Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has joined with software providers ANT and Orca Interactive to facilitate the interoperability of low-risk solutions that will hasten the design cycle of IP set-top-box products and services. The move will enable manufacturers to easily upgrade designs on the code-compatible DaVinci technology.

The streaming media version of the DaVinci technology will be a system-on-a-chip based on high-performance S320C6000T DSPs. It is built around a programmable DSP with video and audio peripherals that match consumer entertainment equipment specs. Moreover, the software will be used in conjunction with ANT and Orca software.

ANT, a provider of advanced embedded solutions for digital TV, presents customers with a highly dynamic browser-based solution that, when coupled with the advanced capabilities of the TI silicon, gives service providers interactive content applications with feature-rich digital TV programming. On the other hand, Orca Interactive is an IPTV middleware provider for broadband network operators and service providers.

The combination of Orca middleware, ANT browser and TI silicon means that the owners of the key streaming technologies have come together, making it possible for encoder vendors, VoD servers and conditioned access providers to be added to a cutting-edge streaming media ecosystem that is fully interoperable.
