Cezzer Selects TI’s Processor to Launch VoD Terminal

Texas Instruments has said that Cezzer Multimedia Technologies has selected its TMS320DM644x digital media processor based on DaVinci technology, to launch a high-definition video-on-demand terminal, the Cezzer videoclub, which can provide VoD to internet subscribers who have an unlimited internet connection.

Cezzer's HD40 VoD videoclub terminal utilizes TI's DM644x system-on-chip (SoC) digital media processor as its sole processor. The DM644x is based on TI's TMS320C64x+ core and an ARM926EJ-S. The C64x+ core performs WMV9/AC-1 720p video decoding, while the device's ARM9 implements I/Os and Microsoft DRM.

Patrick Touzeau, CEO of Cezzer Multimedia Technologies, said: "Thanks to DaVinci technology we were able to develop our HD40 videoclub in just 18 months with a small engineering team. This is our first product, and we value the range of development tools and the expert support of TI's field application engineers."
