SPIRIT DSP, a provider of voice and video over IP engines, has received INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine’s 2011 Unified Communications (News - Alert) Product of the Year Award for VideoMost.com, a Web-based video conferencing software from the company.
Based on SPIRIT DSP's video engine, VideoMost.com works for Windows, Mac, Android (News - Alert) and iOS clients and Windows or Linux-based video conferencing servers. Supporting highly scalable H.264SVC video codec and SPIRIT's IP-MR(TM) wideband voice codec (IETF RFC 6262), the software enables HD voice and multi-party video calling.
"The editors from INTERNET TELEPHONY are pleased to grant a Unified Communications Product of the Year Award to SPIRIT DSP for VideoMost.com," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC (News - Alert), in a statement. "SPIRIT DSP has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. We look forward to seeing continued advancement in technology solutions from SPIRIT DSP in the future."
The multipoint video software works at speeds of 512 Kbps, providing up to 30 fps HD 720p and supporting unprecedented 1,000 concurrent video channels per single $4,000 PC server. The solution is designed for licensing to telecom carriers and service/SaaS (News - Alert) providers as a white-labeled branded service for their enterprise customers.
SPIRIT software automatically adapts video quality to bandwidth and processor power available.
With a simple Internet connection, a microphone, speakers and a webcam, users can start a videoconferencing instantly on their PCs and iPads, even on wireless connections, unlike hardware systems that require specially equipped meeting rooms. It also includes desktop sharing, conference moderation, messaging, presence and more functions.
"We are extremely pleased that INTERNET TELEPHONY has once again recognized VideoMost.com for its ground-breaking ability to enable telcos to quickly offer new and highly demanded Telco-OTT services, like video conferencing, to their subscribers," said Alex Kravchenko, SPIRIT's VP Sales, in a statement.
"VideoMost.com lets service providers generate new revenue, lower operating costs, reduce churn and increase customer satisfaction of their own-branded service offerings, while competing effectively against Skype and Google (News - Alert) - who's products were not built for secure, administrated multi-point corporate video conferencing," Kravchenko added.
Recently, SPIRIT DSP announced a partnership with mobile VoIP application business Maaii Limited to deliver cross-platform, integrated HD VoIP (Voice over IP) communications to consumers and operators. Under this partnership, Maaii has licensed SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice Engine Mobile and TeamSpirit Voice Engine PC SDKs to power its new communication applications with HD-quality VoIP calling for iOS and Android devices.
