Orban/CRL has joined a new group that focuses on audio over IP issues and hopes to develop standards-based systems.
AETA Audio Systems in France and Mayah Communications in Germany recently founded the Audio-via-IP Experts Group, a move to coordinate technical efforts and reach interoperability of audio codec products of various manufacturers.
Orban/CRL’s codec R&D department now has joined; the company is based in the United States.
The three companies issued a statement saying they have successfully performed transmission tests of their codecs applying SIP/RTP protocols according to draft standards from the European Broadcasting Union. Tests involved bi-directional transmission using G.711, G.722 as well as MPEG Layer 2 and Layer 3 audio coding.
