A U.K.-based provider of enabling technology for the communications market today announced the release of the latest version of its host media processing product with embedded support for Linux OS.
Officials with Aculab (News - Alert) say version 3 of what they call the “Prosody S” product now provides developers with the same access to codecs and media processing features as with their DSP-based Prosody X boards. Also, the offering now includes support for their distributed API architecture, so a single application server can be used to control operations in multiple distributed media servers.
According to Andrew Nicholson, product manager for Aculab, the company is aware that there are a number of application developers who use Linux OS and are offering them the ability to experience the power of Prosody S with this latest release.
“With version 3 we deliver the expanded scope while continuing to serve the needs of our customers that choose to work in a Windows environment,” Nicholson said.
Because the offering is software-based, it’s possible to operate it on any computer platform and customers can scale their implementations or build systems ranging from 2 to over 7000 channels in a single server, officials at the company said.
“Prosody S gives us the opportunity to quickly develop and deliver products on many different platforms while still employing many of the outstanding Prosody X features that drove our adoption of Aculab technology. In addition, the ability to license by channel is a clear advantage in providing solutions that are scalable and cost effective,” said Garibaldi Galvão Rocha, technical director at IVR and CTI (News - Alert) application supplier MidiaVox.
Recently, the company announced it renewed a partnership with Interact Incorporated, a voice and data solutions enabler, to enhance Interact’s so-called “SPOT” solution, a Prosody-integrated VoiceXML (News - Alert)/CCXML-based offering.
