Neural Audio and VoiceAge are promoting the Neural-optimized encoder for AMR-WB+, which is a processing product for Internet service providers and mobile operators.
VoiceAge is a supplier of speech and audio codecs and co-developer of AMR-WB+.
Proponents say the product increases audio quality while reducing bit rate consumption for audio and music download and streaming applications to mobile devices.
Audio CEO Geir Skaaden said the combination of Neural and VoiceAge technology can satisfy demand for high-quality audio/video streaming applications to devices such as mobile phones, digital music players and computers.
The product provides stereo music streaming and download from low bit rates, such as 24 and 16 kbps, up to 48 kbps.
