Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and ANT Ltd announced the availability of the new ANT Galio software on TI's TMS320DM642 digital media processor (DM642) for advanced video applications.

ANT's Galio provides TI with a highly dynamic browser-based content presentation and control solution to complement the advanced digital media capabilities of the DM642 platform. Running on TI's DSP-based DM642, Galio combines interactive content applications with feature-rich digital TV programming and services. W3C standards-based Galio presents and controls everything from local device set-up menus and controls, through to complex remote services such as Electronic Programming Guides (EPGs), Video on Demand (VoD) interfaces and dynamic news, information and communication applications, said the press release.

Using TI's solution allows manufacturers to use a wide range of advanced content technologies such as H.264, MPEG4, MPEG2 and Microsoft Windows Media Audio/Video Series 9 (WMV9) in their consumer electronics product applications. The DM642 also supports other software from ANT, including Fresco and Pureplay.

"Combining TI's high performance DSPs and their support for advanced software coding technologies with ANT's feature-rich, HTML-based Galio allows OEMs to get to market faster and to enhance both their products design and the end-user experience of their products," commented Arnaud Duclap, business development manager for TI's Video/Imaging DSP group in Europe. "It also allows them to quickly address the needs of operators by enabling additional, value-driven services over the existing bandwidth."
