Ibiquity Mum on Codec Plan
Publish date:

Ibiquity Digital Corp. declined to confirm or deny a published report that tests of an improved PAC algorithm are imminent.
The report also quoted an Ibiquity aftermarket receiver expert as saying the company has not yet made a final decision whether to continue with PAC or switch to a different codec.
Radio World has reported that the company is pursuing parallel paths with different codecs to resolve audio quality issues on AM at low bit rates.
A company spokesman said, "We're moving forward. We have a plan as to what we're going to do. We'll announce it as soon as we possibly can."
