Houston, Tex. In an effort to advance digital video product development,
Texas Instruments Inc. is offering a digital video development platform (DVDP) for its DaVinci digital media processors, the DM643x series.
The DM6437 DVDP brings the DaVinci technology development environment to the DM643x DSP-based processors by bundling a full TMS320DM6437 evaluation module (EVM) with DaVinci development tools and software for less than $500. The DM6437 DVDP is aimed at helping developers accelerate digital video development across a wide range of applications, including in-flight entertainment systems, IP net cameras, video phones and vision systems.
The DM643x digital media processors are the first DSP-only devices supporting DaVinci technology and are powerful enough to perform H.264 video encode at D1 resolution or to run the complete video, audio, networking for a target application like an IP-based Network Surveillance camera, all at a 50 percent cost reduction over TI's previous DSP digital media processors.

The DM6437 DVDP gives developers access to the DaVinci software and development infrastructure, easing design of video, imaging, speech and audio applications through application programming interfaces (APIs) calls through the DaVinci Codec Engine, which eliminates the need for developers to directly manage codecs.
The DM6437 DVDP provides a comprehensive suite of development tools and application software available for digital video applications and reduces application development time from months to weeks, according to TI.

Availability: In beta now; codecs and additional software licenses, which are required for production, are available through any of TI's Authorized Software Providers (ASPs).
