VeriSilicon Licenses Sorenson Spark Video Decoder
May 27, 2010 -- VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. has licensed the Sorenson Media Spark Software Developers Kit (SDK) to enhance its online video design platform. VeriSilicon will include the Sorenson Spark decoder in its libraries and core chipset for use in mobile devices.
Sorenson Spark is a ubiquitous video codec, and was the first codec used in Macromedia Flash, now Adobe Flash. The decoder exclusively enables the playback of hundreds of millions of videos on the Internet, including YouTube, the single largest online video destination site today. The Sorenson Spark SDK lets developers integrate the Sorenson Spark decoder into a wide array of programmable chipsets and semiconductors. The kit is designed to provide Sorenson Spark decoding on any platform, including custom silicon.
The optimized Sorenson Spark decoder is now available on VeriSilicon's ZSP digital signal processor cores. The inclusion of the Sorenson Spark codec will enable the company to expand its influence in the mobile device design marketplace by enhancing the video components of its proprietary libraries and chipsets, ultimately providing end mobile device users with access to the deepest pool of online video content. VeriSilicon's partnership is the latest in a steady and growing list of global companies that have licensed Sorenson Spark.
