Dilithium Extends its Technology Leadership with New Multimedia Gateway Release

    PETALUMA, CALIF., October 29 /CNW/ - Dilithium, the leading supplier of
converged video solutions, announced the 2.2.1 release of its latest DTG 2000
Multimedia Gateway incorporating state-of-the-art video technologies of MONA,
WNSRP, H.264 video transcoding as well as extended IMS support. The DTG 2000
Release 2.1.1 is available immediately.

    MONA (Media Oriented Negotiation Acceleration or ITU-T H.324 Annex K) is
a recently standardized video session set-up time acceleration technique that
significantly improves the video customer experience by reducing the session
setup time to around one second, comparable to voice calls. The new release
DTG fully supports all of the three MONA terminal classes for the best
performance and flexibility with any handset. Full support for WNSRP (Windowed
Numbered Simple Retransmission Protocol) is also provided in this release.
WNSRP accelerates the transport of command and control messages in video
calls. The MONA and WNSRP techniques are mandated by the ITU-T and recommended
by 3GPP for video calling technologies, including video value added services,
and use Dilithium technologies at their core.

    "The DTG 2000 now also incorporates end to end support for H.264. The
H.264 video codec, which delivers stunning quality at the low data rates used
in wireless communications, was ratified as part of the MPEG-4 standard
(MPEG-4 Part 10) as well as ITU-T Recommendation H.264," says Mitch Lewis,
Senior Vice President for Dilithium's Service Provider Business Unit. "This
ultra-efficient technology provides excellent results across a broad range of
bandwidths, from 3G mobile devices, broadband and internet, to HD for
broadcast and DVD. Earlier releases of the DTG 2000 supported H.263 and MPEG-4
video (MPEG-4 Part 2) with full transcoding, transrating and Video Refresh(TM)

    The DTG 2000 is the leading multimedia platform enabling a wide range of
converged video value added services such as live TV, video portals, video
surveillance, video blogging, video push, and video ring back tones. These
applications enable operators to create and offer enhanced video services such
as video ringback tones, video chat, video blogging and live TV. The DTG 2000
is also used as a combined IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) video gateway, and
more specifically as a MGCF/IMS-GW (Media Gateway Control Function and IMS
media gateway). Dilithium is the first to market with a multimedia gateway
incorporating these technologies.
