June 24, 2008 -- Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI) is offering equipment manufacturers another option to further innovate their IP phone and VoIP device offerings with the announcement of its Modular Open Voice Engine (MOVE) software, a flexible voice solution ported to run on TI's TMS320C64x+ digital signal processor (DSP) core. MOVE is a highly optimized system software architecture aimed at a broad range of IP-enabled devices utilizing a field-proven voice engine. The increased processing performance of TI's DSP devices in conjunction with the new MOVE software architecture allow IP phone manufacturers to easily and cost effectively add value to their offerings and fully customize high-quality voice, video, and multimedia capabilities for their customers.
"This is the type of open software architecture that will let equipment manufacturers gaze beyond the realm of IP phones and traditional VoIP devices and expand their capabilities for adding voice to a host of different consumer electronics," said Norm Bogen, senior director of research at In-Stat. "I see some unique opportunities down the road for electronics manufacturers to leverage the flexibility, increased processing power and open architecture of TI's MOVE software to incorporate high quality voice in a myriad of next-generation devices, from home appliances to portable entertainment gadgets."
Since 1999, TI has developed field-ready voice software solutions that support high-performance, feature-rich IP phone platforms. Equipment manufacturers looking to add value to their VoIP-enabled platforms can use TI's MOVE software as the core to build and customize applications including addition of unique codecs, proprietary acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), or customized video and multimedia components.
