Russia, Moscow, Mar. 5, 2014. SPIRIT DSP, the world’s No. 1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than one billion users in over 100 countries demonstrated its new software products – the H.264/VP8 Transcoding Server software and multipoint web-videoconferencing with mobile clients running iOS, Android, Windows Phone at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
SPIRIT DSP’s multipoint videoconferencing with iOS, Android, Windows Phone, PC and Mac clients in one conference room meets the growing demand for interoperability, BYOD and mobility on the enterprise market.
Service providers and RSC software vendors have acknowledged and recognized the TeamSpirit Transcoding Server as a highly demanded innovative product that enables video interoperability and thus helps solve the issue of lack of one common standard for video and HD voice on the Internet.
The demand from telcos, service providers, software vendors, enterprises and end-users in cost-effective transcoding is caused by the continuing competition between Google, which pushes hard for its VP8/VP9 video codec on one side, and Microsoft, Apple and Cisco and other telcos that use the H.264 standard on the other. There is also no seamless interoperability between different HD VoIP software products that use different HD voice codecs. This causes problems for end users, who cannot communicate with each other if they use different VoIP software that is based on diverse protocols as well as slows the dynamics of the VVoIP usage worldwide. The TeamSpirit Transcoding Server’s software helps solve this interoperability issue between different applications in a cost-effective way, thanks to its high scalability on commodity hardware.
“SPIRIT helps telcos, service providers, RSC software vendors and enterprises deliver seamless HD voice and video interoperability to users that will drive fast growth of video conferencing and mobile VoIP usage and convenience, despite the presence of other competing protocols from Google, Microsoft, Apple and ITU-T,” SPIRIT DSP Chairman Andrew Sviridenko said.
