Kirkland, WA – Sep 24, 2007 – Neural Audio demonstrated several technologies at the NAB Radio Show last week. At the center of the Neural display was the Neustar 4.0 codec pre-conditioner. Neural provides a hardware and software version of this processor. Neural also demonstrated it Neural-THX Surround Downmix and Upmix system.
Debuted at NAB2007, the Neural-AMR-WB+ provides streaming at very low bit rates of 6- to 48kb/s, which substantially lowers the bandwidth needed for streaming and file storage. The Voiceage speech and audio compression technologies are currently used in more than two billion wireless devices. The Neural-AMR-WB+ technology is explained that while some data-reduced codecs are working from higher bit-rates to reduce the payload needed, AMR-WB+ starts with a low bit-rate and builds up to improve fidelity.
