Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) is featuring SoundPix Inc.'s All-in-One JPEG sound capture and integration technology on its digital media processor for digital cameras.

According to the companies, end users who purchase cameras equipped with TI's digital media processor and SoundPix software are able to capture images, integrate voice annotations within them, and upload/transfer the resulting "sound pictures," or "soundpix," to their desktops for editing and sharing via email, conventional file sharing methods, or posting to the Web. One distinctive aspect of SoundPix's technology is that the sound is encoded directly into the JPEG file along with the image data, which eliminates the need to manage, transmit and assemble multiple files, SoundPix explained.

TI's digital media processor family of products are optimized for digital camera applications, leveraging a low-power TMS320C54x DSP core, an ARM RISC processor, plus video and imaging coprocessors to improve performance. The company believed that the flexibility and programmability of the digital media processors will enable camera manufacturers to expand the breadth of their portable imaging and multimedia products while reducing development costs.
