V2IP moves beyond VoIP
Posted: 13-Nov-2004 [Source: Freescale]

[Freescale's video and voice over-IP (V2IP) platform based on the i.MX21 processor optimized for WiFi and wired devices expected to be commercially available in the first half of 2005.]

Munich, Germany -- Imagine calling a friend and seeing them on your slim WiFi over-IP handheld, then zooming-in for a better visual experience and starting a videoconference on demand. Now switch the conference to your TV set to share with a larger group of friends or colleagues in the room. This experience soon will become a reality for the rapidly increasing number of consumers with broadband at home or in the enterprise, thanks to the latest technology from Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. (NYSE:FSL).

Freescale Semiconductor is delivering a powerful video and voice over-IP (V2IP) solution to enable rapid development of devices supporting emerging multimedia services over the Internet Protocol. Freescale, Trinity Convergence, RADVISION and Metrowerks have tightly collaborated to design, port and optimize a complete V2IP solution for the Freescale i.MX21 multimedia applications processor using the Linux operating system.

Video and audio is processed, encoded, decoded and processed again based on the Freescale multimedia features portfolio. This includes H.263 and MPEG4 video, JPEG imaging, audio codecs, mirroring, zooming, rotation and more. The VeriCall Edge modular framework from Trinity Convergence provides voice processing for G.711, G.729, G.723 and AMR codecs, voice and video synchronization, SIP call control, and integrates the latest RADVISION market-proven H.323 v4 call control stack with a full suite of H.450 supplementary services that provides stable protocol management and efficient two-way communication over the Internet Protocol.

Freescale is delivering the V2IP solution based on the powerful i.MX21 multimedia applications processor featuring the video encode and decode hardware acceleration performance necessary for low-power, high-quality, real time videoconferencing. The i.MX21 30 frames-per-second CIF resolution provides a pleasing visual experience that has very few rivals in the low-power mobile market. The audio codecs optimized for i.MX21 provide great audio quality. A versatile Metrowerks Linux board support package includes support for the WiFi link, convenient TV-output and many other features optimized for mobile videoconferencing.

"With this platform, our customers can create and launch a new V2IP wired or wireless device in just a few months," said Thierry Cammal, general manager of the Wireless and Mobile System Group in Europe. "Lead customers and partners who are teaming up with Freescale and adopting this platform are in a good position to grab strong market share in this fast-growing market."

Platform Availability The beta release of the V2IP platform is available for lead customers and partners. Interoperability testing (IOT) is due to be completed before end of the year and the first customer device based on the V2IP platform is expected to be commercially available in the first half of 2005.
