IP Media Reference Design Supports Whole-Home and Hospitality Media OEMs

IPv6 Phase-2ATLANTA, GEORGIA – June 23, 2008 –Unicoi Systems, a long-time provider of set-top box and multimedia device solutions, offers a development platform for OEMs building the next generation of whole-home and hospitality media services. To equip developers with an off-the-shelf platform from which to deliver a wholly immersive, pervasive computing environment, Unicoi Systems offers its IP Media Reference Design.

In today’s premium lodging and automated home markets, consumers are beginning to demand seamless mobility solutions designed to optimize the user experience. Contemporary guests and inhabitants will soon expect to transparently interface with climate control, lighting, security, and home entertainment – both locally and from remote locations. They will also expect in-room or in-home services to similarly integrate access to collective data storage, the World Wide Web, and standard telephony. Furthermore, these systems will be required to analyze profile data in delivering a custom environment specific to individual users.

Uncoi’s IP Media Reference Design is a hardware and software platform that offers developers everything needed to meet growing demand for an integrated whole-home or hospitality environment, out-of-the-box. To conserve resources and shorten time-to-market, the industry’s most prevalent protocols are included for integrating audio, networking, and more. To deliver high-performance, low-power, and cost-efficient embedded processing, the design features the Analog Devices Blackfin® BF-561, which is a perfect complement to the pre-installed Fusion software. The software, most of which is provided with complete source code, includes:  Fusion License-Free RTOS, the widely deployed Fusion TCP/IP stack, RTP, RTSP, SIP, HTTP Server, Common Internet File System (CIFS), and the Fusion WebPilot embedded browser.

OEMs preparing to meet the demands of premium hospitality and whole-home consumers now have an off-the-shelf platform from which to design and deliver the best possible user experience. Unicoi’s IP Media Reference Design makes it easy for developers to focus on the specifics of their projects by delivering a proven hardware and software platform that is ready-to-manufacture or customize.
