MOSCOW – March 19, 2008 – SPIRIT DSP, the world’s leading provider of voice and video software engines, announced today that Taiwan’s National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) has chosen SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit® 3.0 Voice&Video Engine PC to support Taiwan’s Advanced Research and Education Network. SPIRIT won this government project in a public bid among all competitive solutions.

NCHC, supported and funded by the government of Taiwan, is Taiwan’s leading source for HPC (high performance computing) hardware, software and networking resources. NCHC created a new remote educational program, to help fulfill the “Challenge 2008” plan recently implemented by the government of Taiwan, established to foster the creativity and talent that Taiwan needs to achieve success in the new world economy. The TeamSpirit engine will be used in conjunction with the NCHC’s newly developed videoconferencing system, giving remote users a high-quality voice and video over IP (V2oIP) experience.

“SPIRIT again has demonstrated its ability to deliver the highest quality voice and video over IP experience. Its award-winning technology has been proven by the largest telecommunications companies in the world. After careful review and testing, we’re now confident in SPIRIT’s ability to deliver the best communication experience,” said Shyi-Ching Lin, Education Platform Project Leader at NCHC.

“Taiwan is a very advanced market for V2oIP technology, and we’re pleased that our voice and video engine is supporting Taiwan’s Advanced Research and Education Network, lead by the National Center for High-Performance Computing,” said Alex Kravchenko, VP Sales of SPIRIT. “Within the distance learning and remote education markets, there’s a burning need for quality, converged communications. Our engines solve the technical issues typically encountered in V2oIP, offering the smoothest voice and video experience possible.”

TeamSpirit 3.0 Voice&Video Engine PC is a pre-integrated IMS-ready embedded software product that encapsulates wideband voice and video processing to offer the smoothest video and voice integration experience for NGN (Next Generation Network) services and applications.

The engine seamlessly bundles standard and proprietary wideband voice and video codecs, acoustic echo and noise cancellation, packet loss concealment, adaptive jitter buffer and network optimizing functionality, voice/video synchronization, all standard telephony protocols, CPU load control and more, allowing fast and easy integration into complex products designed to deliver low-latency V2oIP. The engine supports next generation IMS features: 3gp voice/video sharing, voice/video recording, 3gp playback/record, RTSP/SDP protocols, push-to-talk, etc., and is optimized for Microsoft® Windows® 98/2K/XP/Vista, Apple® Mac OSR X, and Linux, among other operating systems.
