SPIRIT DSP Releases H.264/VP8 Transcoding Server

SPIRIT DSP, the world's No. 1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than one billion users in over 100 countries, announced today the launch of TeamSpirit® Transcoding Server, its new VVoIP software product.

This useful software product offers cost-effective interoperability between different real-time voice and video communication tools and services. It was designed by SPIRIT specially for service providers, telcos, unified communications and video conferencing providers.

In the lack of commonly accepted HD voice and video standard on the Internet today, TeamSpirit Transcoding Server enables cost-effective interoperability that makes possible HD voice and video calls to/from different soft- and hardware video conferencing products, which are based on popular codecs using inexpensive commodity PC servers.

It also delivers high-performance transcoding to multiple bitrates for adaptive streaming. Video transcoding for H.263, H.264, H.265 and VP8 is provided, as well as the voice transcoding for SPIRIT IP-MR™ (IETF RFC 6262), G.711, G.722, G.723.1, G.726, G.729AB, G.722.1, GSM AMR-NB, GSM AMR-WB, iLBC, SILK.

TeamSpirit Transcoding boasts high scalability with up to 400 concurrent voice calls (sessions, each occupies two server ports) and up to 50 VGA concurrent video calls on a standard PC server (Intel, 3.1GHz). It also decreases patent royalties for software end-points. With the help of TeamSpirit Transcoding, telcos and service providers avoid most of standard codec patent payments for (millions of) end-points and pay for standard codec patents only for (thousands of) server channels. SPIRIT product also reduces the server hardware infrastructure costs tenfold in comparison with traditional conferencing systems.

“Google pushes hard for its VP8/VP9 video codec, while Microsoft, Apple and Cisco, together with all the telcos, widely use the H.264 standard, so there is no seamless video interoperability on the net today,” SPIRIT DSP Chairman Andrew Sviridenko said. “Our useful product helps to solve this problem, as TeamSpirit Transcoding Server software delivers cost-effective and seamless interoperability between multiple popular video and voice platforms on the net today”.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
