Texas Instruments Inc. and National Source Coding Audio and Video Technologies (Beijing) Co. Ltd (NSCC) partner to deliver the industry's first single-chip IPTV STB solution enabling dual decoding of AVS and H.264, HM2006.

Built on TI's innovative DaVinci technology platform, the solution targets on home A/V entertainment applications that adopt China's DTV standard, AVS. The easy-to-use and cost-effective solution will drive the widespread deployment of IPTV services in China, said TI.

As China's first single-chip IPTV STB solution that concurrently enables AVS and H.264 dual decoding, HM2006 is integrated with NSCC's AVS decoding algorithm and uses TI's innovative DM644x digital signal processors (DSPs) based on DaVinci technology.

The solution enables AVS, H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4 and WMV video decoding. Digital signal processing gives designers using TI's DaVinci technology the ability to add video functions to an application, because the programmable engine makes is as simple as writing to an API, saving OEMs months of development time and lowering overall system costs. The solution also can help operators meet faster deployment schedules at a lower development cost.
