TOKYO -- Aug. 27, 2007
-- Sentivision announced today a highly optimized H.264/AVC baseline profile encoder and decoder that leverages the most recent Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) digital signal processors (DSPs) based on DaVinci(TM) technology, which are optimized for video surveillance and infrastructure applications.
Sentivision software solutions offer high quality, multi-channel, and low- latency features required in surveillance and infrastructure systems.
Sentivision leverages TI's high performance TMS320DM647 and TMS320DM648 DSPs to optimize the encoding software for most optimal speed-to-quality ratio. Sentivision's H.264/AVC codec delivers significantly better quality at given bandwidth in comparison to other market solutions.
The unrivalled H.264 encoding speed decreases encoding-related CPU loads and enables analytic software to run in parallel to the encoding process, which increasingly attracts attention in contemporary surveillance applications.
Jan Rychter, Sentivision's Chief Technical Officer said, "Our past work and extensive experience with H.264 encoding and decoding solutions, coupled with the unparalleled performance and flexibility of TI's DM647 and DM648 DSPs allows us to address the most demanding surveillance, infrastructure and videoconferencing markets, where multiple channels per chip or high video quality are required."
"Surveillance and infrastructure applications are becoming more complex, and DSPs with a higher level of programmability and performance are needed to meet the intense video processing and video channel requirements of tomorrow's advanced systems," said Yvonne Lee, DSP video surveillance solutions marketing manager, TI. "TI is excited about the H.264/AVC baseline profiler Sentivision has accomplished using the silicon, tools, software and support provided by TI's DaVinci technology."
Sentivision has been continuously supplying customers with advanced video coding products available with TI's DaVinci processors. The company plans to continue this trend adopting their software products to the DM647 and DM648 DSPs with special emphasis on surveillance and security applications, enabling multi-stream H.264 encode to reduce overall system costs.
As a member of TI DSP Third Party Network, Sentivision consistently leverages the latest TI technologies to deliver high quality, robust, reliable and cutting-edge video processing solutions.
