Sonic Foundry, KCMU Speak Codec

Sonic Foundry, KCMU Speak Codec

Sonic Foundry has released a new audio codec that the company claims achieves up to 5:1 compression without sacrificing sonic fidelity.
The codec is initially being offered in the “Siren Jukebox” product but will be included all across the company’s products.
Speaking of codecs, Seattle’s non-commercial KCMU(FM) says it has used its codec to send uncompressed audio over the Internet, or actually, over Internet2, the next-generation network being created for academic and research purposes.
The analog audio is fed to a Windows Media Encoder to create an uncompressed 1.4 megabits per second stream.
