CouthIT, one of India’s leading provider of multimedia software, today announced that it has developed optimized implementations of EVRC-B and EVRC-WB (EVRC-C) codec for real-time deployment by end customers.
CouthIT enables the creation and delivery of rich multimedia content by developing highly optimized software solutions. All solutions are targeted to provide the best performance in terms of lowest MIPS and memory footprint in the industry. Customers use CouthIT’s implementations to create leading-edge audio, video products for applications such as cell phones, PDAs, other battery operated hand-held devices, as well as high-density applications.
Krishna Nagarajan, CEO of CouthIT, said, “Fourth generation voice codecs significantly increases network capacity while maintaining the voice quality provided by the existing EVRC-A vocoder. Being one of the first companies to develop the optimized production-ready implementations of EVRC-B and EVRC-WB codecs will enable us to readily support OEMs and design houses working on gateways, handsets, base-stations, streaming media servers and other wireless/VOIP solutions. Our customers can easily integrate our solutions to fully exploit the additional network capacity and deploy wideband telephony applications to enrich the end-user experience”.
EVRC-B/C, a fourth generation vocoder, has been developed as a backward compatible evolution from the Enhanced Variable Rate codec (EVRC-A). A more sophisticated coding approach allows EVRC-B to offer a voice quality equivalent to EVRC-A, but at significantly lower average coding bit rates. EVRC-C, a further enhancement to EVRC-A, incorporates a wideband voice coding option for improved voice quality. The wideband coding capabilities, however, are achieved using the same average data rate as EVRC-A.
CouthIT is well positioned to provide developed implementations of EVRC-B and EVRC-C on the TI C55x, TI C64x+, ARM9E and Cortex platforms. CouthIT is a preferred TI Third Party Network member working with Texas Instruments and a Connected Community member of ARM, providing highly efficient multimedia codecs on their processors.
CouthIT (couthit.com), headquartered in Hyderabad, India, is a leading global provider of highly optimized, best-in-class, speech, audio and video codecs to OEMs and Design houses. It also provides services in the design and development of digital signal processing software solutions for multimedia applications. CouthIT transforms customers’ ideas into software solutions, on time, within budget, and with maximum emphasis on quality, performance, ease of use and integration and subsequent support.
