DSP Group teams up with Media5 and MERA to deliver a comprehensive voice and video platform with a telephony SDK

Offering strong processing power and easy integration, the new DVF1100 hardware platform enables high performance and Ultra-HD voice and Full-HD video quality

Quebec, Canada – Dec. 2016. The leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, DSP Group, will showcase in partnership with MERA and Media5 a complete voice and video application. It will be powered by the Media5-fone Client running on the Android OS based DVF1100 platform during the CES 2017, in Las Vegas (U.S.), from January 5 to 8.

Through its SIP SDKs, the leading provider of IP-based multimedia communication solutions, Media5, enables developers to create rich feature applications, including HD Voice and Video calls with echo cancellation and strong jitter buffer. They also allow a great level of customisation to meet ODM manufactures and technology developers’ needs, increasing productivity and accelerating time-to-market.

Aiming to bring even more agility to this project, DSP Group has involved MERA, based on its expertise in Android Open Source Project (AOSP), Unified Communications and Mobile Application development.

With a wide knowledge in a large variety of platforms and technologies, MERA and Media5’s contributions were essential to enable a high performance, yet affordable product. The DVF1100 provides superb HD and Ultra-HD voice quality with advanced algorithms, voice codecs, and state-of-the-art Acoustical Echo Cancellation (AEC).

“We are very proud of partnering with both DSP Group and MERA and bring our technology and expertise into this highly valuable solution. Our M5T SIP Client Engine SDKs are complete, interoperable, secure, and customisable to create unique and tailored applications to achieve time-to-market, without the need for complicated integrations or deep VoIP know-how”, states Stefano Genoni, Business Development at Media5.

“Collaborating with both MERA and Media5, leading software design partners, allows us to provide our customers with a complete and fully integrated solution which offers a significant time-to-market advantage at minimal investment”, said Fredy Rabih, VP of Product Management at DSP Group, “a state-of-the-art cutting-edge multimedia platform, DVF1100 allows our customers to develop the next generation video phones and multimedia terminals with focus on advanced applications, supporting Full-HD video and Ultra-HD voice with superb quality”.

“We are glad to be part of this grand-scale project alongside with DSP Group and Media5. Our Board Support Package (BSP) integrates the Android Platform with DSPG DVF1100 hardware and Media5 SIP client SDK. As a result our customers get a production ready development environment for the introduction of customer’s desktop, conferencing, videophone, and softphone clients. BSP will save significant time and development effort to provide a fully functional solution in the quickest time”, says Bill Timm, VP of Business Development at MERA.
