Compression Technology R&D
Our Leading-Edge Technology
We hold more than 500 granted patents and patent applications in the field of low bit rate speech and audio compression. Our engineers invented the internationally recognized ACELP® technology platform, the patented core audio codec technology present in 17 telecommunication standards, notably: GSM EFR (ETSI), PCS 1900, IS136 (TIA, North American TDMA), IS 95 (TIA, North American CDMA), TETRA (ETSI), G.729 (ITU-T), G.723.1 (ITU-T), AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) narrowband (ETSI and 3GPP), AMR-WB (3GPP), G.722.2 (ITU-T), MPEG4 CELP Audio (ISO), PDC-EFR (ARIB-Japan), VMR-WB (3GPP2), and most recently AMR-WB+ (3GPP).
ACELP® technology is deployed in more than one billion mobile phones—93% of digital cellular phones worldwide. In addition, since 1994 ACELP® has become a de facto standard for voice applications on the Internet (present on over 500 million PCs worldwide) and has been integrated by companies such as Microsoft, RealNetworks, and Apple into their Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, and QuickTime Player products, respectively.
The technological and commercial positioning of the ACELP® technology combined with the strong expertise acquired by the VoiceAge research team over many years provide tremendous advantages to our clients and partners. Because we are at the forefront of innovation, we enable our customers and partners to offer highly competitive added-value products and services to their respective markets.
