Video Processing and Video Toolbox Capabilities Featured in New Version of SurfUP Triple–Play Media
Version 4.0 supports video transcoding, conferencing, streaming and recording

Surf announced the general availability of version 4.0 of SurfUP™, its line of open Universal Port solutions that combine a wide range of voice, video, fax, and modem conversion engines in various levels of software and hardware integration, ranging from DSP chip–level solutions to DSP–farm resource boards. The new version, which has already been deployed at several customer sites, features a wide range of video capabilities, including transcoding, conferencing, streaming, and recording. In addition, version 4.0 contains a video toolbox for enhanced video processing functions, such as resizing, frame rate change, background/foreground controls, and logo insertion.

The new version provides a completely integrated solution that runs all media types (voice, video, fax & modem) simultaneously on the same DSP (Texas Instruments’ TMS320C64x™ generation). The same DSP also supports UDP/IP, RTP, and H.223 (for 3G–324M), making the solution scalable and effective by eliminating Host–DSP bottlenecks. In addition, Surf provides an open DSP framework that allows telecom infrastructure manufacturers to integrate their own user–defined channel and incorporate ANSI–C algorithms in the DSP.

Surf’s approach is unique, since all other solutions separate voice and video and run them on different DSPs/sub–systems, or divide the processing between the host and the DSP. Running them together makes the solution more effective (cost, quality and performance–wise) since it enables dynamic (during run–time), modification of the channel to support voice now, and voice and video later.

Surf’s products are optimized for gateway applications and CTI/ messaging/ streaming/ recording/ conferencing applications. Voice and video streaming capabilities as well as voice and video mixing capabilities (including dominant speaker detection) are also supported. These solutions are provided on variety of platforms: boards for PCI and PTMC/AMC DSP farms as well as chip–level. In addition, Surf has cooperation agreements with cPCI and ATCA manufacturers to provide an integrated solution of Surf’s PTMC/AMC daughter cards riding on cPCI and ATCA carriers.

“This new release firmly positions Surf at the leading edge of media processing technology for telecom equipment manufacturers,” states Amir Zmora, VP Marketing and Product Management of Surf Communication Solutions. “The video capabilities and processing toolbox now available in SurfUP will allow our customers to expand their existing voice solutions to include video, and thereby capitalize on the industry’s fastest growing trend, without a major investment in infrastructure.”

“The high performance and flexibility of TI’s C64x™ DSP makes it the ideal choice for triple-play media processing applications,” said Cyril Clocher, DSP business development manager for Texas Instruments in EMEA. “It provides a powerful, programmable base for SurfUP’s advanced video capabilities, enhanced features and scalability. Surf has a strong expertise in hardware and software integration for media processing technology and we are delighted that they have chosen the C64x to help them bring their innovative and leading-edge products to market.”
