Hot on the trail of its recent release of the apt-X Lossless algorithm, APTX has released apt-X Scalable.
The licensing company calls it a “cognitive” audio codec. It is designed quickly to interpret and then adapt to varying conditions. Those conditions might be resolution, temporal latency, error resilience, available bandwidth, computational power available and optimizing energy consumption, the company says. The market for apt-X Scalable includes anything from portable media players and broadcast to Internet surround sound and wireless peripherals.
APTX CEO Noel McKenna said: “Scalable audio coding elegantly solves various real-world deployment issues such as compromised bandwidth over wireless links on Internet connections and power conservation in portable applications.”
