “Our new, flagship Comcerto 5000 processor has been architected with the needs of the world’s leading telecommunications carriers, cable and mobile network operators and other service providers in mind.
“Developers of next-generation multi-service platforms now have a comprehensive SoC solution that sets the industry benchmark for converged, carrier-class media communications processing, while also speeding time to market and reducing system cost.”
