Houston – Expanding its portfolio of eXpressDSP digital media software, Texas Instruments (TI) and Ittiam Systems today announced the availability of several audio and video codecs. The new offerings will be offered through TI's Authorized Software Providers (ASPs). The codecs include:
- H.264 Main Profile (MP) encode
- WMV9 MP encode
- MPEG-2 encode
- MPEG-4 Advanced Simple Profile encode/decode
- DivX decode
- MP3 encode
The new codecs are compliant with the new eXpressDSP Digital Media (xDM) standard, and TI has fully tested the software on its DaVinci platform.
The MP3 codec is available now; the other codecs will be rolled out in 2Q07. As is the case with other codecs and algorithms in TI's digital media software portfolio, developers can evaluate the codec at no charge and receive four free hours of support from the ASP of their choice. Several pricing options are available, providing a range of associated one-time upfront and royalty fees. Published pricing details are available at www.ti.com/digitalmediasoftwarepr.
