Kane Computing Sells Adaptive Digital's Audio Software, Chips, Solutions

3/23/2005 - Kane Computing Ltd (KCL) has recently signed a distribution agreement with Adaptive Digital Technologies, Inc. (Adaptive Digital) to represent them in the UK and Ireland, to promote and sell their portfolio of DSP algorithms, chips, and solutions, such as voice compression, conferencing, telephony signalling, voice over IP, noise reduction and echo cancellation for use with Texas Instruments' TMS320TM family of DSPs.

"We are very excited to be partnering with Kane Computing", said Brian McCarthy, president, Adaptive Digital Technologies. "Our partnership with KCL fills a gap in our international sales coverage in a key territory. We look forward to the increased exposure our relationship with KCL will provide. Kane understands the sales process and more importantly understands their customers and their needs. By combining our DSP technology with Kane's strong presence in the region we are opening the door to many new opportunities."

"We have been looking for a partner who provides a wide range of top quality telecom and audio software solutions combined with first class support." said Richard White, Managing Director of KCL. "I am pleased to say we have found this combination is provided by Adaptive Digital Technologies. Their algorithms, chips and solutions fit perfectly into own strategic marketing activities.

Adaptive Digital's flagship product is their patented, ITU G.168-2002 echo canceller, offered as both a network echo canceller, and line echo canceller. The network echo canceller supports echo tails up to 128 msec, while the line echo canceller supports tail length up to 32 msec. Independently tested at AT&T's voice quality test lab, Adaptive Digital's G.168-2002 echo canceller has been certified as "carrier grade " and is fully compliant with the Texas Instruments xDAISTM standard. Adaptive Digital's echo canceller has been deployed in over forty countries.

Adaptive Digital's G.PAKTM is a scalable and configurable voice-over-packet DSP software solution. G.PAK provides all the DSP components necessary in a voice-over-packet system and provides an application interface to allow easy integration into a user's application. Adaptive Digital's G.PAK base algorithm set includes G.711 and G.168 - 2002 compliant network echo canceller.

Adaptive Digital offers solutions based on G.PAKTM technology. The high-density conference chip is designed to provide conference call capability to telephone systems. The solution is based upon the TI TMS320C6415TM DSP generation. Each 600 MHz DSP can host up to 512 channels of VoIP, conferencing, tone detection, tone generation, voice record and playback, and other functions. Adaptive Digital's ipPhoneChipTM includes all the DSP functionality necessary for a high quality IP speakerphone. The ipPhoneChip runs on the Texas Instruments TMS320C5471TM dual-core processor. Adaptive Digital will soon be offering an IP phone reference design kit, based on its ipPhoneChipTM. This same IP phone was recently showcased along with other consumer products at the TI Developers conference 2005 Technology Playroom.

KCL and Adaptive Digital are Texas Instruments Third Party Partners. Adaptive Digital has expertise in developing telephony algorithms and solutions on TI DSPs and KCL has expertise in advising, supporting and supplying TI DSP developers with complete design and development packages.

Adaptive Digital Technologies, Inc. is located in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA).
