APT gave its latest encoding technology its first public appearance at NAB2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Joining the Standard and Enhanced apt-X compression algorithms is the apt-X Live codec, which capable of delivering compression ratios of up to 8:1 with the same acoustics and ultralow delay of other apt-X algorithms.

"The industry is demanding ever greater bandwidth efficiency and we sought to provide a solution, which meets these demands without compromising on the core competences associated with apt-X," said APT Commercial Director Jon McClintock.

According to McClintock, participants in a series of independent listening tests were unable to discern any difference between 24-bit, 48 kHz PCM audio and apt-X Live.

Microphone manufacturer Shure Inc. has signed a licensing agreement with APT to incorporate the technology into its wireless live performance products, and APT plans incorporate the new algorithm into its codec range by late 2007.
