MEDIA EXCEL Taps TI For Transcoding Products

Austin-based Media Excel, a developer of video transcoding products, said late last night that the firm is expanding a relationship with Texas Instruments, and will deliver new network video transcoding products based on TI's multicore DSP chips. Financial details of the expanded relationship were not disclosed. Media Excel is using Ti's semiconductors for designing video compression products aimed at the mobile TV, web TV, and IPTV markets. Media Excel's prior generation of products were also based on TI's products.
