Taipei, November 27, 2007 - SPIRIT DSP (www.spiritDSP.com), the world's leading provider of voice and video software engines, announced today that Inventec Multimedia & Telecom Corp. ("Importek"), one of the largest manufacturers of the multimedia & telecommunication products, will use TeamSpirit® Voice&Video Engine Embedded in Apollo design of NX® product family, manufactured by Importek, a subsidiary of Inventec Group.

"Importek has extensive expertise in IP Terminal Technology and has shipped over 8 million VoIP phones in the past 4 years. Our next-generation devices bring new opportunities and are a break-through for the global communication market, that's why we have chosen SPIRIT - the voice and video engine provider with the best offering and the best reputation," said Larry Sun, General Manager of Importek.

"To stay competitive in the market today, mobile equipment and design manufacturers have to look for mature, high quality voice and video over IP solutions. Today, SPIRIT is the only player on the global internet telephony market who offers not only voice but also video over IP solutions, excellently optimized for embedded platforms, as well as for the PC," said Alex Kravchenko, VP Sales at SPIRIT. "Our technology already powers a great number of world leading products including those from Arima, Compal, HTC, Quanta and other leaders of the industry. We believe our joint project with Importek is a significant move ahead for both companies, and moreover, it is a great leap toward the market of next generation voice and video converged communications."

TeamSpirit® 3.0 Voice&Video Engine Embedded is a highly optimized media processing solution which enables real-time voice & video over IP calls. The engine allows to process video at up to 30 fps on the new devices of Importek, while default market offerings boast only 10-15 fps. The engine supports VGA mode (640 x 480) which is considered to be the best choice for the majority of mobile devices. The SPIRIT's solution also supports widescreen resolution format (16:9), which is compatible with almost all modern HD devices and is the most optimal for the human visual perception. TeamSpirit Embedded is IMS-ready, so new revenue generating applications and services can be implemented on wireline or wireless devices.
