GIPS Expands Into VOIP Devices

SAN FRANCISCO -- Global IP Sound (GIPS) today announced the availability of version 3.0 of its iSAC codec. The market leading adaptive codec for developers of Voice over IP (VoIP) communications, iSAC 3.0 is now optimized for use in hardware devices. This solution allows the makers of IP phones, gateways and chipsets to deliver products that offer the same high quality voice experience that users of PC-based Internet calling services have come to expect.

“Users of VoIP products are demanding solutions that provide the highest possible voice quality,” said Will Stofega, research manager of VoIP services program at IDC. “The ability for device manufacturers to incorporate technology that produces a robust, clear sound, even under heavy packet loss, as well as the ability to interconnect with hundreds of millions of softphone users, not only helps to meet this need but delivers on the promise of a more rewarding VoIP experience.”

The latest fixed-point version of the GIPS iSAC adaptive VoIP codec, part of the GIPS Soundware™ voice processing software suite, is designed to deliver wideband quality in both low- and high-bit rate applications. Several IP-chipset manufacturers including Texas Instruments will incorporate GIPS’s iSAC 3.0 codec into their VoIP solutions.

“As a leading enabler of wideband telephony solutions, we realize the importance of technologies that facilitate high quality voice communications,” said Fred Zimmerman, executive director, VoIP customer premises solutions, Texas Instruments. “The addition of GIPS’ wideband codec to our portfolio further enables us to offer our customers VoIP solutions that deliver an unparalleled user experience that surpasses what callers have grown accustomed to with their traditional phone service.”
