Glensound Electronics, APT Reveal DSP Licensing Deal

Specialist ISDN broadcast equipment manufacturer Glensound Electronics has signed an agreement with Belfast-based APT to license its apt-X(tm) DSP code, thus allowing the company to implement apt-X(tm) directly into a new range of mono reporter codecs due to be unveiled later this year.
Glensound's managing director Len Davis says: "We hope to unveil our new range during 2002 and we are convinced that the inclusion of apt-X(tm) DSP code will help us extend the client base for the range and improve overall sales."
Glensound Electronics has been using APT's original apt-X(tm) DSP16A Lucent part within its product line-up for many years. The company's decision to license apt-X(tm) DSP code assures the algorithm a key place within Glensound's new range and consolidates its position within the broadcast industry.
Key to the new licensing deal is the utilization of APT's IMUX algorithm, MUCAS, which allows cross compatibility between Glensound's new range and existing products using the traditional APT portfolio. It will also allow compatibility with the recently released APT WorldNet Milano, as well as being backwardly compatible with APT ISDN units such as BCF, DRT128, DSM Prolink and the Nicral apt-X@ units - Nicra X and Nica 64, thereby addressing broadcasters' requirements for low delay, high quality audio end to end.
