RMI to power Packet Vision’s PV 1000
Packet Vision announced at IBC 2008 that its addressable TV advertising solution will be powered by RMI Corp.
Packet Vision’s addressable advertising solution, the PV 1000, is a fully integrated appliance with an ad server, splicer and router. The PV 1000 enables advertisers to target different ads at different audiences simultaneously, Packet Vision said.
Packet Vision’s PV 1000 uses RMI’s XLR Processor, an 8-core, 32-threaded device that consists of a set of XLR cores enabling up to 32 threads, or virtual CPUs (vCPUs), in a single chip, according to the company. The XLR’s MIPS64 compatible cores implement fine-grained, 4-way multithreading, combined with a multi-level hierarchy of caches, autonomous accelerators and point-to-point interconnects for data and message transfers.
Patrick Christian, CTO and founder of Packet Vision, said: “Packet Vision software is fundamentally architected for a multi-processor hardware platform. The multi-core, multi-threaded XLR Processor Family from RMI hits all of the nails on the head for us. It is built on a robust multi-processor concept, based on MIPS and demonstrates exceptionally high performance. We have been pleased with the ease of design and with RMI’s technical support during our development process.”
RMI provides high-performance Super System-on-a-Chip (SuperSoC) processor solutions for the infrastructure, enterprise and consumer media markets. Applications include wireless, networking security, thin clients and connected multimedia.
