LSI Announces Development System for Enterprise Video Applications


Proven StarPro silicon and software to enable intelligent media-aware networks

MILPITAS, Calif. - LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the availability of a media processing development system based on the LSITM SP2704 StarPro® media processor, which extends the LSI asymmetrical multicore architecture to enterprise video applications using the company’s proven family of networking silicon and software. The new development system allows OEMs to build media-aware networks that enable intelligent media and graphics processing in the data center and enterprise network.

Enterprise networking equipment manufacturers are routinely faced with having to integrate proprietary components from multiple sources due to a lack of media-efficient solutions. To address these challenges, LSI has created a system specifically designed for the development of enterprise video applications. The new offering enables OEMs to develop scalable video processing systems more rapidly and more cost effectively.

“The continuing proliferation of new enterprise video services requires higher-performing and more efficient media processors with highly integrated software,” said Will Strauss, principal analyst, Forward Concepts. “LSI StarPro processors with video processing software can enable OEMs to develop comprehensive and advanced video network infrastructure.”

The media processing development system includes a portfolio of solutions for enterprise network and data center market segments. Containing a complete family of voice and video codecs and frameworks, this highly versatile, reprogrammable platform enables support for new video codecs such as the networking-centric SVC-HD codec. The system also provides a path to future video algorithms for applications such as video analytics, speech-to-text and text-to-speech. The new development system allows OEMs to quickly migrate from the SP2600 family to the SP2700 family while protecting existing investments.

“OEMs are faced with an avalanche of new video services, rapidly evolving standards and increasing bandwidth demands,” said Jon Devlin, DSP product line director, Networking Components Division, LSI. “Our media development system for enterprise networks delivers a proven, programmable and scalable hardware solution that future-proofs network investments and enables the delivery of cost-effective any-to-any services.”

Development systems are currently being sampled to lead customers. LSI has meeting suites at both Interop, Las Vegas, and Multicore Expo, San Jose, April 27-29. For more information on the SP2700 family of media processors visit
