Our sister company Fluendo, the leading provider of multimedia codecs in the GNU/Linux market have today presented at GSMA Barcelona. They showcased multimedia solutions for Intel’s next generation handheld and Smartphone platform, codenamed “Moorestown”.
Fluendo has optimised its multimedia software to take advantage of hardware acceleration on the platform and worked with Intel to incorporate the GStreamer framework in the linux-based Moblin 2.1 OS for Intel Moorestown based devices. Fluendo employs several of the central developers of the GStreamer multimedia framework, which is quickly establishing itself as the de-facto standard multimedia framework for GNU/Linux and UNIX systems.
“Fluendo’s collaboration with Intel on the Moorestown platform extends the longstanding relationship the company has had since the launch of the Intel Atom processor. Together with Intel, we are working to provide customers with efficient global solutions, high performance quality, and one stop shop licensing”, said Muriel Moscardini, Fluendo CSO.
“The Intel Moorestown platform is designed to deliver outstanding performance at dramatically lower power while maintaining software compatibility,” said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel Corporation’s Ultra Mobility Group. “With the support of the GStreamer framework and Fluendo’s multimedia solutions, consumers will be able to bring their media to life on their Moorestown based handhelds and smartphones.”
