Bradon Technologies Intros New Audio Codec

By Jessica Kostek, TMCnet Channel Editor

Bradon Technologies, committed to innovating, developing and delivering the world's most advanced online meeting tools and technology, has developed a new audio codec.
The BTAC (Bradon Technologies Audio Codec) is a proprietary Frame Independent codec that utilizes the full 4 kHz frequency band with a sampling rate of 8 kHz. They may be Frame Dependent, using the Code Excited Linear Prediction (CELP) coding paradigm, where behavior of past speech packets is used to predict the encoding of incoming packets.
One encoding frame length of 180 ms is used to support all four of BTAC’s bitrate offerings (2.4, 4.8, 9.6 and 19.2 kbps). Each frame is encoded and decoded independently of past frames.
Bradon’s new audio codec works for voice-over-the-Internet communications and has extremely low overhead. This is very significant for channels with a limited connection capacity. Officials also say it runs 4-times faster than G.729 and it is 10-times more agile than iLBC.
By combining “exceptional” group VoIP quality with online collaboration software, officials say, Bradon is quickly becoming a leader in online communications.
BTAC is designed for real-time, full-duplex communications over the Internet for multi-channel environments, including Unified Communications (News - Alert) applications, iPBX and Mobile devices with low CPU resources. In addition to minimal CPU usage, BTAC delivers very low bandwidth based on its high audio compression algorithms and extremely low overhead.
“Bradon Technologies is in the unique position to take VoIP enabled PC and Smartphone collaboration applications to the next level of global adoption with its BTAC codec technology. BTAC supports unlimited simultaneous multi users without sacrificing quality and offers low bandwidth and CPU load times which are critical for Mobile device applications, officials said.”
“BTAC solves the VoIP data delivery problem with its proprietary blend of codec components that maximize efficiencies in the areas of data loss, compression, bandwidth, multi-user synchronization, CPU usage, and UDP (News - Alert) overhead.”
Bradon is now offering BTAC as a software development kit (SDK) for companies such as wireless carriers seeking a competitive advantage in the development of VoIP-enabled Unified Communications and mobility applications for use in PCs and SmartPhones. The applications can deliver the full group collaboration capability required to attract business users.
“BTAC applies high data compression algorithms, while keeping CPU utilization low, which is important for Mobile device applications, officials said. “SAVii Desk’s VoIP-enabled audio, desktop sharing and streaming video application has been successfully deployed in PCs and SmartPhones using Windows Mobile Operating System as well as BlackBerry (News - Alert) Smartphones.”
Offered as an SDK, the BTAC platform can be used for companies developing VoIP-enabled Unified Communications and mobility applications for use in PCs and SmartPhones.
