ZTE To Provide HD Video Conferencing Service In China

China's ZTE Corporation has licensed Spirit DSP's voice solution to power ZTE's HD video conferencing systems to give end-users a rich communication experience.

"We found Spirit's solution to far exceed all known similar software products in terms of quality, scalability and reliability. With Spirit's solution, there is no delay, transcoding or noise aggregation on the server side – the quality is magnificent and the software's ability to scale is almost limitless. We're pleased to be working with Spirit," said Huang Qiang, chief engineer of Multimedia Terminals Network Division at ZTE.

The high-end videoconferencing market is surging very fast. Research firm IDC expects sales to nearly triple this year to US$169 million from just US$64 million last year, and reach US$1 billion by 2011.

"This relationship with ZTE marks another major milestone in Spirit's commitment to continue supplying the world's leading communications equipment providers with the most advanced, high-definition communication technologies," said Alex Kravchenko, VP sales at Spirit.
