Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Ittiam Systems announced Ittiam's IP video phone solution built on TI's DaVinci technology-based TMS320DM6446 processor.

DaVinci technology is designed for digital video systems and includes DSP-based SoCs, accelerators, frameworks and development tools. Ittiam's IPVP6446 delivers video over IP communication with multi-way call capability for standalone applications. The solution can be integrated into other embedded applications such as IP STBs.

IPVP6446 is an integrated software solution utilizing TI's DaVinci technology offering, including the software architecture, which consists of a Linux platform support package and interprocessor communications. This is accompanied by Ittiam's application-specific reference platform built on the TMS320DM6446 processor. The media engine delivers H.264-based video coding in peer-to-peer and multi-way call scenarios.

The phone is said to adapt video bit-rate depending on bandwidth, and provides manual adjustment of video frame-rate or bit rate and enables self view or picture-in-picture mode dynamically during a call. It supports SIP and offers a framework integrating the media engine, media-controller, call-controller and user-interface manager.

The IPVP6446 comes with built-in keypad, speaker, microphone, camera and VGA TFT LCD display with Ethernet interface and built-in Ethernet switch, WLAN, USB, IrDA and RJ11 interface. The platform also supports storage devices including HDD, SD/MMC and SM. Within the system, TI's MSP430 16bit RISC MCU handles supervising functions by watching for inputs from the infrared remote control and providing a real-time clock function. TI claims that the MCUs offer the industry's lowest power real-time clock mode operation at 0.8A.
