RadiSys Introduces New Media Processing Blade for Convedia CMS-9000 Media Server

RadiSys Corporation announced today a new media processing blade for the Convedia(R) CMS-9000 Media Server. The new Media Processing Card IV (MPC-IV) delivers capacity and performance improvements for processing-intensive applications such as conferencing, video and low bitrate codec. With the new MPC-IV blade, Convedia CMS-9000 Media Servers offer the industry's highest port capacity with lower price per port for the most demanding media processing applications.

The new MPC-IV card adds additional Digital Signal Processor (DSP) resources to the original Media Processing Card III (MPC-III) hardware design, providing up to 24,000 ports of media processing power on the CMS-9000 platform, representing a 30 percent capacity improvement compared to the media processing cards in RadiSys' first generation CMS-6000 Media Server systems. The new MPC-IV card continues to offer the improved CPU power for CPU-bound applications like VoiceXML IVR processing, while adding the additional DSP resources for improved conference mixing, video, low bitrate codec and transcoding capacity.
