[Aricent announces development of high-def (720p) codecs for TI's OMAP3430 processors for mobile phones.]

Barcelona -- Aricent, a full-service, full-spectrum communications software company, announced that it has developed high-definition video and audio encoders and decoders (codecs) for Texas Instruments' OMAP3430 processor-based mobile phones. To be demonstrated for the first time today at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Aricent's high-definition software enables a new class of applications for the mobile consumer. The consumer will be able to use their mobile phone as a HD quality player and download high resolution HD content (720p) on their phone for playback on an HDTV screen or use the mobile phone as a DVD-quality camcorder recording in high resolution (720p). By decoding 720p MPEG-4 Simple Profile video in real-time, Aricent has become one of the first companies to offer DVD-quality record and playback capabilities for a range of mobile devices such as mobile handsets, portable media players and automotive entertainment systems.

Aricent's multimedia codecs were designed specifically for TI's OMAP3430 processor, the latest in a line of mobile platforms that combine PC- and consumer entertainment system-comparable performance with low power consumption. The Aricent MPEG4-SP 720p video and AAC audio codecs leverage the OMAP3430 processor capabilities (IVA(tm) 2.2 hardware accelerator and ARM(r) CortexTM-A8 superscalar microprocessor core) to achieve encoding and decoding of video streams at unprecedented resolutions. Aricent's multimedia software on the OMAP3430 processor is designed for multiple mobile platforms like Linux, Symbian and Windows Mobile.

"The next generation of mobile phones will support multimedia features previously available only with high-end consumer electronics," said Markus Tremmel, worldwide wireless ecosystem manager Texas Instruments. "Using the processing power of the OMAP3430 processor, for the first time companies like Aricent are delivering better-than DVD-quality record and playback capabilities for mobile handsets."

"The Aricent high-definition codecs for the OMAP3430 processor will drive a completely new class of mobile multimedia experience," said Sajal Gupta, head of products, Aricent. "This software will allow consumers to record and play high-definition 720p video from their mobile phone, automotive entertainment system or personal media player."

The Aricent high-definition multimedia software will be on public demonstration at the Texas Instruments stand (Hall 8, A84) at Mobile World Congress from 13-14 February 2008, and by appointment at the Aricent stand (Hall 2, B25) for the remainder of the show.

Aricent is a member of TI's OMAP(tm) Developer Network, a group of leading software developers porting advanced applications to TI's high performance, power-efficient OMAP processors. Handset manufacturers adopting OMAP devices enjoy the rapid deployment of compelling wireless applications - including streaming audio and video, multimedia messaging, gaming, security, speech recognition, location based services and mobile commerce - across all leading operating systems. Systems level integration services are also provided worldwide by independent OMAP Technology Centers. The OMAP platform has been selected by leading manufacturers, such as Nokia, Palm, NEC, Fujitsu, LG Electronics, Hewlett-Packard, HTC and many more, for their 2.5 and 3G wireless devices.
