Octasic recently Receives Award for its Vocallo Multi-Core Media Gateway DSP

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

 

Media processing solutions outfit Octasic (News - Alert) recently announced that EN – Genius Network named its Vocallo Multi-Core Media Gateway DSP solution as a recipient of its 2007 Product of the Year Award for Most Innovative DSP Product.


EN-Genius Network is the premier source for electronic design engineers working in the fields of power management, audio/video, acquisition, connectivity, networking, wireless applications, DSP, programmable logic, and green engineering.

“The asynchronous logic technology used in the Octasic Vocallo processing chip gives it high levels of channel density and low power-per-channel that put it in some rarified company with only a handful of chips to compare it to. This and an easy-to-use development suite could make it a disrupting factor in the voice processing market,” said Lee Goldberg, senior technical editor, EN-Genius.

Vocallo is based on Opus, Octasic's unique DSP core architecture, which offers the highest performance-to-power ratio in the industry with a traditional programming model. In high-density applications, Opus is the most efficient DSP core processor by two-fold. In addition, Opus provides a rich instruction set that goes beyond DSP functions allowing for expandability into new applications.

The Vocallo solution is the first DSP platform of its kind to enable a new flexible business model for OEMs designing media gateways. This business model enables an OEM to design a cost-reduced gateway to handle today's Voice over IP (VoIP) needs with licensable performance to accommodate future applications. This allows OEMs to defer the costs of additional performance capacity until an application requires it.

“We are honored that our Vocallo solution has been chosen to receive the Product of the Year Award from EN-Genius Network,” said Frederic Bourget (News - Alert), Octasic's director of product management. “For Vocallo to receive this kind of recognition is a very positive way to begin 2008, and reinforces the industry's need for innovative, cost-effective DSP options.”

A total of 29 different products in the categories of data acquisition, audio/video technology, green technology, green-power engineering, DSP, wireless, connectivity, networking, passives, low power and high power were selected, from among the hundreds of products reviewed in 2007 by EN-Genius. Goldenberg believes that the products selected "will make significant bottom line numbers for the companies involved" because of their strong technical merit, design innovation and marketability.”

In October, the company announced its next generation multi-core gateway DSP platform for voice, video and data over IP applications. Vocallo combines ultimate flexibility, with pristine voice and video quality, to deliver the most comprehensive solution for current and future media gateways.

The Vocallo expandable media gateway solution is the first DSP platform of its kind to enable a new flexible business model for OEMs designing media gateways. This business model enables an OEM to design a cost-reduced gateway to handle today’s Voice over IP (VoIP) needs with licensable performance to accommodate future applications. This allows OEMs to defer the costs of additional performance capacity until they deliver and charge for an application that requires it.

“Because requirements are constantly changing, there is a need for greater flexibility and expandability in media processing devices. Vocallo is the only solution today that allows OEMs to pick their features, add-in their own software and upgrade,” said Frederic Bourget, director of product management at Octasic. “Vocallo is powerful and flexible. It is a comprehensive solution for current and future applications.”
